After the news about an appearance during Le Guess Who? 2017 an announcement of a European tour by Vampillia and VMO was not a surprise. After touring in Europe last December, both bands will be touring in Europe in November.
Vampillia started in 2009, and describe theirselfs as Brutal Orchestra. The combination of classical instruments, heavy guitars and drums, together with opera singing and death metal grunts, where the band the genres drone, noise, droom and pop explores, makes it overall interesting. Vampillia is a live act, now consisting of 11 members, that knows to captivate from the beginning to the end.
VMO is the abbreviation for Violent Magic Orchestra that offers overwhelming electronically-induced black metal with an interesting live show with stroboscopes, disturbing visuals and live dancers. The group started in collaboration with Pete Swanson (ex-Yellow Swans) and French composer Paul Régumbeau, aka Mondkopf, and a few of the band members of Vampillia.
