Suicide Vampire

A tribute to the historical character that has contributed to the creation of the myth of the vampire which gave inspiration to Bram Stoker for his famous novel. With these compositions we wish to celebrate the 570 years of the birth of an immortal myth, that has become for many, the main reference in the compiling of literary works as well as musical, theatrical and all other forms of art. A myth that will never die.

— Booklet of Iubilaeum Anno Dracula 2001

Iubilaeum Anno Dracula 2001 is the first EP by the Italian band Theatres des Vampires. The name of the album, as well as the logo in the cover art is a parody on the Great Jubilee of 2000 ("Iubilaeum Anno Domini 2000").

The logo of the Great Jubilee of 2000. In the Iubilaeum Anno Dracula 2001 version the words "Christus heri, hodie, semper" (Christ yesterday, today, forever) were changed to "Sanguis vita est" (Blood is life).
