I: DEVIL TO THE MAINSTREAM
It’s music, V For Violence aims to keep as effective as possible. All unnecessary artistic ‘ego-fucks’, epic middle parts, orchestras and ‘instrumental-whatevers’ are not found in V’s songs. V For Violence has tendencies to balance between furious aggression and melancholic interpretation.
Though, the music is basically metal, it has more in it. Influenced by many styles of music i.e. different subgenres of metal and rock as well as pop and punk, V For Violence represents quite an interesting consept, that is potential for, not only metalheads, but also for bigger audience. For this kind of music, the band gave a term: GOTHCORE
V For Violences lyrics are something you usually don’t read when listening to a modern rock or metal songs. Like the music, also stories are about breaking both face and heart. Influenced by many great writers, the lyrics give an extra depth for a reader’s mind to dwell into.
In short, V FOR VIOLENCE brought the DEVIL a little bit closer to mainstream music.
