    Sounds worse than farting into a can. I can say this, because after I listened to one of their songs I made a wager with a friend that I could fart a better melody into a can than this band can write. The can gave my fart a rather nice natural reverb and delay effect, which boosted the low end of the sound, it also provided my fart with natural compression and made it very pleasurable to the ears.

    Second album is polished, though its anthemic pop-metalcore suffers from thinking its better than it is. [Aug. 2011, p. 119]

    When Black Veil Brides have made an album as fist pumpingly anthemic and as downright fun as Set The World On fire is, you'd be incredibly foolish to bet against them doing just that. [18 Jun 2011, p.50]

    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.
