The darkwave outfit Paralysed Age matches the likes of the Cruxshadows and VNV Nation and made themselves a name in new millennium goth rock. Paralysed Age, which is comprised of Marco Neumann, Stefan Kirsch, and Michael Knust, captured common goth music with their themed vampire compositions that hum to the wickedness of Bram Stoker and Edgar Allen Poe. Their U.S. debut Empire of the Vampire was released in 2000, combining material found on the band's previous two albums from their native Germany. Their club hit "Bloodsucker" was also found on the enigmatic soundtrack to Vampire: the Masquerade, the compilation entitled Music From the Succubus Club, which was released in fall 2000.
