Italian bloodsuckers THEATRES DES VAMPIRES will release their new album, "Moonlight Waltz", on January 14, 2011 via Aural Music. The CD was recorded at Temple of Noise studios in Rome, Italy with producer Christian Ice and will feature guest appearances by Snowy Shaw (DIMMU BORGIR, KING DIAMOND, MERCYFUL FATE, THERION, NOTRE DAME), Cadaveria (CADAVERIA, DYNABYTE) and Eva Breznikar (LAIBACH). The first pressing of the album will be made available in a deluxe limited slipcase edition, including a special bonus DVD with exclusive video material, behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the album, interviews and more.
In a recent interview, THEATRES DES VAMPIRES keyboardist Fabian stated about the band's new material, "This album has the best production of our entire career, and we are delighted by the quality of orchestration parts, thanks to the help of maestro Luca Bellanova and the amazing performance of the Classical Music Academy of Rome.
"Of course, there are some typical THEATRES DES VAMPIRES songs — but with something new, as usual.
"As we always say, with each album we want to make something new, something fresh, and I think these songs go along these lines."
