Thank you! I’m not the only person who thinks that this is one long victory chant cut up into 12 or so tracks.

So Very Introverted says:

Did the lead singer start going by a stage name? I always though his last name was something like Biersack. Unless that’s a years old troll I fell for or something.

Jesse Arbogast says:

Black veil brides have always been generic some shit different album

Matthew Skiles says:

Hey Luke, I wanna know, what do you think of their album Wretched and Divine, it’s my personal favorite by them and I wanna know your thoughts.

Oliver Zemo says:

I like bvb but I agree. All their albums suffer from this, if you take their best songs from any album they might have one decent album

jc1424 says:

I’m for a 6/10. The repetition of lyrical purpose and song structure reminds me of Breaking Benjamin’s 2015 album. It’s decent for a long drive in need of metal tunes that aren’t very distracting. Lol

SpookyBarbie says:

This put a lot of my feelings toward this album into words. As someone who does enjoy their music, yeah it’s super generic and the biggest draw is usually Andy with his shirt off. It’s no coincidence he idolizes Gene Simmons. I don’t think I’d skip it on Pandora, but I’m probably not gonna buy it.

Randy K. says:

Wretched And Divine was a good record

Necce says:

The problem with these types of lyrics is that they glorify the “outsiders” or “outcasts.” It’s either “We’re outcasts and we’re gonna prevail against nothing in particular” or “Boohoo we’re outcasts, ignore the other 45 times we talked about how great it was to be an outcast.” There’s nothing in between or any depth on what makes them an outsider or an outcast, or that they’re real people who happen to just not fit in. They’re either fighting an unnamed enemy because of course they are, or they’re talking about how bad it is to be an outcast with no further explanation.

jay jagusch says:

their song in the end got me into the band which is also one of the lp songs that got me into the band with both having the same title of the song but are different songs from each other

Sawbones Quad says:

I saw them live last Thursday. They put on a good performance but geesh no real musical evolution.

Bread loaf says:

This album was not what was teased 2 years ago. At first, we got a very small teaser of quite a heavy Pantera sounding riff, it was unique, and continued being teased later. But what we ended up with, is essentially a sequel to wretched and divine. The album itself was incredibly generic, the format is repeated throughout every song in the album. It was disappointing to say the least.

But hey, the guitar work is good.

Kamikaze Keeg says:

I didn’t mind BVB, a few songs I liked previously, but yeah this seems like really standard fare. Definite pass.

Shapeshifter 95 says:

I fucking agree. I love BVB with all my heart but this álbum its not their best. I am waiting a good fucking album just like Wretched

Demon Rantz says:

I never liked this band honestly

John Bartosiak says:

Motley Crue + Kiss = Black Veil Brides

The Negan Guy says:

Low 4/10 yeah same style it’s like Nickleback repeat pulse it’s BVB you know their shit

Wretneck says:

See the album cover, close your eyes for the review for the song samples… The artwork is too good for the album and the band. Give it to Judas Priest or someone with style

Joran van den Poll says:

Jezus christ, is Andy a giraf or something

Hello!Nurd says:

“wow, this is as generic as it gets!”

Every BVB review in a nutshell.

John Bartosiak says:

I think the WORST part about this band is their fanbase, it’s just completely cringe worthy!!! Are gonna review the new Bloodshot Dawn album?

Nicolas Crump says:

Ok here’s what I don’t fucking get. People like you complain about how a band/artist needs to change up heir music. It’s funny because whenever they do change their music up, you complain about how they need to go back to their old music.. for example, asking Alexandria, bring me the horizon, skillet, shine down, Green Day, disturbed, Eminem And so many more.. you people are fucking hypocrites

AcePlays says:

One of their albums needs to be regretting the past, either “we stitch these wounds” or “wretched and divine”

Gucci Gang is Trash, Try Ode to Sleep says:

Idk why they have a decent sized fanbase. They are just pop rock making generic music and it got them popular. I mean they have legitimate talent but they use it on generic pop rock. Well their early stuff was good but their newer stuff, eh, it’s not that good.

Mr. Rman says:

Can you do a review on Mis An Thrope by Ded

Jorge L. Nieves says:

I have to say, this album is dissapointing, really, We Stitch These Wounds and Set The World On Fire are good albums, but after that, the rest is just the same with the exception of some songs here and there
The reason why I liked Set The World On Fire was because of the variety that album had, it had Speed Metal, Glam, Hard Rock, and was done with way more passion than this album

It’s xHunter says:

10/10 album

JD1710a says:

I don’t want to sound like a mindless hater but I can’t stand this band. To me, they sound and look like Motley Crue if Motley Crue was trying to copy Avenged Sevenfold. Not to mention Andy Black is total crybaby (The Golden Gods 2013 anybody?). I really tried to give this album a fair chance, but it commits the cardinal sin of music, it’s BORING. Generic angsty lyrics, generic guitar riffs, and nothing new to offer. 3/10 for me because their guitarist Jake Pitts does have some talent and a good solo here and there. Hopefully sometime soon his brain will kick in and he’ll realize that he deserves better than this.

Coffee Pot says:

I dislike BVB but i enjoyed this album quite a bit. Some shitty tracks but i like My Vow and Wake Up a lot
