Vlad Tepes was a French black metal band who formed in 1992 in Brest. The name originated from the 15th century Wallachian ruler, Vlad Țepeș, who was the inspiration for Bram Stoker's fictional vampire Dracula.
The group belonged to the underground black metal group Les Légions Noires (The Black Legions) along with other acts such as Black Murder, Torgeist, Mütiilation, Belkètre, and Brenoritvrezorkre. Vlad Tepes shared band members with many of the other Black Legions bands and projects. As of now the group is officially not active due to the hype surrounding them.
