    • Bullet for My Valentine - There's something that can be said for a band that has an audience howling way before they step out on stage.  The house lights had not even dimmed for Bullet For My Valentine’s entrance, and the crowd was already chanting song lyrics and attempting to crowd surf – absolutely insane. Once Bullet made their much anticipated entrance the metal heads, moshers, and surfers only grew in their enthusiasm. Through "Your Betrayal" and "Scream Aim Fire," there were more crowd surfers then security knew what to do with.  All the while BFMV shredded the faces of non-surfers. Though there was a good mix of songs performed from all three albums their set seemed a tad bit short, only playing about 12 songs. The crowd clearly loved every minute of every song but there was definitely room – and want – for more.-Lilly Ryden

    "Time to explode," snarls Bullet For My Valentine singer and guitarist Matt Tuck on "Temper Temper", the first single from the band's forthcoming fourth album due out in early 2013.

    That's exactly what Tuck and his cohorts do on this staggering salvo. "Temper Temper" fuses together airtight riffing from Tuck and Michael "Padge" Paget into an all-out assault of pinch harmonics and a distorted beatdown. Michael "Moose" Thomas holds down a stadium-size groove behind the kit, while Jason "Jay" James's bass resounds impressively.

    Coming off 2010's phenomenal Fever, "Temper Temper" sees the group morph into an even tighter and tougher beast. The hook stands proudly alongside the band's biggest with massive infectiousness. Everything else leads up to a fret-burning display that's bound to inspire another generation of shredders.

    With "Temper Temper", Bullet For My Valentine unleash a new metal classic that's simultaneously heavy and hypnotic. This has the makings of being their equivalent of The Black Album and further solidifying them as the genre's 21st century kings. Catch their fire as they explode now…
