Never give in…Never back down….Never give in when the fire rises. I would like to address recently that I apologized to Black Veil Brides for being a Black Veil Brides hater. Not many people have the balls to do that. They deserved it. I am so happy that I got their approval and acceptance of the apology. But anyways, I would like to address my recent researching of how biased rock/metal media sites take Black Veil Brides and the hate they get on their.
It just appalls me that people would and even professional journalists would degrade a band that has helped thousands of people throughout the world. Its just insane and appalling. How they take the most stupid things and make a big deal out them. Just recently all the metal/rock media was having a field day cause Black Veil Brides got caught using hollowed out cabs and the use of scrims. ALL bands use this technique. Even journalist’s find a way to show their “Hate” through bogus articles and to get more traffic to their sites. Its beyond insane to me. Oh and all the trolls flock to the sites and have a field day for themselves cause someone agrees with them. People do you have things to do. Like mow your lawns. Take care of your housework. Daily domestic chores. Its just appalling to me. I just don’t get why Black Veil Brides get the amount of hate they get. I know I used to hate them. But I kept my opinions to myself. But the outpouring of hate they get is just over the top insane.
I have been in the BVB army for 6 months now. I can’t believe the amount of love, respect, and devotion Black Veil Brides has for their army and fans alike. I have read countless Tumblr, Facebook, twitter messages, and blog pieces from BVB army members about how Black Veil Brides has helped them through a tough time whether it be from preventing them to commit suicide, self harm, and other negative acts. It brightens my heart to know that these five fine men who are normal walks of life like you the reader and I has helped that fan so deeply. Its very phenomenal and amazing what Black Veil Brides does.
Many members in the BVB army has showed their love and devotion of the band through beautiful art pieces for years. Even though I have been in the BVB army for six months now. I have researched the countless artwork these amazing people do. All the hours and hard work they put in doing their artwork pieces. Some of the pieces are so realistic its so unreal.
Black Veil Brides has done things no other band has ever did. They have done a film about their CD Wretched and Divine: The Story Of The Wild Ones called Legion Of The Black. I previously did a review of it a few weeks ago and still am amazed on how out of the box Black Veil Brides is with their music. They work so hard to put their music out their. Its one hundred percent themselves and their work. They write and play music based on influences and the years of practice they have under their belts. Jinxx is classical trained at playing the piano and violin. Jinxx and Jake Pitts guitar chemistry is one unique riff monster in itself. Their ain’t nothing that can reach or match what Jinxx and Jake’s writes and plays on the guitar. With Ashley’s added unique bass support is one for the taking. Along with CC’s “Take it to the next level” drumming beats. Andy’s guttural screams and his angel singing voice. I would like to say that he is one amazing singer. I have heard a lot singers in my time and he is up in the ranks with legends. I also love the fact that they take part in gang style vocals and how well its done.
Black Veil Brides is one unique band. Want to know why. Here are the reasons. Black Veil Brides lyrical standouts are off the charts and are through the roof. When Andy and or the band writes lyrics. Its pure liquid gold. Every ounce of lyrics they write is inspirational, moving, empowering, fun, educational, healing, helpful, and can save peoples lives. Black Veil Brides is a dream team of 5 normal dudes who came from ordinary backgrounds growing up from being bullied at school to just normal average daily dredge’s of life. Black Veil Brides basically in the BVB army’s eyes are “Super Heros” and are deemed their saviours. They are personally mine too. I don’t know how, what, or even I could live my life without Black Veil Brides now. So glad I apologized as a Black Veil Brides hater and I put the Black Veil Brides hater to death on January 27th of this year.
Black Veil Brides have yet to do even more magical things yet. I look forward to the future endeavors of the band. I honestly get goosebumps to even think about. Black Veil Brides and their famous BVB army will grow even bigger and bigger. I hope someday they do become “The Biggest Band in the World.” With each of their five talents there is no telling what their “Take It To The Next Level” move would be.
Black Veil Brides has helped thousands and thousands of people all around the world with their inspiring messages and powerhouse lyrics. I only hope they continue to save more lives in present and the future. BVB means the world to each and everyone of the BVB army members.
The amount of respect and love they give to their fans online, face-to-face, and in general is one for the books. They connect with their fans each and ever day. Its insane. I never seen a band so active with their fan base in my life. Its truly heartwarming to know that they truly give a shit about us as a whole. Its like winning the band to fan base lottery.
The charity work they do for all sorts of charities is awe inspiring. Andy, CC, Jinxx, Jake, and Ashley are 5 amazing people. It just pisses me off that people take them the wrong way based on first impressions. I hate that these 5 amazing individuals get so much hate and flack for just being themselves. When I see them post a charity link on the internet and if a fan helps promote the fund. I read the comments that other people make its truly sickening and sad. How people have to be so jealous of other people to degrade them like that. These five amazing men give a shit and give back to the community. I just don’t understand all this hate they get.
I see pictures of BVB and fans on the internet of fans meeting them. Some of the pictures are so beautiful and amazing that I cry happy tears for that person. When I read stories of people meeting them or just how BVB saved their life and so forth its amazing to read blog pieces and Tumblr posts like that everyday. I truly cherish reading all the BVB army’s stories. All the artwork floors me.
Black Veil Brides has inspired me to become a rock and roll journalist. I want to become my own rock star doing reviews and article pieces like the one you are just currently reading. P.S. Thank you for taking the time out your busy lives and to read my piece about Black Veil Brides. I only do hope and wish the best for each and everyone of them. I just can’t believe that a band was the key in my finding my person. Falling in love with Black Veil Brides has changed me life completely for the better.
In conclusion, I only hope to one day sit down when I am well educated in interviewing bands and the ethics behind it. To only one day interview Black Veil Brides. Its one of my interviewing bucket list items to do in my life. Black Veil Brides isn’t just a band we are family meaning we are legion, for we are many. Hoping someday they get the recognition they deserve such as awards and standing ovations at award shows instead getting booed and hated upon. Black Veil Brides has helped thousands and thousands of their BVB army members throughout the world through their powerhouse lyrics and inspirational messages. Each and everyone of them have shown their god given musical talents through all three albums of theirs: We Stitch These Wounds, Set The World On Fire, and Wretched and Divine:The Story of The Wild Ones and their Rebels EP. I only wish to continue on being a huge fan of theirs. They mean the world to me as they do to each and everyone of the BVB army member’s. Its insane how one band can changed the whole world. I have no words to describe how amazing each of them are. I only wish the best for them. Best of wishes Black Veil Brides. We all love you.
WE ARE LEGION. FOR WE ARE MANY…..NEVER GIVE IN…NEVER BACK DOWN….. NEVER GIVE IN WHEN THE FIRE RISES… BLACK VEIL BRIDES WILL RULE AND CONQUER. BLACK VEIL BRIDES TILL THEE END. BVB FOREVER AND ALWAYS……………….

P.S. My computer word software somehow changed cabs to amps in the second paragraph. Apologies for the mistake. All I can say is stupid technology now days.
