Fever is the third studio album by Welsh heavy metal band Bullet For My Valentine, released in April 2010 by Sony Music.

Bullet For My Valentine are arguably the biggest British metal band since Iron Maiden. A statement that (still) rankles the more pernickety metal fan, who continues to claim that, because BFMV focus on huge tunes (and have a penchant for syrupy ballads) rather than huge lyrics, they lack credibility. It’s just not true. They simply have more strings to their bow than the average metal band, hence their sure and steady rise to the top.

Bullet For My Valentine are aiming for world domination, and with Fever they may well achieve it.

The military drumming of “Your Betrayal” opens the album with infantry intensity and then some wonderfully crisp riffing gives way to Matt Tuck whispering about insanity and such. This approach is maintained throughout the rolling, pogo-friendly title-track and the fantastically frantic “The Last Fight”. The three make for a brilliant opening trio.

 

Tuck’s lyrics still leave a lot to be desired, and to be honest is the less-appealing side of the Bullet For My Valentine coin. All the songs feature rhyming couplets of lost love at every turn, and repeated refrains that are inescapably, pitifully self-loathing. Luckily, irksome lyrics are always followed up by stunning riffs, and it’s this method that ensures that every song is simple enough to be memorable.

The brightest standout is “Alone”, which rocks to a rampaging riff that courses all the way to its core, it’s sure to give any listener shivers, such is its magnitude.

Despite the lyrics failing to improve upon previous efforts, elsewhere Fever represents a significant step forward. An outstanding set of songs, this collection will raise the temperatures of metal fans across the globe.

Check out the tracks: “Your Betrayal”; “The Last Fight”; “Bittersweet Memories” and “Fever”. 

This special etched vinyl edition double (3 sided) LP with etched side 4 is pressed in Europe on black vinyl.
