Black Veil Brides – Wretched and Divine: The Story of The Wild Ones CD Review

Black Veil Brides – Wretched and Divine: The Story of The Wild Ones CD Review

Black Veil Brides get the honor of being the first official CD review of the year for Auditory Slam. I was passed a review copy of the new CD so as to write a review of the new material.

I first became aware of this band when they released Set the World on Fire. I then went back and listened to their previous material. One thing that became very obvious was that this was a band that was getting better with each release. You could hear the maturation in their sound and style.

So, how does Wretched and Divine stack up? Pretty damn well, in my personal opinion.

The dynamics of this CD are incredible. It’s a perfect balance of old school 80’s inspired glam rock mixed with lots of modern rock production and flare a la Avenged Sevenfold. Singer Andy Biersack sounds incredible here whether it’s on the faster, heavier tunes or the more laid back cuts.

I Am Bulletproof, Wretched and Divine, and Nobody’s Hero rock with abandon. Done For You and Lost It All have a more emotional, stripped back feel. The guitars are sharp, the songs are filled with giant hooks, and the overall production quality is flawless. I particularly love the guitars on this. The solos just cook.  The drumming is also exceptionally good.

CONCLUSION: Black Veil Brides are the band that Motley Crue wishes they could STILL be.  If you’re looking for a band that’s going to lead the charge into the next generation, look no further. These guys are the real deal. Now, turn this on, turn this up, and ROCK OUT!

SCORE: 10 out of 10

STANDOUT TRACKS: I am Bulletproof, We Don’t Belong, Nobody’s Hero, In The End
