After the huge success of bands like Bullet For My Valentine and Avenged Sevenfold, there’s a new wave of bands who are trying to follow them by replicating the classic rock & metal sound that made the aforementioned bands so successful. Rising bands like Heaven’s Basement and The Defiled take the vintage style and mix it with their own to make something new, and are reaching success doing so. If a band fail to mix the formula with something new, it can feel uninspired. Fuckshovel fall into this trap, the lack of something new is a huge let down for their debut album, ‘This Is What We Are’.
