    Vampiric Metal?

    Oh wow, thank you so much! These guys are great! I am stunned that I had not come across them before. Actually, I think It did years back, but the track I heard was not anything like the one you posted. I will definitely be looking deep into their discography, and the others you mentioned (of course, I love Type O as well. RIP Pete).

    Vampiric Metal?

    Yeah, I have considered that. Its not like I have been on a non-stop quest since 2004, though. Whenever my metal-bone itches and I start looking around, I just think that there just HAS to be some band who saw "Queen of the Damned" and said 'I like that sound. Let's give it a try.' Here is an example of what I am talking about, probably more nu-metal (written by Jonathan Davis) than anything else, but gothic in theme: And here is another one, with a great "in universe" music video from the fictional group "The Vampire Lestat."

    Vampiric Metal?

    Hm, well Sopor Aeternus sounds interesting, and I thank you for the suggestion, but I don't think it is anywhere near what I am looking for, other than their apparent horror vibe. I am looking more for a band with clear male vocals, heavy instrumentation, and a strong overall theme of vampirism, horror, etc.

    Vampiric Metal?

    Greetings, I am looking for something specific, but first, a confession: I love the soundtrack to "Queen of the Damned" (yeah, I know, I am a terrible person). Since first hearing it over a decade ago, I have been searching for something similar not only in sound, but in theme as well. Of course, many popular bands were involved in the soundtrack: Disturbed, Korn, Marilyn Manson, etc. However, the tracks themselves are not exactly representative of the music of their performers, but are meant to represent the music of the fictional band "The Vampire Lestat." This band is characterized by heavy, moderately paced instrumentation, a male lead vocalist with clear but masculine vocals (some growling, etc. but very minimal), and a very strong theme of vampirism, horror, darkness, etc. When I have looked around for "vampire metal" or just "vampire music" in general, I find quite a bit of Emo, some Power Metal, Doom Metal, and, of course, Gothic Metal, but the vocals all seem to be either shrieking or operatic female vocals (Theatres des Vampires) or heavily growling male vocals (Cradle of Filth). Some bands have specific tracks that fit the style (Type O Negative, "Black No. 1"), but I can't seem to find a band that is more focused on the themes. Does such a band exist, one with clear male vocals, heavy instrumentation, and a clear overall theme of vampirism, horror, etc.? I am not a goth or a fanboy of any contemporary vampire show, I just like the concept and am rather surprised that with all of the recent vampire media, more bands have not embraced the theme. Songs like "Forsaken," "Slept so Long," and "Cold," from the soundtrack seem like they would have inspired bands to try more like them. Thank you
