Album Review: Bullet For My Valentine – Venom
Posted by Reggie
After 2013’s Temper Temper I was a bit skeptical about a new Bullet For My Valentine album. When initial reports spread that Venom was more reminiscent of earlier BFMV, I thought it was enough of an excuse to buy new music and give it a try. In short, what I heard was accurate. The new material is much less “pop” sounding than Temper Temper. This can only be a good thing. After numerous spins, I find the first half of the album is stronger than the latter. As the album played on, my interest dwindled a little bit. However, tracks such as No Way Out, Army of Noise, and Broken really kick up the adrenaline. Worthless is one of their anger-management-I-hate-you power ballads BMFV does well. Overall, Venom is a solid BFMV album that should please long-time fans. 3.5 out of 5
