Riff: Bullet For My Valentine – “Dead to the World”

Feb 12, 2013

I’ve craved the feel of your caress/No chance to hold you or hurt you again/I’ve gone way too far this time

from Dead to the World lyrics by Bullet For My Valentine

Conjuring up mid-90s Metallica is not a good idea, especially when they’re looking to establish longevity in the states. At this point it’s hard to take anything BFMV is saying seriously. And it doesn’t help that they are rehashing the same tropes ad nauseam.
