** Sorry, but that song isn't actually about any of those things. It really is meant to be a love song, albeit a macabre one. In Andrew's own words:
-->'''Andrew''': ""The Horror of Our Love" is not about violence or gore. Violence does not involve consent, but actually necessitates that the destruction be unwanted, while gore is a gratuitous and unceremonious exploitation of the body's component parts, particularly the insides. The only reason I consider the song to be "The HORROR of Our Love" is because death (or compromising the structural integrity of someone's body) is considered horrifying to most people. Here though, that "horror" is welcome. [. . .] This song is about profoundly loving (or lusting after) someone so overflowingly that it devastates you. Where your physical person cannot possibly contain your emotion, but that emotion still begs for physical expression. And even still, no affection or act or word can satisfy it. Climbing a mountain, crossing an ocean, building a palace - they don't do justice to the lengths to which you would go to be with that person. Kissing, touching, making love, jigsawing your parts together - none of it comes close to closing that horribly gaping divide that separates any one person from any other. [. . .] Salvador Dali once said of his true love: "I love Gala so much, if she dies, I will eat her." I understand feeling that intensely for someone. That inspired me to write this song. I - like you and everyone else - am alone. And it's all I can do to try and reach a little further through the veil." [[https://www.facebook.com/notes/ludo/the-horror-of-our-love/441100366181/]]

*CompleteMonster: King Silias from ''Broken Bride'' is the King of what remains of civilization AfterTheEnd. Not satisfied with his power, he makes a DealWithTheDevil to destroy the rest of the world in exchange for magic. He uses this dark magic to burn and boil the dead into zombies with the sole purpose of [[OmnicidalManiac wiping out the rest of the world]]. When a little boy suggests fighting back against the horde, he uses this magic to MindRape the mayor into a DespairEventHorizon and [[DrivenToSuicide kill himself]] in front of said boy. Silias is amused by this and all his other crimes, never showing remorse, and using his dying breaths to still try to destroy the world.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: How some [[FanDumb fans]] are reacting to Andrew's side project, Hot Problems, because he's writing pop songs rather than a second rock opera.

* FetishFuel: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ve-ked_p9fQ This video]] in general is... interesting... but Tim Ferrel, with his [[{{Adorkable}} glasses]] and his hair? Mmmm~
** A lot of Andrew's appeal come from the precarious balance he strikes between this, [[{{Nightmare Fetishist}} Nightmare Fuel]] and [[{{Adorkable}} Adorkability]]. That and RefugeInAudacity.

** [[{{Squick}} OH]] [[FridgeHorror MY]] [[NightmareFuel GOD]]. Why would anybody think that it was romantic in the first place? Did they even ''LISTEN'' to the lyrics?
** While I think we can all agree that 'Horror' isn't exactly the most romantic song and certainly not one you should be playing in front of close friends and family, the actual meaning of the song isn't quite so macabre. Andrew Volpe stated on a Youtube video of the song (found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d25xlurNV0s) that it was actually, in essence, about feeling love so strongly for someone that you wish to be connected with them at all times, mentally, physically, spiritually, etc. So yeah, the lyrics are still creepy and the fangirls are still delusional, but the real intent behind the song is kind of beautiful.

* EpilepticTrees: "The Horror of Our Love" was [[EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory subject to]] [[MisaimedFandom a lot of this]], mostly relating to certain supernatural romances filling up the bookshelves, until it got out of hand and [[WordOfGod Andrew told everyone that it was just a song about]] [[StockMonsterSymbolism obsessive love]], and to please stop arguing about Literature/{{Twilight}} in the comment section.



** Lake Pontchartrain when you realise the FridgeHorror aspect. Hell, even without that - vengeful, murderous, crawfish ghosts who comandere radio signals and forces of nature to trick you into driving to your watery doom? Scary as shit.
** ''Save Our City'' may qualify at the zombie verse, as may ''The lamb and the Dragon'' when it describes the dying earth.

* FridgeHorror: "Lake Pontchartrain". When you realize that the song [[UnreliableNarrator may not really be]] describing a supernatural experience but [[spoiler: a young man being interviewed about the disappearance and possible murder of his friends,]] it suddenly becomes a lot scarier.

*** Missouri still has the Death penalty. Should the narrator be convicted for the murder of his friends, he would be executed. Now, if his story was true, there even more FridgeHorror because that would mean NO ONE would have survived that encounter, and the Lake would be free to kill even more.
**** Lake Pontchartrain is actually in Louisiana, not Missouri where the band grew up. Though Louisiana does have the death penalty too, so that's still true.

** One tour video shows them on a day off, building and igloo. Once they're finished, long after the sun's set, they get their instruments and play a song in it.
