Punkreas – Tyson Rock

Monday, January 26th, 2009

Punkreas is one of the most famous punk band in Italy. They were founded in Parabiago, Milan, in 1989 and in 2008 they published their last record. The best qualities of the band are solidity and constancy, since during the 15 years of activity, with a lot of tours, the starting lineup changed only once, and Punkreas produced a record about every 2 years. Nowadays the lineup is composed of Cippa (voice), Flaco (electric guitar), Paletta (electric bass), Noise (electric guitar) and Gagno (drums), who substituted Mastino since the record Falso. Musically, the sound of the band is raw and strong, with a technique which has constantly grown better with the time and with a good creativity, especially in the lyrics. Mostly in the last years the combination with ska has become stronger and the sound in general has become more complex.

The name “Eiffel” was chosen randomly by a computer program and the “65” was scribbled onto their name on a demo by mistake; it was actually part of a phone number.

Theatres des Vampires is an Italian extreme gothic metal band with strong black metal influences, mostly noted for the predominant theme of vampirism within their lyrics. The name Theatres des Vampires was inspired by a fictional location created by Gothic fantasy writer Anne Rice of the same name. Rice’s Theatres des Vampires is a Parisian theatre in which vampires pretend to be mortal actors, their performances consisting of the feeding on mortals disguised as part of a play and staged in front of human audiences. The location is mentioned in several of Rice’s books, including Interview With the Vampire and The Vampire Lestat.
