I'll drink to that. Sorry I didn't call back. My friend from RI had a car accident. she's ok, broken arm, and bruised up a bit. She's scared because she's never broken a bone before.

I think they're more metal. But they are indeed awesome.

I like Lacuna Coil too.
Does Dead Can Dance count as goth?
I just want more music with men with deep dark voices and cool instruments that wear a lot of black.

Dead Can Dance isn't stereotypically goth, but definitely can count as goth.

You've got your Korn, Def Tones, Him, sorta AFI, Disturbed, and Rammstein (i just don't understand what they're saying). I just scrolled through one of my angry playlists and that's what I got.

There are metal and punk Goth crossover bands, but I prefer the softer rock side of goth music. It's the vocals that do it for me too.

I don't know that I'd classify any of those as goth, really. "Goth" is really such a narrow genre. But the Deftones are awesome and just the sex. [Razz] That song "Change (In the House of Flies)" is just...delicious. HIM are better live than on CD, I think.

Nightwish is good metal band that I think can also be classified as goth. The dream Theater album As I Am has some pretty "goth" chord progression.


Side note: check out "Horse the Band" for absolute crazy. Once you get hooked nothing else will ever push those buttons in you again.

Cradle of Filth (Metal Goth). Yes, Nightwish, Nemesea, and EdenBridge (Though, I would call them an emo goth band). The Cure, Gotterdammerung, Marilyn Manson (yes, I checked before entering this one), Narcissus Pool, Nosferatu, and Type O Negative.

Those are just some of them that I can think of. Although I would still want to classify HIM as goth, but it really isn't worth arguing over. Well, pH would kick my butt anyway.

Well, HIM decided to call themselves "love metal" or whatever the crap. [Razz]

I want to start a polka death metal band. That would be the best genre ever.

I hate to break this to you, pH, but Nattfödd beat you to the punch (Finnish metal band, of course).

--------------

Goth is an outgrowth of post-punk. I'm surprised no one has mentioned the originals here -- Bauhaus, Sisters of Mercy, Southern Death Cult (later just -- The Cult), Siouxsie and the Banshees, the Birthday Party (Nick Cave was in this one), Killing Joke. Then there are lesser-known early bands like Danse Society, the March Violets, Flesh for Lulu.

Most of these are British, of course, as was much of the post-punk movement. Goth arose in response to the modern tribalism* elements floating aroudn the post-punk scene with a reaction against the more dour, politicized aspects of early post-punk. It reclaimed the camp and glam of Bowie mixed with Rocky Horror, old horror flicks (one of Bauhaus's hits was "Bela Lugosi is Dead"), the neo-Victorian fashions of Vivienne Westwood, etc. etc.

Goth is interesting because it actually reclaimed some straight-up rock guitar sounds that the first post-punks had shyed away from. Later it and industrial music intertwined quite a bit as did, as others have mentioned, heavy metal and various non-industrial forms of electronica, and now there are several sub-genres of Goth.

*Believe it our not, although most Americans know Adam Ant as a kitschy New Wave artist, his earlier, post-punk incarnation with Adam and the Antz was a calculated experiment in modern tribalism that influenced quite a bit of the post-punk scene.

That band is so cool. Not sure they qualify as Goth though.

Within Temptation has an awesome song covering Kate Bush's "Running up that Hill".
