Theatres des Vampires-Candyland

Scarlet Records

Theatres des Vampires is a four-piece band that hails from Rome, Italy and takes it's name from a fictional location created by well-known Gothic fantasy writer, Anne Rice. Active since1994, Theatres des Vampires was formed by one-time VII Arcano member, Alessandro "Lord Vampyr" Nunziati, and began life as a black metal. Now on their 10th full-length album, "Candyland", this female-fronted group has apparently experimented with a variety of sounds and styles before settling on the dramatic one we have here. Dubbed   "vampiric metal" by some, Theatres des Vampires offers up a interesting combination of goth hard rock/heavy metal and keyboard-driven symphonic metal on their latest album, "Candyland", and it's a atmospheric sound that most certainly has it's moments. Currently comprised of vocalist Sonya Scarlet, guitarist Giorgio Ferrante, bassist Giorgio Ferrante, and drummer Gabriel Valerio, Theatres des Vampires should continue to build upon it's fan-base provided they put as much thought and energy into each new release as they did with "Candyland". Just released on October 14th, "Candyland" was my first introduction to this long-time Italian goth metal band. I only wish I would have discovered them sooner!
