BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE Frontman: Getting Kicked Off ROB ZOMBIE Tour Boosted Our Record Sales - Dec. 18, 2006

Revolver magazine reports in its February 2007 issue that BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE's latest album, "The Poison", catapulted the band into the U.K. limelight. Within no time, they found themselves being mentioned in the same breath as AVENGED SEVENFOLD and TRIVIUM, two other young bands that wear their love for old-school metal on their tattooed sleeves.

"The three biggest bands of the moment, that have got the biggest buzz and are making the biggest impact, are us, TRIVIUM and AVENGED," BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE frontman Matt Tuck told Revolver. "We've known them for, like, two years now, but we really got close with them this summer, when we all opened for METALLICA in Europe and played a lot of the same festivals. We're all very ambitious young men — we all have the same goals. And there's no rivalry. We all hang out, get drunk, and it's just cool. There's no bullshit.

"It seems like it's kind of meant to be, like it's part of a cycle," he continued. "You've got GUNS N' ROSES, METALLICA and IRON MAIDEN, and now there's us, TRIVIUM, and AVENGED. AVENGED have the GUNS N' ROSES thing, TRIVIUM have the METALLICA thing, and we've got the MAIDEN thing. It just seems right, in a spooky way."

In addition to the aforementioned METALLICA gigs, BULLET scored what Tuck describes as "dream-come-true" opening slots with GUNS N' ROSES and IRON MAIDEN in 2006. They also opened a U.S. tour for ROB ZOMBIE and LACUNA COIL, though their participation in that particular endeavor came to a premature close after Tuck posted a rant on BULLET's official message board calling the ZOMBIE camp "money-grubbing fucks" for forcing the other bands on the tour to sell their T-shirts at inflated prices.

"A fan was bitching on our web site about the T-shirt prices and how short our set was," guitarist Michael "Padge" Paget explained. "They were doing price-matching on the shirts, and it was all totally out of our hands, so Matt just kind of told him the truth of how it was. And that was then put up on Blabbermouth [see previous BLABBERMOUTH.NET stories: Story#1, Story#2, Story#3, Story#4], and someone e-mailed it to Rob Zombie himself. It was a misunderstanding, but Zombie wanted us off the tour, so we left."

"I'm not proud of it, but it didn't hinder us in any way at all," Tuck said of the Zombie incident. "If anything, it helped us — the album sales shot up the week afterward! And then, the three weeks we had back home because of that, we wrote a whole bunch of new songs that are going to be on our next album."


Seems like this guy is out of his mind.

Good luck.

Thanks.....I really needed your support. :huh:

....these guys would be a lot better if they didn't have the guy singing. They should just do full screams.

"You've got GUNS N' ROSES, METALLICA and IRON MAIDEN, and now there's us, TRIVIUM, and AVENGED.


Bullet are good.. however they have had 1 album.. how can they have such a high opinion of themselves with 1 album?

Avenged Sevenfold and Trivium have had 3 albums each.. with Avenged currently working on their 4th.. now how can BFMV compare themselves with Trivium and Avenged Sevenfold, let alone GNR, Metallica and Maiden? :drevil:

Matt Tuck needs a reality check

they're a bunch of cocky lads. i think they need a lot more fame to be this cocky. i didn't think they were good when i saw them but they were better than funeral for a friend :scared: , they were just painful :no:

i remember i was dragged into the pit for BFMV and some poor soul had his head split open during the first song :lol:

I think he's just saying how they are part of the new wave of the best metal bands around :huh: and the "we've got Maiden" I still think he's just talking about influence and stuff cause he says about Avenged having Guns, and everyone knows that Avenged basically worship gnr, and Trivium have extremely high respect of Metallica, having toured with them and such...

There's no way these guys are the new wave of metal. None of them are particularly great.

....correct me if I'm wrong.. :huh:
