Between October 2012 and October 2013 RVL conducted a series of four “social surveys” of members of the Vampire culture. We employed an entire, a wide, range of questions aimed at gathering general and anonymous information about the ways of the folks who inhabited the culture, or more specifically, the online culture since that was the arena we carried out the survey in.
We received a number of queries along the lines of, “Ummm what does that have to do with modern vampires?”..
The answer was a lot simpler than one might have thought,
“You are a modern vampire, yes?”
“You do (question content/subject) don’t you?”
” If you are a modern Vampire and you do this thing it is a relevant question to ask modern vampires, no?”
“Oh, well, yes. I see your point.”
The point is that being a modern Vampire doesn’t mean you have to do, say, feel or act in any specific way. The point is that being a Modern Vampyre is just like being a modern human being.
One of the questions that demonstrated this in a big way was a question that asked, “Who’s your favourite music band or artist?”, in fact you wouldn’t believe the number of people who came and asked, “Oh, do you mean Vampire band?”, to which we replied, quite gently, “Not necessarily unless your favourite band happens to be a Vampire rock band”. Well, once we had that cleared up, here they came, everything from Mozart and Beethoven to Cradle of Filth and everything in between and all around of that. At the end of the project we concluded, and rightly so, that Vampire music is music that Vampires listen to. Easy.
So, to throw a little light-hearted in here’s some Vampire music, that is music that Vampires listen to, well… one vampire anyway…
