Bullet For My Valentine’s Matt Tuck Feels Metal Is Currently “A Bit Stale”


Bullet For My Valentine vocalist/guitarist Matt Tuck feels that the genre of metal has become ‘a bit stale’ in recent years. Speaking to Metal Hammer, Tuck shared his thoughts on that and how he and his band tried to combat it with their latest release, “Gravity“:

“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.”
