The music scene in Wales must be doing something right having produced notable bands such as Funeral For a Friend and Lostprophets in recent years. Also hailing from that same area, Bullet For My Valentine have crossed the Atlantic in hopes of making waves in the States.
Every once in awhile a record comes along that is just plain fun to listen to. After only a few notes it has you bouncing around the room and singing along. The Poison is exactly that. When you combine one part Trivium and one part Killswitch Engage, it's one hell of a concoction.
There's plenty of material to pump your fist to. Take “Hand of Blood” for instance. It is a prefect exhibit of Bullet For My Valentine's sound. Track two, “Her Voice Resides,” is also another highlight of the album. Lead vocalist Matthew Tuck can go from a swaggaring croon to strained growl flawlessly. The ballad “All the Things I Hate” teeters on the edge of 80's hair metal, but ends up on the right side of the fence.
For those that are familiar with Bullet For My Valentine from their EP, you will find mostly new material to inject into your ears. Frankly, I would've liked to have seen reworked versions of “Just Another Star” and “Turn To Dispair” turn up on this album. Though they would be a sure success on a re-release.
