Editorial Reviews

2013 release, the third album from the Alt-Rock band. Boasting a compelling concept, the record sees the Los Angeles quintet deliver a collection of songs that's as immersive as it is infectious. Hallmarks of their sound like gritty riffs, orchestra! flourishes, elegant soloing, and anthemic vocals remain intact. At the same time, everything expands gracefully into the fabric of an intricate post-apocalyptic drama about The Wild Ones penned by Biersack and artistic collaborator Richard Villa Ill. The songs weave together to tell the tale of a dystopian future where a unified church government is devouring society through taking away science and creativity. This despotic regime drugs the youth into becoming drones, but refugees named The Wild Ones - the band's fictional alter ego - inspires kids to be themselves and revolt.

i had some small doubts that they would top their last album but black veil brides have proved me wrong.
wretched & divine is without a doubt the album this band was created to make,
from start to finish wretched & divine has a style that only BVB could pull off with such aplomb.
especially shocking was the fact that the single in the end which is a song i love isn't the best song on the album,
which just goes to show how well BVB have managed to create this masterpiece that stands as a testament to their talent
listen out especially for jinxx's skill with the violin used beautifully in track 10 OVERTURE.

to all BLACK VEIL BRIDES fans who haven't yet bought this album get it bought now you will not be disappointed,
to all non-fans buy it any way it's a work of pure genius that can never be repeated.

just for some clarification the deluxe edition which i bought does not contain the movie as some fans seem to believe
it contains a dvd with behind the scenes footage of the making of the album.
unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a release date for the movie yet at least not to my knowledge.
hopefully it will be soon though.

Excellent technical performance, with a science-fiction theme reminiscent of Heinlein's "If This Goes On -" a 1940 short novel included in the 1953 compilation "Revolt in 2100". The album became less reminiscent of the novel in the second half, but the mood is still there for me.

The more symphonically-styled numbers reminded me in a positive way of late King Crimson, early ELO, and recent Stratovarius all at the same time. I've rated only 4 stars because parts became repetitive. My ideal remix of this project would have fewer repeated lyrics and be 5-10 minutes shorter overall.

The sticker on the front identified "In The End" as the featured track. Personally I thought "In The End" wasn't distinctive enough. I think "Shadows Die" and "New Year's Day" are the standout tracks from this album.

Every decade of rock has its monumental concept epics...the 60's had Sgt. Pepper from the Beatles,the 70's Alice Cooper's Welcome to my Nightmare,the 80's were laced with classics from Iron Maiden like "Seventh Son",tales from King Diamond,"Operation Mindcrime" from Queensryche,the 90's had the trilogy of Mr Marilyn Manson's ode to the devious and early 2000's had "the Black Parade" from My Chemical Romance....and now people u may enter "Wretched and Devine". Everything u love about this charismatic quintet with its melodies and anthemic rebellious ways are here and so much more. A battle for self worth and pride flows from each track bleeding angelic beauty with sinister flare...all the while taking us on a spiritual journey of self awareness and personal uprising. Jake Pitts and Jinnx use their duel guitar playing like swords in duel of strength and percission while Ashley Purdy and Christian Coma nail down the bass n rhythm section like a solid tank moving over all in its path..and Andy's lyrics and vocals hit you straight in the pit of ur soul and mesh with your heart and mind evoking emotions u may not have known u had. The guys blend their background vocals and makes that bvb sound u know and love come out in each and every track...In 3 dayz I see this band live and can only imagine if their albums move me what will I experience live...buy this album people. The wild ones have risen for sure and are waiting to have their voices heard.

The slightly new sound from violins&pianos create a chilling atmosphere which is balanced by the rock music&Andy's charming voice. The songs transition beautifully and the lyrics are just breath-taking. Definitely the best album I ever heard.

The only flaw in an otherwise flawless album, the song "Lost it All" features Andy's gf (Juliet Simms). Due to Juliet's very raw style of singing, I feel that song lacked the beauty&balance, and (imo) Juliet ruined the song.

Black Veil Brides certainly have not been wasting any time making an impression or they name known. The band helped bring back the idea of theatrical bands with a visual image and they've been working at a fast pace releasing albums and touring in a quick succession. BVB are receiving a lot of love and hate but they've been making their name known regardless and moving up the ladder. After debut We Stitch These Wounds (2010) and follow up Set The World On Fire (2011) the Brides have returned with this time a concept album. I think a concept album is certainly a bold step for the young ambitious band, instead of delivering another 12 rock songs they went in a different direction and added elements of storytelling and orchestration that make for a grandiose project. Today's bands aren't exactly doing concept albums that much anymore and to the younger audiences a concept album may seem like a farfetched idea and you run the risk of alienating your fan base. I for one, am happy about the band not playing it safe and it makes me respect them that much more. Suffice to say, it isn't exactly a straightforward Rock effort like the first two but I think it gives the band a larger musical scope and it adds dimension to the music proving concept records can actually work (Pink Floyd's The Wall, Queensryche's Operation Mindcrime, The Who's Tommy and the list goes on...). I applaud them both for daring to attempt this and for the collect of songs they have given us in Wretched and the Devine: The Story of the Wild Ones.

The album starts with the introduction of ''Exordium'' but truly begins with ''Bulletproof'' a fast, hard driven song with a hearty and fierce chorus that sounds like a blend of the band's last album, very effective.
