I enjoy this type of metal, although if they had more "emo" sound to them, I may not say the same, not much into the emo sound.

They have a good balance though.

I feel the same way about Atreyu and 36 Crazyfists.

Bullet for My Vallentine really rocks!! I think they are influence by iron maiden, megadeth, metallica, etc, etc.

Quite personally I'm getting fed up of all the press about these guys, its all been;

"Welsh Emo Rockers Break The States!!!!"

As if you guys buying into our copied music scene was somehow original. rolleyes.gif

I really dislike them. Unoriginal and they all look like girls. Taking the fun out of real British Metal. Why do they sing like they do and all sing about heartache and heartbreak. They'll be singing about Heart Beat next the rubbish UK TV show. Although Head Automatica have already beat them to it.

I hate fake metal sorry sad.gif

what the hell is "fake" metal?
What's real metal?
:S
It seems the only band that can "be" metal is Metallica....because metal is in their name....
I don't get fake this and that....doesn't seem to be much real anymore :S

ohmy.gif oh no! not again with the true and the false metal! sad.gif It was enough with Manowar... laugh.gif Where can I get my true metal certificade?... just kidding! I respect your opinions. wink.gif
I think that their first album is an excelent piece of metal. Excelent songs, riffs, solos and melodies. I hope that the new album is so good too! (I'm listening to it at this moment but I'm not too impresed yet blink.gif ... but lets listen to it again!)...

I consider this poserish

I know it's not BFMV, but this is an example of what I mean. I'm not really talking so much about the type of music that they play, but just how they are trying to be so "metal", but just end up being gay. I am talking about A7x right now. Like I said BFMV aren't nearly as bad.

Music from the UK has become very American influenced, we're buying into the same scenes and just copying formula's from the US, Bullet are stupidly similar to bands like Trivium and it annoys me, recently we've had My Chemical Romance exported to us and bought into en masse and its just disappointing, I want something new! laugh.gif

I mean, not that the music is terrible or anything, all of the players in the bands mentioned are by far better than myself, I just dont feel its anything new and they themselves as people dont seem very true to themselves, its all image. tongue.gif

I have not been listening to these guys for very long but I must say I loved "The Poison". Great album. And I would call myself a fan.

I have their new album aswell and for the most part I like it. Bit different from the first. I can see the simularity to Trivium as someone else has mentioned. But it does seem like they want to shed the "metalcore" tag eventhough they still have the screaming lyrics. By this I mean they seem to want to let everyone know that they are Maiden, Metallica, Megadeath influenced (even have a cover of Creeping Death on the deluxe LP) with a bit of hair metal thrown in for good measure. Modernized or course...but Hearts Burst Into Fire could have easily been an 80's hair metal song IMHO. All in all though it's a good album for the drive to work and also to pound some weights at the gym too.

No truer words have been said, IMHO

Personally, I cant stand this band, thereagain, i cant stand most welsh bands. Its this whole 'Emo' fad thats arisen, (albeit that Bullet~ arent Emo, but they are generalized by the amount of 'Emo'orientated people who listen to it) it makes me cringe ><

That said, im not saying everyone who listens to them are Emo

And its not me being racist...

I live, and was born, in South Wales tongue.gif

When I said fake metal I meant by spending more time on image than the actual music. That is fake anything. Metal-Core is not real metal and is a hybrid that is so keen on image I have no time for their music as they are sell outs to the record industry.

And Kiss invented the whole poser thing lol. Although they can get away with it because they are Kiss tongue.gif
