US hard rock that's safe, aimed at the youngsters and deals with social themes
'Vale' is the fifth full-length from American hard rock act Black Veil Brides. Love them or hate them, the band is busy, charts well and has a large fan following. Overall, the albums are mostly straight as a preacher, surgically clean without much variance or style differences. It's safe, aimed at the youngsters and deals with themes like social acceptance. The highlight for me has always been the melodies while tolerating the cookie cutter chorus pieces. "My Vow" is the most metallic of the bunch, hinging an aggressive Bullet for my Valentine-styled riff attack.
