It feels like it was only yesterday that Bullet For My Valentine announced that their seventh studio album would be released on October 22 this year. Accompanied with the mega-heavy anthem ‘Knives’, it seems as if the Welsh metal leaders are out to destroy this year.
And destroy they will, especially with the follow-up single ‘Parasite’. Holy shit. If you thrashed ‘Knives’ a billion times on opening weekend, this next track will see you throw down harder right in the middle of your lounge room. Those riffs hit you like a tonne of bricks, and you just have no choice but to let fucking go of everything in sight. ‘Parasite’ sees Bullet For My Valentine back on top, delivering some of the biggest, thrashiest guitar solos and breakdowns I’ve heard all year. Lead guitarist Michael Paget claims:
“I think it’s the most ferocious side of Bullet For My Valentine that I’ve ever known. It’s time for us to put out a really angry, heavy, aggressive record. I just can’t wait to grimace on stage!”
With the rest of the band sharing their utmost excitement for their next release:
“‘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.”
Play, rinse and repeat this absolute thrasher of a song. This is the headbang of the year, and I’m already waiting for even more.
