As soon as the feedback at the start of opening track Hand of Blood gives way to the meaty guitar riffs and pounding drums you smile to yourself and you know this band will be something very special in the years to come. The name, and the fact they come from Wales, gives you the impression that they will be an emo band, they're not. Old school metal riffs, multi-layered vocals and anthemic, fist pumping choruses leave you feeling at the end of the album that it was too short and that you want more. BFMV are often lumped in with the rest of the metalcore brigade such as Avenged Sevenfold and Atreyu, in the ridiculous need for bands to be pigeon-holed and categorised. However, neither of those bands hit levels of this quality on their first albums, never mind their EPs. None of the songs are weak, although 'Hand of Blood' and 'Curses' stand out as being the best tracks, and the new single Four Words to Choke Upon (not included on the EP) continues this trend of excellent quality. We can only hope that the full length album will be released very soon.
