Black Veil Brides album “Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones” was released in January 2013. By far, in my opinion, this album is the best one the band has released so far in their career. The album has a total of 19 songs all considered to be “Goth Rock.” I have listened to every song and these are the descriptions:
“Exordium” length 0:25
This short recording basically says that one is with God. Inside and out. God is within nature and everything. The production quality has a suspense like as though one is entering into the spirit world out of peace.
“I Am Bulletproof” length 3:34
This song had a metal core sound to it. It basically explains that you can go through and conquer anything you want because you are strong at the heart and soul and nothing can defeat you.
“New Year’s Day” length 3:25
A basic melody that tells of one becoming anew on a new year. Counting down to knowing your true inner self from the insecurities of your current being. Unlike the second track, it has a Post-Metal beat to it which gives off a peaceful sensation to most Gothic or emo kids.
“F.E.A.R. Transmission 1: Stay Close” length 0:35
The violins and transmitter audio tells of a battle for humanity and only the truth will lead you to survival. This gives away a sense of security to all of the followers of the F.E.A.R. organization.
“Wretched and Divine” length 3:37
Living in a chaotic world where anything will bow down to destruction. Lets you know that you are a hero and can bring an end to this global chaos of sinister and darkness.
“We Don’t Belong” length 3:36
A song that only explains one being sent to hell and wants to make way to heaven. Feeling that you don’t belong in the gates of heaven so you feel into the pits of hell.
“F.E.A.R. Transmission 2: Trust” length 0:20
Explains to the audience that the enemy claims that it’s new world is upon us. In order to prevent their rise, one must trust in the truth.
“Devil’s Choir” length 2:57
Searching for the right explanation but the only thing you can do is accept your failure and move on.
“Resurrect the Sun” length 4:34
Tells of one being in the darkness and wishes to get out. Their only way through is by the light and the sun.
This is the first half of the album that tells of hope.
“Overture” (Instrumental) length 1:38
A beautiful violin melody that soothes one into having faith during the battle of both ends, the truth and the lie.
“Shadows Die” length 5:25
Lets one know that the shadows is the safest place you can be from shattering into your weakest point and giving into the enemies lies of corruption and destruction.
“Abeyance” length 0:14
Says that its being is in desperate need for a god to rule over them.
“Days Are Numbered” length 3:40
One would rather count down the days to victory instead of being someones fool.
“Done For You” length 2:33
Has more of a relaxing tone to it, a more acoustic style and relaxed vocals. This tells the listener that everything is at its ends and will all be over very soon.
“Nobody’s Hero” length 3:35
You are your own protector and can solve most of your problems on your own. No one really can’t depend on you because you’re too into freeing and saving yourself.
“Lost It All” length 5:20
The title explains it all. You had everything you wanted and need for you to succeed and survive but you lost it all for being too into yourself.
“F.E.A.R. Transmission 3: As War Fades” length 0:58
You are almost at defeat but refuse to give up. So you vow to not let anything keep you from reaching where you’re going.
“In The End” length 3:48
My favorite song out of every track! It tells that one will do anything in the end as long as they get to where they’re going and doesn’t care if they die in the end doing so.
“F.E.A.R. Final Transmission” length 0:54
At the end of the day, the path you took led to failure. It all lead to darkness and a new world order that humanity will suffer in.
The reason why i chose this album is because it speaks to me the most about myself and i can relate to almost the whole album and its meanings.
