Theatres des Vampires were born in 1994 from the ashes of Sepolcrum, a cult underground band of the first '90's. They were among the first bands with a sound that would be called Vampiric Metal by many later on. Their horror and gothic attitude was associated to an almost maniacal search of everything connected to the vampirism. They had a coherent image, themes and atmospheres and a real cult was born among their fans immediately, a sort of religion, that made them follow the band everywhere and create many fans club all over the world. In the years their sound, that first was strongly influenced by gothic symphonic Black Metal, then has evolved more and more in something that rarely has been played by other metal bands. It mixes different influences of gothic, electro music, classical music, opera and rock. In few years Theatres des Vampires have created a personal style, uneasily listable, characterized by melancholic and crepuscular songs, but always powerful and catching, where the duet of countess Sonia Scarlet sensual vocals and the male vocals, melt them together in a sepulchral wedding. The band has produced 6 album in 10 years, always with the big English label Plastic Head, and has became more famous each year in Europe, Sud America and Russia. The many concerts in big festivals all over the world witness this success. We can remember: Vampyria III in London in 1999, Gods of Metal in Italy in 2000, Gothic Treffen in Lipsia in 2003, Gotham in London in 2004. In 2003 they played with Christian Death in a long European tour, and recorded an album with Valor of Christian Death and Gian Pyras of Cradle of Filth as special guests. Their shows are always very attended and have been enriched in the years with fireworks, more and more sulphurous atmospheres and the presence "out of line" of Scarlet. The band has often problems with the local laws of the countries where it plays. In 2003 in Italy a bishop blessed and tried to exorcize the place where Theatres des Vampires played, and the new was published by Italian newspapers. Since 2004 Sonia Scarlet has remained the only voice and the front girl of the band. Now she has not a secondary vocal role anymore and can show her talent. The shows of Theatres des Vampires have benefited from this and the fans are enthusiastic. Scarlet feels so involved during the concerts that often she makes scares on herself with razor blades to allow fans to drink by her, to share her immortality. In 2005 several English clubs forbade her to do this, because it violates the English laws against the incitement to suicide. But Theatres des Vampires aren't frightened and go on with their live shows: theatrical, full of blood, sex, perversion, horror and lust. Now, having a new deal with Aural Music Theatres des Vampires'll publish the 28 November 2005 the new album "Pleasure and Pain"; music critics already consider it as the best album of their career at the first listening for studio reports. The famous special guest that are present witness this. We're talking about Bruno Kramm from Das Ich, Flegias from Necrodeath, Dhiloz from Ancient, and members from Ensoph and Stormlord. Distributors all over the Europe have bought the album and it is published with permission all over the world, in Sud America, USA, Russia, Japan. Pleasure and Pain is going to be the beginning of a new era in the story of the band.
