And what exactly is "Katatonia" doing here at 37th position? Katatonia is one of the best metal banda out there. Their songs such as "unfurl" and "for my demons" are a pieces of true art!
Love Katatonia but it isn't really gothic metal. It's it's own genre, it went from death-doom to alternative doom, but has never been gothic.
Once of the best bands in the world, but is strange and no have a only musical genre defined.
I cannot understand why this band hasn't appeared before! One of the best bands in the gothic panorama, much more authentic than Manson or Evanescence. Liv Kristin: the haunting voice from the early and greatest years of Theatre of Tragedy. Thumbs up for them, please!
They are just wonderful!
Very good band! Deserves to be among the first places!
Xandria with Manuela Kraller is awesome!
Charon is a GREAT band few people listen to. If you like Paradise Lost and Lacuna Coil, you'll love them. They are real good. A true Gothic metal band. They aren't posers like evanescence, epica and marilyn manson... -. -
Great skill, meaningful lyrics and catchy melodies. Amazing band, great motivational music.
I don't listen Gothic much but I did listen deathstars ad evanessence so I think death Star actually deserves to be number 1.

Without Anathema, Paradise Lost and My dying bride we won't be here speaking about gothic metal: listen to "The Silent Enigma", "Alternative 4" or "Eternity" albums... Great sounds and atmospheres!
ACTUAL Gothic Metal. Not your whiny hot topic crap (Evanescence and Nightwish, I'm looking at you).
Probably the best modern goth metal band ever. They mix a deathcore-driven angry sound with gothic themes and amazing melodic music. These guys aren't metalcore, they're the definition of modern gothic metal and truly deserve the top spot at this list.
I really like how they've stepped away from the Metalcore scene (thank god). I know a lot of people criticize their newer stuff, but it's definitely better than their old stuff. They've finally found a genre that suits them and, personally, I love it.
There first stuff was utter crap. The Whorrer sounded like pubescent boys on their man-period. But take into account MIW's newer stuff- Specifically Infamous and Reincarnate. Off of Infamous, America is definitely not super heavy- but still an insane track. And compare Reincarnate, City Lights, and Immaculate Misconception- they're all completely different but still sound original and incredible. They're all amazingly talented. Motionless In White IS the definition of Gothic Metal. - StainedGlassEyes
I like motionless in white - SatansPrincess666V 3 Comments
Great songs like "gothic girl" and a couple more. - SatansPrincess666
I just love their recent works
Kamelot - Most awesome band ever, hands down. The composition is exquisite, the execution is perfect both in studio and live, and the whole band really contributes in a meaningful way. Just listen to "Torn" from their new CD, Silverthorn, and tell me they aren't incredible.
KAMELOT IS AWESOME! I don't know how I would live without this band, its literally given me a Reason To Live "that's Ayreon, yeah but the singer Tommy was singing that. So I can say that?! Yep ok thanks"
Amazingly haunting, provokes the same feeling you get if your bride was dying, but also arouses Tolkien type imagery as well
Come on... I mean for cereal My Dying Bride should be top 10 AT LEAST!
Dimmu Borgir isn't goth. Nightwish isn't goth. My dying bride is most certainly goth

There's just something overwhelmingly true, natural and genuine in their minimalistic yet perfect pieces. They don't sound like they're trying too hard, their music is simple and beautiful. Also, seemingly sad and mournful music hides some sort of joy and happiness. If I was to describe what I feel when listening to them in one word, it would definitely be,peace".
I don't consider them "Goth" but a great band nonetheless.
Awesome goth metal band one of the best I have ever heard along with deathstars oh anthema is good but not goth metal
Manson (n)! Sucks!
