BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE -- Metal Hammer, December 2010

I just wanted to share some excerpts from an article and later, interview with Matt Tuck of Bullet for My Valentine from the December 2010 issue of Metal Hammer UK. It's quite provocative, and I'd like to hear what people have to say about it.

COVER STORY: BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE AND THE FUTURE OF METAL

"In spite of venomous attacks from the metal community, the internet and the press, they stand as the biggest British metal band to have emerged since Iron Maiden smashed through the barricades of the mainstream in the late 70s and early 80s." Later the author states that the modern benchmark for what a metal band can accomplish is personified by Bullet.

"It does hurt at times," says Matt after a Brief pause. "I've learnt to deal with the negative stuff that people have to say and that you can't please all the people, all of the time. We've got a huge loyal fanbase at the moment, and that's all that matters really. We've people up because we're selling out venues all over the world."

"We're all one big happy metal family, or we should be, and that gets forgotten sometimes. We're all in the same fucking boat here! Let's all be fucking cool!" - Matt

"It's imperative to consider that a new generation of metal heads have the same horn-throwing passion for The Poison (BFMV) or Trivium's Ascendancy that past generations have felt about Number of the Beast, Master of Puppets or Burn My Eyes."

"For every 10 people who get introduced to our world via a BFMV record, a portion of those fans will become metal heads for life as a consequence of their purchase. Show us someone whose first metal record was At The Gates' Slaughter of the Soul and we'll watch their nose grow a couple of inches."

More to quote, but I'm too lazy to type on this shitty Mac keyboard. What do you guys think?

I know kids who started off listening to Bullet and then progressed into Metallica, Slayer, Bodom, and then into Mayhem.

As long as metalcore acts as a gateway into real metal I have nothing against it.

That's almost as funny as that "Trivium: Destroyers of False Metal" issue that they had a while back.

Actually, from what I remember, my first was a Cannibal Corpse album. Either way it wasn't a metalcore album. I agree with BrutalDescent though, as long as the people get into heavier stuff and realize that there IS heavier stuff out there, then I'm fine with it.

My friend bought this issue and I skimmed through it. The whole time, I was face-palming. Metal Hammer is a fucking joke. I'd say it's worse than Revolver.
