Gig Review: Bullet For My Valentine playing The Poison in full, Brixton Academy, 10th Dec 16

I’m going to skip the formalities and let everyone know that this was my 10th Bullet For My Valentine (BFMV) show, with the previous night being my 9th. I’m going to try and not be biased… but I can’t promise anything (because I love them).

I have waited LITERAL years to see The Poison – BFMV’s debut and arguably best album – played live in its entirety. Here’s proof:

And the day finally arrived. I had seen Cane Hill and Killswitch Engage (who were much better on the second night I might add) the previous night, so arrived a little later.

When ‘Intro’ started to play, I swear I almost teared up. The night before the audience had been somewhat dead on their feet, so I was a little nervous that I’d be the only person in Brixton singing my heart out, but I was proven wrong.

The night was designed for fans of BFMV and fans of the album. Track by track, I had more and more fun hearing my favourite ever songs live. People were singing loud, dancing and smiling, and it was probably one of the most fun gigs I have ever been to.

The songs they usually play were perfected, and the songs that had debuted in this tour were incredible. Hearing songs like Room 409 live for the first time was a really exciting experience for fans like me!

They even played their newest single, ‘Don’t Need You’, twice. It fit in so well with the night, and is hopefully a hint that their musical style is about to come full circle.




Get Ready Playlist – August 2016

And here it is, this month’s Get Ready Playlist! It’s been a hectic month for me – I booked a holiday, started a brand new full-time job, and have been trying to get this blog off the ground! Hopefully you’ll enjoy this mis-match of tunes while I continue to figure out the direction I want this blog to go in! 🙂

Get Ready Playlist – July 2016

Welp, here it is, my first monthly ‘Get Ready’ playlist! It’s about an hours worth of songs that I’ve really been feeling this past month, and might have inspired a look or just made putting my makeup on a lot more fun!

Plus I always think music is a nice little insight into someone’s personality, so I guess this gives you a pretty good look at me!
