Venus Diablo's Beautiful Curse combines devil's swing, original soundtrack, and eerie jazz into a unique blend unlike any other band. Their power is in their dynamics, although the song writing is excellent as well. Equal weight is placed on each member of this three piece band with Steve Mickelson's baritone vocals sweeping over the top. Includes a rough-and-tumble cover of Shirley Bassey's great Goldfinger theme.
British extreme metallers Cradle of Filth have finally crossed the murky and treacherous depths between music and comics--a feat oft attempted, but rarely achieved with the power, elegance, and literary fire of The Curse of Venus Aversa. Based on a story by Dani Filth and New Orleans comic book author Kurt Amacker (Dead Souls, The 69 Eyes: Helsinki Vampires), the tale drags readers back to the cold, dark days of Victorian England.

The Strigoi, the Cursed of Venus, have spread through the Holy Roman Empire and parts beyond like a plague. In response, Pope Leo III takes advantage of the scourge to settle an old score with the man he placed on the throne: Charlemagne. The pope leads the papal army into the heart of the empire and demands sovereignty over what he believes is a papal matter.
