As they prepare to drop their heaviest album ever, Bullet For My Valentine (opens in new tab) return to the cover of Metal Hammer for their definitive interview. We leave no stone left unturned and no question left unasked as we go inside the new, self-titled record, their crazy journey so far and why, after surviving legions of trolls, dodgy album experiments and difficult lineup changes, they remain more determined than ever.

Also inside the new issue, we count down the 25 greatest symphonic metal (opens in new tab) bands ever, featuring Nightwish (opens in new tab), Within Temptation (opens in new tab), Emperor (opens in new tab), Cradle Of Filth (opens in new tab), Epica (opens in new tab) and many more. We also find out how No More Tears (opens in new tab) saved Ozzy Osbourne's (opens in new tab) career, dissect the gruesome new chapter from Ice Nine Kills, give Dani Filth (opens in new tab) the Metal Hammer Interview treatment and find out how Mastodon (opens in new tab) channelled fresh grief into their most emotional album yet.
