Theatres des vampires it @ Female Metal Event
Gothic Metal

Theatres des Vampires was formed in 1994. The band's members expressed a fascination with vampires and anything connected to them, earning themselves and their music the title "vampiric metal" from their contemporaries. The band created a coherent image of vampirism in their stage performance and within the lyrical themes and atmospheres of their music.

During their career, the band was first primarily influenced by symphonic black metal, but later tended to include differing influences, including: classical music, opera, darkwave, deathrock,
gothic rock and several industrial subgenres.

Throughout this stylistic deviation, a few characteristics of the band's music have remained consistent; melancholic atmospheres and lyrics, vocal stylings akin to gothic metal, and their vampiric image.

The band has produced ten albums in ten years. That last album Candyland was released in 2016. Over the years they gained more recognition within the metal scene in Europe, South America and Russia, partially because of the band's participation in various festivals around the world. Although it will be their first show in the Netherlands.
