Velvet Cacoon was a black metal band from Portland, Oregon, USA. According to members, the band was formed in 1996, although no material was released publicly until 2002. Due to the lack of information being provided by its members, it has proved very difficult to discern what is truth and what is fiction about Velvet Cacoon.
As of December 2009, Velvet Cacoon has now broken up. However, Josh has posted on several forums that he has begun a new project entitled Clair Cassis. Clair Cassis released their album on vinyl LP record via Starlight Temple Society in 2010, and will do a subsequent CD release through Full Moon Productions.
