Alice Moving Under Skies
This is a live video so it isn't that great, sadly, as I am 100% addicted to this song at the moment and listen to it almost constantly. To the point I'm considering getting the song title 'Grit Girl' tattooed on my knuckles (unlikely to actually happen, though). I love the hypnotic beat, especially in the intro! Not enough people have heard of this fantastic band.
This is Arachne's Song, it's so beautiful! I have loved Dyonisis ever since I first heard them...
I'm not even going to describe Hannah Fury's amazing songs in words. Just listen.
It took me forever to choose which Johnny Hollow song to post as a lot of their tracks sound very different from each other! I also recommend Alibi, Boogeyman, Devil's Night (3am remix) and Rasputin. It's great to finally see an official video from this group, mainly because one of their members is the genius artist behind My Pet Skeleton!
Can't hear this song without singing along. I rave about this band continually, I can't express how god damn fantastic they are. LOVE THEM. Incidentally, the singer is either engaged to or has by now already married Lady Amaranth, the incredible Goth model. I know because she told me. When I met her. ^^ Stamp my Goth card now, please.
So Pretentious, Moi? was today's Goth rock fix, now please enjoy something a little... bleepier. This is my current ring tone!
The Birthday Massacre
If you took the blueprint for my ultimate dream song out of my head, you'd probably get this. Can't get enough of TBM.
Incredible voice. Incredible music.
The drumming on this track is incredible beyond words. When I was a Wicca-loving, Halloween-obsessed pre-teen, this song would have been my ANTHEM.
Cute but creepy! Yay!
There are so many more that it pains me to narrow down the list, and I'm trying to post bands I've never posted about before (my favourites being Emilie Autumn, The Cruxshadows, Ashbury Heights, The Birthday Massacre and The Cure) so I've got to be cheeky and say, also check out Cinema Strange, Bella Morte, Voltaire, Covenant, Rhea's Obsession, Corvus Corax, Rasputina and Carfax Abbey. To name but a few.
Even if you have just gotten into Goth music and/or don't like a lot of it, my tastes cover quite a wide spectrum of what can be considered 'Goth' so you may find something on this short list that you are intrigued by. ;-)
Apologies to future readers if any of these videos have died, please go Google these bands!
