The Akademia Awards asked Vamplified to come forth this year and give an awards acceptance speech. Last year “Skeleton Keys” won an award in instrumental music. Vamplified’s rock ballad, “Quicksand” also made it to the #1 chart position for both Hot XM and Star 100 Radio. Karen St. Claire, president of Vamplified speaks candidly about The Akademia. Winning in instrumental music she adds a surprising twist into the speech as she sings a diddly, acapella style from a 20 year recollection. This year she won an “Executive Award” in Rock.
This band has not only hit the major targets to position itself in a personâ€™s favorite band list- it sure is in my top 10, but has continued to create thought provoking lyrics, harsh beats and wicked music that has you begging for more! Though not an innovator to EBM/Industrial music, nolongerhuman has and is blowing the minds of many as well as their expectations; from raging shows that leave you pumped fool of energy and crazy screaming fans tugging at their hair.
