Victoria Unikel is a multitalented and award-winning international artist, legendary and shocking performer, producer and creator.
The Exorcist, a character she created in 2007 when Victoria started and headed her industrial rock group of the same name, became the symbol of freedom from oppression and evil that she saw around her in the communist USSR. The songs she wrote and performed exposed the lies and corruption of the old order and called for the removal of Lenin from the Red Square to banish all idols from the land. She led several actual actions to do this, and even gathered the support of the Russian Orthodox Church and some notable Russian politicians. The building where Lenin’s body is now stored was also designed to be a copy of an ancient church dedicated to Satan built in 288 BC in the city of Pergamon in Western Turkey. It was first discovered in the late 19th Century, then was stolen away by the Nazis during WWII and brought to Berlin. When the Russian forces occupied Berlin and ransacked it, they took the entire building and shipped it to Moscow to be nearer to the copy that was built as a tomb for Lenin in 1924. This music project had great success in Russia and in Germany and she took part in demonstrations and publicly extolled the public to seek truth and light and not be corrupted by evil.
Her comic book about the superhero “Exorcist” has been published by ComiXology. This unique limited edition gothic political NFT collection saga is being published on KnownOrigin.io as a long-running series.
