I saw where the last BFMV thread was closed over a year ago because nobody had anything constructive to say about the band. But, with their new album coming out sometime soon (hopefully), I thought we could use another BFMV thread.

So, DISCUSS

Personally, I hope they go more towards their roots with this new album with more screaming, but keep a lot of the technicality of Scream Aim Fire

BTW, if any of the mods dont think we need another of these threads yet then feel free to close it

I absolutely hated The Poison, only good song was Hand of Blood. Then I got Scream Aim Fire when it came out and although it was a bit generic, I found it to be a good listen. I'll get the new album, but I'm not really sure what to expect. I'd just like for them to try and vary the songs overall.

You would think so. They need more updates. I just hope it comes out soon though

Well, I listened to them to the point of getting sick of them in the first half of '09, gave them a break, and have come back recently to review before the new album.

Basically, I fell in love with the Poison ---
Sure, maybe the lyrics are a bit bland and too straighforward and the message is something some people don't like, combined with their emo-ish persona, but the album spoke to me in a time where that was what I needed to hear, and I still love it now.

I also went back and listened to their early EP stuff ---
Their style then was actually really different, and at times I see potential that they... sort of shifted away from when they made the poison, especially in Turn To Despair (still one of my favorites by them) and Just Another Star (the screaming mostly had a really weird sort of almost nu-metal slightly hip-hop influenced rhythm to it, even though that sounds strange)

And then there's Scream Aim Fire ---
where I felt that they lost a lot of something, gained a little of something else, and generally made some awesome songs to listen to when you're in a simplistic Bad-ass mood, or when you want to hear some really nicely done acoustic versions (Hearts is SOOOO good acoustic). The F&A anthem closer track is also fist pumpingly cool.

And lastly their 'sort of' EP that they put on the Bonus Edition S,A,F ---
Which shows yet another sort of strange direction for them. It's not really going backwards to the poison in sound or style, so I'm not quite sure what to expect from their next album, but I do know that Road to Nowhere is kinda nice and Ashes of the Innocent is really intense.

Also, if you've heard it, their cover of No Easy Way Out (Robert Tepper) is immensely full of win sauce. Their Metallica covers ain't bad either if you like modernized versions of 'tallica songs.

I would say pretty much the worst thing I've ever heard from BFMV is the two bonus songs that got included on the deluxe edition of The Poison. Those kinda sucked.

So what are your thoughts TS?



OH YEAH!
quick edit:
Who Do You Think You Are is pretty awesome... (you guys reminded me of it)
It's a bit simple, but I get the chorus stuck in my head and the pre-solo/solo is pretty cool I guess. I'm mostly impressed by that video because they seem pretty cool live and hold their shit up really well to a live audience.

I think this belongs more into the metal forum than the hardcore forum.
But on topic, I like their Hand Of Blood EP, but everything theyve come out with after that has been shit IMO

Well first of all, I love pretty much everything by BFMV because theyre the band that really got me into metal when I was just a rock person, and even though I like a lot heavier and more metal stuff now, I still love listening to and playing some bullet.

Now, the poison is my favorite album by them as of now because its got everything. It has heavier songs like Room 409 and Her Voice Resides, and it has some softer stuff and a lot in between.

I just recently got the Scream Aim Fire Deluxe edition CD and heard a few new songs that I must have missed before, like Deliver Us From Evil (which is now my favorite song). I really like the guitar on this album but I wish it had more screaming.

As for the new song, I love the main riff and the solo. As far as singing goes, its good for what it is but again screaming would have wen really well with the verse of that song

The only thing I have to say is I recorded at the same studio they always record at, and touched a cat that matt tuck almost payed 2k for.

cheers for the link matt, song sounds pretty good i reckon, the guitar harmony after the second chorus is just pure bullet, something that i reckon was missing a bit from SAF. Also the solo was pretty good, it fitted the song nicely.

Does anyone else reckon that the picture that Pag has below his bridge on his guitar kinda looks silly?, but the rest of the guitar is mean as, especially the fretboard

I swear that Jay has put on weight, and he looked better with short hair lol

Btw this song is being released on the radio in March i think.

This basically sums up everything i think of BFMV.

I used to be really big into them when Scream, Aim, Fire came out but since then have gotten bored of them. I'll probably get back into them when their new CD comes out.

Scream, Aim, Fire had some really ****ing good scream in it i thought and hope they don't change much and the production was perfect IMO.

in case you guys don't know I F*CKING LOVE BULLET! goddamn this album better come out soon.

and I agree with what just about everyone said. Scream Aim Fire was a bit of a step backwards. hopefully they go back to their early sound with this album. new song sounds sick.
