Moonlight Waltz is the ninth studio album by the Italian extreme gothic metal band Theatres des Vampires. A music video for the song "Carmilla" was filmed on August 28 and 29,[when?] directed by David Bracci, who worked on most of Dario Argento's films in the past decade and directed the "Lilith Mater Inferorum" music video.
Is the moon tired? She looks so pale
Within her misty veil:
The scales of the sky from east to west,
And takes no rest.
Before the coming of the night
The moon shows papery white;
Before the dawning of the day
She fades away.— Booklet of Moonlight Waltz, originally from "Sing-Song" by Christina Georgina Rossetti
