They have already completed a European tour this year, last February, but it has been revealed that Violent Magic Orchestra (VMO) will return for a second European tour in 2023 next October. This time the tour has been named Death Rave Eve, DEATH RAVE being the title of their new album. Before the tour in February, the group did not get the chance to tour Europe for more than three years, so it seems they are making up for these lost years.
The group manages to merge overwhelming electronica-induced black metal and noise with an interesting live show featuring strobes, disturbing visuals and live dancers. Violent Magic Orchestra started in collaboration with ex-Yellow Swans Pete Swanson and French composer Paul Régumbeau, aka Mondkopf, as well as some band members of Vampillia, a ‘Brutal Orchestra’ that has toured Europe before.
Today, it is a collaboration between Vampilia and visual artist Kezzardrix and has collaborated with musicians like Chip King (THE BODY) and Attila Csihar (SUNN O)))), MAYHEM) for their first album Catastrophic Anonymous. The group has already completed several European tours and performed at festivals such as Roadburn Festival, Brutal Assault, Incubate Festival, and Le Guess Who?, to name a few.
