Black Veil Brides - Not So Glam

Ok, I don't get it. Why are people calling Black Veil Brides Glam? They're not Glam. They're emo. Which is fine - I've got nothing against them or emo bands really - I just don't get all the Glam press. Just because the band's singer Andy Six happens to be obsessed with Kiss and Motley Crue doesn't mean much - in sound anyway. In image...well, that's something else. In reality, I think Black Veil Brides is basically screamo with some Bullet for My Valentine/Avenged Sevenfold influence.

Black Veil Brides will release their debut We Stitch These Wounds on July 20. The band is on a Hot Topic sponsored tour now. If you think this band is Glam, then tell me why. Obviously I'm missing something but I listened to "Knives and Pens" about six times in a row just to be fair. I'm sorry but I just don't hear the Glam. But yeah, the band has dyed black hair.

I loved this song when I found it on youtube. I saw the GLAM potential. They can lose the scream shit and just sing. Andy Sixx is a rock star. I hope they can solidify a lineup and bring back glam (get it). Keep the girl drummer, she rocks.
