The Welsh metalcore outfit Bullet For My Valentine unleashed a sonic assault on the Pageant’s sold-out crowd Friday night. Even though front man Matthew Tuck admitted to suffering the flu, he and his band mates delivered some serious sonic fury. Helping him conquer the flu was a wall of twenty-four Mesa guitar amplifiers, a massive double bass drum kit, and a blinding array of strobe lights. Formidable weaponry and perhaps the cure for the common cold?
