Recently, Welsh metalers Bullet For My Valentine had to inform us that their upcoming self-titled album will be delayed due to manufacturing delays as a result of COVID. The band were originally set to release Bullet For My Valentine on October 22, but have now pushed it back to November 5.
To keep up that momentum, the band are gearing us up for their seventh studio album with a fourth single ‘Rainbow Veins’. So far, the band have blown it out of the park with some of their heaviest material yet – namely on singles ‘Knives‘, ‘Parasite‘ and ‘Shatter‘.
‘Rainbow Veins’ pumps the brakes a little bit compared to their last few singles, but don’t worry, things accelerate rather quickly. This track encapsulates gothic elements of Bullet For My Valentine with dragging vocals and eerie riffs. The band bounce into a classic chaotic chorus, similar to the energy we’ve heard on some of the others – there’s definitely a sonic theme happening on the new record. ‘Rainbow Veins’ shifts menacingly two-thirds way in, with the brutal thrash-carnage that we’ve been hearing from them recently. It’s probably not the #1 song we’ve heard so far from their self-titled album, however that head-banging section makes it very much worthy for the record.
