Biography

Vladimirs formed in 1995 as a side project by members of Bad Samaritans (Brian Day), Thorns of the Carrion (Marquis Thomas), Estuary (Ash Thomas), The Blame (Doug Nevels). The four decided to get together to do some music that was more loose with a ‘campy-horror-movie’ and ‘classic 50’s sci-fi’ feel lyrically. The first s/t CD ‘Vladimirs’ was released in January of 1995 and is regarded by many as the ‘2nd Wave’ of horror punk. With elements of punk, metal, goth, and rock the Vladimirs drew a large and diverse audience. Interest in the band from fans was so great that they knew this was bigger than just a side project. They took to the road and the name grew. The first CD is still out of print, highly sought after, and in some circles considered a classic. The Vladimirs went on to record 6 full length CDs and many appearances on compilations, tributes, 7”s, LP’s, movie soundtracks, and one-off rarities. The release of the newest ‘Serpent Girl & Songs To Shed The Skin’ CD on Blood And Guts Records marks the Vlads return to their roots. With catchy sing-along choruses and lyrics dark, sometimes humorous, and sometimes disturbing ‘Serpent Girl’ will prove itself to be a classic. Many bands exist in this genre but the Vladimirs are more diverse in their musical styles (drawing from many influences, not just punk) and they don’t just write a song describing a horror movie that they have seen. They invade the mind of the listener or invite the listener to invade the mind of the band to experience the true horror that lies beneath the surface.
