I Predict A Riot!

Posted: October 22, 2013 in Gigs, Music Videos, News, Record Reviews

Temper Temper is the fourth studio album by the Welsh heavy metal band Bullet for My Valentine released on February 8, 2013 in Australia, and February 11, 2013 worldwide under RCA Records. The album was once again produced by Don Gilmore, who worked on the group’s last album, 2010’s Fever, and was mixed by noted engineer Chris Lord-Alge.

Critical reception of the album has been mostly mixed to negative. Ultimate-guitar stated, “Even the brighter musical moments struggle to get off the ground. It’s a real shame.” Similarly, Dom Lawson of The Guardian awarded Temper Temper two out of five stars, feeling the album “is marred by cynicism and a lack of dirt under its nails.” BBC’s Raziq Rauf gave the album a negative review, finishing with “The Welshmen need to improve on Temper Temper come their next long-player, or they risk lasting damage to a previously untouchable reputation

New track Riot is the type of song that is guaranteed to get any crowd going. It’s catchy and up beat, defiantly mosh pit worthy. Get your air guitars ready because for me the best part is the amazing guitar solo. You just cant help but rock out to.

Bullet will be appearing in Glasgow’s Hydro in early December so make sure you get your tickets. See you all there.
