Evil Devil

Evil Devil's project took place in Italy, March 2001, when CremEvil try to put once again together his previous band called Bone Rest which included AmbrosEvil and PiccEvil too. They decided to replace the previous singer with Angel Face, (a very good friend of CremEvil that was since long time in the psycho scene) and change the band name into Evil Devil.
It follows a short period of practicing, and the guys decided to self produce a CD with the songs they wrote, just for fun. The band sent the CD to the German label Crazy Love Records, probably the most important in the psycho scene.

Scary Bitches

Scary Bitches is a deathrock band formed in UK by Alma Geddon and DEADri Ransiid in 1998.
Theatrical designer Dean Blunkell designed the bizarre costumes that pull their image as 'Lesbian Vampyres from Outer Space' into sharp focus, and complement their strange, bizarre, hard hitting, but amusing lyrics about vampyres, werewolfes, strange children, necrophilia & cannibalism that have been described as being in the style of the 'Rocky Horror Picture Show' but with a more modern & vindictive sense of humour'.
