Aural Vampire

Anime 2011 – special “Musical Guests of Honour” performance

 

The main musical attraction for Anime 2011 will be the Japanese Electronic/Techno/Dance band: Aural Vampire (オーラルヴァンパイア). Started in 2000 they so impressed world wide audiences during their tours and so many music magazines featured them in their articles that by 2008 Avex Trax, one of Japan’s largest labels, offered to sign them on.

We would have been honoured to welcome the long toothed EXO-CHIKA and masked RAVEMAN for their great mix of electro-synth pop and trance like music any year, but as this festival has been taken over by the children of the night we asked them to stay as the Guests of Honour for the whole festival.

So be on your guard during the festival, as you might never know when a real Vampire or a masked man in leather might show up behind you. Aural Vampire will be doing a lot more than just their amazing (free) show on Saturday night.

 

Aural Vampire is as excited as we are to perform at Anime 2011 this year!

Please check out their video greeting!



May 2010 saw the release of their full length album “Zoltank”, their first on the Avex label. The music video of the track “Shonan Zoku (Cannibal Coast)” can be seen below:
