Vampyre Heart / Press

“The first thing you noticed about the band is the overall look. Coffin shaped guitar cases, which opened to reveal some lethal looking black BC Rich guitars caught the eye immediately. The guitarist (DSoul) and bassist (Taff) were decked out in black, with former sporting a rather eye catching leather coat and lead singer (Summer) also kitted out in black but with a long red overcoat. Even the microphone had been decked out with blue lights and some vicious looking added extras....”

Dave Scott - Fireworks Magazine

“They open with LP title “The Ghost Of Time” and then “Devil’s Mercy”, two Halloween-inspired titles if ever I’ve heard some. Listening to Vampyre Heart one cant help but detecting a nod toward Goth mainstays Die So Fluid. Vocally the similarities are there from a band that are unapologetically Goth. Taff (bass) has an interesting style of playing, almost fingering his strings while twisting his hands around said instrument! Multi-instrumentalist D Soul is the main shape shifter mind as he uses up every inch of this small stage. Most of these songs have that big 80′s Electro/Goth sound running through them,but if I have one criticism its the length of some of the songs-unless of course you’re releasing that 80′s staple the 12″ single! “Freak Inside” is another great song before they leave us with set highlight “Evil Eyes”. This is a first for me witnessing this band and with the release of a novel to accompany said LP, one can expect bigger audiences for Vamp”

Ross A. Ferrone - Rock Regeneration

“…Vampyre Heart dominated on stage with Summer enjoying the moments as she engaged with the audience throughout ‘Devils Mercy’ and ‘Lost Within the Shadows’ before finishing with two potential darkwave dance floor numbers ‘Crypt’ & ‘Evil Eyes’”

DeeJay Armand - Dominion Magazine

“…your nice and catchy hit! - "Lost within the Shadows". In my opinion your sound looks like a hypothetical crossover between Siouxsie (for the hypnotic and bewitched female vocals) and early Inkubus Sukkubus for the song-writing.”

Lunaria - DarkItalia Magazine

“Vampyre Heart blend hard guitar orientated Rock with subtle electronic embellishments to create a heavy but catchy three-track demo. There are punk elements akin to the likes of Lesbian Bed Death and even the psychedelia of Inkubus Sukkubus in the band’s sound, but with a stronger emphasis on a more American flavour of hard rock complete with soaring guitar solos.”

Sean M. Palfrey - Dominion Magazine

“Firstly, I want to say that the UK certainly has some unsigned talent scattered around this amazing country of ours. At the same time, Bournemouth sure is not known as a rock mecca. But hiding somewhere down there is a duo (now trio) who go by the name Vampyre Heart. Vampyre Heart consists of D Soul and vocalist Summer (And Taff on Bass). The style of music I would class as Gothic/Electro, and I feel that some of the songs here would go down well in clubland.”
