ARTS & GRAPHICS DISCUSSIONS - LOVE WILL TEAR US APART AGAIN

WHERE DID GOTH COME FROM? Simple. Early 1980s, England. After punk had hit its high point and sort of faded out of the spotlight (though punk is not dead, for the record), bands like Joy Division and The Cure took hold and shaped the subculture we all know and love as goth. There are several genres under the umbrella term of goth, including goth rock, post-punk, and cold wave... but my personal flavor of goth is darkwave.
'At that time, the term "goth" was inseparably connected with gothic rock, whereas "dark wave" acquired a broader meaning, including music artists that were associated with gothic rock and synthesizer-based new wave music, such as Bauhaus, Joy Division, The Cure, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Sisters of Mercy, Anne Clark, Depeche Mode, Gary Numan, and The Chameleons.'
Darkwave is still very much a genre today and, in fact, most of my favorite artists fall under that category including... yeah, you guessed it.

♪ Music has a thousand different subcategories for any one given 'genre'. What are some of your gothy favorites? If you looked up goth, is there any bands or names that surprise you as being considered 'goth'?

I don't really know much about goth music. I love grunge which is kind of a distant cousin, but while I've heard of most of the bands mentioned I wouldn't say for sure I know any of their music. I'll be interested to learn more during the discussion though!

I was surprised to find Evanescence under the category of Goth Rock. Doesn't sound like Goth to me...



I personally am more into punk rock, like Bad Religion and the Offspring... I also like Blink-182, Green Day, Misfits (which is categorized under both punk and goth...), and NOFX. I used to fall asleep to these bands...yes, I fell asleep to punk rock <_<

So, my question to people is: is the band Misfits goth or punk and why?

“Oh my goth, we’re undead, undead, undead, undeader than dead.” ~ Aurelio Voltaire

Mmm goth music. “Goth” as the main umbrella houses soooo many different kinds of genres, some you may agree with, some you may not. Per the question above, I would consider The Misfits punk, not goth, BUT I know many goths who absolutely love their music.

I recently went to a goth convention called Dark Side Of The Con, where they had so many different bands, it blew my mind, and many of my recent favorites, while not all may not be considered goth, were there. Bella Morte, The Rain Within, Ego Likeness, Stoneburner, Glass Apple Bonzai, Assemblage 23, Adoration Destroyed just to name a few.

AHHHHHHHHHHH, this makes my black heart happy. 😍

I certainly don't listen to one genre of goth music, or just goth music itself. But it is my favorite music, to be sure.

While I like bands like Joy Division, Bauhaus and The Cure (and Depeche Mode will always be one of my favorite bands), there are so many amazing groups out there that people need to check out. London After Midnight, Mephisto Walz, She Past Away, The Rain Within, Bella Morte, Lycia, Claire Voyant, Lebanon Hanover, Sopor Aeternus and the Ensemble of Shadows, Clan of Xymox, Corpus Delicti...I could go on and on and on. But do yourselves a favor and check some of these bands out if you never have.

London After Midnight! Yesss! And I love Blink-182 <3
Cold Cave is also a good listen.

Ngl other than Blaqk Audio my next favorite would probably be Love and Rockets.

London After Midnight, She Past Away <3 <3

Anna Varney from Sopor Aeternus and the Ensemble of Shadows is simply amazing. Her voice is heavenly.


I haven't listened to Blaqk Audio in a while, but I really enjoyed what they put out.

You seriously won’t be disappointed. There is such a wealth of amazing music out there. Music that can stir emotions and just touch something deep inside.

Goth truly excels at it, musically and lyrically, no matter what genre you listen to.

YouTube has a wealth of bands to discover. I’d advise anyone new to the genre to start there and then move on to other resources.

One person in particular I would look up is Andy Deane. He’s the singer in Bella Morte and The Rain Within And does stuff on patreon. He has seriously moved me to tears with his music. Made me feel hope. Ugh.

I’m currently sitting in a goth/industrial club listening to Grendel. They’re more industrial than goth but holy hell. They pack a punch.

The show is over now. We’re waiting for Erik Gustafson from Grendel to be done packing his gear up so we can say hi/bye.

Striplicker was intense. I had to actually leave the club for a few because I couldn’t handle my insides jiggling around.
