Jase drops se­ri­ously heavy grooves to lift the Welsh met­allers’ sixth al­bum

BFMV’s lat­est al­bum of met­al­core may­hem ben­e­fits hugely from the awe­some drum skills of Rhythm’s own Ja­son Bowld, who has been a tour­ing mem­ber of the band since 2016, re­plac­ing orig­i­nal drum­mer Michael ‘Moose’ Thomas. Any­one fa­mil­iar with Jase’s pre­vi­ous work with Pitchshifter, Ax­e­wound and oth­ers will know that he’s a beast of a drum­mer; hard hit­ting, pre­cise and ex­tremely skilled. And here on his first record­ing with the band, he’s in full flow on the riff­ing met­al­core of ‘Let­ting You Go’ and hold­ing it down for the hooky ‘Over It’ be­hind Matt Tuck’s melodic vo­cal stylings and the band’s an­themic gui­tar parts. On ‘Leap Of Faith’ he kicks things off with blasts of syn­co­pated, hard-hit­ting beats fol­low­ing the rest of the band and punc­tu­at­ing the tunes with power and some wicked tom/snare grooves. On ‘Piece Of Me’ his fu­ri­ously busy rhythms make for a truly ad­dic­tive groove. This band are the per­fect fit for Jase, who is un­doubt­edly one of the UK’s best heavy rock play­ers. Come back next month to read our cover in­ter­view with Jase! (CBu) Ex­tras: ‘PieceOfMe’ Goto: www.bul­let­formy­valen­tine.com
