Great Metalcore band. Signed by Trustkill Records in the USA. Currently touring the US. Their lyrics do have an emo side. They however, are NOT emo. And the people who listen to them are definitely NOT emo. Go to their concert, look and see. I saw 1 fat goth guy. No emos. The rest were crazed highschool metalheads.

BFMV Fan: Who's the emo now bitch!?
Asshole: *Takes a gun to his head*
A band from Brigend, Wales. Their main genre is Metalcore, however they do pull from some Emocore. Their guitar is very metalish, and they have some really nice riffs. Their songs contain a lot of screaming, so if you don't like that type of singing, don't listen to them. They are very good live, and put on a great show. They recently released "The Poison", containing their most well-known song "Tears Don't Fall". They have four members, Matthew Tuck, Michael Paget, Jason James and Michael Thomas.
(At a concert...)
Matthew Tuck (frontman of Bullet For My Valentine) : ARE YOU READY FOR SOME BRITISH METAL?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
Person 1: HELL YES I AM.
Person 2: ME TOO.
One of the best bands I've heard yet. Period. They aren't emo, that's gotta be the most stupid label I've heard for their music yet. This is some of the best music I've heard in years, especially compared to all the other crap people listen to.
Check out Bullet For My Valentine at bulletformyvalentine1.com to hear their music
The greatest fucking band of all time!!! Anyone who says they are "emo" should fuck off. These guys are straight hardcore, heavy metal. Besides, there's nothing wrong with "emo" anyway. Matt Tuck is not only an amazing screamer but is a great singer as well and a badass guitarist. Michael "Padge" Paget is, in my mind one of the greatest guitarists in the world right now. Most of his shit is complicated to play and diificult to even think up. Jason "Jay" James is a great bassist who holds the insane rhythm of every Bullet For My Valentine song. Along with this, he is a totally brutal screamer. And last, but not least, Michael "Moose" Thomas is one of the top 5 drummers on the planet in my opinion. Just listen to the drumming in any of their songs. Bullet has 3 albums out right now. First is the 2005 EP, "Hand Of Blood", featurings songs such as "Hand Of Blood", "4 Words (To Choke Upon)", "Just Another Star" and "Curses". Their second, and first full length release is 2006's "The Poison" which includes the songs "Tears Don't Fall", "Suffocating Under Words Of Sorrow", "All These Things I Hate (Revolve Around Me)", "Hit The Floor", And "The Poison". Their latest release, 2008's "Scream Aim Fire" shows the bands more metal side with songs like "Scream Aim Fire", Waking The Demon", "Hearts Burst Into Fire", "Eye Of The Storm", "Disappear" and "Ashes Of The Innocent". Bullet has also covered songs from Ozzy Osbourne (Crazy Train) and Metallica (Creeping Death, Sanitarium). That'...more...
A very good metalcore band that takes influences from bands like Metallica, Iron Maiden and Slayer. They've released two albums so far: The Poison and Scream Aim Fire.
Despite what people say, they are NOT emo. Emo is a style of hardcore punk. If you're going to call them emo because of their confessional lyrics, you might as well call Patsy Cline emo.
Person 1: Bullet for my Valentine is so emo!
Person 2: They are metalcore. Emo is a totally different genre.
