I remember one of the first "goth" bands I heard was the 69 Eyes.
I still really love some of their music.
I was just wondering what are some of your favorite Goth bands or bands than have darker sounding music, and your favorite songs by them?
Malice Mizer - Baroque, Shiroi , Gardenia,
Moi Dix Mois - Nocturnal Romance, La dix Croix
Lacroix Despheres - Fiore
The Cure - Wrong number, lullaby
Siouxie and The Banshes - Spellbound, Peek a boo
D - Gekka no Yasoukyoku (Malice Mizer Cover)
ive got mad love for the asian VK bands

theyre really nice
like classy tight vests that give wonderful posture and a bit of "pop" if you know what i mean lol
Hmmmm...if I think back I think the first goth/darkwave song I ever heard was "Leave Me Alone" by The Cruxshadows, which was quickly followed by "Dead Girls" by Voltaire (who I still adore, despite how lulzy his stuff since Ooky Spooky has been though I have high hopes for "Longest Album title ever with Unicorns*). Cruxshadows kinda lost me after Ethernaut.
Right now, I'm in this really weird period where I don't really have a favorite band. I follow some of the bands I've liked since I was but a squeak of a babybat (the aforementioned Voltaire, Tapping the Vein, The Cure, Rasputina) but I've also been listening and enjoying a lot of dark cabaret stuff, everything in the 'billy family, deathrock and more old school bands, a dash of industrial/more electronic stuff, trip hop and shoegaazer and even a bit of nu-goth, drag, whatever you wanna call it (ex. Zola Jesus, O'Children, Crystal Castles maybe fits here, Salem, The XX, those band that are just symbols and such).
I've been going out to local clubs/nights more often and it's exposing me to some new bands and old favorites lately and it's kind of shaking my ear up.
*Not actual name of album but it is really long and silly
The first Goth bands I loved were Switchblade Symphony, Diva Destruction, Collide, The 69 Eyes, and London After Midnight.
Most of the first Goth artists I discovered by buying compilations from Hot Topic (you know...when they were still cool).
Except for The 69 Eyes... I was trying to download a porn movie and one of their videos showed up in the search. I was like, "69 Eyes? WTF kinda weird porno is that?!" So I investigated and became a fan of their music.
I mostly listen to Industrial and Metal know, but those mentioned above are some of the only Goth bands I still listen to... Their music is just so damn beautiful and awesome.
I absolutely =love= Lacuna Coil and credit them for launching me on my own music career. I front a melodic goth metal band along the same lines here in Seattle called Metamorphia.
My favorite bands are probably pretty predictable: Lacuna Coil, Epica, Nightwish (past and present), Krypteria, Eyes of Eden, 69 Eyes, Flowing Tears, Within Temptation, and ummm Paramore (ok you can cringe I just did too!)
Love Lacuna Coil's new album too, they're returning to their more dark gothic metal sound (thank darkness!)
