The Best Gothic Metal Albums

Note 1: This list will take time before it gets a definitive form (or it might take forever if good gothic metal albums will be released in the future).

Note 2: Another important feature is that this list will not take into consideration the Metalstorm way of labeling what is gothic metal and what isn't. Some albums have gothic metal elements yet they are not categorized as gothic metal. No hard feelings. I am also accepting suggestions as I might slip a couple of albums in the process.

1. Estatic Fear - A Sombre Dance
2. Tiamat - Wildhoney
3. The Sins Of Thy Beloved - Lake Of Sorrow
4. Tristania - Widow's Weeds
5. Theatre Of Tragedy - Velvet Darkness They Fear

4. Acid King - Busse Woods

InnerDoom

The wide spectrum of sounds expressed through the sub-genre of Doom Metal often gets overshadowed by the somehow inaccessible slowness that is in its nature and so DM doesn't get the recognition it deserves for being, in my opinion, one of the most flexible subgenres of Metal ... Because of that, Doom Metal has remained among my favorite genres of music since the time I was introduced to it through My Dying Bride's "Turn Loose the Swans".

1. Esoteric - The Maniacal Vale
2. Saturnus - Martyre
3. Lacrimas Profundere - Memorandum
4. My Dying Bride - Turn Loose The Swans
5. Process Of Guilt - Erosion

The Best "(Gothic) Beauty And The Beast" Albums

Here's a list of mostly Gothic Metal albums, exclusively of the "Beauty and the Beast" type (which refers to clean "angelic" female vocals contrasted with male growls/screams). I made this list because it's one of my all-time favourite subgenres of which I own "a lot" of great albums. Since there are several lists of the best Gothic Metal albums on MS, I didn't feel like creating a similar one, but rather an exclusive list solely comprised of this subgenre. It could be useful as a guide for people who are searching for these kinds of albums, though I'm very open to suggestions since I obviously haven't heard all great albums yet. Lastly, everything on this list is at least worth a 7.5/10 rating and I only add a maximum of 2 albums per band.

1. Tristania - Widow's Weeds
2. The Sins Of Thy Beloved - Lake Of Sorrow
3. Draconian - Where Lovers Mourn
4. Epica - The Phantom Agony
5. Theatre Of Tragedy - Velvet Darkness They Fear
