Bullet For My Valentine Release Ferocious New Album, ‘Gravity’

Bullet For My Valentine tore up the Main Stage at #DL2018 with a career-spanning set. Today the Welsh metal monsters released their sixth album, ‘Gravity‘ and we can’t get enough of it. Listen to it now and read our review below.

In our interview with Bullet front man Matt Tuck earlier this year he revealed ‘Gravity would have, “a lot of colour, a lot of dark, a lot of light – lyrically and musically it’s a very dynamic, contrasting record”.  It left us dying to get our hands on it and now the day has finally come.

The record is true to Matt’s words and is Bullet’s most complex and earth shattering album to date. Produced by Colin Richards, from the storming opener ‘Leap Of Faith’ it features electronics and synths that beef up Bullet’s already huge sound.

As Matt revealed to us, it’s BFMV’s most personal record as the lyrics delve deep, revealing the pain of his divorce. Third single ‘Over It’ drips with vitriolic passion as thunderous riffs and Matt’s stratospheric screams hype the tension. It does have it’s tender moments as ‘Under Again’ swims with glitchy beats and vocals steeped in melancholic desperation.

Bullet have always been about massive anthems and ‘Gravity’ is rammed full of them. ‘Not Dead Yet’ has the “woah oh ohs” we all love to sing-along to and the infectious chorus of ‘Over It’ is set to go down as a fan favourite.

With ‘Gravity’ Bullet prove what we all knew, six not seven is the magic number. Listen to it now.
