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.
Very good band! Deserves to be among the first places!V 1 Comment
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!V 1 Comment
I don't listen Gothic much but I did listen deathstars ad evanessence so I think death Star actually deserves to be number 1.

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.
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.
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 am relatively new to this band but they are amazing, there whole sound is so powerful especially with the power behind the lyrics which are clear in songs such as devils night and immaculate Misconception
I like motionless in white - SatansPrincess666V 2 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

Last time I checked Dimmu Borgir was a Symphonic Metal band. They used to be Black Metal however now they only drag influence's from the genre. They are a good band, but they are not gothic metal.
Not gothic. But I do like some of their songs - SatansPrincess666
They are not gothic metal and specially they are absolutely nothing close to black metal or symphonic black metal, never were and will never be, they are just commercial, watered down and overproduced hot topic mallgoth for 11 year old wannabe-goth angsty obese kids with acne-covered faces who just want to piss their parents off.
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!
Great fusion of different style of metal! Andreas has a great voice
I actually really like macbeth - SatansPrincess666
