Post Re: Gothic Metal Request

I guess most of the people would like to see STILLBORN's debut "Necrospirituals" as a doom metal album. However to me it is one of the most pure and also first gothic metal albums ever. Why? They started as a gothic rock group and added Black Sabbath influences to their sound. I can't see much more pure formula that what I would label as gothic metal.

Paradise Lost, Type O Negative, Moonspell. I guess that is where you will find some of the classics.

I totally despise on the idea that people would label these female fronted symphonic & atmospheric metal bands as gothic metal. They had nothing to do with it in the first place. It's the record labels who manipulated people into thinking that they had. Some of the early gothic metal bands started to sell and the labels needed a "tag" to sell their female fronted bands as well. It's a fucking sacrilege.

Doom metal? It doesn't even sound metal to me - batcave/deathrock with metal influences perhaps.

Well, only one thought - absolutely not :D

Never has Nightwish ever been the slightest bit gothic, and never will they be gothic.

THIS is gothic.





I'll have to pop into this thread later and share my two cents on some good, listenable gothic metal.

And now a rarity - gothic metal for adults! Aeternitas "Danse Macabre".

Maybe give a try to The Vision Bleak as well.


Overlooked this previously and randomly came across them yesterday. They are lovely! Apologies for not listening prior lol.

Updates:

- Went overboard with Paradise Lost and now they've become one of my favorite bands.
- Checked out The Vision Bleak and like them.
- Trying to find something from Moonspell that I actually like besides their "Antidote" album, which is the sole Moonspell record i've enjoyed for the last decade.
- Checked out EverEve and enjoy the 2 albums from them I have.
- HIM I have grown to unapologetically enjoy more and more. :p
- The Poisonblack material that comes after their debut album when the Sentenced vocalist took over is pretty crap.
- I've grown to really enjoy a lot of Tiamat material.
- Currently sifting through material from Charon, Darklands, End of Green, Frown, Lucyfire, Mercury Tide, To/Die/For, Tunes of Dawn & The 69 Eyes as well as albums i've neglected from bands I alreayd like in my free time.
- Going to start adding more bands from this thread to the aforementioned dump playlist on my iPod that I randomly sift through. Thank you to anyone who recommended anything, even the guy who recommended Lacuna Coil who i'm more than familiar with (They were very good the 2 times I saw them live).
