Bullet for My Valentine - The Youngsters at Work
Young, hip bands like Bullet for My Valentine are doing well these days. After doing an interview with Michael Thomas (drums) and seeing them play in a big arena as opening act for Metallica I wanted to see them play in a club setting. The 23rd of June I took my chance at the smaller venue of the Tivoli in Utrecht.
As could be expected a lot of young kids showed up and the show was totally sold out in advance. Before the great heroes of the kids started to play they had to see The Analog Project performing their mix of rock and nu-metal. It made me think a lot of Lost Prophets, not only musically but also in the slender appearance of the front man. The band didn’t bring something really special and so thought the audience which only came loose at the last song which was the ‘Killing in the Name of’ cover.
The audience was very excited when Bullet for My Valentine entered the stage and from the first to the last song almost every note was sung along. It’s fantastic to see all these young kids supporting the band for 100%. Especially at the clean sung emotional parts everyone seemed to know the lyrics, but mainly the great solos must be noted for making this a good show. Since they’ve only got one CD out, The Poison, every song of this CD was played, with an excellent sound quality by the way. Bullet for My Valentine played with a lot of passion and gave the audience for which they came for; at the end of this year the second CD will be recorded so let’s see whether their music becomes more mature.
