Answer #3

Siouxsie and the banshees The Cure Joy Division The Cruxshadows Switchblade Sympony Christian Death Voodoo Church Kommunity Fk Cinema strange Depeche Mode

Answer #4

Don’t listen to them, they don’t know what “Goth” music is if it creeped up behind them! All they know are the popular mainstream bands..

Goth music originated in the 80’s as the darkwave movement. If you want to listen to some real Goth mucis I’d Advise:

Siouxsie and the Banshees The Cure Echo and the Bunnymen Sisters of Mercy Bauhaus Depeche Mode Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds Einstürzende Neubauten

That’s the real deal, not the new poser bands that just make a profit without any real creativity.

Answer #5

My Chemical Romance, AFI, Disturbed, Slipknot, Godsmack,Amon Amorth, Avenged Sevenffold,CREATURE FEATURE, Aiden, Cradle Of Filth, Deathstars, Lacuna Coil, Within Temptation, Emilie Autumn, Nightwish, The 69 Eyes, Eighteen Visions, Black Light Burns, Wednesday 13, Orgy, God Module, MELANCHOLY, Paradise Lost, Therion, Evenessence.

There’s a few, enjoy. =]

Answer #6

Clan of Xymox, Faith and the Muse, Diary of Dreams, Unto Ashes, Rhea’s Obsession, Qntal, Joy Division, The Birthday Massacre, Blutengel, Cesium 137, Collide, The Faint, Das Ich, Headscan… Goth bands branch off into many categories (deathrock, darkwave, industrial, gothrock, EBM, glam, synthpop, dark macabre, neo-medieval…) and they’re rooted from post-punk in the mid-to-late 70’s

Answer #16

Answer #17

These are some proper goth albums you should check out:

The Cure - ‘Faith’, ‘Pornography’, ‘Disintegration’ The Cult - ‘Love’ Bauhaus - ‘In The Flat Field’, ‘The Sky’s Gone Out’, ‘Mask’

Bands such as My Chemical Romance, Evanescence, HIM, The Rasmus…etc would be classed as modern goth because of their image or song lyrics. Their influences would probably be from proper 80s goth bands. Some would argue they’re not goth at all, but that’s a matter of opinion. MCR has some elements of goth in their image and music. Their music video for ‘Helena’ consisted of a ballet dancer rising from the dead. And the make-up they used to wear was pretty gothic: black or red eyeshadow and pale faces and black hair. It’s the same for Evanescence, really. Frontwoman Amy Lee’s image is very gothic: long black hair and dark eyes and beautiful goth dresses. And some songs are creepy and full of emotional or angry lyrics.

Theatres des Vampires(gothic black metal/vampire rock)

Anorexia Nervosa(symphonic black metal/gothic black metal) <- very “black” ../

Cradle of Filth(gothic black metal/black metal) <- only principle of evil through midian…

Answer #19

Christian Death, older but good stuff. lol on the MCR, disturbed, exc… Korn isn’t goth either, but I did like the music that JDavis made for the Queen of the Damned. Switchblade Symphony is another band that you could classify as goth, many haven’t heard of em-chek em out.

Answer #20

Answer #21

There were only a few posters here who actually know what goth music is… people please get a clue!

Answer #23

My favs:




Corvus Corax


Faith and the Muse

Diene Lakaien


Inkubus Sukkubus

Diary of Dreams

Clan of Xymox

L’ame Immortelle

Answer #24

There are LOADS of good goth bands. Some of my Personal favourites are: The Sisters of Mercy The Cure Bahaus Siouxsie and the Banshees These are all classic goth bands, then there is more modern Goth/Metal bands such as Cradle of Filth Dimmu Borgir Nightwish Within Temptation Then you can move onto industrial or CyberGoth with The Cruxsgadows VNV Nation Combichrist Covenent Goth music is very varied..Hope you find some stuff you like =) oh and ignore there guys that are giving rock or other metal suggestions - they don’t know what they’re talking about

Answer #25

Nods. A lot of these people who just posted don’t really know what goth bands are. They aren’t these mainstream bands that we hear on the radio so frequently. One of the originals (if not the original goth rock band) was Bauhaus. Very good stuff. Siouxsie and the Banshees is excellent, Lacrimosa, Theatre of Tragedy which I enjoy quite a bit. Temple of Rain, Christian Death, The Cruxshadows, and so on. There are many goth bands out there, but, alas, their musical talent is never put to the radio. My recommendations are Bauhaus, Theatre of Tragedy, The Cruxshadows, and Siouxsie and the Banshees.

Answer #26

urgh, Nightwish is more opera metal than Goth… =r, besides, the lead woman gives me a headache…

Otep is pwetty cool… ^_^ especially songs like:

Filthee [easily, one of her best] House of Secrets Hooks & Splinters Buried Alive

but she can sing some seriously disturbed stuff ffs.

btw Cradle of Filth is more black/Pagan metal, they go for the whole Satanist/antichrist image.

The Birthday Massacre is ghey. Flat out.

Answer #27


I’m laughing at the various posts including MCR, Disturbed, Slipknot, Maralyn Manson etc. I mean… Come on! If you see someone asking for good “goth” bands.. Why do you give these emo, or “nu” metal bands? You clearly nothing about either subgenres. But anyway..

There are the older, classic bands: Siouxsie and the Banshees The Cure Sisters of Mercy Bauhaus etc. There are the newer, generally heavier bands: Dimmu Borgir Within Temptation (personal fav.) Cradle of Filth etc.

Sorry for the hate earlier.. Just had to point it out. =D

Answer #28

marilyn mason is a freak … I must say I do love HIM buh they aren’t goth … love metal with psedo satanism ( they are actually ahiests) I read somewhere that the damned went through a goth phrase .. meh I dont know havent actaully listened to any of the damned music … even though my mum named me after a song from then … I got to get aroudn to it lmao seether is not goth … its not even metal … its post grunge http://vampirefreaks.com/musicplayer/ it has a lot good music on it ^_^

Answer #29

ok let me be one of few people to point out goth music originted from the mid to late 70s

Gary Numan is good Bauhaus
Sisters Of Mercy Craddel Of Filth (late) not there earlie stuff its black metal and there new stuff isnt much gotic but in a way it is Block 57 brain leisur chirstan death 1334 colide if you want to know more I could type for almost an hour :)

Answer #30

Gothicish:Epica..Nightwish…Chalice..Mortal Love…69 Eyes..Twisted Sisters..The Cure…Nostra Morte..Cradle of Filth (either black/death metal or goth..still cool sounding) Metal:Slayer..Slipknot..Avenged Sevenfold…Bullet for my Valentine..Aiden <—do not let people tell you this is goth because they are COMPLETELY wrong as for Misfits…thats a stupid thing to say…they are some type of punk

Answer #31

BAUHAUS is back with a new album called, “Go Away White” btw (rolling stone) I wouldnt say that bands like 3 days grace or breaking benjamin are goth. Goth is relatively new so there aren’t that many out there but one new one thats realllyyy good it called I Am Ghost they do some sick stuff, they even sing in latin and have the whole dark-opera-electric violin- thing going on. there really into the whole vampire thing too.

Answer #32

half the bands the people before be listed are not even gothic they are other rock geners.

Answer #33

My Chemical Romance, AFI, Disturbed, Slipknot, Godsmack & most other hard rock bandz.

Answer #34

Music shouldn’t be categorized into cliques.

Answer #35

Three Days Grace, Evanescence, Avenged Sevenfold and MCR

Answer #36

Jack off Jill Inkubus Sukkubus sorry I didnt include that in one post =O

Answer #37
