Top Ten Best Goth Rock Bands
The Contenders: Page 3
Poisonblack is awesome period. Doesn't matter who the singer is. JP or Ville. I have to mention Him The 69 Eyes & Lacrimas Profundere all should be in the top 5 other bands I really like are Paradise Lost The Rasmus 45 Grave The Damned. Everyone is entitled to there own opinion. This is just mine. Goth Rock Punk Metal Period it's all good. I can't believe my ears with hip hop it's just down right terrible.V 2 Comments
Although not part of the original goth scene, these guys have the essence of proper gothic music, sadly no longer a band, but up there with clan of xymox cruxshadows and spawned bands like tenebre, terminal choice & lucyfire dreadful ARE goth, unlike the symphonic rock bands that claim to be goth
I wish I was at home listening to Swans :(
They never achieved much success, but they definitely had the gothic sound down, it's disgusting to see them so low on this list.V 1 Comment
Need to be higher.
One of the most darkly rockgoth I have heard...Christian death is my absolute favorite and these guys belong right next to Rozz
I had the opportunity to support Nick and the boys of The Faces of Sarah on a few occasions and it was always a delight and a pleasure to watch them play and hear Nick sing... The Faces of Sarah should be higher up the list...
Nicks voice takes Goth to a new level. Fatalistic warning is purely sublime
This band is phenomenal, so different from the rest and the vocalist is just mind blowing
Best rock for me singer is fantastic Nick Schultz.V 4 Comments
The Marble Index (1969), it may not be 100% gothic, but songes like "Evening of Light" and "Roses in the Snow" are gothic in my opinion, so I think she deserves some if of the credit...
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!
Agree with the comments made, seen these in a quite a few gigs, both as a support group & headlining - always a good night. Would be great if they did release a best of album, save me a ticket for the come back tour!
Will have to dig out the old photo albums, I'm sure I have photos somewhere - hehehe had a crush on Gavin for ages... "blush"
Seriously? that pic? LOL
Top stuff! The Last Dance are amazing and deserve to be much higher on this list. Then again I'm sure this list is merely the sum of its parts and whatever the people who fell across this page felt the urge to write about, nominate or upvote.
One of the best with their smashing guitars, epic solos, and vocals that are just really addictive, this band is a true discovery in goth music
Their albums the dying day lights and downhearted are just amazing
'Deep Water' is an awesome and haunting song. 'Rain', 'Gray', 'Ride on Tears, ' and basically most of the album 'Songs For Sinners. 'V 2 Comments
Awesome band. If you haven't heard them yet you are missing out! They are Goth Electronica. The lead singer Chiba's voice will haunt you deep into your soul! If you like them also try Bella Lune
Being Canadian, music wise I have been rather disappointed, and wondering what our country has come down to (Justin Bieber, Nickelback) but when I discovered them my faith had been restored.
They are WAY more goth than Evanescence!
MUST BE HIGHER ON THE LIST!V 4 Comments
Sentenced is a true black rose of black roses, Sentenced is a band that you'll never find again, it showed you true lifes fears nd the pain of living nd staying alive with out the 1 you care 4, whats the point of living if you don't have the 1 thing you love most, to bad this band broke up
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
Just listen to "The Mind Maelstrom"V 1 Comment
78? These are more Goth than My Chemical Romance who are further up on the scale. I usually dislike bands with huge discographies but these were just an exception. Absolutely amazing. Some of my favourite songs are Heaven's Gaze, Nothing, Untrue, Birthday and Sophia.
What are bands like Lacuna Coil, Marilyn Manson and Evanescence doing on here?
Probably my favourite band of the dark scene - I won't call them Gothic rock because their newer stuff is certainly darkwave but I think their older stuff could be classed as it. They have some amazing songs and I've seen them live, met Rogue as well.
I wish people would do some research before they label Evanescence as Goth.
Some of my favorite music.V 2 Comments
