Vampyre Music v/s Vampyres In Music
Vampyres, just like anyone else, love music. As far as we can tell, there have always been bands or performers who employ the Vampyre/vampire and even the image of the popular fiction as a metaphor for just about anything from Awakening to funerals, from death to reincarnation, and from blood lust to chaos, mayhem and destruction. Some are more successful than others, a few even employ actual melody, deep emotive lyrics, and can occasionally be accused of having talent.
While many bands have referred to the image of the fictional vampire over the years, some do it for the image, to draw fans or to generate enough controversy to fuel their rise to popularity. Others do it – well, because they really are Vampyres.
Telling the two apart can be fairly complicated, as you will see on the next pages.
There are also numerous online radio (webcast/streaming audio) stations run by members of the VC or which cover items of interest to the VC.
