Bio

It's not likely you'll encounter very many hard rock bands with a 19th century Southern plantation aesthetic and two cellists. These guys- a trio with two chicks and a dude behind the drums, who have released their fourth album on their second label- somehow sound like a distorted version of the Rocky Horror Picture Show cast performing the works of Electric Light Orchestra. Or a slacker tank girl singing punk-metal covers of show tunes. Although that's not really fair; the ensemble sounds more like early '90s American alternative hard rock bands, and, further still, claims to have been founded in 1891, over one hundred years ago. There's some freaky, goth, vampire, old world mojo here too, something like the film Orlando or a Rennaisance Faire on a full moon. Overall, there's a really strong artistic conceptual and theatrical sense the band rides hard; there aren't enough bands like Rasputina, ones that can play in character.
