Black Veil Brides - Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones

Black Veil Bride's has come quite a long way since they began way back when. Now upon their third album, "Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones" a concept has commenced  with 19-tracks several  of which featuring the proclaimed "F.E.A.R. Transmissions" occurring throughout being an intermission if you will.

While the rest is the portrayed material having various tracks be the pick of the matter "I Am Bulletproof", "Days Are Numbered", "Nobody's Hero", and current single "In The End". This isn't where the music stops though, this concept is so massive that it goes into becoming a feature full entitled "Legion of the Black" "The film follows a group of rebels known as "The Wild Ones" as they defend their hearts, minds and bodies against F.E.A.R".

Material-wise is classic Black Veil Brides style but more musical driven than ever before. Andy Biersack's vocal presents is clearly stated but not in the screaming fashion he's known for, less screams aren't present here which is a bit of a downfall for those who may enjoy those perks.

Several guest appearances made their presents known from Will of Aiden/William Control to Bert McCracken of The Used and Juilet Simms of Automatic Loveletter. Will being the center focus, him taking the role of the "F.E.A.R." voiceover found throughout the release.

Several things do come from this release that make it worth wild if you will, the catchy riffs, solos, and choruses used are worth listening to, whereas the repetitiveness which made the 80s music famous is attempted quite a bit.

Black Veil Brides is one of those acts that are still within the up-and-coming rank having their draw of sounding like Kiss meets an emo version of what Nickelback would possibly sound like. It makes the listen worthy even if you weren't a fan to begin with.
