Oh, how sweet it is. This is akin to to when Metal Sludge unearthed photos of the members of Korn in their prior bands with blown out hair and spandex. Yup, Bullet For My Valentine, the controversial metalcore outfit from South Wales, UK, used to be in a shitty nu-mteal band — and boy do we mean shitty. Matt Tuck sounds like an off-key Stephen Richards, the drummer speeds things way up during the pre-choruses, and wow, this is just terrible. Change their name, haircuts, clothes, and bass player and presto, Bullet For My Valentine was born. Blabbermouth commenter Aggroculture summed it up best: “so they were sub Lostprophets nu-metal mooks. no surprise there.”
Here they are, jumping around like goons, in all their glory: Jeff Killed John.
