Album Review

For Black Veil Brides' first outing with Universal Republic, they tone back the emo-punk dramatics, and let their ‘80s hair metal freak flag fly. As their look suggests, Mötley Crüe and Kiss are big influences, as is Metallica, and elements of these three bands are evident throughout Set the World on Fire. Vocalist Andy Six (now going by his surname Andy Biersack) still has an emo way of singing, but has replaced his squawky screamo choruses with a gruff, James Hetfield growl that he interjects throughout. The slick production of Josh Abraham (30 Seconds to Mars and Linkin Park) marks a big change from We Stitch These Wounds, with no screaming to be heard until the three-quarter mark in the power ballad “Savior” (which starts as a tender love song, complete with string arrangements, before bursting into screeches.) That’s practically the only sign of metalcore, though, and the rest of the album is instead indebted to speed metal and modern rock. Guitarists Jake Pitts and Jinxx are the showstealers here, riffing in constant harmony, and incorporating the speedy guitar pyrotechnics of similar-minded bands like Dragonforce and Escape the Fate while throwing in showy Zack Wilde pinch harmonics, and Yngwie Malmsteen sweeps. Double kick-drum verses along with "hey!" shouts and “whoa oh oh” battle cry hooks, are semi-fun throwbacks to the days when Anthrax and Skid Row reigned supreme and songs like “Fallen Angels,” "Rebel Love Song," and “Love Isn’t Always Fair” have potential crossover appeal to Active Rock fans, even if Black Veil Brides are far from breaking new ground with their studded cod pieces and geisha makeup.

Customer Reviews

meh.

honestly, there a good band. but theyve morphed into an 80s rock band now, and thats why i perfer we stitch these wounds waaay more. although the drum work on here is pretty impressive, the metalcore riffs on wstw were better, same with andys vocals. he has such a great voice, his just not using it to the best of his ability here. its still good though

ANDYSIXXISAMAZING.

This is a really good album. Bvb have really grown up since WSTW, and some may argue that it is for the worse, i definitely think that it is for the best. The best tracks are 'Ritual', 'Youth and whisky', 'Saviour', and 'Rebel Love Song.' I definitely recommend it to any bvb fan, new or old. :)

Great Album!!

BVB have come out of their shell ever since WSTW was published. Andy's voice has grown much stronger in this album and you can truly see the quality he and his band has put into it. A Highly recommended Album, great songs, fantastic music!! 5 stars!! Most popular songs: New Religion, Rebel Love Song, Savior, Die for You, Set The World On Fire and Youth and Whisky. ^_^ < LUV u guys! BVB FOREVA!!!
