The two acts Vampillia and VMO (Violent Magic Orchestra) will tour Europe coming August. The two acts have been performing in Europe a couple of times before, the last time Vampillia toured Europe was in September and October as support of the band Ancest. Earlier in 2018 Vampillia and VMO performed at the Dutch festival Roadburn.
For the three shows in France, on the 14th, 15th and 18th, Neige from the French post-metal band Alcest will join as a guest vocalist for Vampillia.
Vampillia started in 2009 and get described 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, doom and pop explores, makes it overall interesting. Vampillia are a live act, now consisting of 11 members, that knows to captivate from the beginning to the end.
The group VMO offers overwhelming electronically-induced black metal with an interesting live show with stroboscopes, disturbing visuals and live dancers. VMO 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.
During Spirit in Black Festival and MOTOCULTOR Festival, only Vampillia will take the stage to perform.
