Bullet For My Valentine Reflect Back On Difficult Poison Days

Bullet For My Valentine

(Metal Hammer) Bullet For My Valentine have recalled the disastrous studio sessions with Garth Richardson that saw them living on "one boiled egg a day." The Welsh metal outfit were recording their now classic debut album The Poison with producer Colin Richardson at Chapel Studios in England when their record label Visible Noise asked them to travel to Canada to record singles with renowned producer Garth 'GGGarth' Richardson.

Both excited and terrified by the prospect, the young band found themselves in financial dire straits in Canada, barely having enough money for food. They were also stunned by GGGarth's work on the songs - and not in a good way.

Frontman Matt Tuck tells Metal Hammer: "Garth is a lovely guy, but his vision wasn't for us. He was making us record with the engineers, then he'd take it and f*** with it, and then play it back and have all these crazy delays on the vocals.

"I don't know whether he was smoking too much weed at the time, but it just wasn't working. We were basically left there to fend for ourselves as well. We didn't have a car, him and his staff were living in this huge house, and we were in this shed in the back garden."

Guitarist Michael 'Padge' Paget adds: "We started to run out of money, and we were eating a boiled egg a day. There was no budget for food. Garth was taking our songs to a completely different place. It was like, 'What are you doing? This is our baby!' So it started unfolding pretty bad. Tensions were high because everybody was hungry and away from home." Read more here.
