Vladimirs United States
Vladimirs formed in 1995 as a side project by members of Bad Samaritans (Brian Day), Thorns of the Carrion (Marquis Thomas), Estuary (Ash Thomas), The Blame (Doug Nevels). The four decided to get together to do some music that was more loose with a 'campy-horror-movie' and 'classic 50's sci-fi' feel lyrically. The first s/t CD 'Vladimirs' was released in January of 1995 and is regarded by many as the '2nd Wave' of horror punk. With elements of punk, metal, goth, and rock the Vladimirs drew a large and diverse audience.
