Bullet For My Valentine became one of UK metal's hottest prospects within a year of releasing just one mini-album and a limited edition single on Visible Noise.

Recorded with Funeral For A Friend producer Colin Richardson, Bullet's full-length debut is 54 minutes of twisted, dark, uncompromising metal. Opening with the screamo onslaught of opener Her Voice Resides, The Poison rarely takes its foot from the throttle until the ear-shredding barrage of The End.

From Room 409's note-perfect guitar frenzy to the guttural screams and kick drum fever of the title track, The Poison is an ugly, bloody mess of dense, relentless melodic metalcore, duelling vocal harmonies and chugging guitars, perfect for tinnitus-risking kids everywhere.

Words: Joe Goodden.
