Bullet For My Valentine have released Parasite, the second single from their recently announced self-titled album Bullet For My Valentine.
For Parasite we just wanted to let the song rip,” says director, Fiona Garden. “The intensity and fury of the track tears along, pure performance and vitality. Along the way, in a world defined by blinding light and the phenomenal graphic work of artist Carl Addy, we see this new infinite incarnation of the avatar aM cuts being ritualistically infected and drawn further into limitless oblivion. No locusts were harmed in the making of this video.”
The Guardian called first single, Knives, “a sonic onslaught,” adding that it displayed “gymnastic guitar riffs, snarling vocals and more drum hits in four minutes than across most albums.” Rock Sound concurred, calling it “a vicious and violent slab of ferocious modern metal,” whilst Metal Hammer commented, “BFMV are back in the form of their lives.”
But where Knives arrived like a punch in the face, Parasite is here to disembowel.
The band comments, ““Parasite” is an absolute RAGER from start to finish!!! Easily one of the gnarliest tracks we’ve ever written – we couldn’t be more stoked to finally get it out there.”
Bullet For My Valentine (the album) will be released on October 22 via Spinefarm /Search & Destroy.
“I think it’s the most ferocious side of Bullet For My Valentine that I’ve ever known,” says lead guitarist Michael “Padge” Paget. “It’s time for us to put out a really angry, heavy, aggressive record. I just can’t wait to grimace on stage!”
