F. W. Murnau's landmark vampire film begins in the Carpathian mountains, where real estate agent Hutter has arrived to close a sale with the reclusive Herr Orlok. Despite the feverish warnings of the local peasants, Hutter journeys to Orlok's sinister castle. Hutter soon discovers that Orlok is no ordinary mortal.


The Invincible Czars make quirky, bold music for lovers of everything in the “other” category. Inspired by comics, sci-fi, fantasy & horror stories, cartoons, comedians, and classical composers, they’re eclectic, dynamic and always have a cinematic flair.


In 1998, guitarist Josh Robins started recording musical themes into his four-track recorder that sounded more like bits of movie scores than indie rock songs. He needed more than the usual guitar, bass, and drums to realize these budding rock symphonies; he taught himself to read music, began writing pieces for instruments he couldn’t play, and eventually assembled the first line-up of The Invincible Czars.


Since those early days, the Invincible Czars have evolved from a novel act in Austin’s Red River scene to a reverse classical-crossover powerhouse playing all over the US, blending influences as disparate as Tchaikovsky and Van Halen.


Whether they’re playing a rock show in a club, a live silent film soundtrack in a theater, or a holiday event in a park, The Invincible Czars are always entertaining and out of the ordinary. Their musicianship is complemented with humor, magic tricks, fun and wacky wardrobe, and occasional minor acrobatics.


Audiences all over the US have eagerly gathered in art house cinemas to experience The Invincible Czars’ intricately crafted and precisely performed silent film soundtracks. The band aims to give modern day movie-goers a musical context through which they can better appreciate the importance and artistry of silent era films. Their catalog includes horror, fantasy and western movies.

 

“As good as any silent film accompanists I’ve seen.”

Jason Silverman, Filmmaker at Center for Contemporary Art Santa Fe, NM

 

“(The Invincibe Czars’) live Nosferatu silent film score is a brilliantly realized wedding of contemporary musical sensibility and technology with early 20th century cinema.”
