Bullet For My Valentine’s Matt Tuck Says Metal Has “Gone A Bit Stale”

During an interview with Metal Hammer, Bullet For My Valentine’s Matt Tuck said he believes metal has “gone a bit stale.” You can read his thoughts on that below:

“I am never going to turn my back on metal, because it’s been my life for 20-odd years, but for me as a songwriter in the genre it’s all gone a bit stale. I’ve got to an age now, 38, where unique instrumentation and the way albums are produced and written has become more appealing to me. Someone like Muse’s Matt Bellamy can take a guitar and turn it into anything he wants it to be. Being in a metal band and watching 100 other metal bands, everyone’s using the same kind of techniques, scales and guitar tones – genre-standard things. For this new record, we’re trying to be different.”

Bullet For My Valentine’s Jason Bowld Says He Turned Down Playing In Ghost

During a chat with Alternative Press, Bullet For My Valentine drummer Jason Bowld revealed that he was approached about joining Ghost in 2016, but he ended up deciding not to take the gig. He said the following about that: “At the end of 2016, I got asked to join another band, which I didn’t want to do—a band called Ghost. It just didn’t feel right.” He also added:

“Bullet came along that same week. I started playing with the band in 2010 as a session drummer, filled in and didn’t think anything else after that. Then Matt called me at the end of 2015. A week turned into a month, a month turned into three months and here I am. It feels like a natural progression. Shit happens in bands all the time, and you just have to move on with it. I’m the new drummer and loving it, quite frankly.”
