  • Tristania (Widows Weeds album) is very good for anyone who likes goth mixed with black metal

  • Love all the songs Andreinne ! I do listen to most of them 🖤🖤🦇

  • Perfect list Great taste. Thanks.

  • Great music. I’ve only ever checked out the 80s and early nineties stuff and definitely industrial being from the Midwest so this is very enlightening

  • I post goth music compilations on my channel, I would be an honor if you would check them out 🙂

  • Based on original influences the list consists of Sisters of Mercy, Mission, Danse Society, In Excelsis, Curve, 1919 and Skeletal Family yet those are not in.

  • Wow, your taste is definitely eclectic. Was good to see some of the old stuff, and plenty I have never heard of. My current favorite goth bands are Sonsombre, Kentucky Vampires, Guillotine Dream, and She Past Away.

  • Love this! Faith and the muse, Suspiria, switchblade symphony and London after midnight are some favourites of mine.

  • Happy to see this taste in music usually most goth youtubers go way more electronic. I don't mind but it's nice hearing people having your taste in music once in awhile.

  • No Type O negative?
    One of the best goth bands in history.

  • Great video and great choices. I like all the bands mentioned. Just missed Cocteau Twins, The Creatures, Love is Colder Than Death, Death in June, Love Spirals Downwards, Autumn's Grey Solace, Dargaard, WeltenBrand, Xmal Deutschland or Nox Arcana … but it's ok.

  • Thank you. This is Very Insightful.

  • Can I add you on Facebook😳?

  • LOL I saw that one of the songs that was uploaded to YouTube from my old band stare had more hits than the others and someone mentioned they were here because of your channel, and I was like cool, wonder what that is? I'm scrolling down and saw my album cover on the thumbnail and about crapped myself, lol. Thanks for including us (and another band I helped start, Gossamer) on this playlist. Happy to know that our stuff reached a few people. I released one more album with a different band called "Faded Sympathy" in 2007?2008? It was a hectic time, lol. A band I didn't see in here that I personally love (and I knew so many of the bands in here already, great taste in music!) is Autumn – they were on Tess Records back in the 90s with This Ascension and Trance To the Sun and Faith and the Muse. That's probably my favorite label from back in the day! I of course loved stuff on Projekt, Cleopatra, and also Bedazzled (They had some great bands like Siddal and also Monica Richards' first band, Strange Boutique, and a couple of more shoegaze bands, The Curtain Society and An April March). Anyway, I've rambled on long enough lol. Just wanted to say thanks, and keep on being awesome!

  • Salutationsz, just discovering thisz & and am comforted. Havent heard much, hope u r healthy &Well🤘

  • yes! I have so many more new options!! Thank you 🙂

  • Absolutely love your favorite picks of goth bands, I also have alot of those same bands, as top favourites as well.

  • I had forgotten about All About Eve that bands great. 😁

  • Came to see if you had anything i hadnt heard and found two new bands to get hold of! Thankyou. Im particularly impressed by your inclusion of Fields of Nephilim who are my all time favourite band. Last exit for the lost is incredible songwriting.that sends shivers down my spine. Love it. I noticed you dont seem to include Type O negative at any point. If you have heard of them but dont like what youve heard can i suggest just one of theyre albums that is completely seperate from theyre usual sound. October rust is probably one of the most hauntingly melodic goth rock albums in my collection & i urge anyone to give it a listen.

  • I love Joy Division so much., also would AFI be considered Goth? I know they're like Punk but they have a some goth influence besides the makeup.

  • Interesting list.  Although DCD's original recording of "Severance" is my favorite, I have to say that Bauhaus did a very impressive cover.  Including Depeche Mode is an interesting choice as well.  As much as I've enjoyed Black Celebration and on, I've personally never considered them to be Goth.  That's just my opinion, though…

  • I didn’t expect to see Shadow Age here! Shadow Age is one of my favorite goth bands right now.

  • No Xmal..?…loved your selection but for me Xmal Deutschland are a classic that id always include

  • 💖💖

  • Bauhaus and the cure for the top two, i grew up on these bands along with a few more, oh no im turning goth

  • Goth this? .. mmmm 🤔

  • Im actually emo n'goth at the same time
    Like both styles and listen to rock n'emo but still here

  • What? Depeche mode is here? Yes😊 no wonder my mom listened to them a bit with my dad

  • Darkwave..coldwave..goth..deathtock..industrial..postpunk..nowave..whatever you wanna call it. But they were merely general categories.

  • I'm familiar with a good chunk of these bands and have been a fan of them for years bit the majority aren't 'goth'. The project releases were more directly representative of that scene or movement. But Dead Can of mercy were NOT.

  • So pleased to see Cantus by Faith and the Muse! One of my all time favourites!

  • Lovely selection thanks for displaying this should allow me to kill time

  • Thank your very much for "Eyes of the nightmare jungle". Shadow Dance is a fantastic song. Missed it for more than twenty years. Greetings from Leipzig !

  • You took the words right out of my mouth I can't get into deathrock, or batcave they sound to empty and have no real depth. Some death rock bands are ok though.

  • My favorites that were not on your list – IKON, and HOUSE OF USHER.

  • Great to see a lot of old skool goth rock on your list. Can I recommend 'The Nephilim' – Fields of The Nephilim, 'First And Last And Always – Sisters of Mercy, 'An Irony of Fate ' – Love Like Blood, 'Buried in Rain' – Opened Paradise and 'Waking the Dead' by NFD.

  • Have you tried Tristania (gothic metal)?Just wondering :p

  • Excellent selection of music. Very impressive. Where are The Sisters of Mercy?


  • Interesting. I am not goth, but I am a music lover. And I have enjoy quite a bit of this type music. Perhaps there's a bit of goth on the inside I didn't know about?

  • What a lovely taste in music! I feel like these kind of videos can help a lot of people discovering new songs and styles they like.

  • Does any goth have any music from an 80' s goth band called Resurrection? They were on Cleopatra Records.

  • thanks i wanted to find some new bands altough i know many here, you have great taste.

  • Love your Absinthe fountain in the back

  • Wow, this is probably the best goth rock bands suggestions video I've seen. I'm very impressed. Simply excellent! Thank you for sharing! Greetings from Bulgaria!

  • Have you tried Lacrimosa? They're quite big in the Latinx goth scenes and I think you may like at least their stuff from the 90s and early 00s, especially because from 1996 onwards they incorporated a lot of classical elements, and Tilo Wolff simply is/was an incredible composer and lyricist (their later stuff is more "eh" at least to me). His voice might turn you off a little bit though, it happens to some people because he can sound very weird and it took me a while to get used to it, but in the album Inferno (imo their best album) he sounds amazing. Other great albums by them are Satura and Elodia.

    Anyway, it's nice to see I'm not the only goth who loves the goth phase of The 69 Eyes! I always feel a bit subconscious when I mention them lol. I was also trying really, really hard to remember the name of the band Elusive because I used to listen to them and I wanted to again, so thank you so much for giving me the name!

  • Brings back memories. I miss hanging Faith/Muse, Last Dance, and Christian death. They definitely had more staying power than my band did. Great music choice.
