Welsh rock band Bullet For My Valentine have released an official music video for “Riot”, which comes off their upcoming fourth studio album Temper, Temper (out Feb. 12th). The album is being produced by Don Gilmore, who worked on the band’s previous release Fever. You can watch the video below.
Personally speaking, I think it’s a pretty terrible song. It’s the same riff from verse to chorus with some dynamic shifts and then an oddly out-of-place guitar solo. READ MORE
AxeWound has released a video for “Cold”, the first single off their upcoming debut album Vultures, which comes out Oct. 2nd via The End Records (pre-order here). The band is comprised of singer/guitarist Matt Tuck (Bullet For My Valentine), singer Liam Cormier (Cancer Bats), drummer Jason Bowld (Pitchshifter), guitarist Mike Kingswood (Glamour Of The Kill), and bassist Joe Copcutt (ex-Rise To Remain). You can watch the video below.
“It was very intense, very demanding but that’s how we wanted it to be,” reasons Tuck. “No pre-writing, no rehearsing… just booking a studio and going in and doing a song a day. We wanted to capture something that happened right there and then.”
Says Cormier: “The record is great because it’s been made by a bunch of friends who are just enjoying themselves playing together and doing something that’s different to what they normally do.” READ MORE

No better way to let people down than to hype them up first, Bullet For My Valentine is promising their ‘finest album to date’ which is expected to see a release first half of 2010.
“We are almost in the final stages of recording. It has been another long road but it’s been this long for a reason! There have been many obstacles along the way, lots of hard work and long hours in the studio. However, we think that we will produce Bullet For My Valentine’s finest album to date!!!”
“We have written lots of material and we have narrowed down these songs to what we think are the best of the bunch! There are eight tracks recorded and finished so far, from some of the best stuff we’ve ever written. They have all the qualities that you would expect from Bullet but with ’something’ else. A twist! We are all blown away so far with how everything is going. Don Gilmore is an incredible producer and has really helped us develop our sound.
“We do apologize for how long the album is taking but we need this to be right, and we certainly don’t want to rush things and spoil it for your guys. We will get the album out as soon as possible. We will hit the road as soon as possible, and we will see all you crazy fuckers as soon as possible!” READ MORE
