Bullet For My Valentine made their sixth appearance at the Download Festival tonight (June 12).

Playing before headliners Linkin Park in their highest slot at the festival yet, the Welsh metallers played a 10-song set accompanied by a spectacular pyrotechnic show and ending with a firework display.

The band, who are now set for a major US tour, opened their set with 'Your Betrayal', the first track from their 2010 third album 'Fever'. They aired three further tracks from that album including set-closer 'Alone'.

The band were playing after a heavy bout of rain had lashed down on the rock event's site, but still drew one of the biggest crowds of the weekend. They played energetic runs-throughs of early single '4 Words (To Choke Upon)' and 'Scream Aim Fire'.

Bullet For My Valentine played:

'Your Betrayal'
'Pleasure And Pain'
'Waking The Demon'
'The Last Fight'
'Say Goodnight'
'Scream Aim Fire'
'Hand of Blood'
'4 Words (To Choke Upon)'
'Tears Don't Fall'
