Black Veil Brides Barrowland, Glasgow, March 27; reviews live.

Byline: Jules Boyle

BLACK Veil Brides' fusion of glam metal, thrash and metalcore had the young crowd screaming their approval before they even hit the stage.

Opener, New Religion, was a thrilling blast of massive riffs and double kickdrums, but was let down by singer Andrew Biersack's malfunctioning microphone, which he soon smashed on the stage.

A quick one-two of Youth And Whiskey, and a cover of Billy Idol's Rebel Yell, maintained the momentum before All Your Hate saw guitarist Jake Pitts cut loose with the first of many impressive shredding solos.

The addition of raucous gang vocals gave tracks like Children Surrender and The Legacy an anthemic edge, while their debut song, Knives And Pens, got the biggest cheer of the night.

Drummer CC Coma got his moment in the spotlight with a lengthy drum solo, but a blast of Daft Punk's Da Funk kept things interesting.

The only real weak spot was Biersack's voice, which lacked the weight and intensity to match up with his powerhouse band. But with the crowd hanging on his every word, it didn't seem to matter.
