Nosferatu is an English Gothic rock band formed in March 1988 by Damien DeVille, Vlad Janicek, and Sapphire Aurora. They are one of the most successful second wave Gothic rock groups in the world. Their albums, singles, and DVD have sold over 100,000 copies world-wide. They have also sold hundreds of thousands of songs on various compilation albums since their first commercial release in the early 1990s.
Nosferatu have the credibility and good fortune of being one of the few UK-based Gothic rock bands to receive chart success both in the UK and Germany. Their back catalog of independent releases, to date, stands at 8 singles, 11 albums, 1 DVD and songs featured on 48 compilation albums. Nosferatu have a repertoire of over 100 songs and have performed over 300 concerts in 14 countries: Austria, Belgium, England, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Republic Of Ireland, Scotland, Spain, and Wales.
The current lineup of the band is Louis DeWray (Voice), Damien DeVille (guitar), Belle Star (drums) & Stefan Diablo (bass).
Damien DeVille is the only member to have been in the band all through its 23 year history. He has written a book on NOSFERATU titled "Vampyres Cry - The History Of A Gothic Rock Band", which is due to be published in late 2011.
There was also a death metal band from Sweden called Nosferatu. They released only two demos in 1990., called "REH 90.03.06" and "Decadence Remains".
