The Cosmic Vampires got together in 2000 and were kidnapped by Dr. Phibes for experiments in his own Lab based in Roquetas del Mal, Almeria city in the south of Spain.
Their sound is defined as a “terrifying surf from outer space”, heavily influenced by garage rock ‘n' roll, classic surf instrumental sound tracks, ultra lounge, Psychobilly, as well as all those Mexican wrestling, horror, sci-fi and B-movies from the 50’s and the 60’s.
The band have already shared the stage with other popular Spanish and Mexican bands, such as Chewbacca´s, Los Tortures, The Gaforic Explosion, The Vibrants, The Charades, Lost Acapulco, Imperial Surfers, Kiko Veneno, The Diesel Dogs, Standstill, Los Infraseres, Los Fregaplatos, Cromosoma 3, Muchachito Bombo Infierno, Los Malignos, Los Bikini Lovers, Asskickers Enmascarados, and many many more! (long is the list!)
So shake that shrunken head on a stick, swing those shovels and dig the chilling, thrilling sounds of the COSMIC VAMPIRES!
Unfortunately the band is no longer active but you can still enjoy their magnificent 10" green monster vinyl!!!
