After Eve Evangel spit up his previous band Sanguis et Cinis, who released 6 albums that gained cult status and were considered by some to be amongst the most influencial bands within the german gothic movement of the mid 90ies, in 2007 he decided to do something new. Inspired by japanese music and fashion he founded Lolita KompleX together with showpiece lolita nana and guitar player Dushi to cater their need to create an unique mixture of traditional western gothic, metal and rock tunes combined with crazy japanese impulses.
 It paid off. Their first live already draw a lot of attention and helped the band gathering a large following. Word spread that Lolita KompleX are an amazing live band and their concerts - being a mixture of classic rockshows combined with ciruslike cabaret and improv - are always a lot of fun.
The band played at various conventions in Austria and got invitations from neighboring countries such as Germany or Hungary. After improving their sound at liveshows the band finally started recording demos for their debut album and signed a record deal with echozone in 2010.
Emil joined the by then 5 piece band and Lolita KompleX recorded their debut album as well as 2 video clips.
"Le Cabaret des Marionnettes" was released may 2012 and shows all different facettes of Lolita KompleX from traditional gothic, driving metal, raw punk, melancholic rock to edgy visual kei or even some electro. It also features a colaboration with japanese post punk legend "Madame Edwarda". The album got a lot of positive feedback and was perceived well by the alternative media calling Lolita KompleX a band on the rise. Later that year Lolita KompleX did a tour through Japan playing Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto. After the demise of the previous bassplayer and drummer, polish bassplayer Loony Grotesque and energetic NY trained female drummer Marina completed the line-up in early 2012 and the band started working on new songs and played a successfull show headlining the visual kei event at the renowned WAVE GOTIK TREFFEN in Leipzig.
The next album is due to be released in 2013.
