UK metal masters return with masterful thrashed up first single from VENOM.
Bullet For My Valentine get heavy on "No Way Out," the first single from their forthcoming fifth full-length studio album, VENOM [RCA Records], hitting stores on August 14. Following the slamming brilliance of 2013's Temper Temper, the group—Matt Tuck [vocals, guitar], Michael "Padge" Paget [guitar], and Michael "Moose" Thomas [drums]—resurrect the intricacies of thinking man's thrash and modernize it like never before. As a result, the boys have built a 21st century of equivalent of Metallica's Master of Puppets or Megadeth's Rust in Peace (Bonus Tracks) here. "No Way Out" illuminates that a hundredfold.
With production by Carl Brown and Colin Richardson [Slipknot, Machine Head], the album sees them primed to properly take over heavy metal. "No Way Out" couples mind-blowing guitar playing and shredding that never repeats, but rather weaves an intricate attack, with some of Tuck's most potent and powerful lyrics.
