As Angels Bleed is a Gothic metal band based in Sidney, Australia. They are Avelina De Moral (vocals), Von Lehmann (guitar), Jack Savage (bass), and Frank Macri (drums). Their sound is “heavily influenced by vampire themes and imagery.” They say check ’em out “if you’re a fan of Type O Negative, Within Temptation, Nightwish and Lacuna Coil.” I say check ’em out if you’re a fan of the German Gothic/symphonic metal band Krypteria and Evanescence. But, Avelina De Moray is also an artist. She creates vampire art (using, mostly, photography and digital drawing), as well as Gothic clothing and merchandise. As Angels Bleed‘s self-titled debut album (2013) provides a perfect soundtrack for viewing De Moray‘s darkly beautiful art. “Desire”, “I Drown”, “Bloody Kisses”, “A Love Worth Dying For”, and, the epic final track “Beautifully Decayed” are my favorites.
