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
