Buy the Latest Gothic Music Band T
Today, Gothic music combines all of these virtues but again it's hard to define since their are many variants from soft Indie style bands to the aggression of heavy metal.
The High Priest of Goth Rock, or even Shock Goth Rock if you like, is undoubtedly Marilyn Manson.
The ultimate shock rocker in the long and gory tradition of baby impalersimpalers Jets jerseys cheap
like Alice Cooper but put to greater extremes.
For a true taste of the grotesque his merchandise will certainly raise a few eyebrows on the stiffest of features and is guaranteed to disturb the earnest etiquette of polite company.
But he has produced great music too with 'Beautiful People', 'Dope Show' ' Disposable Teens', 'The Fight Song' and also interesting covers like 'Tainted Love' and the Eurythmics' 'Sweet Dreams'. Unsurprisingly his shows are always entertaining for their colourful theatre and shock value as well as the music
It's still only Rock n' Roll and it's still rebellious as ever whatever the shade.
But Goth music and culture has spawned many different mutations. It crosses many genres and generations and Bauhaus have their place high in the pantheon. They are still popular today as a classic cult band of Goth Rock epitomised by songs like 'Bela Lugosi is Dead', 'She's in Parties' and their hit cover of Bowie's 'Ziggy Stardust' in 1982.
One of the most enthralling diversions of modern Goth Rock has been the advent of more female singers. What is especially magical is the contrast between the angelic almost operatic female leads with the crunching metal guitar of the predominantly male musicians.
From the USA came Amy Lee of Evanescence, from Holland Sharon den Adel leading Within Temptation and there is also the Italian beauty Cristina Scabbia of Lacuna Coil. All three are major exponents of this romantic form of Goth.
But Finland's Nightwish are arguably its most evocative exponents. This type of classy metal with the feminine touch has made Goth Music more accessible and opened it up to a much wider audience.
Trent Reznor's genius is stamped over his personal project that is Nine Inch Nails who have remained a great attraction for many years. With songs like 'Head Like a Hole', 'Closer' and 'Hurt' the last of which was memorably covered by Johnny Cash.
The simple and symmetrical 'NIN' logo is an understated classic on their clothing souvenirs. Dark lyrics and moody Electro Rock tunes markmark cheap authentic Jets jerseys
them out from the crowd and their cult status endures.
Perhaps even darker are the English band My Dying Bride who, as the name suggests, are truly a melancholic force but steeped in tragic romance. Their compatriots Paradise Lost have more of an upbeat metal edge but can also offer some doom laden music through the speakers in a shuttered room. They are a well regarded band for their epic sound and powerful music.
A more melodic and popular act from Finland are HIM previously called His Infernal Majesty with frontman Ville Vallo providing a velvet overlay on vocals. They consequently attract a large female following.
Europe has been a mainstay for decades in the Goth Rock genre and Switzerland's Celtic Frost have been a tremendous influence on extreme metal bands since their formation in 1984.
Fans and critics alike may quibble about what Goth music actually isis cheap Jets jerseys
and what it's not. Bands like The Cult and The Cure inhabit this grey area but they nevertheless attract a large Goth following.
The former are justly famous for their 1985 signature tune 'She Sells Sanctuary' as well as 'Lil' Devil', 'Fire Woman' and 'Sweet Soul Sister'.
The latter, on the other hand, are always associated by the easily recognisable figure or even silhouette of leading man Robert Smith. They have produced many marvellous tunes such as 'The Lovecats', 'A Forest', 'Boy's Don't Cry', 'Lovesong' and 'Friday I'm in Love'.
Even Punk and New Wave music are caught up in the ever expanding net that defines the parameters of Goth music.
Bands like Echo and the Bunnymen and Souxsie and the Banshees straddled thethe cheap Jets jerseys china
gap between Goth and Punk from the late 1970's onwards.
As did Joy Division who, due to the suicide of singer Ian CurtisCurtis wholesale cheap Jets jerseys china
in 1980, had a brief but remarkable spell of success. The brooding atmosphere of their music combined with the tragic and short life of Curtis has ensured their classic status ever since.
Their famous song 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' has become one of the most famous anthems in the history of alternative rock music.
The music of New Model Army is endowed with poetic lyrics reflecting political and humanitarian themes. Strictly regarded as a group from the Punk and New Wave collection of English scene of the 1980's they however appeal to a Goth following.
Rob Zombie may not strike many as belonging to the Goth community but again like other artists he has a Goth following.
His unique brand of industrial metal is hypnotic and overpowering. He is still popular with the congregation and the image is enhanced by his directorship of blood and gore Horror movies such as 'House of a Thousand Corpses' and his remake of 'Halloween' in 27.
The same applies to Slipknot who have consumed the younger generation of hoodies and mosh pit 'maggots' as singer Corey Taylor fiendishly labels them at their incredible concerts. Their outlandish masks and viseceral lyrics have ranked them along Marilyn Manson for enjoying a mainstream shock value.
