Hollywood, Calif. natives, [lastfm]Black Veil Brides[/lastfm] made their grand entrance to the Monster Stage with a thundering drumroll that ignited an uproar of fanatic screams.

Their army of followers dressed in black with smears of dark makeup running down their faces broke into ferocious yelps as BVB screamed, “We have one job to do today and that is to bring back real f**king rock ‘n’ roll!”

First glances of the five-piece metal/hardcore/emo/screamo — label them what you want, they don’t give a f**k — might have you wondering if they’re the new poster children for Hot Topic with goth-inspired gear and makeup.

But once you get past their looks, all you’re left with is rapid fire drumming, intense guitar solos and heavy breakdowns. It’s no wonder this relatively new band is a growing favorite in the metal scene.

They’re unapologetic in their fashion expression and remind their young fans that real rock ‘n’ roll is about doing whatever you feel like. Demonstrating their mantra, BVB tore apart the stage in a wild ending, smashing their guitars for a big “F-U” to all the haters out there.

The mayhem continued even after the band exited the stage as roadies distributed the jagged pieces of the smashed guitar into the screaming hands of BVB’s most hardcore fans as a trophy of real rock ‘n’ roll.

    LOVE these guys! I’m a mom and we had a blast at their show! Their stage personas are excellent and the warpaint and outfits ARE individual expressions of what they feel. IF people would bother to read their interviews they give props to Kiss and Motley Crue for influencing them. I love the fact that they aren’t out there kissing corporate ass and that they treAt their fans like family! I will always be a member of the BVB army ❤
