12 Days to Dragon*Con: Band Profile, Valentine Wolfe

Valentine Wolfe is an awesomely gothy looking band composed of Lady Sarah Black and Braxton Ballew.

Awesomely gothy, right?

Valentine Wolfe describes itself as “Purveyors, Performers, and Composers of the finest Gothic Cabaret music for Voice, Double Bass, and Electronics. Proudly providing macabre entertainment for Living, Dead, and Otherwise, since 2006….Valentine Wolfe is an electronic music group that features operatic female vocals, solo double bass, and electronica driven beats. You’ll hear elements of metal, industrial, goth, trip-hop, j-rock, and classical blended together in a divine cocktail we call Steampunk Macabre.  We like to think if you enjoy artists like Emilie Autumn, Rasputina, Nightwish, and Nine Inch Nails, you’ll like us.”  Steampunk electronica, let us hear it!

Here’s a fan-video made to their song “Snow Queen.”

Oh man I really like that–love the sort of drivey electronica strings in the background, and also the opera-lady vocals.

This is their song, “A Thousand Little Deaths.”

Sixteen-year old me would have been all over this band.  I love it.  Check out Braxton Ballew rocking out on that bass!

So, that’s “The Darkest Night of Winter.”  They lose some points for the Steampunk goggles, but overall I like it.

Talking points:

–Lady Sarah Black and Braxton Ballew

–Gothy Steampunk Electronica

–Stand-up bass, operatic lady vocals.

Two thumbs up, I like it!
