Welsh Metallers Take The North by Storm

Fresh from winning "Best British Newcomer" at the 2005 Kerrang Awards just two days ago, Bullet For My Valentine are one of the UKs success stories of the past year. After years of trying, the band have finally managed to break out of the Welsh Valleys and are set to become even bigger than they already are.

As they walk out on stage, the brutal onslaught of their sound is a refreshing change from the bland music that has taken up much of the Leeds Festival line up this year. Next to only Iron Maiden there's no doubt that Bullet are the most energetic, talented and important band at Leeds 2005.

Whether the band are tearing though their already classic live hits or playing from their unreleased debut album due out very soon, the crowd clap and cheer with every song as if Bullet were headlining the stage rather than simply playing in the middle of the day.

With a melodic and tight low end suppoted by soaring vocals and manic axework, there is no doubt that Bullet For My Valentine are the best British metal on offer right now and they prove that effortlessly with their set this weekend.
