Top Ten Best Goth Rock Bands
The Contenders: Page 4XW
I wont call them Goth but immortal, dead promised, dancer in the dark and the whole hide from the sun album does show hints of it..
they are really good with Immortal
I absolutely love The Rasmus and Hide from the Sun is a dark and mysterious album plus Lauri Ylönen is so cute
This is amazing band with beautiful dark music and fantastic vocal.also they have vice texts in their songs. Why the hell they are not in top 10? Just listen to them and have an eargasm! )
One of my absolute favourites! Rarely do bands combine amazing, idealistic and unique music with theatrical elements. Truly unique! Not necessarily "goth" goth though.
Want to know what's the closest thing to Gothic Rock? No, it's not Gothic Metal, it's Post-Punk. All the essential Goth albums (The Cure's "Pornography", Siouxsie & the Banshee's "Juju", Bauhaus' "In the Flat Field") have strong ties to Post-Punk. And Public Image Ltd were very essential to Post-Punk. Plus, as the comment below (or above) says, they're more Gothic than some the bands getting into the Top 10 (Nightwish, HIM, Evanescence)V1 Comment
Look at YouTube; some excellent soundsV1 Comment
Now this was a band! Pure energy live and the goth tones coming through via the recorded material. Just listen to Give Me Tomorrow and Infected to see what I mean. FYI.. The band were around in the 80's and 90's playing with the likes of Salvation, Every New Dead Ghost etc.
A great band with a driving bass similar to early New Model Army but then with Gothic tones over the top. Twilight years would be my favourite track.
So amazing! The singer Gavin is so talented!
Bring on a comeback tour!V2 Comments
At least number 5, there song dead girls are easy is one of the best songs ever, back in blood agen another great gothic song. Come on you can not miss them out of the top 10
Quite easy one of the best bands period. They can sound one way one song and totally different on another.
A mix of Type-O Negative, Sisters of Mercy and HIM all wrapped into one tragically beautiful package, great work guys.V1 Comment
I guess no one knows pure gothic rock huh?.. Cradle of filth is the greatest and nothing can take their place. They are more important than the food ya eat and the air ya breath.
Seriously, clearly no one has listened to any of their songs they are pure gold. they deserve more then a pathetic place at 60 they are the kings of metal!
After listening "Bathory Aria" I became a fan.
Father and Mother of gothic...V8 Comments
Excellent sound, 4 cellists that know how to create atmosphere
Lacrimosa is the best gothic rock band EVER. No question.V1 Comment
Each of their albums/songs have such an amazing, beautiful touch. Even their demo tape is so eerily peaceful to listen.
Easily the most underrated goth rock band of all time.
The gratest gothic metal band in the world, pioneers of the "beauty and the beast", pioneer of Gothic/Industrial metal, pioneers on female fronted, 20 years of legend. They had the most beautiful lyrics written in old english and german, two beautiful voices (Liv and Nell), the beast keyboards in metal (Lorentz Aspen) and the greatest songwritter in the world, Raymond Rohonyi!
