An American rock band based in Hollywood, California. Famous for their Music/{{KISS}}-like face paint, and having both a strong fan base and strong hatedom, the latter mainly from the metal fan base. They started out as a {{metalcore}}-styled band with a penchant for face paint and glam styled theatrics before making these themes overt by switching to a pure {{hair metal}} sound, becoming possibly the modern purveyor of the 80's sound.

----
!! This group provides examples of:
* AlbumTitleDrop: In all three of their albums: "We Stitch These Wounds"; "Set the World on Fire" and "Wretched and Divine"
* BeYourself: The main message of a majority of their songs.
* CarefulWithThatAxe
* ConceptAlbum: ''Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones''
* CoverVersion: Of Billy Idol's "Rebel Yell" and KISS's "Unholy".
* DeadpanSnarker: Andy in most interviews.
* {{Face of the Band}}: Andy Biersack; There are people who don't even like Black Veil Brides, who appreciate Andy due to the fact that he knows his music, worships punk revival bands like Social Distortion and Alkaline Trio, and has a more snarky, self aware persona in interviews than would be suggested on record.
* FallenAngel: They have a song about this, appropriately called [[CaptainObvious "Fallen]] [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Angels"]]
* FunWithAcronyms: '''F'''or '''E'''very and '''A'''ll '''R'''eligion, the primary villains of ''Wretched and Divine''.
* {{Hair Metal}}: Basically they play music from 1986 in the 2010's. although they do darken the lyrical content and image in comparison to the colorful party atmosphere of the genres heyday. Not to mention they're a little bit heavier than just about all other hair bands (which isn't saying much, though, since hair metal is arguably the least "metal"-sounding sub-genre of metal next to the lighter side of alt-metal).
* LongHairedPrettyBoy: Again, all of them.
* {{Metalcore}}: Began as this, although it only lasted for one album.
* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: 6, with some of their instrumental passages reaching 7.
** "Faithless" is probably their heaviest song to date; it would have reached 8 if it weren't for the clean parts.
* OneWomanSong: "Carolyn"
* ScaryMusicianHarmlessMusic: Either played straight or subverted, depending on how you see them.
* StageNames
* [[WalkingShirtlessScene Walking Shirtless Band]]: Most pictures of them usually have some form of bare chest, especially [[{{Bishonen}} Andy.]]
* XMeetsY: Music/MotleyCrue and Music/{{Poison}} meet '90s Music/{{Metallica}} and Music/BulletForMyValentine.
* YouAreNotAlone: Part of the lyrics in "Carolyn".
** The theme of "Saviour" as well.
