Download will be Bullet For My Valentine's day


WELSH metalcore band Bullet For My Valentine should get the temperatures rising at this year’s Download with Fever, their latest LP.
Because the album, their third studio outing, is their most stereotypically epic hornthrowing trad metal effort to date, and deserves to be turned up to 11 at the spiritual home of metal music, Castle Donington.
Without trying to be too clever by experimenting with their sound here, Fever cements Bullet For My Valentine's place as the biggest British straight heavy metal band around in 2010.
With added accesibility - and a few power ballads - they do run a gauntlet of cheesiness, occasionally raising a cringeworthy moment lyrically in amongst the relentless guitar grooves, driving drums and tinkling solos, such as on title track and lead single Fever.
But when they hit Donington Park this Summer, headlining the Second Stage on Friday, providing they keep the ballads to a minimum, Fever’s tunes should prove to be mightily infectious.
