Top Ten Best Goth Rock Bands

The Contenders: Page 9

161 The Angina Pectoris

Are surely one of those German Gothic pioneering bands that are also worth to mention.

162 Dawn of Oblivion

Love this band! Their guitarist must be one of the most competent in the genre. This combined with the powerful vocals makes it truly genius gothic metal.

Finest goth metal, my favorite album is Final Chapter with some tongue in cheek goth songs and interesting lyrics.

Great Gothic Metal from Sweden! Looking forward to their new album this year!

Great real goth music!

Besides all this non-Gothic-Rock bands in a vote for Gothic-Rock bands this one actually really IS a Gothic-Rock band.

It is one of the best gothic bands since a long time

Fantastic modern gothic rock at its dark finest!

164 Witching Hour UK Witching Hour UK
165 New Zero God

A great band missing from the list.

166 Kindred Spirits

Swedish true goth rock!

167 The Dukes
168 Catholic Spit
169 Darkseed
170 Two Witches
171 Emilie Autumn

She's not even a band and most of her songs are crap. She's a feminist and she hates ALL men because she was abused, excuse me, she wasn't abused by EVERY single men, was she?! And this is coming from a girl. She's making too much of a big deal. Also she uses her mental illness to get away with everything, even though "she doesn't let her illness define her". Yeah sure.

Hard to believe one of her inspirations is Moi Dix Mois. If she's inspired by, then she's doing something wrong because she sounds like crap compared to Moi Dix Mois.

172 Fools Dance
173 Red Red Red is an American rock band from Nashville, Tennessee, formed in 2002. The band's lineup consists of singer Michael Barnes, guitarist Anthony Armstrong, and bassist Randy Armstrong.

I don't know if they are characterized by goth but as a band of any kind, they are fantastic.

They're more Christian than Goth.

174 Ghost Dance
175 My Dying Bride My Dying Bride My Dying Bride are an English doom metal band formed in Bradford, England in 1990. To date, My Dying Bride have released twelve full-length studio albums, three EPs, one demo, one box set, four compilation albums, one live album, and one live CD/DVD release.

Best goth/doom rock/metal band of all time come on seriously the singer is English and German and the band produces English and German songs = Pure Class

Best goth metal band. No further discussion!

176 Jesus on Extasy

Direct Injection, Lies, Heartless, and Sometimes are the best songs by them, I personally think!

177 Skinny Puppy

Amazing. This 80's goth band is wait got me into goth in first place.

Why oh WHY they're not in the top ten? Half of you PB&J choking millennials probably would even a list if it wasn't for Nivek& Co.!

178 Deathstars

Great band with great hits like Explode, Cyanide, and Blitzkreig

179 Seraphim Shock

Surprised nobody else included these.
