Biography

There are 3 bands sharing this same name.

1. Lestat, goth band from Cleveland.

Lestat, the band from Cleveland Ohio, had created music for 11 years. The group released two cassettes and one CD. They have also been featured on many compilations such as Jevan Records “One”, and Cleopatra’s “Goth Box”, a 4 CD compilation. Lestat began in the summer of 1989. Jess, Razz and Susan formed a band with Richard and Pete. The name, Lestat, taken from Anne Rice’s famous vampire novels, was chosen as a common thread between the three founding members. The original idea behind the music was one of release or purging of emotions for the members. The music reaches into the darkest corners of the human psyche. This was achieved on Lestat’s first cassette named “Theatre of the Vampires”, in 1990. With the success of Lestat’s first release, the band decided to seriously focus on refining the music. Richard and Pete left the band to pursue other interests and Timothy left his current band to join Lestat. He brought with him his expertise in drumming and programming. Thus began the true partnership between members. Lestat’s second release, “Grave Desires”, released in 1991, takes the original focus of the music and fine tunes it even further. The mood is darker, the edge is sharper and the emotion is terrifying. This second release took the name of Lestat further into the darkest corners of one’s mind. The band continued to focus on the music.
