MACABRE MUSIC: AURAL VAMPIRE BRINGS JAPANESE GOTH TO NORTH AMERICA

Okay, Aural Vampire isn’t really a Goth band — they’re more like a Japanese La Roux — but the duo of Raveman and Exo-Chika evoke horror imagery in their stage shows and videos. They’re currently on tour in the U.S. with our faves, Toronto’s The Birthday Massacre, and the Black Veil Brides. This video for “Freeeeze!!,” off their album Zoltank, is filled with crazy-looking Japanese Goth kids with oh-so-serious faces, even though the music is airy synth pop. Love Exo-Chika’s fangs, though.
