ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Vampire Nation Returns - California, 1432. An island at the end of the "terrestrial realm," where the legendary Queen Calafia, the Black Amazon Queen after whom California was named, reigned supreme over the original settlers of California (known as Black Californians in historical circles). But with The Spanish-Euro Wars ahead, dark days were approaching-and this is their story. Calafia is Vampire Nation's 11th studio album.

History Of The Original Black Californians
The history of the original Black peoples of California is not mentioned in most American history books. The term "indian" is used to classify all the peoples found in the Americas when Columbus arrived. Yet Columbus and his men, as well as people like Balboa and Peter Matyr mention "Ethiopians" in the Caribbean, the Darien region of Panama, the coast of South America, California, and other areas. These Blacks were the "Descendants of Ham", specifically those with black skin and kinky/curly hair that the Spaniards and other Europeans were instructed to capture and enslave, then Christianize based on the edict of the mid 1400s.

"Know that to the right hand of the Indies was an island called California, very near the region of the Terrestrial Paradise, which was populated by black women, without there being any men among them, that almost like the Amazons was their style of living. These were vigorous bodies and strong and ardent hearts and of great strength; the island itself the strongest in steep rocks and great boulders that is found in the world; their arms were all of gold, and also the harnesses of the wild beasts on which , after having tamed them, they rode; that in all the island there was no other metal whatsoever. They dwelt in caves very well hewn; they had many ships in which they went out to other parts to make their forays, and the men they seized they took with them, giving then their deaths, as you will further hear. And sometimes when they had peace with their adversaries, they intermixed with all security one with another, and there were carnal unions from which many of them came out pregnant, and if they give birth to a female they kept her, and if they gave birth to a male, then he was killed..."

"There ruled on that island of California a queen great of body, very beautiful for her race, at a flourishing age, desirous in her thoughts of achieving great things, valiant in strength, and cunning in her brave heart-more than any other who had ruled that kingdome before her...Queen Calafia."
