Since Lordi in 2006 there’s been a Eurovision Song Contest entry pretty much every year about monsters, so Darker Days suggested picking character types live.
So I did.
First rule: don’t say Malkavians for everything.
Second rule: don’t say Daughters Of Cacophony for everything.
Ukraine: statement jewellery, floating out of a coffin, very concerned about the Ladder, using Lure of Flames. Tremere.
Spain: Nice young couple not noticing the stage around them. Mortals!
Slovenia: End credits of a mecha anime. Void Engineers.
Lithuania: Ballad about not growing old with your beloved. Haunter.
Austria: A former member of Electric Church. Cult of Ecstasy.
Estonia: I only allow myself one Daughter of Cacophony suggestion in the contest. This is it.
Norway: Incredibly vague creative process and stretching the rules by being here. Chanteur.
Portugal: Trying not to be noticed. Mekhet!
United Kingdom: weather control and stoicism. Dreamspeakers.
Serbia: Yikes. Sluagh.
Germany: I'll skip this one.
Albania: Costumes by the Hollow Ones.
France: Protest song. Polo necks. Free Council.
Czech Republic: Time Lord. I mean Virtual Adept.
Australia: We have nothing, except love. Caitiff?
Finland: Fighting demons and using pyrotechnics? Task Force Valkyrie.
Bulgaria: "I love beyond the bones!" The Risen.
Moldova: Bright, cheery, fun for all the family. Pentex.
Sweden: So polished. NWO.
Hungary: Well, obviously. Brujah.
Netherlands: That time they did a Deadlands crossover.
Ireland: A stronger statement than it seems. The Carthian Movement.
Cyprus: I LIKE FIRE. House Flambeau.
Italy: We're quite angry about war. Anarchs.
And I didn't say Malkavians once. Not even for the clucking and waving cats.
