Second Chances: A Black Veil Brides and BVB Army dedication!

I was inspired by this article by Mandy on twitter. She has helped me among others counsel me to the point where they helped get rid of the BVB hater I once was. This month will be my one year anniversary of being in the BVB army what better way to celebrate it than in a positive light and in teaching or advice manner. Mandy, Amy, and Cindy helped me and give me that well need slap or cold water in my on my face to wake my up. They talked me out of the guilt and shame of being a past BVB hater. The passed is no more and I am ready to live the future and present. Without them I have no clue what I would do. I will express my opinions, advice, and inspiration to people who are afraid to take that step into giving things a second chance even if you absolutely hated it before. I will talk about my experience and counter-act it so that you the reader can use it as your own advantage point to try new music, food, etc.

On January 27th of last year was forever a changing day in my life. I planned on ending my life that day but I ended up killing the BVB hater that was inside of me. I had written my suicide note in full on a document on my computer and obituary. I was going to end my life cause I was tired of being in pain all the time twenty-four seven three hundred sixty-five days out of the year due to my permanent headache conditions that make life a living hell. It wasn’t till a cancer scare sent me over the edge to further go with my plans of doing the disheartening deed. It wasn’t until my plans go intercepted by a band that I did not particularly like at the time I was at my wit’s end. All lost hope was gone. I clicked on they’re video cause I was in a shitty rock bottom mood. But what happened was beautiful. I am still lost for words on it. Andy spoke to me the fucking BVB hater who was going through shit that his fan base has some struggles with. Him and his band mates reached their hand out to me. Told me it was okay. Sometimes we all fall down. To never give in, never back down all in the music video “In The End”. Every inch of my heart that falsely hated BVB was filled with love, admiration, inspiration, respect, and support. They rose me from the ashes and helped guide me on that path that I should have been on cause I was a lost soul for years. I am proud to be a BVB army family member. I have been utterly blessed with love each day by the lovely members of BVB army and who they are as people. I love them all so very much. With all my heart.

YOU the reader can rise from the ashes and have your New Years Day too. Again try new things. Unlike I did I tried a band out for a “Second” time in a disheartening circumstances. BVB where their when I needed someone the most. They understood me and understood what I was going through.  They still even help me out. I can’t believe the wonder and power behind their music. They are one of a kind band. One that can’t be re-created. They have that spark, powerhouse, and magic about them that makes them such an epic fucking band live and I can’t even explain it on CD.

Many people have asked me, told me, or yelled at me. Why do you like this band? Black Veil Brides is a faggot ass band why do you like them so much? You should kill yourself if you like Black Veil Brides so much? How on earth can you stand those freaks? Are you retard? Etc?

What I will aptly reply to all of that. Do your research about the band. Listen to their music. Get educated. Even before you come to me ask me those questions. It’s quite stupid day in and day out to read, hear, or behind someones back receive hate that is just stupid to begin with. So do the world a favor and get educated.

My thoughts on “Second Chances” everyone deserves them. Even the dreaded Black Veil Brides haters. Why? The BVB haters cause some of them are just guided into wrong crowds or social interactions in life. Plus some of the biased media plays a huge role in falsely making BVB haters. Some of the media asshats wants you to believe that BVB are monsters, their out to get you, they are terrible people, and they make shitty music. That they do so and so. When in doubt they do the exact opposite. People, bands, things, etc ALL deserve a “Second” chance whether you like it or not at the time. I absolutely hated BVB falsely not knowing the reasons I hated them were all plagued by the media and people I was hanging out with via the internet. I got rid of those people by extensive research, deleted people out of my life on my social medias, and then started my new life with the BVB army.

It’s quite simple go on the internet preferably on Spotify or YouTube. Type in keyword: Black Veil Brides, Potatoes, or what the fuck it is your afraid or need to put F.E.A.R in its asshole.  My whole world changed when the magic and love of Black Veil Brides music was let in my heart. It was a very beautiful day to be certain. I didn’t go see the clouds that day. The BVB hater that I was did. People who give “Second Chances” to things are amazing people.

It’s just like people who give a dog or kitty cat a “Second Chance” rescue them from the shelter and adopted them. It’s very heartwarming that the person or person’s took that animal into their home to give it love, shelter, and food. So why can’t this happen to people too. Give pets and people “Second Chances”. You may never know YOU might get a grumpy cat person to adopt or the next Lil Bub.

What has my “Second Chance” by allowing Black Veil Brides music into my heart. Its given me friends from all over the world I can count on. Its given me my life back. Its helped me find my person. Its helped me find who I am in the world. Its helped me guide myself to finding my future career which you are reading the words now of it. Its has completed me. Its helped me in ways I can’t explain. I am forever grateful, thankful, and every most overjoyed Black Veil Brides and the BVB army came into my life. YOU all deserve some sort of potato plaque with loads of potato made products.

A “Second Chance” doesn’t mean the end of the world is coming. It means that you are open-minded and stepping out of the box of what is normal. People often think its okay to just live with monotonous lives. People can live that way. I have no problems with it all. To each their own and to their own opinions. Which by the way you are entitled to. I will respect it and you shall respect mine. But don’t have it so it crosses the line period. But people live such monotonous lives that they don’t even try. I am glad I have grown up with a sense of an open mind. So it’s not the end of the world to try something new. Even if it’s once in a while.

Even if you have to give it a third chance so be it. Do what you please. Sing the songs you love. Eat the food that pleases you. Do the activities that make you happy. Do what makes YOU happy. Cause at the end of the day, I am quoting Andy Biersack here, YOU are your own best fan and YOU don’t want to hurt that person. 😉 Treat YOU right. Get help for self harm, suicidal tendencies, etc. Cause its better to have done it verses than I am “Thinking about” it.

I truly hope the best for every one of my readers that comes along and reads my articles old and new. It means a lot to me. Each reader sincerely means the world to me. I can’t explain to all of you that. This is to some of the most lovely fans out their who believed in me when no one else did. Thank you. Here is to your “Second Chances” cause you all deserve them too from people. I wish you all the best wishes in the world along with Black Veil Brides and their families/friends.

I will wrap this article up telling you all what is coming up in with “The Potato Queen” in 2014.  I am hoping to go back to college this year to get a business degree and a minor in either English or creative writing. Preferably creative writing. I hope everything works out cause I had to take an infinite withdrawal from college back in 2011 for a while to get myself well cause I have 6 chronic illnesses and 5 of them are permanent. 2 are life threatening. I have been through so much medically and this a little glimmer of hope that I have for myself In hopes that I can make it in the world without feeling like a failure in society cause of being constantly sick as fuck 24/7 around the calendar. Nothing makes me proud and internally happy than writing. Knowing I have a huge potential in making it as a huge rock and roll journalist proves that “Second Chances” are infinite and real. It’s a true blessing and one that changed my life forever. To know I can get a degree that isn’t going to stress me the fuck out and put my health in to jeopardy is a blessing disguise. This all happened and in thank you’s of Black Veil Brides. I couldn’t thank them enough if I were to meet them face to face. They mean the world to me. I am happy and blessed that I became a loyal fan of theirs. I am overjoyed. Words can’t express my gratitude towards Black Veil Brides, what they stand for, and who they are because they are wonderful, epic , crazy, kind, gentle, beautiful, charismatic, cheerful, supportive, and loving human beings inside and out.

NEVER GIVE IN..NEVER BACK DOWN..NEVER GIVE IN..NEVER BACK DOWN…WHEN YOUR LIFE FEELS LOST(FIGHT AGAINST ALL ODDS!).. NEVER GIVE IN..NEVER BACK DOWN- BLACK VEIL BRIDES

My life begins: A Thank You to Black Veil Brides and the BVB army!

Image

They say a picture or in this instance a screenshot is worth a 1,000 words. Well this is worth a million. Just them saying this to me has inspired me for a lifetime. I am thankful and honored to have the Black Veil Brides guys to have read my article(s) and approve of my writing. I also have to say thank you to the BVB army for always supporting me, backing me, and loving what I write. I am very appreciative, grateful, supportive, respect, honor, and love each and everyone the people who has given me positive feedback of my articles. I am over the moon at the moment.

I have so much love and respect for Black Veil Brides it’s not even funny. They changed my life on three separate dates 1/27/13, 10/3/13, and 12/11/13. This year has been a big year for me. Its funny. I came into 2013 with NO New Years Resolution and now I will end 2013 on a big note that being said, I found my person, I found the career I want to do for the rest of my life, and one being able to breath in my own skin again and loving the person who I am.

Black Veil Brides is not just a band. It’s a community of belonging. Where outcasts, disenfranchised, and not so popular youth, adults, and the elderly. Black Veil Brides help lost souls find their belonging in the messed up society. A society where life’s dredgers are at times cruel to good people. Black Veil Brides help those in the BVB army find who they are as people. People who are lost, don’t know where they are going in life, and just need guidance in life. I have seen the beauties of this band inspire a lot of people through artwork and through their own writing either through journalism, story writing, or wanting to become a musician.

Black Veil Brides is the greatest thing to ever happen to me in my life. I have never felt this way about any band before. They carry something rare and magical about them that people can’t recreate. Their meaning and power behind their lyrics is empowering and inspiring for 3 million plus BVB army members. I am just one of them to have been touched very deeply by their music and lyrics.

I am so happy to have this wonderful band in my life. They get so much hate and I just don’t get it. I have put the past behind me now, I have the future and present to look forward too. I can’t wait to go to college to see my options on what I can do to jump-start my journalism career. I can’t wait to show the world what I am capable of cause all my life I was told I could not through doctors and bullies. I have believers now that believe in me that I can do this. I WILL. I have stay strong this far. Their ain’t no stopping. I can do more and more. I have more things I want to do. Music is such a beautiful thing to ever happen to me. Because of music I can live my life in such a way that I can not be bothered with what people negatively say about me(LOL do not pay attention to them any ways, screw them). I have so much respect, appreciation, and love for music.

Bands like Black Veil Brides deserve a lot of recognition in the world but the world can be cruel at times cause they do not understand Black Veil Brides message and what they stand for as band for who they are. It pisses me off at times that they are not getting the level of recognition they deserve and it was seen at the Golden Gods Awards 13′ when they did win an award that us lovely BVB army voted for them. I want to see a room full of standing ovations instead of boos. I have so much respect and support for what Andy said at the GG 13′. People have seem to lost respect any more. So I wish for further award shows that BVB attends they do get at least an applause or standing ovation instead of WWE or WCW booing and heckling.

I also want to see in the coming year of 2014 “Some” BVB haters repenting. Not all of them are going to like BVB. They can have that opinion all they want. I am entitled to my opinions and they are entitled to theirs. Some BVB haters might have been led wrong and read things that are not true about the band. So that is something I would like to see.

I would like to end this little article on a thank you note. I never got to do this before but its a special shout out and honoring those who have my back. I love you all. It means the world to me that you all support, believe, and love my writing. I only wish you all the best in life and best of wishes.

I still have no words as to what happened on 1/27/13.10/3/13, and 12/11/13. I will forever love, respect, admire, support, be grateful, thankful, and honor what Black Veil Brides does for their fans and still does this very second. To know one band does truly care and makes the lives of their fans that much better including mine is greatly needed in the world. Rock and Roll may be anemic but it’s not dead. I hope Black Veil Brides puts the iron in the influx into this dying music scene. I love you Black Veil Brides. Words can not express my love for you all. I only wish you all the best in the happenings of Black Veil Brides endeavors and to you all individually. I hope one day you can dominate the world and be the biggest band in the world.

I want to express my gratitude and thank you to Black Veil Brides again for helping me rise my writing from the ashes. Giving me the tools to be creative again. Be comfortable in who I am creatively wise. Because you guys my future career is set and I am going to master it and work my ass off for it. Thank you for inspiring me so much so that I can not be voiceless person in the crowd. I am going to stand up and tell people what I believe in. I am grateful for the fact that such inspiration has been given to me in this screwed up world we are in. It’s very beautiful in fact. I have not written a thing creatively wise in 5 years. You guys showed up in my life and revamped my creativity so much so that It jumped to me wanting to start a career out of it. No amount of thank you’s can be said enough. Best of wishes to you BVB. I love you all.

NEVER GIVE IN, NEVER BACK DOWN, NEVER GIVE IN, NEVER BACK DOWN, WHEN YOUR LIFE FEELS LOST(FIGHT AGAINST ALL ODDS!) NEVER GIVE IN, NEVER BACK DOWN… AND…RISE UP AND CELEBRATE YOUR LIFE.

P.S. YOU are all amazing. Just wanted to say that. ❤

Black Veil Brides: The hypocrisy and lies of the internet( A band of extreme hate exposed as great band to society)

I was once a deemed hater of Black Veil Brides. A band known of its wide-spread hate throughout the internet through many hate blogs, hate Facebook pages, and twitter pages. I have been scouring the internet this week to get into the science of what makes a Black Veil Brides hater tick or what fuels there fire. Its simple. Give them what they want. So I decided that reading many, many back logs of posts, tweets, and articles of supposed BVB hater “Bloggers”. What is fascinating to me is there lack of knowledge to back their claims and to start-up rumors about a band they hate so much about. I will give you examples through out the article you are reading(This article was a struggle to produce cause of the fact I want this one to be an epic one). I will say this though. I am proud to be in the BVB army and a apart of something so amazing that “Grinds some gears.” a little. Which makes me giggle cause they are hot and bothered cause BVB has so much success and all they have is computer to type on. Black Veil Brides is one of those bands either they love or hate. I am glad and grateful to have experienced both spectrum’s of being a BVB hater and now a huge BVB fan. But I am truly blessed the order it came in though. Hater before becoming the fan. Becoming the BVB’s fan was one of thee greatest things to ever happen to me. The moment when I let my guard down and let BVB’s music, message, and lyrics pour into my soul, my heart, my life, and let the healing process begin so I can continue living my life in a positive manner and gave me the strength to carry my life on is by far one of thee greatest feelings in the world. I can’t tell you the feeling it feels to let a band into your life especially one you just moments before betrayed with words and disagreed upon. I view this as purgatory karma. Karma at which it made me want to suffer in a beautiful paid back way as in life gave you melons here you get to fall in love with a band you hate(NOW I LOVE THEM WITH ALL THE POTATOES IN THE WORLD) the weird and cool way how good karma works out that way. What a beautiful thing I have been blessed with. BVB’s music has helped me out so much throughout in 2013. This year has been a big year for me. It’s the first year I gave a “Second Chance” to band that I hated upon. It was the greatest feeling in the world to let BVB’s love through their music go through my heart. soul, and veins. Fuck hating. As you will continue to read on throughout my new article you will see why a band like Black Veil Brides needs all the support, love, and backing up they deserve.

Please note this article took me awhile to create in my head. The vortex of the information I researched for this article was just too great for me. I went on to as much hate blogs, Facebook pages, and twitter pages to better understand what comprises the thoughts, actions, and psychological matter behind a Black Veil Brides hater. It is although sad to read what one has to slander against Black Veil Brides and their hateful actions towards a band of positive manner and major success. It still concerns me at the health and well-being of these really active Black Veil Brides haters. I have found that constantly hating and having negative thoughts/attitudes towards something or in life in general can really badly affect ones health stress wise. Although I could careless about these haters it just concerns me. One can have their opinion about Black Veil Brides. Love them or hate them for all I care but haters are you okay. Laughing out loud.

In this article I am going to discuss what I have read and learned from these hater blogs, Facebook pages, and twitter pages. One thing is for certain these people want attention and are desperate for it. They get a rise from posting such a portentous tweets, status, posts, or whatever it is they do to get attention. It’s generally sad that I do what I do to get positive feedback they do it to get negative feedback. I write articles, reviews, and rants to express myself in a positive manner. They do theirs for negative manner and to express themselves in a negative way. What is sad though is psychologically they think they are doing it in a positive manner and doing a greater good for society plus doing a service for the world. When in reality its the exact opposite. It’s generally sad when someone is so hateful they have to get a personality and post slander on the internet. I hope I explained that into context for you.

Can a band give you an irreversible sexually transmitted disease. NO. On some of the Black Veil Brides hate Facebook pages I have read that Black Veil Brides music gives people AIDS(Auto-Immune Deficiency Syndrome) It was truly heartbreaking and really annoying to read something like that posted not on only one hate page but three separate hate pages on Facebook. AIDS is only given to someone who is infected with it. Music is not infected with AIDS. Good grief. Laughing my ass off. Use your noggin and think before you type is what I preach. It’s truly sad to see a beautiful band like Black Veil Brides get such slanderous remarks against them. I do agree there is bad music out their. I won’t name any names because I respect people as human beings. Plus it’s not cool at all to joke about AIDS. AIDS isn’t something someone should joke about. It’s a horrible disease one who gets it. My thoughts and prayers go out to anyone affected with the disease because it’s a death ridden disease I would not want to plague on to even not so on my closest enemies.

Black Veil Brides is NOT gay. All five of them are heterosexual individual meaning they prefer women and only women. Sandra Alva a former Black Veil Brides drummer is an openly gay human being. All of BVB support LGBT equal rights and marriage. I writing this article support all LGBT equal rights and marriage cause I have a few friends who are openly gay, lesbian, transgender, and bi. I am a closet bi myself. I got bullied as a child and throughout my school years with the term “Faggot” cause i wore nothing but black and band t-shirts to school. I have overcome my bullying. But It really pisses me off when I see derogatory terms thrown at BVB. I actually awhile ago on a grocery shopping trip experienced the “Emo Faggot” term to be said to me. I also got the all famous looks for just being myself and just wearing a BVB t-shirt out in public. I was proud wearing that shirt. It makes me feel awesome and grateful to be a part of something so great. I love the message BVB carry’s. But what was said to me in public really opened my eyes of the level of bullying Black Veil Brides gets on a daily influx. Its fucking disheartening to go through such a thing in public. It’s a cry shame that people can’t keep their opinions to themselves without hurting another individual. Bullying is never okay. Period. I hate bullying. I had to go through it all my life. I of course flip them off and walked away cause that is who I am. Made me think for a while about my time of being a former BVB hater and I never wanting to ever go back to being one ever again. BVB is my life now. To get called “Faggot”, “Emo-Fags”, “Emo-Faggots”, and all the amount of derogatory terms in the planet must get tiring on a day-to-day basis. My heart, vibes, and love goes out to the 5 individuals that comprise BVB who receive this amount of hate everyday. I am truly grateful and thankful that the BVB army steps up and tells BVB they are amazing, beautiful, cool, genuine, and bad ass people on a day-to-day basis because they need to be reminded everyday what their music does for us and how much it means to every single BVB army member. It’s truly great how the BVB army outweighs the haters. 🙂

I also have come across some conspiracy theories of these BVB haters. I have never had one of these ever when I was BVB hater. In fact I rarely said my opinion about BVB when I did hate them(NOW I FUCKING LOVE THEM). I just went on with my day as these extreme BVB haters should do. Its preposterous if you ask me. The conspiracy theories are Andy Six sings to auto tune, BVB rip off from other artists, and this one that made me go outside to scream and lol at the same time Andy sings just like that Justin Bieber guy and their music sounds so much like Nickleback. Okay to back up some shit here. BVB DOES NOT USE AUTO TUNE. Andy sings naturally to ROCK AND ROLL music not POP music and uses no programs whatsoever to tune his voice all edgy and out there. BVB writes their own music. I am tired of reading every where they ripped off Avenged Sevenfold and so and so. I tell these haters time and time again. Go purchase Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones deluxe edition and view the DVD of the documentary of the making of Wretched and Divine. Its one hundred percent REAL. One hundred percent not SCRIPTED. One hundred percent ALL THEIR OWN SONGS AND COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL. Go and read their lyric booklets in their you will read a music copyright from each musician of who composed what song and all their entertainment company information from agents, lawyers, etc. Which means they HAVE legitimately written everything ALL themselves with the right copyrights, measures, and legalities. By the way, Andy hates auto-tune he said it in an interview once. I heard him say it. Don’t get me started on the Nickleback and BVB argument. In my opinion BVB is way different musically than Nickleback. BVB has more anthemic stadium or intimate venue songs and pure rock and roll songs that one can have a good time and party too. Nickelback has bar worthy songs in my opinion and is not my personal cup of tea to begin with. Plus in my opinion BVB sounds a hell of a lot better than Nickleback. Have your opinions, I will respect yours. Those were mine, I hope you respect mine as well. Please respect them. Andy does not EVEN come close to singing just like Justin Beaver. Andy has his own signature, unique, angelic, soulful, beautiful, charismatic, and edgy singing voice. The beaver has his. I can listen to Black Veil Brides music all day and never get bored with listening to Andy’s voice, the dual guitars, kick ass drum beats, killer bass, and the guitar solos, bridges, breakdowns, etc. I listen to all their CD’s from WSTW(We Stitch These Wounds), STWOF(Set The World On Fire), and W&D:TSOFW(Wretched and Divine: The Story of the wild ones). I can hear the progression they have made individual that being said with Jinxx, Ashley, Jake, and Andy. CC progression from STWOF to W&D was as he said it best “Take it to the next level” progression. CC stepped in for Sandra Alva when she left the band during the changing period of WSTW to STWOF eras. Sandra went on to another band called Modern Day Escape( A killer band I would urge people to check out). With each member of BVB maturing individually and together musically with each record they produce is phenomenal and ground breaking. I loved hearing with each record their individual and together “Take it to the next level” feats. It’s just insane that people come up with conspiracy theories of a band that writes and records their own style of music for millions of people around the world. There’s Google to back your claims haters. But I guess “Lazy syndrome” gets the best of people enough that stupidity makes these stupid claims above. Stupidity kills.

Black Veil Brides haters do just about anything to get attention on the internet. I have come to that conclusion. They either will Photoshop something very horrid of the band of something horrific or write something so hurtful that it’s just too much. I also have come across biased journalist who have a professional job and get real paid money to write for a living when I am sitting here writing this and get diddly shit cause I do this out of the greater good of devotion and love out of my heart and soul I have for music and a band who I think deserves a “Standing Ovation” instead of getting boos at an award show cause BVB won an award for “Song of the year” which marked BVB the first ever band getting three Golden Gods in a row. Bands like BVB who have similar messages and lyrics deserve “Standing Ovations” instead of hatred on a daily basis. It’s just makes me scratch my head on how parents raise their kids now days. Do parents teach their kids to respect others even if they don’t like that individual whatsoever. People can co-exist with one another if people were not so cruel, deceitful, and malicious towards each other. It’s about time the metal community comes as a whole. We don’t have to go “I love you” to each other all the time. Like when was it okay for someone to hate someone else’s music choices because it was not their cup of tea. It’s not fucking okay. Bullying is not okay period. I don’t give a fuck if someone likes Justin Bieber, One Direction, Selena Gomez, or whoever the fuck it is they listen too. I don’t go up to them and say I hate the bands you listen to go die in a corner. That is wrong. Instead people should just ignore people who have different music tastes than other people do and go on with their day. Its simple. Just like I don’t get this shit at all and I experienced it at the BVB concert I went too. I get that if you are a dad and need to go and be their for your kid who wants to see BVB I get that. Go to the bar and have a good time in their instead of just being their and crossing your arms like a badass and half flipping off BVB. I caught three assholes doing this at the October 3rd Black Veil Brides and Bullet For My Valentine concert I went to at the Knitting Factory in Spokane, WA. I saw these three dudes being all macho and shit. If you don’t like why be their for a band you hate. Go to the bar and have some coffee or water. Go somewhere else besides being there with a hateful appearance. Thank you BVB for ruining these fuckers day cause you guys were doing what you loved doing and that was performing in front of people who truly cares about your music.

BVB haters its simple. Don’t listen to the music or pay attention to it if you don’t fucking like. Best advice I can give to you all. Go live positive lives and don’t be a negative Nancy on the internet. If you are respectful to us we will be respectful to you. Simple as potatoes their.

I am truly proud to be in the BVB army. I know all of us have our faults and shit. We are all not perfect. I am not perfect and never claim to be. It took me 6 days to comprise this article and gather the thoughts into context into a complete article. YOU all are worth it. YOU are amazing to me. YOU all mean so much to me. Every time I get feedback from one of my articles. I have to say this. I go freaking nuts and I cry happy tears cause being at 21 and finally finding my calling in life is blessing. I truly appreciate, love, am grateful, and take all the comments I get in gratitude and stride. YOU all are the world for me. I can’t wait to make this a career some day to kick some ass in the rock and roll journalism field because I am finding that great journalists are lack in this journalism field too as much as there is a lacking for rock and roll music in society. I hope to make it a live someday and make it so that people get excited about reading again the ones who hate reading. Thank YOU. I send nothing but my love and wishes to each and every one of you. I love you all.

Black Veil Brides music does so much for me the list can go on forever. BVB not only inspires me to better myself they also make me believe in myself too. I struggled with that all my life. I never believed that I could do things. But they have opened my eyes and inspired me with much perseverance that if I work my ass of enough my dreams can come true. I can’t wait to lead my own legacy and show people my excellent writing skills. Thank you BVB for being there when I needed someone the most. YOU five lovely individual are amazing, gifted, talented, and beautiful soled human beings. I love you Black Veil Brides so much more than I could scream.

RISE UP AND CELEBRATE YOUR LIFE…. NEVER GIVE IN..NEVER BACK DOWN. NEVER GIVE IN…NEVER BACK DOWN…WHEN YOUR LIFE FEELS LOST(FIGHT AGAINST ALL ODDS!).. NEVER GIVE IN.. NEVER BACK DOWN

Most of those BVB hate pages are inactive to mostly active. I believe the inactive ones come out when something like what happened at the Revolver Golden Gods 13′ happened which I fully back and support BVB on what they did or one of their favorite bands hates the band they hate. It sucks that they have to waste their lives away on a perilous meaningless page instead they could be doing something with their lives. Sad. Their you have it. Mariah’s “Potato Queen’s” TMZ article on everything BVB haters. Now eat some potatoes for me BVB army and have a good one. ❤

Ultimate Rant: Black Veil Brides Style (Putting BVB on a Royal Throne)

As I read through the common posts, tweets, forums, comments, and etc of the daily hate Black Veil Brides gets in the shit tons on every media site out their that features them news wise or interviews them. Plus on their official media sites as well. Its come to my attention that Black Veil Brides isn’t metal enough, their gay, they sound like such and such band, they are ladies(They are grown men, LOL), they are emo faggots, they are bad this and that, etc. The list goes on and on with the shitty non claimable excuses I have read about how “Gay”, “Not Metal” and “Sucky ass” BVB is. 

What are my further thoughts on this situation. I did an informal article on classifying BVB in a metal group. YES. They are TYPE of metal. If you dumbass sheep would put your thinking caps on right and searched Google right then you would realize that BVB is a type of metal. END OF SUBJECT. Plus BVB classifies themselves as rock and roll to begin with. So why put bands in boxes. Just listen to the music and enjoy it. But I had to be frank with people in that post and actually break shit down to tell YOU the hater what genre or sub-genre BVB will be compiled into metal in. Here is a link to my informal classifying BVB as a metal group tumblr post: http://queenofpotatoland.tumblr.com/post/66265297515/black-veil-brides-a-tribute-to-a-band-i-once-hated-now 

I am tired of people calling them faggots, emo faggots, what homo they are, etc. Derogatory insults are not pretty at all. BVB is straight for crying out loud. Even Ashley says in a few interviews that he worships women. Bullying is NOT okay. Bullying should end. Can I ask “The BVB haters” a question. What did BVB do to you? Nothing. Why constantly hate on something. If you don’t like it. Don’t waste your valuable precious life on hating. Its not good for your psyche, mental stature, nor health. 

People keep bringing up what Andy’s now legendary speech at the Golden Gods Awards 13′. I back what BVB did 300 percent. Have your opinion about it but at least have their side of the story before you the hater has a one tracked mind about. I am so fucking glad I voted for “In The End” to be and won “Song of The Year” because for personal reasons and for the fact it was written for Andy’s late grandfather Urban Flanders(May he rest in peace and will never be forgotten). Andy also via his twitter apologized for the matter. Andy also posted a tumblr post about the situation. I bet NONE OF YOU HATERS have read it nor read his tweets stating the apologies. YOU the haters make Andy and the rest of his band out to be a villain’s of the music community(I know you do it to a lot more other bands too not just BVB) when they do the complete fucking opposite in helping thousands of people including myself more than lately with their inspirational key messages through their music and lyrics. So you can give me those “Oh Andy is an asshole, he acts like a dick.” No he isn’t a dick and nor is he an asshole. Lets do a hypothetical haters. Lets play a game. The “You put yourself in their shoes.” game. How would you feel to get massive amounts of hate on a daily basis day in and day out plus constantly getting critics who may or may not like what you have put out their either artwork wise, music, etc. You worked your ass off for hours, days, and years the project you created with your blood, sweat, and tears. You constantly get shit on with trolls, critics, haters, etc YOU the hater would be guarded too about what someone says about you on the internet or face to face interactions. People are entitled to their opinions. We live in America were the first amendment gives that right. But in the next paragraph I will explain where the first amendment doesn’t cover your ass haters in certain situations. 

I have come across a few facebook anti- BVB hate pages. People are entitled do those pages however its come to my attention that even with the first amendment and their right to free speech will get their asses in trouble with the law. Pages telling Andy to kill himself, Andy is a Satanic Pedophile, and on some anti- BVB hate pages their are memes suggesting to kill BVB. With content like that your rights to free speech and to the first amendment are out the fucking door. People don’t realize that doing these such things are illegal as fuck and can be prosecuted in the court of law. Not to mention based on your states or countries anti-bullying or anti-cyber bullying laws what actions and consequences you can face. I took a street law class 3 fucking times in high school. I read my school book thoroughly. So get a life you anti facebook anti- bvb hate page admins. You can hate the band all the fuck your hearts desire it just overly pisses me off that these things AREN’T BEING HANDLED CORRECTLY AND NOT BEING PROPERLY PUNISHED. Have a hate page for all I fucking care. Waste your life on it. I have pity for you. But don’t have your hate page cross the line so much so that it becomes illegal and you have to go to court cause of it. DON’T BE A DUMBASS. 

DO PEOPLE USE GOOGLE ANYMORE TO FACT CHECK. USE IT. IT WAS CREATED 15 YEARS AGO. USE IT. YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE ILLITERATE TO USE IT. MY MOM AND DAD USE IT. THEY DON’T KNOW SHIT ABOUT COMPUTERS THAT MUCH. EVEN MY GRANDMA’S AND GRANDPA’S CAN USE GOOGLE. THE FUCK IS THIS SOCIETY COMING TOO. LAZY BRAIN SYNDROME. IF YOU ARE TOO LAZY TO GO TO GOOGLE HERE I HAVE DONE IT FOR YOU HATER. HERE YOU GO: http://www.google.com&nbsp;

If you don’t like it, don’t listen to it. Don’t go trolling to some fan support page or bands official page and paste your hate about a band their. Just gives me reason to call you a closet fan. The logic in that is fucked up and gives me headaches. Just what the fuck. 

I know the BVB haters will NEVER stop and will never stop in letting us know about their opinions. But I am warning you permanent BVB haters if I see ANY content anywhere on the internet posted about BVB or any of their members that is illegal I will report your ass to the proper people. I WON”T tolerate any messages containing “Kill yourselves emo fags, Lets shoot BVB with a gun, any vile untrue content about the band members, and any negative actions towards the BVB army.” 

Another thing I have come across lately is that people believe BVB’s music is satanic. However, I know that their lyrics make some religious references I want non fans to know that BVB is completely a secular band like I am completely secular amateur journalists. Secular meaning no religious partakes in any religious activities or matters.With this being said. BLACK VEIL BRIDES IS NOT A SATANIC BAND NOR DO THEY WORSHIP SATAN. LOL. BVB is fully a rock and roll band not a Jesus band. If you want a Jesus band listen to Underoath, Kutless, Anberlin, etc. Nothing wrong with Jesus bands its just that I don’t like the “Please Like us If you Love Jesus Bait and Switch motive” behind Jesus bands. I hate that. 

I know we can’t live in a world that can’t accept us “Freaks” and the song “We Don’t Belong Here” is a true testament on how the worlds negative donkey asses have upon the people who want to help and change the world. The people who are different are the ones who get bullied the most in today’s society verses the normal folk. I know bullying awareness month has passed but It should be every month. Bullying is not okay. Stand up for someone that is getting picked on. Help people out. Their is no greater reward in the world than helping someone out without repay. “Paying it forward” is what its all about. I hope and wish bullying can be eradicated someday. I hope one day that some of you BVB haters give BVB a second chance like I did. When I gave BVB that second chance. My whole world changed. The world became more beautiful, my creativity went through the roof, and they gave me comfort in knowing everything is going to be okay. BVB helped me resurrect something that I thought I lost forever which YOU the reader and or hater is reading right now. BVB helped me resurface my love for writing again from the ashes. I can’t tell you the reader the feelings I am feeling for this band. BVB has given me hope, the oxygen to breathe again, the power to have my dreams come true some day that I will make happen( AYE magazines you better be looking for me in the future. 😉 ) So I urge you the hater to go into BVB’s disc catalog with an open mind listen to the lyrics, the guitar/bass bridges, hooks, solos, etc and the killer drum beats plus added on piano and orchestra workings done by Jinxx. (So please tell me their untalented fucks, NO) when they are clearly not. If you want proof they record THEIR own music purchase the deluxe edition of Wretched and Divine and watch the making of documentary plus read in all their lyric books in the back their is the legal music copyrights by ALL THE MEMBERS. So quit saying they are motley cure and kiss ripoffs when clearly those bands inspired and influenced BVB in their music and look(THEY didn’t ripoff their look nor plagiarize their look, If you look in comparison of Motley Crue circa 1985 to BVB circa STWOF(Set the World On Fire) era they have two totally different looks. KISS had and still has to this day the mass theatrics with the famous white and black make up. BVB has black warpaint and black signature face paintings suiting to their personal preferences. BVB took influences from KISS in theatrics and make-up styling s but NEVER stole KISS’s look nor theatrics. It just makes me laugh my ass off when people coin BVB as Kiss and Motley wannabe’s without doing their full GOOGLE research and basing their opinions off firsts impressions. Jeeze.) Plus Jinxx is a classically trained musician ranging from the piano to orchestrated music. Andy went to the school for Creative and Performing Arts. CC and Jake taught themselves how to play music since they were young kids.

So it comes to wrap this rant up. I hope these BVB haters do their research on www dot Google dot com. It enthralls me how stupid, stupider, stupidest the world has come to. So happy I fell in love with BVB’s music and their message. BVB is about follow your dreams, leading a legacy, being who you are, never giving in, never backing down, and always having a rock and roll good time. If you the hater see anything wrong with that then you are really mistaken. I find it cool to have learned so much from a band. BVB got myself out their again. I owe it to them for me to make my dreams come true and to thank them some day in person( Plus mention a little epic apology in the near far future…I can’t) I hope you haters realize that hating is a mere waste of time. You might be pissed off at me for telling you all off. Which I could careless. One way or the other. But seriously do you have shit to do in your lives instead of constantly spending your precious life on hating a band that didn’t do shit to you. Seriously get a hobby like knitting, skateboarding, graphic designing, writing, making music( don’t hear any of you BVB haters making any hits lately), anything what you set your hater mind to. Hating a band for a certain amount of time gets pretty monotonous. 

All I can say is I am so happy that a band like Black Veil Brides exists on earth. Such five beautiful soul men they are. I hope to interview them someday. They are cool guys and down to earth. The put on killer live shows. They have me as a forever fan for life. I am happy and inspired knowing Jake Pitts is a fellow born Idahoan. If he came from Idaho, succeed, and make his dreams come true today. I know I can make my dreams come true too. YOU can make your dreams come true too. 

NEVER GIVE IN….NEVER BACK DOWN….. RISE UP AND CELEBRATE YOUR LIFE…. CAUSE…TAKE JOY IN WHO YOU ARE…CAUSE WE KNOW OUR WINGS ARE FLAWED… BLACK VEIL BRIDES OUR OUR HERO’S BUT DON’T FORGET THEY ARE ONLY HUMAN.. LET THEM LIVE

Black Veil Brides: Hero’s of the Universe( A raw and uncut article from the emotions of the Potato Queen)

Black Veil Brides has been a band for several years now. I only just this past January 27th, 2013 got into them hardcore due to an unhappy situation I was going through. I in January had to get tested for cancer for the first time. My white blood cells where showing signs of inflammation(which is a sign of cancer or red flag warning which thank god it was the red flag warning) somewhere in my body. Which I was put on several more test’s. But during the time I was getting the tests I had made a time to end my life cause I did not want to live anymore with anymore medical issues and any more medical pain. I already I had at the time 2 severe headache conditions which one was rare. I also had other medical issues as well. The headache conditions is what is causing me to be disabled. I was done being a medical guinea pig anymore. The doctors were treating me poorly. Some bullied my indirectly. So on January 27th I was going to end my life cause I was tired of being in pain and tired of all the medical bullshit I was being put through. The cancer scare is what pushed me off the edge. The fatal mistake I made that saved my life was going through Youtube music section. The music at the time I was listening to was not working. Then I saw the new BVB music video for “In The End” I at the time being a former hater tried to avoid it at all cost but this time fate wanted me to push on the link to the music video. The next paragraph will explain the magic.

I clicked the music video and I being the hater said “Why the fuck did I just push the BVB video.” then all of the sudden Andy spoke to me. I call it the instant Black Veil Brides hater removal two by four being smacked in between my eyes. Andy sang “In the end as we fade into the night, who will tell the story of your…..” I listen to the full song through by the end of the song. I was on ever fucking social media of Black Veil Brides and I was liking and following everyone them through twitter, facebook, tumblr, and youtube.. I was just baptized into a new human being. The strength I was given by the band to fight this hellish battle I am going through with my medical issues. Made me believe their is hope and faith in the world.

Just getting over the realization that the band that I just hated a few seconds before just saved my life cause I planned on killing myself that night when everyone was asleep. What a contradiction I kept saying. I have since put my hater ways behind me. Locked the hater tight shut in a coffin and buried her fictitiously six feet under. The hater I was once before has died and will never be resurrected. Death is permanent. So in the beauty of this. I took my last ever suicide attempt and turned into a deep and ever meaningful love for a band I once betrayed. The only thing I killed that night was the BVB hater I was. Which I am truly grateful and thankful to have done to me. Best thing ever to happen to me EVER really. Doesn’t top me winning fourth place at competition at individual state competition in Boise, Idaho. But its up their with me getting my high school diploma(Fuck you doctor haha 😉 ). Nothing really feels amazing than becoming a BVB army member its literally an life changing moment. My life is now better cause of it.

These guy’s get so much hate its not even funny. I ignore all the hate as much as possible but when the trolls are on every social media site possible post after post with their hate towards BVB its gets pretty tiring. I also hate it when the get called faggots. It just boils my blood when the get purposefully called that every time something really great happens to them. Oh well. You all get the magical “Fuck You, Motherfucker.” I respect your opinions haters but don’t cross the line with your’s. That’s why several BVB army member’s come flocking to you cause you cross the line. Post something intelligent instead of insulting all the time.

Through the months I have been a BVB fan. I have become great friends with numerous people of the BVB army. Everyone of the BVB army is very beautiful inside and out. I like to mention their dedication and love towards a five piece band that forever captivates the world. BVB isn’t just any ordinary band. BVB has all the right ingredients to make one great powerhouse anthemic band to to have mass in masses of a massception of the BVB army supporting them.

The love the band gives to their fans is just awesome and heartwarming. I have gone through probably 4-5 boxes of tissues of BVB fan stories already. I feel their emotions through their posts and it’s an everlasting feeling. What BVB does to their fans not only changes their lives forever it also better’s and brightens their lives for their eternity. With each and everyone of Black Veil Bride’s wisdom and advice to their fans is a lifetime of knowledge and inspiration for that one fan.

Now we come to the clincher of the article where you pull out 4-5 boxes tissues. Black Veil Brides has been really prevalent this month. I seen them live for the first time on October 3rd in Spokane, WA at the Knit. That day honestly changed my life forever. I have no words to fit how lovely BVB was live that day. Forever in debt. But anyways,  I have seen so much hate recently towards BVB on my personal accounts that it has been bothersome. The more I ignore it. The more hate flocks to me. This week hasn’t been the best week at all for my medical issues at all. I haven’t felt good for 3-2 months. I haven’t been eating properly in weeks. At times I feel like giving up but who come to the rescue. Black Veil Brides. They were their every step of the way through all the bullshit I was going through. My medical issues are still kicking my ass. It sucks that not even a doctor can help me at this time. I have been braving the storm and I know I can fight this tough ass battle. All I have repeated over and over again in my head was BVB’s famous lyrics that have inspired the BVB nation. “Never give in, Never back down.” Its hard dealing with day to day daily life dredgers but to know that BVB is on my side in spirit helping me fight this really means a lot.

I have no words to say how thankful and honored I am to be in the BVB army. I wish I NEVER was a former hater all. But no one can erase their past. The past is the past its unchangeable. But the present and future are. So glad I made the drastic change in becoming one of you. You in the BVB army. YOU all mean the world to me. I could not thank you all enough for every tweet and gesture said to me. YOU are all amazing. I love you all.

Black Veil Brides me so much to me now. I am going to be a fan forever. I am so excited to be with you all in the BVB army and with BVB during their many adventures and the long BVB rock and roll party journey ahead of us. BVB has all the cards to be one of the greatest bands of our time.

So Thank you BVB for putting out inspirational, aspiring, thoughtful, helpful, healing, and every word that is positively said about BVB. BVB has helped saved thousands of lives including mine through the whole world.

If you’re planning on committing suicide. No that you are not alone. Know that a saviour is always their for you when you’re feeling alone and to Never give in, never back down. The suicide hotline is 1-800-273-8255. For people who self harm here is tumblr link with major numbers and hotlines for your region: http://insteadofcutting.tumblr.com/hotlines

know that these things are temporary solutions to bigger problems that could have bigger consequences to your health and well being and even death. Know that someone out there loves you and care about you. YOU are worth it. YOU are not alone. YOU are amazing.

I am happy to report that I am now in suicide remission. I haven’t had one single suicidal thought since Black Veil Brides came into my life in January. To know its October now and I know I can make it through even the hellish battles without thinking about suicide ever again. Makes one feel great about themselves. Cause of BVB I am now wanting to pursue a degree in creative writing next year so I can expand my writing and express myself in even bigger ways verses blogging. I plan on becoming an interviewer and writing for rock and metal magazines someday. As Andy said in an interview once “Rock Stars aren’t shit out of the sky” well neither are journalists. LOL. I have worked my ass off so forth to get to here. Its quite startling to me already that I have the inner workings of becoming a great writer. This all inspired and aspired through Black Veil Brides but its up to me to make this happen. Cause I need to make my own legacy and show this world what I made off. If you are reading this. YOU have something that makes you great too. Don’t feel down that you don’t have anything to show the world yet. It will come to you in the most beautiful way possible. Keep your head up high. Stay strong. Be positive. Always remember “Never give in, Never back down.”

BLACK VEIL BRIDES ARE THE MUSICAL BATMAN’S OF THIS EARTH. THEY ARE ARE UNSUNG HERO’S. THEY ARE SAVIOURS. THEY MAY CALL THEMSELVES NOBODY’S HERO BUT IN REALITY….THEY ARE HERO’S IN THE LEGION OF THE  BLACK THAT GIVE US THE TOOLS TO LEAD ON ALEGACY….. NEVER GIVE IN,NEVER BACK DOWN.

The Amazing BVB/BFMV show: The time of my life.

Home is where the heart is. Right. Well last night I felt at “Home” for the first time in a long time. In a room full of my peers, people that were like minded like me, people who are as Andy said “Freaks” in the whole room, people with commonalities, people who enjoy similar interest with yourself, and people who enjoy the same things as you do.  The list may go on forever but you as the reader get the story.

I would like to mention the fact that any part of me as a BVB hater is gone. Its now filled with love and admiration of a band I once hated. I agree hating this band was a totally shame for me to do. But on that fateful day back in January 27th the best thing a hater could ever do is converting. That’s what I did. I fell in love with their music for their message and what they stand for as a band in this fucked up world. They give me hope knowing that they truly care about their fans and they are so active with their fan base. What sold me to convert while I did some major research about BVB back in January is the fact that their songs intertwine with the dredgers of everyday life. I cried so hard reading the positive dark lyrics from all their recent and old songs. Everything I have negatively read about them was WRONG. I love the fact that they don’t take shit from anyone. The famous quote from Andy now in vest form “Fuck You Motherfucker” is very imminent.

So here I am talking about converting. Some people do convert. Change is a good and positive thing in peoples lives. BVB has forever changed mine. I know what I want to do for the rest of my life career wise because of them. They have pulled this side of me I never KNEW I had. I never knew I had a knack for words. I knew I had a knack for the lovely art of words but never had I thought to become a journalist. This is like my wildest dream come true. So all the worlds “Thank You” cards in the world can’t tell BVB thank you enough. Thank you BVB for coming into my life and making everything fabulous.

Now its time to talk about the amazing concert. SO many things happened their. Many funny, weird, WTF, Heart-touching moments, and awesome moments. Lets get started shall we.

Yesterday started as any normal day for me. Little did I know my life was going to change that night forever. My mom and I drove from my home from Orofino, Idaho to Spokane, WA which is a 2-3 hour drive on max. It was so worth it. My mom and I had to make pit stops along the way. We left early. Got to Spokane fine. Visited my grandma for an hour that lives in Spokane I don’t see her that much. Left early from her place to get to the venue to get a parking spot and pay for parking which was worth it. My mom and I walked into the wrong part of the building of the Knitting Factory almost saw a film. Talking about hilarious. We got directed to the RIGHT building. Shit happens. Go through the line at the concert okay. My mom was having a bit of a cultural shock cause of all the phenomenally dressed BVB army. I would like to say the effort that they put into their looks was perfect. With my extensive education on BVB I knew what everyone’s face painted were all from what BVB Era whether it be from We Stitch These Wounds Era, Set This World on Fire Era, and Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones Era. Congrats to all those who dressed so amazingly. YOU all did a perfect job.

BVB puts on amazing live performances. Their efforts towards everything they do is such a NEED in all things rock and roll. I agree with Alice Cooper and what he said about rock and roll being anemic. We NEED bands like Black Veil Brides, Bullet For My Valentine, Throw The Fight, and Stars in The Stereo, etc to pump the iron in the veins of rock and roll to make it lively again.

BVB I am so fucking proud of you all. YOU really showed them haters what was up last night. Andy you pile drived them even before they had the chance to even flip you all off. HAHA. Way to get to the bull before grabbing its horns. I love your speech about the haters not listening to your music and not having any generalized evidence to back up their claims of their hate. YOU sir have got my full support and love to back your band. I love BVB. I also love your speech about us fans being ourselves and never let some motherfucker take control us plus live our dreams sort of speak. They fact you told us all that BVB loved us. Made me cry so hard. I felt so at home last night. BVB you made my whole life.

PSSTTT Andy with your speech against the haters you shut up three 1986’s haters in the back where I was. They were crossing the arms as you always tell it. I got to experience it. I was like the fuck. It really happened. They didn’t look happy. They look like grumpy cat. LOL Good for you Andy you shut them up before they even got to you and flipped you off. GO ANDY!

CC did his famous CC drum dance last night. I nearly died of laughter. It was epic. He banged the hell out of his drumset during their entire performance.

Jake and Jinxx played the hell out of their guitar’s. Their musical chemistry is banana potato nuts I will tell you. Plus they sang really well too during the gang vocals.

Andy sang with perfect vocalization. His deep voice compliments his singing abilities. I am really pleased with his and his bands performance abilities. I am just wowed by them. I hope many people become fans of them and many of them infamous haters wake up, smell the coffee, and become fans of them cause they are incredible.

BFMV blew my mind as well. I have been a fan of their for nearly a decade. I started liking BFMV music back in 2005 in my Junior High years. I was referred to them through by Atreyu and Avenged Sevenfold. So seeing them for the first time last night was “Bittersweet Memories” when they played all their hits and their new music ranging from ‘P.O.W’, ‘Tears Don’t Fall” which was the last song the crowd chanted for it and we GOT what we chanted for, “Temper,Temper” to “Your Betrayal” which is fucking awesome live, EVERYTHING was epic live. I died and went to heaven 666 times 😉 In reference to BVB playing a cover of “Fiend Club”by the Misfits. I was shocked when BVB played “Perfect Weapon” off of their first CD We Stitch These Wounds. I cherished that moment. Everything BVB played from “Shadows Die”, “Nobody’s Hero”, “Wretched and Divine”, “Perfect Weapon”, “In The End”, and “Fallen Angels”. Everything they played was perfect and well done.

The openers were fantastic too. Throw the Fight and Stars in Stereo did a fantastic job. Congrats to them for doing such a swell job. The lead singer of Throw The Fight really touched me. I would like to say Stay Strong and congrats to him for kicking cancers ass. I may not have cancer but I do have a life threatening disease and also a rare disease also. Keep kicking ass. Plus his shout out to the troops had me tear up cause the recent revelation of my deceased friend/classmate who served in the Air Force. She unfortunately took her life while serving cause the military life was too much for her to handle. So thank you to the lead singer of Throw the Fight for doing so.

I also talked with fellow BVB army members. It was amazing to do so. I cherished the conversations I had with them. One made a homemade “Rebels” vest for 3 dollars. It was amazingly done that I know BVB would be so proud of her in her vest.

Now its time for the get out the tissues section part of my article. I love these two people with all my heart. They were in the disabled section of the venue at the Knitting Factory. One man in his late forties or early fifties was permanently disabled in his move around electric wheelchair. I talked with him a bit. I probably made his day cause I told him he was amazing and to stay strong. He could talk but I barely could not understand what he was saying but I have worked with these type of people before and so I knew how to properly conversate with them. He was having the time of his life which made my whole life that much sweeter. If that does not take the cake there was a 15 year old girl who had a rare disorder that makes her wheelchair bound. Her and I may not have the same rare disorders but the commonality of her and I having rare disease together made me cry inside. I AM HOME. I screamed that in my head. She was such a lovely girl. My mom and I had a lovely short conversation with her dad and her. She is such a strong girl. I wish her the best in life, stay strong, and that she is not alone. Me and her hugged twice. After meeting her and the sweet man. I already was emotional now I am double emotional. These two people are two amazing walks of life. I commend her father unlike my mom for taking me to the show for also taking her to the concert last night as well and letting her live her life outside the disability like I was that night. To anyone who has disability and listens to like minded music. Keep fighting the fight. Stay strong and positive. Keep your head up High. As BVB aptly puts it “Never give in, Never back down.” Yes, “YOU’re all amazing.”

Now its time to talk about the funny and WTF moments. I seen someone dressed up as a psychedelic manitar and an uncle keeping an eye on his niece and her friends with a wig on drunk as hell. Don’t worry he was not gonna drive them home. They were going to walk home because their home was a walking distance away from the venue. Which relieved me. He told my mom and I that he was their to “Fuck their plans up and torture them.” The WTF moment was when this chick with a see through shirt on did not have a bra on underneath. I am all for class and dressing decent to rock shows. Which all of you girls dressed appropriately except that one older lady. The hell. lol. But Jesus ladies put bras on when you go to shows. Even though the world love’s boobies. Even if you are one of those ladies that like’s to give the band their bras. Which in my eye’s to each their own on this one. I do not do cause of my own views but if another person want’s to do do it out of admiration for the band. So be it. This has been done for years in rock and roll where ladies have thrown their panties or bras up on the stage as an incentive to the band. I watch to many documentaries on Vh1 classic about this sort of thing about rock and roll in 80’s. Haha. So ladies if you are old enough to throw your bra up on the stage please bring a “Gag Bra” that’s the one you throw and keep the one you have on, ON. Please and thank you. Cause I saw little “Black Veil Brides Army Members in training” their. Yes their was kiddies their. Just a little thought to all you older ladies. Keep it classy ladies.

I also want to THANK ALL of the people of their hygienic odors last night. THAT was the first ever concert I went to without smelling BO but I did smell some drive by shootings aka walk by farts. EW. Thank all your parents for raising you all well for having good hygiene values.

I did not get to meet any bands. But I did get to meet Jesse Lee, BVB’s merch dude. He was a kind, sweet, and awesome guy. I gave him my “BVB Former Hater Surrender Slip” to him to give to BVB. Which I fangirled so hard for hours on end. Still am right now. BVB deserved that so much. I love them very much. They get so much hate and to have a “BVB Former Hater Surrender Slip” is quite nerve racking to tell you. I also baptized myself with water after BVB’s set to symbolize that I am no longer a hater but a fan of a beautiful band with such a beautiful message.

I vow to never hate them ever again. I also shamed myself there at the show with the sign. HAHA. I had the guts to do it and I raised the sign and waved it in surrender. Best feeling in my life. It was so great to know that the band that gets so much hate has one of their former haters surrendering at one of their shows. Ain’t that neat. I was the one that did that. I will never forget that show. NEVER. I plan on going to more BVB shows in the future. Plus BFMV in the future as well.

The intro to BVB’s set had feels up the ying yang. I can’t tell you how nerve racking it is. Once the lights went out. I said oh fuck here we go. My stomach was in knots plus not feeling well because of my health conditions but I braved the storm anyway and went to the concert. Instead of drinking soda I drank tons of water. Water is good kids. Keeps yeah hydrated. Plus the bands were drinking their water too. Positive output of all the bands live performances. Plus they drank monster instead of alcohol on stage. I knew they were keeping that for after the show. Bands that do that in front of young crowds like that not only win approval ratings in my eyes but positive feedback from the parents as well. THANK you bands for doing that. That was a cool “Sober” observation I saw.

To wrap up this huge article. I am glad knowing that I have buried the BVB former hater I was forever. BVB deserves me as a fan. I am glad I woke up and smelled the coffee sooner rather than later. As one of my BVB friends told me before I went to the show. BVB makes YOUR dreams come true. That for the fact is true in every form. They have directed me in the right path in my life. So all in all have fun with your lives. Life is too short to HATE all the time. Always try something new. Befriend a new buddy who is lonely. Treat others with love, respect, and dignity. Have some potatoes(They kick heart disease right in the ass). Enjoy your life people have it much worse than you in the world. Have a laugh. Blast your music really loud. Follow your dreams. Be yourself. Last but not least don’t forget to tell someone you love, you love them.

BFMV did a phenomenal job performing live I have no words to say about it. It was that phenomenal. 

But BVB playing live in front on me. Was the cherry on top of the banana sundae. Absolutely amazing live. No words can tell you the reader reading this on your computer or on  your mobile device somewhere in the world how beautiful and powerful BVB is live.

I wish these guys nothing but the best in their lives and musical endeavours. They all mean the world to me and to every fan they have touched and helped throughout the world. Music is the key to everything in life. Everything beautiful and natural in life.

So glad I went. I have memories to last a lifetime. So excited to see what my future brings and what it entails. So happy for everything in my life.

I love you all in the BVB army. YOU all mean the world too me. Thank you for being in it now.

BLACK VEIL BRIDES WILL DOMINATE THIS EARTH….BECAUSE..WE SCREAM…WE SHOUT…BECAUSE WE ARE THE FALLEN ANGELS….. BECAUSE…..IN THE END….. WE ARE LEGION….FOR WE ARE MANY…NEVER GIVE IN..NEVER BACK DOWN

PS Knitting Factory why the fuck does your venue with your vents  certain area’s smell like Subway sandwiches. YOU made me extremely hungry for subway. Shame on you for not having Subway for all of us.

The anticipation of the magical Black Veil Brides concert: The feelings one concertgoer goes through

Here I am again writing about the lovely Black Veil Brides. I regret nothing at all. *Insert Andy Not Giving A Fuck Meme here* I love these guys for the rest of my life. I am about to see these guys in 5 days with my mom as a her Birthday present from me. Her birthday is on October 2nd. The concert lands on October 3rd at the Knitting Factory in Spokane, WA.

What do I have to say about this. Almost every positive word in the world. This show means the world to me. I am not only to give my mom the best birthday present a daughter could to a mom. I am also surrendering as an ex-BVB hater and closing that chapter of myself behind me. Even though I have moved on and gone to better things. It is time for me to go to the source and tell them for my wrongdoings. Plus tell them that I love them with all my heart for coming into my life during a difficult time. BVB is truly one phenomenal band not because of the fact that they write and play amazing songs. Its for the fact that they have helped thousands of peoples lives including myself. Its truly inspiring and amazing. Glad to be apart of the BVB army and family.

I appreciate everyone that has taken me in with open arms already in the BVB army. I mean I was a hater of this band that helped all of you and you all choose to love me and care about me. I am so thankful and more than appreciative of it. You all could have shunned me out and hated on me. But you all did not. But instead you all gave me love and support. My gratitude is everlasting cause of all your actions over the course of the months I have been fresh in the BVB army. I wish I could give you all more than just thank yous. I love you BVB army with all with all my heart.

The feelings I am getting now for the impending Black Veil Brides show is astounding. I have been waiting for more than three months for this show. The fact that I am seeing them live in 5 days is just brain racking to me. I can’t believe I am going to see them live. Its just……

I anticipate on having a good time and nothing but a good time. I hardly ever get to go to concert’s that very much due to the fact that I live on a strict income, my medical issues, and travel issues. But when the perfect time does strike that I do get to go do these things. I take the opportunities and go forth on them. I cherish every waking moment of any concert I go to. If i meet any musician at a concert its like having mashed potatoes and gravy with fries. Its very awesome.

Concerts feel like a second “Home” to me. I feel at home their among people that I have a lot of commonalities with and share like interests. I love the fact that bands bring together people. Sometimes bands help people find their soul-mates in some cases. Its beyond fascinating at the world of music and what it does for people. It brings people closer and brings joy and healing to Earths human beings.

Music is very powerful in that sense that I would like to say Black Veil Brides music hits it at every “Take It To The Next Level” height in music. I love the fact that Black Veil Brides music can spin off discussions in a lot of positivity and the dreaded negativity posts, comments, tweets, etc from the BVB haters which I was at one point in my life. I do apologize to BVB for being one though(As I said before I have moved on and started a beautiful journey being a lovely BVB fan for life.). BVB and any other musician don’t deserve hate for no reason at all. I have one question for all of you haters. What did Andy, CC, Jinxx, Jake, and “Former” do to you? Its very fascinating to me that BVB does charity work and goes out of their way to make their fans or other people happy. It truly makes me happy knowing that. So all this name calling and such is just insane to me. I never when I was the “BVB hater” keeped all the hateful rude comments to myself. I have learned my lessons. That is never say something bad about something you haven’t given a chance to unless you already have given it a chance. Mark my words it will help you the reader in the long run. 😉

Fuck hating. I hate all the hate BVB gets. Period. They DON’T deserve none of it at all.

BVB means the world to me. I don’t know what my life would be without them now. Its amazing to know that people like them are out their. I love them with all of my heart. I love everyone in the BVB army as well.

To Andy, CC, Jake, Jinxx, and “Former”. I hope you four lovely men know that you all are doing the right things in life. Never stop doing what you all are doing. Keep doing a phenomenal job. I hope more of me does convert and apologize to BVB for their wrongdoings. I hope one day we all can live in a bully free environment. BVB has four lovely individuals that brings hope and faith to a broken world where a lot of people struggle with everyday life. I am so happy you five all are in this lovely band together. Keep kicking ass.

Black Veil Brides is not just a band….In reality its the Saviour that keeps us going throughout the day and night when we have Lost It All cause…In The End…They are Nobody’s Hero… We are our own Hero’s….For that…. We Scream..We Shout…Cause.,,,We Are The Fallen Angels…cause we ……Never Give In, Never Back Down

Black Veil Brides: We Scream. We Shout. We Are The Fallen Angels.

Good morning or night BVB army the following is meant for you:

Take Joy in who you are…. We know are wings are flawed…. are the words imprinted in “Fallen Angles” a song in one of its own by Black Veil Brides.  With those powerhouse lyrics. Fans around the world have connected with Black Veil Brides deeply. In my freelance article I will go on to further explain how fans show Black Veil Brides their love through music covers, artwork, and writings. 

Black Veil Brides has helped thousands of fans that I have previously mentioned in my article and review piece. They have helped those thousands of fans through meet and greets, music, online support when they can, and being their in spiritual. I have had the opportunity and honor to talk to a hundred of these amazing souled people through social media who have been inspired and changed forever by Black Veil Brides themselves and through their powerhouse music.

Black Veil Brides has helped save many lives as well as mine( January 27th). They have helped people with major depression, cutting and or self harm, suicide attempts, and other daily major life struggles people may face. Andy Biersack’s main mission for Black Veil Brides was to make a sense of community/family for “The Outcasts” the people who are going though the listed above issues/more and the daily dredge’s of daily life. To help guide them to follow their dreams and that we ARE worth it “At the end of the day.” no matter what. Each member of BVB has each individual inspirational quotes for their fans. It is rare to have a full band have a mass of inspiration and wanting their fans to succeed as well. It warms my heart everyday knowing that I have a sense of a “Home” in the BVB army cause of the love and support each individual band member gives. In my eyes, I have found my second family. 

I have noticed with in the BVB army/family the passed 6 plus months I have been in the fanbase is that we love and support each other in a time of need. I have gotten so much support and love within the passed 6 plus months when my sickness has gotten me down or I just feel down. This fanbase is the dream team of fanbases. Even though we have our faults at times. We really pull through and outshine when it comes to supporting BVB related events and voting for awards. 

I have seen numerous Youtube videos of kids doing phenomenal vocal, guitar, bass, and drum covers of Black Veil Brides songs. All of you are truly insanely talented. If you are one of those people who has done a cover and is reading this. Remember not to give up and keep going. Even if someone tells you what your doing is wrong. This even goes to you all who do paintings and drawings of BVB and writings/literature inspired by BVB. “Never Give In, Never Back Down.” YOU all are talented. Each and everyone of you. I was told all my life that I was never going amount to anything but I am going to prove people wrong by following my wildest dream of becoming a rock and roll journalist/interviewer. I plan on going back to school next year. So my fingers are crossed on that. 

What has Black Veil Brides done deeply to connect with their fans? Just about anything you can imagine. The stories fans have told via the internet about their meetings with BVB touches my heart. How extremely nice BVB is to their fans is one for the books. I would say this like winning the lottery in winning a great band that understands us all and an army that backs and loves each other in the time of need. 

Black Veil Brides will always and forever be one of those great bands of our generation that will carry on a “Legacy” of showing compassion, gratitude, hard work, determination, and any other amazing word you can call these four distinguished young men: Andy, Jinxx, Jake, CC, and “Former”.  I hope Andy’s dream of Black Veil Brides “Becoming the worlds biggest band” happens. 

In my eyes, Black Veil Brides will always have a special place in my heart. They mean the world to me. I don’t know what I would do without them. They deserve everything in the world. They deserve recognition and standing ovations at award shows not “Hate”. I don’t get why they receive so much hate. I just don’t. They deserve so much love and respect for all they do for people around the world. I feel sorry for people who hate them. They are missing out on something special. That is for sure. 

I hope one day Black Veil Brides does rule the world and puts the magical “Fuck You, Motherfucker.” in a positive fashion for all their lovely BVB army. I love the fact that this band accepts us for who we all are. Whether it be sexual orientation, weirdness, the way we dress, the way we look, and etc. I love it how we in the BVB army do the same for all the members of BVB and their crew. 

Black Veil Brides has not only saved my life from me almost committing suicide on January 27th. They have also helped me realized my life career and my person. If it weren’t for them. I don’t know where the heck I would be right now. Be lost. Really lost. 

I love it when I watch Youtube live videos of Black Veil Brides shows and how they all connect with their fans on stage. Its an experience that I will get to experience on October 3rd in Spokane, WA. My first ever BVB show. I am so internally/externally excited about it that I can throw a billion gagilion VICTORY POTATOES parties. 

In all and all, Black Veil Brides is one of those rare bands on this earth that everyone should cherish and love instead of hating upon. They care so much about their fans that is shows through their music. They even wrote “Saviour” for all of us on their sophomore album “Set The World On Fire” if that doesn’t show love and dedication for their fans then I declare the person who doesn’t see it as “Blind”. Their music saves lives everyday like people eat their potatoes. I only hope that they get bigger and show the world who’s boss. I only wish them the best in their lives, health, and well being. 

Black Veil Brides is one of those bands people love to hate. I understand people hating them. By all means hate on them. That is YOUR prerogative. I respect other peoples opinions as people should do mine. But I would like to mention a few things. NEVER allow your opinion BVB hater reading this to A) Cross the line and B)Make death threats against the band and or tell them to kill themselves. You will be reported by me and other caring BVB members. I know we don’t give a fuck. But really threatening death against another person for no reason at all is VERY fucked up. Oh while I am at this. QUIT CALLING THEM EMO-FAGS AND FAGGOTS. I view it as very asinine. YOU are throwing the LBGT community under the bus. Bullying is unacceptable period. So if you want to “Hate” hate in an acceptable manner. I will respect you. Please and thank you. 

Have a good one BVB army. I hope you are well where ever you hail from. I am doing well in Idaho aka Potatoland. YOU all mean the world to me. I only wish you all the best. Many Potato vibes. Have a many potatoes on me. THIS piece was made for ALL of you and the magnificent Black Veil Brides. 

NEVER GIVE IN…..NEVER BACK DOWN……NEVER GIVE IN WHEN THE FIRE RISES………BVB ARMY ALL FOR ONE AND ONE FOR ALL. BLACK VEIL BRIDES ARE OUR SAVIOURS……FOREVER AND ALWAYS….RISE UP AND CELEBRATE YOUR LIFE

Freelance rock and roll journalism piece written by: Mariah Hanna 

“These Are MY words if you steal my words. NO Potatoes for you.” 

 

Black Veil Brides: The Sound of a Nation!!!!

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 four 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. 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 4 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 4 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 “Former” are 4 amazing people. It just pisses me off that people take them the wrong way based on first impressions. I hate that these 4 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 four 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……………….

Black Veil Brides article written by: Mariah Hanna(PotatoBVBQueen is my twitter handle) Date July 3rd, 2013

-These are my words. If you steal my hard work and my words. NO POTATOES FOR YOU.

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.

Legion Of The Black: A Fan Film Review

We are the Revelation….. We are one.. I would like to open this review on a positive note as many positive notes will be made throughout this review. For weeks I planned on reviewing “Legion Of The Black” directed by: Patrick Fogarty. When I got the DVD I was going to watch it with no interruptions at all. I just got done watching it a few minutes ago. BY FAR thee most amazing sight my eyes have ever seen in a long time .

I would like to say congratulations to Andy, Christian, Jinxx, Jake, and “Former”. Plus to Alicia Vigil, Patrick Fogarty, William Control, Juliet Simms and many other people who made such a beautiful rock and roll musical film happen.

First I would like to comment on how well done the sound effects and background sound effects were well done. Plus Black Veil Brides on one hell of performance throughout the entire film. The sounds were at theater room quality in my tiny little earbuds. I HAVE NEVER had that experience before watching a DVD on my laptop. Everything was well done and well thought out. Sound was carefully planned out and casted thoroughly.

Second, the lighting and other effects throughout the film was just like a fourth of July firework finale every gosh dang second. My ADD was off the wall trying to keep up and stay focused throughout the film. It was just beautiful.

The short story Andy wrote for Wretched and Divine: Story of the Wild Ones that was portrayed in Legion of the Black was beyond phenomenal. Andy is one pure, intellectually genius that thinks outside of the box when it comes to writing music. I HAVE NEVER in my 21 years of being an avid music lover come across someone lyrically that powerful and then turn around write a short story for rock and roll musical film like this. Just amazing if you ask me. My mind is blown. YOU go Andy. I also want to pin point the musical counterparts that were written so well by Jinxx, Jake, “Former”, CC, and Andy. The musical counterparts were written so well. This concept album/film was thoroughly well musically thought out. The riffs, breakdowns, solos, bridges, choruses, and Jinxx’s classical music orchestrated music made for one insane album. I love how Jake and Jinxx feed off of each other riff wise. Their chemistry is sonically one huge shit kicker with Christian’s “CC Smash” or “Take it to the next level” killer drums beats. YOU GO ANDY, CC, JINXX, AND JAKE.

Third I would to say the cast throughout the film was just outstanding. I didn’t watch this and expect a crappy film. BVB they make turds turn into golden nuggets. Alicia Vigil’s aka Eve Black’s inner strength and courage throughout the film was inspiring. How her parents took her from being a manic for loving something so much that she lives and breathes that bands music everyday and they put her in mental institution for not accepting for who she is. But in today’s society this does really happen. I am very fortunate to have parents who grew up liking the same sort of musical tastes I do. But some kids out their aren’t fortunate and have strict parents who condemn their children for rebelling against their families beliefs and traditions. I have only seen this for many years on the internet kids take to music as their psychologist cause they can’t talk to their parents cause they are the reason to their problems. People aren’t perfect. But its up to the person on what path they choose in life. As said in LOTB “You can live your life in heaven or create your hell.” You either live your life in positive manner or negative manner its up too you as the reader of the review.

Fourth is my own take on this miraculous musical film. No words can ever describe how amazing this music film is. Black Veil Brides has done NO ever band has done before. Made a film out of their CD. I will continue to support these five multi-talented men. They have gone and did something out of the box. I love the film so much the film will never get old with me.

Fifth, Juliet Simms and Willam Controls guests appearances were very phenomenal and well done. I was very shocked at their performance and their charisma throughout Legion Of The Black. Their vibe to the film was phenomenal.

Sixth, The portrayal of F.E.A.R and the Rebels their epic journey and battle for a united kingdom had me speechless throughout the musical film. It was amazing out cry from both sides to see the struggle enfold and end in a epic uprising battle.

All in All, Black Veil Brides will become the biggest band in the world someday and this musical film proves it all. I just don’t get why these five amazing men get the hate they do. Its just absurd. Of all the thousands of fans they have helped through the years this band is surely doing everything right in the books. I am so happy to have become a fan of Black Veil Brides. They mean the world to me as they mean the world to each and everyone of you BVB army members.

With the releasing of The Ultimate Edition of Wretched and Divine:Story of The Wild Ones yesterday and many other Black Veil Brides events happening throughout the week. This week and every week is dedicated to Black Veil Brides. Everyone have an awesome International BVB on June 17th. I plan on doing something epic on that day. Stay tuned.

BLACK VEIL BRIDES WILL DOMINATE THIS EARTH. WE ARE THE REVELATION, WE ARE ONE….NEVER GIVE IN WHEN THE FIRE RISES….LONG LIVE THE BLACK VEIL BRIDES.

These are my thoughts on the Legion of the Black a film on Wretched and Divine: The Story of the wild ones a concept done by rock and roll band from Hollywood, CA Black Veil Brides. This is must see film for any fan of theirs, musical film enthusiasts, non opened minded BVB fans, and people in all walks of life in general.
