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.
My release in pain. enough said. I don't even really listen to Gothic metal but this song I still found extremely intriguing. Edgar Allen Poe
Their style has gone from doom roots to a more mainstream gothic style but it's great all the way through. - dragonzrmetal
Maybe Gothic in a general sense but many cross-over fans I'm sure
Real finish goth metal sound and lyrics
Why aren't they on here? Please vote for the most talented band of all time guys! Opeth's vocals and lyrics have a defined gothic vibe still they have much better song composer than most of the bands on here
To the person who just called The Sisters of Mercy emo... I hope you're deliberately trying piss people off, otherwise you're one of the most idiotic poseurs I've ever came across.
This is gothic band
The sisters of mercy is THE gothic band. The real gothfathers. Listen to lucretia my reflection and you'll know what I'm talking about...

Are you kidding me, #49? This band hasn't received the recognition or appreciation they deserve
I like a lot of the bands here:evanescence, him, cradle of filth, dimmu borgir, Marilyn manson, also nightwish, darkseed, with temptation, lacuna coil but the first half aren't actually Gothic, while the second half is more symphonic or alternative. Love them all but I feel (excluding darkseed above) that Mandragora scream is gothic and metal and nothing else.
All metal seems disgraceful compared to them. The songs are purely self-opinions that affect the music in very emotional ways. You can never get enough, their music is of little amounts but magnificent in all ways that I can understand. Great vocals, back round music blasts with proper non-pop standards. No rap, slow beat, EMOTIONAL AS HELL!
