There are so many things wrong with this band that I don’t even know where to start. How about the music? We’re now approaching ridiculous levels of copy of a copy of a copy syndrome here when it comes to Swedish guitar-influenced metalcore riffing. Is there any that chance that the boys of Black Veil Brides have ever listened to At the Gates? Definitely not. In Flames and Soilwork? Possible, but highly unlikely. Shit, it’s possible these guys don’t even own any records by Killswitch Engage or Shadows Fall and that their style is based wholely upon emo-metal  bands like Underoath. So that makes this… a 5th generation rip-off? No wonder it’s so fucking terrible.

When I first saw this video I refrained from making them a “Shitstain” candidate because they’re so young and I felt bad. But fuck it.

Sleeve-tats-as-uniform on the 17 year old singer (bought with daddy’s money)… swoopy haircuts… the sunglasses on the (14 year old??) drummer… the Joker makeup… I could go on. This is like shooting fish in a barrel. Dear Black Veil Brides: when your 15 minutes are up because your 14 year old fans have matured, don’t be surprised.
