Die Verbannten Kinder Evas (German for "The Banished Children of Eva") is an Austrian band formed in Vienna in 1993, combining the style of neoclassical darkwave music with gothic imagery. It was created by Richard Lederer (Protector) and Michael Gregor (Silenius) from the black metal band Summoning. The band released a debut self-titled album in March 1995, with vocals done by both Protector and Silenius, as well as with the voice of Julia Lederer (Protector's sister) and Nora El Shamah. Die verbannten Kinder Evas returned after a two-year break with "Come Heavy Sleep", musically speaking, the recording remained true to their original sound, perhaps becoming more complex and more classical in style. The vocals are done by Julia and Richard Lederer, as Nora left the band due to lack of interest and Silenius focused more on Summoning. Die verbannten Kinder Evas signed to Napalm Records in 1999 and released a third album, "In Darkness Let Me Dwell". With this release Die Verbannten Kinder Evas continue to make considerable use of their now trademark classical sound. Furthermore, the addition of Tania Borsky's singing talent to Richard Lederer's diverse vocal styles add colour and contrast to the dark tracks typical of the band. The Die verbannten Kinder Evas' last album, titled "Dusk and Void Became Alive" was released in November 2006, which features a new female singer named Christina Kroustali.
