THE ALBUM OF THE DAY
BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE...Temper, Temper (2013)
Temper, Temper is the latest album from Bullet For My Valentine and is currently at number 13 on the U.S. Billboard album charts. This is a in-your-face hardcore heavy metal. It is loud, it is raunchy, it rocks and I liked it much more than I thought I would. I'll give it a 2 1/2 out of 5 stars and recommend it. It's nothing groundbreaking whatsoever, it's just a rockin' album to have a good time to, definitely something for twenty-something year olds. No tracks really stand to me as highlights, however the most interesting track is their cover of the AC/DC classic "Whole Lotta Rosie".
