Like most bands that have everything going for them, Black Veil Brides hasn’t been earning unanimous support since its first beats in 2006. This fifth album shouldn’t make a big difference, but it doesn’t really matter since it should sell like hot cakes, even more than the previous ones. If the whole sounds like what we called power metal not so long ago, and that we label as modern rock almost everywhere, the most relevant label would rather be “heavy pop”. On the fourth album, Black Veil Brides(or IV for some), BVB admittedly push the boundaries a little too far by recruiting Bob Rock, producer of the golden age of Mötley Crüe (their main and admitted reference) and most of all of the extremely famous “Black Album” from Metallica. And we know that the concerned party is unparalleled when it comes to making the most obscure hardcore band bankable. The result was a much too consensual album and above all infinitely too distant from the metalcore roots of the band, or rather the roots of its founder, singer Andy Biersack.
