The band has cited being influenced by bands such as Metallica, Annihilator, Pantera, Machine Head, Sepultura, AC/DC, Iron Maiden, Guns N’ Roses, Testament, Stuck Mojo, Korn, Slayer, Judas Priest, Megadeth, Alice In Chains, Nirvana, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath. According to Michael Thomas, these are the bands that inspire Bullet for My Valentine’s “catchy vocals, aggressive riffs, and melodies.”

Bullet for My Valentine “Raising Hell”

It was released on 18 November 2013 as a promotional single to showcase what the band’s future material will sound like. The song is featured as a deluxe edition bonus track on the band’s fifth album Venom. This would prove to be the final song that featured Jason James on bass after the band and he parted ways in February 2015.

When the band arrived in the studio to record this song, it didn’t have a title or even lyrics.

Matt Tuck told Kerrang! magazine: “I don’t really like to write vocals and melodies until the song is complete musically. I just let the music take me wherever I think it needs to go. That’s how I’ve always done it – I get inspired by the music itself. I sit down with an almost finished version and have it by myself for a couple of hours. Until then, I don’t really know exactly how the song will turn out.”

“Raising Hell” live video

Bullet For My Valentine have released a live video featuring a performance of their track Raising Hell. It was shot during the band’s recent tour stop in Birmingham, Alabama, in support of fifth album Venom.

Matt Tuck said last year: “The album is hands down the best thing we’ve ever done. To have that arsenal of weapons now and to be able to play these songs feels sick. It’s good to be back.

That’s kind of what happens in our band. Nothing ever stops. Milestone after milestone and cool event after cool event. We don’t ever do anything which isn’t cool.”

“Raising Hell”  lyrics (album venom)

I feel the fire (fire)
Can’t touch the flames (flames)
This is reality, an infamous game
I taste the blood (blood)
Can’t seem to cave (cave)
The deed is done, but the debt is unpaid

Everyday it seems I’m running from the reaper
Kicking and screaming and going down swinging.
Without my soul, you’re a gun without a trigger.
Fate is unfolding, who made you the king of the dead?

This is a war that can never be won
Let me go!
I’ll fight forever as the heavens fall.
I’m raising hell!

This is a war that can never be won
Let me go!
I’ll fight forever as the heavens fall.
I’m raising hell!

Raising hell!

You got a choice, you digress off your master?!
No restraints, no remorse
Are you hearing this?
You wanna test me?
I know, I’ll destroy you!
Save your breath, nothing’s left
Here I come at you!

Everyday seems like I’m running with the reaper
Kicking and screaming, the demons are singing
Disarray as the grave is getting deeper,
Weakness is showing, I’ll make you a slave for the dead (for the dead)
Slave for the dead

This is a war that can never be won
Let me go!
I’ll fight forever as the heavens fall.
I’m raising hell!

This is a war that can never be won
Let me go!
I’ll fight forever as the heavens fall.
I’m raising hell!

Raising hell!

This is a war that can never be won
Let me go!
I’ll fight forever as the heavens fall.
I’m raising hell!

This is a war that can never be won
Let me go!
I’ll fight forever as the heavens fall.
I’m raising hell!

This is a war that can never be won
Let me go!
I’ll fight forever as the heavens fall.
I’m raising hell!

This is a war that can never be won
Let me go!
I’ll fight forever as the heavens fall.
I’m raising hell!
