Left to be raised by wolves on the steps of Castle Dracula during the Reaper Blizzard in the winter of 84, Avelina was compelled to find her wings and uncover her true vampire, the vampire that stirs within us all, hidden deep in the darkest recesses of our minds soul. Avelinasâ€™ odyssey would take her through many different artistic mediums including poetry, art, photography and music, and lead to the release of her highly anticipated album â€˜Electric Funeral Fireâ€™ by her Gothic Metal band â€˜As Angels Bleedâ€™ in the summer of 2009. Whilst her artistic appetite might change with the dawning of each new day, her requiem will always remain the same, dark, desperate, occultic and vampiric. Influenced most by the sexually religious surreal works of Hieronymus Bosch, H.R Giger and Salvador Dali. Avelina also draws inspiration from movies and books crediting Bram Stoker as her primeval muse.
