Hello dead goth thread.

This showed up in my twitter feed today:

http://teamrock.com/feature/2016-05...goth-30-records

Some pretty cool stuff in there until towards the end when it switches to goth/doom metal like Paradise Lost and Type O Negative, etc...

Have fun.

Apparently I bookmarked this thread some time ago with the intention of reading/contributing, but then it fell off my pages until this bump ha.

Gone through it all ... huge fan of Floodland, early (and late) Cure, Birthday Massacre, Austra, etc.

A couple favourites I haven't seen mentioned --

Ashbury Heights is synthpop-tinged, but lyrically goth as bats.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9NotAkibB2k

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TXP5Z79HfdI

The first and third albums, Three Cheers for the Newlydeads, and The Looking Glass society have a gothier sound. The second album, Take Cair Paramour, is super glassy happy-sounding synthpop, but still has songs like this:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RYvzg6Y6Ma0

I love the disparity with the lyrics.

The band had major record-label and personnel issues, but it's all resolved and they're steadily making music again.

Din [a] Tod unfortunately around anymore. Kind of like sulky synth punk?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ep2nRLdlJ_E

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HalbSKok6yg

But they have 'nice' tracks like this too:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sPLK0ZXdxcY

Of course there's the whole electro-industrial thing too which is usually veering into goth territory.

Sorta gothy dreampop, a bit like Thalia or Big Electric Cat. I saw them play last weekend and they were really good live, too.

Also seconding Drab Majesty. Saw them a few weeks ago, live show had poor sound but it might've just been the venue. They've still got panache and The Foyer is one of the most sublime goth songs I've heard in awhile. And the guy is pretty I mean drat.

Does Rasputina count as goth? All the goth kids listened to her in high school. Anyway, she has this fantastic over of Wish You Were Here that has a much more tragic overtone than Floyd's original

I love Marriages, and Salome was probably my favorite album of last year, but I think the goth influence shows even more on her solo albums. Her new one just came out about a week ago.

Really solid goth-folk album, though I tend to like Some Heavy Ocean a bit better.

Why should I follow your Founder when he is not an Eighth Level anything outside his own cult?


Just found this thread. I have a music blog and have a ton of reviews of goth stuff that was actually made in 2016. Here, have a category. Dredging through blogs is a trivial inconvenience, and nobody can be bothered with that! So have some bands in particular:



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vgpPsNnb3AM

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nVDnVx81X9Y

TETROLUGOSI: Tetrolugosi II — sp00py music for goths that isn’t at all goth rock, done on assorted keyboards, theremin and bass guitar. Cheesy as hell, but nevertheless pretty good and fun with it. Above: “All The Monsters” and “Under The Full Moon”, which are representative.



BRANDY KILLS: The Blackest Black — goth rock, of the drum machine type, with synths and decent tunes, which has probably been the necessary missing element much of this time — poppy industrial keeps recolonising goth because it actually has good tunes and not just a style. This album seems to have noticed that and used it. Heavy on the goth clichés, I’d suggest on first listen you start at “Rock The Boat”, “Fallen Icon” and “Black Gold”. Full points for non-scene font choice too.



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fChnyDYyGEM

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8h_MSqDCwkQ

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ftmfXM0nA4

HANTE: No Hard Feelings (Synth Religion) — solo singer-songwriter-producer Hélène de Thoury brings the mopey darkwave synthpop. Above: “Living In A French Movie” from this EP and “Noir” from her previous album This Fog That Never Ends (she made the videos too) and “Hate vs Love” at Wave Gothik Treffen in May this year .



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yMg31jZaRAk

SE DELAN: Drifter (KScope) — The press release page (includes album stream) says “dark, alternative, new wave” and studiously avoids the word g*th, but OH COME ON. 1992 in black with songs; Curve doing early eighties Cure. ’80s goth rock of the sort with a drummer rather than a drum machine, with lots of goth rock female vocbal stylings you could probably pick the sources for with a little effort. The music is done by the guy from Crippled Black Phoenix, which this is nothing like and is way more interesting than. The singer’s previous was Killing Mood. Neither is particularly metal but both got attention from the metal world. They seem to have arrived at something indistinguishable from ’80s goth rock the long way around.



that'll do for the moment. I find this stuff just camping out in the Bandcamp "new arrivals" listings for particular favourite tags. Maybe 1 in 40 is worth writing up, but that's a pretty good score. Always use Bandcamp "new arrivals" listings as your radio. Also, it's super-convenient that bands have mostly worked out that video is not optional in 2016, because nobody wants to read words.
