In this thread we discuss GOTH, INDUSTRIAL, DARK NEW WAVE/POST-PUNK, and WITCH HOUSE
/darkshit/ thread general
Been re-listening to a lot of EBM/Futurepop lately like Assemblage 23, VNV Nation, And One, Covenant etc as well as some of the harsher, weirder industrial like yelworC, 3Teeth, Youth Code and Skinny Puppy
I don't get how it's considered a "dead" genre or how the new stuff is thought of as "revival". I own a Skinny Puppy shirt and one of the most common comments I get on it is "are Skinny Puppy even still around?" (>tfw they recorded a new album just last year)
Idgaf about their message. I have been listening to shit loads of death in june lately. It's very consistent in quality and it's actually pretty good music. I'm not one to pay attention to lyrics anyways.
I really like dark music but I can't get into much witch house besides AAIMON (which is probably more accessible than the majority of witch house artists) and Salem. What else would you all recommend in the genre?
This is a lot of industrial I'm going to have to check out. I have been listening to test dept.'s first album and their live album Ecstacy Under Duress, a shit load of einsturzende neubauten, SPK, and skinny puppy. I want to get into Front Line Assembly. I generally prefer the metallic percussion based industrial but skinny puppy is an exception.
Ironically it was the cheesy, fantastical, over the top image of artists like The Birthday Massacre, Ayria and The Cruxshadows that infected my system with the Gothic virus
I liked them because they were bombastic and over the top while still having bleak, gloomy elements
I still love all of those artists even if they're considered shit tier or entry level by elitists
I used to listen to a lot of the artists on Dancing Ferret Discs like The Cruxshadows, Ego Likeness, The Last Dance, Corvus Corax and ThouShaltNot etc. Used to dress the part as well, dyed my hair, had piercings, wore a lot of the band merch etc
I sort of fell out of listening to the genre until I found out about ThouShatNot's new incarnation as Seeming. Since then I've gotten heavily into Artoffact Records' other releases and have been really into AAIMON and 3Teeth as well. I've also started to try to subtly dress a bit goth again without trying to look too outlandish or unemployable.
Awesome thread OP.
I need to look more but Ive been listening to a lot of Have a Nice Life lately. I believe they contain elements of several of these genres.
I'm working on my own "Industrial/Post Punk/No Wave" project atm myself.
I enjoy post-punk.
Velocifero has it's moments too. The Lovers and especially Deep Blue are a little masterpieces.
So if haven't listened to Ladytron try Witching Hour and Velocifero as these fits thread's topic the most. Although I still love their other albums but it's more kraftwerkian playful electro-pop or comfy ethereal-core
guys, do you like London After Midnight
before listening to this album I expected some edgy hot topic shit.
But I was wrong. It is a decent darkwave band

Darkshit is a graveyard genre, all the past genres (mainly from the 80s) that have lost in popularity / "died" live on darker and edgier in Goth
[spoiler]i dont like the cure[/spoiler]
Karen needs to come back again
>go to Dublin
>Around the corner of our hostel is the Bono Nightclub
I do enjoy the music, but the singer is so annoying I stopped listening because I always had to think of his >muh veganism! grill is murder! kill all fastfood joints! sputtering.
yeah i guess this describes them
i don't know, it just totally makes me cringe. especially the vocals and the guitars. angsty synthpop is usually great though. i fucking love depeche mode and wolfsheim to death,
you guys hear this? It's my AOTY and it's pretty damn /darkshit/
I like Chibi's vocals and the heavier guitars, but I prefer guitars like that. I'm generally more about gothic metal than goth rock. Wish I could like Type O Negative more than I do though. They sound good, but they seem too extravagant in their songwriting from the little I've heard.
I love Skinny Puppy in spite of the OCCUPY WALL STREET GO VEGAN YOUR PRIVACY IS BEING ERODED FUCK THE MAN FUCK THE ILLUMINATI politics that are even in some of the lyrics.
And NON/Boyd Rice in spite of the HE MAN WOMAN HATER EDGY SOCIAL DARWINISM LOOK AT ME MOMMY I CAN SOUND LIKE A NAZI thing he has going on
So London After Midnight's politics don't really bother me.
I don't follow any of those artists on social media though because I don't want to hear their bullshit opinions.
Thanks for making these threads. They may not always be exactly shitpost free but I get some really nice shit from them.
Lov u all!!! Also what's some cute modern gothy post punk I might not have heard of
What is some stuff similar to this?
I'm down with this shit.
>Red Lorry Yellow Lorry
This is great fucked up on just about anything music.
They've more or less tried to deny/hide their gothic origins after cultivating a "steampunk" image, but elements of it are still there in the more recent releases
They're pretty gimmicky, cheesy and mallgoth but that's kind of why I like them. That and they don't take themselves seriously. Actually fun stuff imo if you're not obsessed with segregating "TRVE" from "poseur"
Feud is one of the most popular bands these days here in ex-Yugoslavia countries. It is even in top 10 in music chart.
I dont know how could people be so ignorant , it is just a Rammstein song translated to Serbian
here is a link
>ridiculous edgy politics
Who cares? I love Black Metal, but that doesn't mean I have to burn churches. I love Sufjan Stevens, but that doesn't mean I have to praise Jesus. I enjoy Fugazi and Minor Threat, but that doesn't mean I have to abstain from drugs, sex and animal-derived products.
>really want to get into neo-folk
>makes me yawn or roll my eyes most of the time
How does this work? If you clearly don't like it musically, why do you want to get into it? Sounds pretty forced and lame imo.
NON reminds me of Death in June for some reason. Probably they were both on "Various - Sacred War".. Sol Invictus is also one of my favorites.
Even though most of it is spoken word I like Boyd's Hatesville.
Some of my favorites are Jack off Jill (an all girl band), Comus (progressive folk band from the 70s), and Rudimentary Peni.
A lot of people like to group Peni in with punk but that mostly applies to Death Church. Peni has a lot of death and insanity weaved in the images and lyrics.
Is there any /darkshit/ as dark as the new black material developed by scientists that absorbs .035% of light?
I never understood why TRUST was considered part of the whole /darkshit/ ("darkwave," "dark synthpop") umbrella
They sound like a more mellow version of Daft Punk
THYX/mind.in.a.box sounds a little similar admittedly but actually has a genuine dark, brooding feel going on
>Last Dance is also underrated as fuck
For a second because of its thread-relevance I thought you were talking about the band The Last Dance
Depends on what you mean by "industrial." That's a pretty broad term that describes several genres that often sound fairly little alike. Industrial Rock was semi-popular in the 90s, the EBM/Futurepop stuff was pretty strong in the 00s, etc.
