  1. Thank you so much! My taste is 2000s rock bands, And I'm trying to get into goth.

    One question, I'm a catholic Christian irl, is there any of these that are anti Christian? (I personally dont listen to anti Christian music)

  2. Los Carniceros del Norte is one of my favorite bands of all time. I Remember they were one of the first goth bands I started listening too as, and I have to admit, I got into this whole "Dark alternative rock" thing because of horror punk xD But I quickly realized that Blitzkid sucks and Deathrock, Post Punk and Goth Rock really satisfiy my need for darkly inclined music. As for typical punk now I'm morw into Hardcore.

  3. Macbeth is a Gothic Rock band that flourished in the 2000s ( they are now Gothic Metal). I don't like the 80' s sound as much. I like the stuff form the last 90's and early 2000's. Do you know any thing the sounds like Switchblade Symphony? Also where I am from ( Seattle, Washington area) we went to hight school in the mountains/farm lands and I DK how it was in the City but goth lingered till 2008 then got picked up by the pop subcultures so we had to up our looks a tad. There were Emos in my school too. They were cool to chill with as well.

  4. Wow, now I feel ignorant because I always say there isn't much relevant goth music from the 2000s… because of your video I know five new bands from that time now – thanks for ending my ignorance! 🙂

    I got into the subculture in the 2000s, too, but had a very wrong idea of what goth is. I listened a lot to Evanescence, HIM, Nightwish etc. and a little bit to 80s goth. To be honest: In the 2000s the only band from your list that I heard of was Bloody Dead And Sexy. I only knew them because they're from Germany just like me and were covered in a German "goth" music magazine.
    Those magazines ("Orkus", "Sonic Seducer", "Zillo") were the sources where we German babybats used to learn about the subculture. But because it was a slow decade for goth those magazines focused more on Gothic Metal, EBM, Aggrotech, Industrial and medieval music. I think these magazines planted a lot of misconceptions about goth in people's heads. I remember that I tried to like Aggrotech for my goth creds which says a lot. Did you make similar experiences in the US in the 2000s? Did you have music magazines like these, too?

  5. Girl…everything about MySpace was better!! Like u said u could add bands & talk to them! Making those pages our own was AMAAAZING!! I miss that!! The music and Pics we could add ughh 😞😢😢😢 love ur YouTube! 👍💜🖤🤟🤟

  6. Isn't Cinema Strange from LA? I m from Montreal and I never heard their name at all. Granted I'm mainly a metalhead, I found a great interest in goth subculture very recently. Love your channel! Videos like these are very helpful for ones like me who want to know more about the subculture/music/etc.


  7. Did you know Anthony from Radio Scarlet (Denver, CO, deathrock band) is in Christina Aguilera's video for 'Beautiful'? I'm friends with them and help out at their goth club night which one of the Tragic Black members attents now that he's in the area. Crazy world.

  8. Cinema Strange did at least two self-published full-length albums and one EP on the old MP3-dot-com site (I have them), before the self-titled release in 2000; that record is mostly re-recordings of selections from previous releases.

  9. Glad to see Plastique Noir on the list, it's good to see them receiving international recognition. I live near them, so I watched many of their shows, They're planning to release new stuff later this year. Your channel is very good, greets from Brazil.

  10. Cool. And I agree about it feeling like slim pickings in the 2000s. I was concerned about the real life scene around 2002 – 2005… idk exactly when but I remember being concerned that the subculture was waning in the quality of music and the quantity of real of goths. But I quite enjoyed bands like The Vanishing from San Francisco.

  11. I remember Myspace Whore Trains lol I was always trying to get added onto them. Back then I was getting into the Goth clothing style, but I hadn't gotten into Goth music yet.
    Also, this is the first time I've heard of these bands and I am LOVING Arts of Erebus.
