Vampire Release Video For Title Track Of New Album ‘Rex’

Interview: Black String of Vampire

Vampire Release Video For Title Track Of New Album 'Rex'.

Deep in a musty, age-old cellar of old town Gothenburg, VAMPIRE have been plotting something wicked…again! In 2020, frontman Hand of Doom, guitarists Black String and Sepulchral Condor, bassist Command, and drummer Abysmal Condor proudly present their third studio album, “Rex”, which proves to be a tremendous sonic and compositional highlight in their career thus far. Today the title track “Rex” is released.

Black String states about the new single:

"In my opinion the song sums up the sound we've been digging further into the last five years or so."

The video is directed by Daniel Garptoft and can be viewed here:

Hand of Doom states about the video:

"The video stresses the dark nature romanticism that has been part of Vampire ever since the first album. A major difference to the music videos Daniel Garptoft has made for Vampire previously is that there are no humans visible on screen. The closest you'll get are biblical etchings, decapitated statues and a ghastly entity oozing up from the tombs. Together with the heroic and celebratory quality of the music it offers a new dimension to the Vampire experience, full of contrasts."

Having risen from the proverbial grave in 2011, VAMPIRE released their self-titled demo a year later. Immediately hailed by tastemakers—such as Darkthrone’s Fenriz—and fans, who raided 300 copies of the demo in a week, VAMPIRE’s vicious yet evocative style set fire to convention. Signed by Century Media a year later, the Gothenburgers quickly set out to work on their debut. Released in the abyssal spring of 2014, VAMPIRE’s self-titled debut was received with much praise whereas the group’s artistic endeavors already became less to-the-face and more atmospheric on the following “Cimmerian Shade” EP and even more so on the second album, “With Primeval Force”. The latter overall turned out to provide a little less traditional songwriting in vampiric terms and was colder, less immediate than the debut. 2020’s “Rex” now ups the ante notably unfurling a highly addictive whirlwind of the harsh and the heavy, the aggressive and the atmospheric, the melodic and the maniacal. With “Rex”, VAMPIRE have successfully crafted a majestic, macabre force of its own!
