Riff: Bullet For My Valentine – “Leech”

Feb 12, 2013

You’re so delusional, yea/Go and feed your appetite/And gorge on the weak to relieve your lies

from Leech lyrics by Bullet For My Valentine

Tuck draws the not so subtle comparison between negative influences and leeches. He seems to take pride in these elementary analogies. And together – with the inanimate guitar riffs, and phlegmatic chorus – it flounders around like a fish out of water. BFMV is in desperate need of a reality check.
