The comedy and music legends in the podcasting world that are The Pod Effect have featured REBEL VAMPIRES in their latest video: a hilarious goth Vampire Special.
Pod Effect are mates from way back with the lead singer and bass guitarist Tim Black from the band Off the Realm.
Off the Realm wrote Forevermore – the stunningly good rock anthem – inspired by my vampire Light. The dark poetry of the lyrics, combine with hardcore bass guitar and serious hook… When I say I can’t get this out of my head when I type, ‘condemned to remember…’ Yeah, still there.
A new special edition Euromix has been released by Dark A.C.E. Records of Rebel Vampires‘ Theme Song.
This is a goth rock and London punk explosion by band Off the Realm: Forevermore.
Described by listeners as: ‘gothic sound with an urban, mechanical edge and dark, emotional lyrics that grab you and don’t let go. It’s beautiful in a goose bumps way. This is my new favorite band. Highly recommend. It’s rare to fall in love with a band the first time you hear their music.’ 5*
The video contains all the dark and glory of the novels: Light’s journey through World War One, 1960s London and the side the tourists never see. It’s beautiful and frightening all at once: a love song for London, yet holds the pain of a humanity lost and fought for.
In lightning flashes – or the light shows of the First World War (or the headlights of Light’s motorcycle) – the lyrics blind you. Each one speaks to the heart of Light: ‘Your redemption, your slave/ I submit to you/But never these laws of man…’
Plus there’s one shot of me…except starring in red as Ruby – Light’s Author and the ‘gemstone’ of the song.
As a music fanatic, it was going to take one blinding band and one awesome song to get my blessing. Somewhere between Linkin Park, Kings of Leon and Nothing But Thieves..? Yeah, Offthe Realm is my new favourite band too.
