Top Ten Best Goth Rock Bands

The Contenders: Page 7

121 Switchblade Symphony

How can Switchblade Symphony be this low?!? You idiots don't know what music is!

So you're saying crappy stuff is only liked by girls?!... Wait that actually kinda makes sense and I'm a girl.

Being a guy, I must say I don't see how anyone can like Switchblade Symphony, maybe it's a girl thing. I do like The Cure, Evanescence, The Sisters of Mercy, The Birthday Massacre, Malaise, Zeigeist, Phantogram, and 2012's With Sympathy by Ministry.

122 Death in June
123 Love Like Blood V 1 Comment
124 Theatres des Vampires

Amazing italian band, the REAL vampirish gothic style.. How it should be.
Just Pure Gothic.

125 Mois dix Mois

It's written Moi Dix Mois, but they're good anyway. I was expecting Malice Mizer though because I feel like M10M is Mana's midlife crisis.

Ah, I love Juka's vocals. Not that I don't like Seth's but Juka was better in my opinion

126 L'Âme Immortelle

Should be higher up the table for her good looks aloan but german bands are racking up the talent in the last 10 years or so I m o

127 Get Scared Get Scared Get Scared is an American gothic metal band from Layton, Utah. Formed in 2008, they released their first EP, Cheap Tricks and Theatrics, in 2009. Another EP, Get Scared, was released in 2010. V 1 Comment
128 Lacrimas Profundere

Best band ever, they should be number one!

129 Specimen

Specimen should not be this low. This band helped expand goth with their music, look, and for opening the Batcave club.

130 Bullet for My Valentine Bullet for My Valentine Bullet for My Valentine are a Welsh metalcore band from Bridgend, formed in 1998 . The band is composed of Matthew Tuck (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Michael Paget (lead guitar, backing vocals), Michael Thomas (drums) and Jamie Mathias (bass guitar). Former members include Nick Crandle and Jason James; more.

They're not higher because they're not goth rock. HAHA

Bullet For My Valentine their ok

Should be over 30 at least

131 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!

138 Delain

Delain is an awesome dutch goth metal band. Great songs, great sound

139 Creature Feature

How is this beautiful band not even on the list? It both has a gothic feel to it while a bit modern, not to mention Curtis's sideburns which could chalange the wolverines. Songs include corpse in my bed, gorey demise, how to serve man, dr. Saw bones, and many many more. also a side project called Rufus rx includes songa such as, ingenious forms of torture, dead air, worlds in between, and many more.
