A gothic metal band that came from Italy. There earlier albums had quite a bit of black metalness in them, which completely died out on their Nightbreed of Macabira. After that album male vocalist Lord Vampyre was kicked out, and their back-up vocalist Scarlett became their lead vocalist. A lot of their songs sing about evil and/or Satan.
They were the first band to be given the called vampiric metal (which isnot a genre).
I love the song Tenebra Dentro off by Suicide Vampire, by Theatres des Vampires.
