Scream Aim Fire is the second studio album by Welsh metal band Bullet for My Valentine. It was released on January 28, 2008, as stated in Kerrang!. The band stated that this album would be considerably heavier than their previous album. Scream Aim Fire has fewer screaming vocals than it's predecessor, partly because of the problem lead singer Matthew Tuck had with his tonsils. Most songs are in D Standard Tuning, as opposed to The Poison, which was recorded in Dropped C Tuning. Since its release, it has sold over 300,000 copies in the US.
