Vlad The Inhaler was born from the vision of Jeff Mason aka Vlad The Enforcer and Russ Bellucci aka Vlad The Beholder. After months of planning and formulating ideas in 1993 about a band that had no boundaries, through late night and on the road conversations, and writing down ideas and formulating crazy musical changes on paper, The Enforcer brought his drums, bass guitar, and PA System up to the apartment he had with friend Thomas Ryan and filled his bedroom with musical equipment to start their musical journey.
Thomas Ryan who originally had other musical plans he wanted to pursue, decided to join the Enforcer and The Beholders vision and became the third and final member of what would later be referred to as “The Circle” and was named Vlad The Whip.
The band has faded and reformed many times through the past three decades. The current lineup is Thomas Ryan on Vocals and Bass Guitar, Tony Lambides on Guitar, Freddy Morales on Keyboards, and Jeff Mason aka Vlad The Enforcer on Drums, Bells and Strange Sounds.

With this website total re-vamp, only created due to ever evolving technologies and cyber vulnerabilities, I (The Enforcer) have combined the second (actually first) Vlad The Inhaler website into this website, because I no longer want to maintain 2 websites of the band.
This website has been online in it’s last form since 2007, but was first online as far back as 1999. It was the main website about the history of the band, residing on the main domain VladTheInhaler.com until around 2010 when it was moved to accommodate a new website about the new lineup of the band. It’s been around all along for true band history buffs, although no-one seemed to actually realise it was there.
Check it out, if you dare…. or care…..
