So uhh.. There wasn't topic for posting stuff on those genres yet, at least not that I found, so I created this.
If there was one already, please move the post to the topic.

Here you should post recs or discuss anything on the goth rock scene and neighbour genres.

By the way, I just found this and it is pretty good

Goth rock and darkwave have always been among my favourite genres, but I'm not going to peer into the depths of the classic old school goth rock bands I enjoy, cause well, I'd have to write an essay. Needless to say, goth rock & darkwave are still very much present and alive, from the latest releases I'd really recommend Angels Of Liberty's EP Touch The Deaemon. What a fine piece of goth rock this is, with the most grandiose hauting atmosphere.

The only thing I know about Batcave is that the name was derived from a now-defunct club in London with the same name. Apparently these guys were particularly associated with it. They sound pretty great. I should explore more.

I love that kind of polluted lo-fi quality in batcave bands. And those crispy vocals fit perfectly for the dirty atmosphere.
I think that kind of vocal also fits industrial metal pretty good. Check Punish Yourself, for instance.
I'd like to hear some batcave with female vocals though. But female vocals like KMFDM's or early Yeah Yeah Yeahs's... Yeah, that would sound sweet. Too bad I never found one

I would like to take my words from the previous post back, as I have the sudden urge to present a well-known neoclassical darkwave music project, that is one of my absolutely favourite music acts: Dead Can Dance.

^Interesting. First song kinda reminds of Artesia.
Funny, I listened to an album by DCD a looong time ago, and I remember it being far more like dark ambient.
Do they change their style on each album or something?

With DCD it's always hard to categorize their style, as they effortlessly flow thorough so many different genres in their music. They've incorporated everything from goth rock, art rock, darkwave, dark ambient, post-punk, folk, etherial wave and I'm sure I've missed something. But one thing is for sure, DCD's music is unique, ethereal and eerie. I daresay Summoning Of The Muse makes it straigh to the list of my all time favourite songs.

For goth rock lovers who don't mind a bit crossover with new wave and modern, sometimes a bit more up-beat approach, I highly recommend to check out The Stompcrash.

Amusingly, in this vein, just found out that The Mission will be playing an Irish pub down the road here in Asuncion, Paraguay in a week or so.

Well, I may be talking to myself in this topic, but nonetheless, God's Own Medicine's latest release is pretty neat.

Aeon Sable will be releasing a new album this autumn and they've shared a track from the album. I'm bloody addicted to it, have high hopes for this album.

I hope this thread grows, I'd love to get into more of this kind of music.
This was Perry Farrell's band before Jane's Addiction, very much worth checking out:

Cool, didn't know about this before. A very darkly song indeed.

I wish this thead would be more active as well, but so far....

I would also recomment Soror Dolorosa, totally awesome band:

I'm not sure which genre is this but it seems pretty close to goth rock
Either way I'm enjoying it

There's a surf/rockab thing going on in this. There are so many French bands doing that stuff nowadays, but this one is okay.

FYI, the lyrics for that first song are mostly "take the bus take the bus, anti-taxi anti-taxi". Very philosophically engaging.

I could live without that info I guess
