Venus de Vilo / Bio

The Voice Of Horror and Queen Of The Pumpkin Patch, Venus de Vilo, at your dark and deranged service.
Described by "The Bite" Gothic-Alternative magazine as "The love child of Marilyn Manson and Amanda Palmer."
Referred to amongst Her fans, "The Gravediggers" as "The Queen Of Weird" , "The Irish Emilie Autumn" and "Yer Wan From The Grudge!")
Graduating from the BCFE Rock School in 2011, Venus de Vilo has been nationwide inflicting Her gruesome and exceptionally WEIRD live shows on the unsuspecting and unwilling public at large.
Performing EVERYWHERE from Rock bars, Metal bars, alternative horror/metal Burlesque and Cabaret nights, open mic nights, miscellaneous venues of note (The Village, The Button Factory etc.) and general gigs of ill-repute.
As of 2012, Venus has also been known to hold dominion over and host Her very own, every-couple-of-monthly, ghoulishly themed gigs.

Not just content with frightening the locals, Venus released Her debut 6-track EP "EDGAR ALLAN HO" at Halloween 2012. This release attracted international attention from underground radio stations, alternative magazines and assorted like-minded ne'er-do-wells.
Prompted by such sordid infamy, Venus then decided to garner more attention for Herself and released Her second EP "TILL DEATH DO US PARTY". (2013)
Aural displeasure wasn't enough for Venus though. 2013 saw Her dazzlingly disturbed venture into the world of the moving picture, via the music video. More like mini-horror movies than music videos "Crazy For You" (2013) and "Fangtasy" (2014) since their subsequent un-leashings have been proving most unpopular on Youtube.

Friday the 13th of June 2014 saw Venus launch Her very first, but NOT Her last, 16 page, hand drawn, full colour comic book "Crazy For You." (Yes, an adaptation of Her song and music video of the same name!) Now working on Her TENTH disgusting, bloody and perverse horror comic book, Venus has officially found yet another medium to #ShareTheScare with... More artwork can be found on Her DeviantArt profile: http://venusdevilo.deviantart.com/

Currently working on Her first full length thirteen track magnum opus, "HANDLE WITH SCARE: More art installation, comic book and highly fictional auto-biography than an actual album!)
January 2015 saw the second half of Her warped masterpiece infect the internet.
With song titles like "I've Got 99 Zombies And A Witch Ain't One." ,"Absinthe Makes The Heart Grow Fonder." , "Paint Me Like One Of Your Dead Girls" and "Please Sir, Can I Have Some Gore?" you just KNOW that "HANDLE WITH SCARE" is going to be a musical experience to die for!
