Venom Vampires is an EBM-Noir / Darkbeat band, hailing from South Texas, that started as a studio project in 2001 by a Dj, Tohm Thicken.
During the early years of his DJ career, Tohm was captivated by the western European 80s and 90s classic EBM, New Beat, and Dark-Wave sounds, which led him to create his own interpretations by buying a workstation and writing his own tracks, which he would test at his gigs at local clubs with positive results.
Long-time friend Russel Dove, who had worked on songs with Tohm off and on, officially joined the band in 2009, followed by another local DJ, Adrian Ortega, six months later to start doing live shows.
The three first appeared as a complete band at the "Texas Industrial Fest" in Austin, Tx in 2010 and began doing shows locally and in Austin, Tx for the next 2 years opening for acts like Ludovico Technique and Bella Morte.
Since 2011, the band has appeared on various label compilations and officially released their first album "Super Science & Sorcery" on Body Music Records.
