In 1988 the band Sepolcrum was founded. They changed name after the third demo to VII Arcano. After Gather My Blood Forever was released in 1994, the band split, with Alexander Nunziati and Robert Cufaro forming Theatres des Vampires, and the rest of the band remaining VII Arcano, but changing their style to thrash metal.
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, which contributed heavily to the gaining of their fanbase.
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 with the English label Plastic Head, and has gained more recognition within the metal scene in Europe, South America and Russia, partially due to the band’s participation in various festivals around the world. These include Vampyria III in London in 1999, Gods of Metal in Italy in 2000, Wave-Gotik-Treffen in Leipzig in 2003 and in 2006, Gotham in London in 2004, and Female Voices Festival in Wieze, Belgium in 2006.
In 2003 the band toured with Christian Death throughout Europe, and recorded an album with Valor of Christian Death and Gian Pyres of Cradle of Filth as special guests.
His style is very similar to the style of his former band, a Symphonic black metal with strong Gothic metal influences and lyrics with deals with vampirism and similar thematics. The other members of the band are: Lady Eter (vocals), Seth 666 (guitar), Aerioch (bass), Endymion (keyboards), Aeternus (drums).
