Quoted from PW79:

NIN & Manson, listened to em a lot for sure.
The shit has not aged well tho. Or maybe I'm just 40.

No sir, NIN is just as good as it ever was, Manson I can agree with you on. Need to mention Front 242 and Front line Assembly

OK, last thing I’ll post (at least for tonight ), but the path of musical darkness this thread has sent me on this evening has been really cathartic!

I’ll leave you on an achingly low note:

Discovered this obscure band from the early/mid 80s recently "Burning skies of elysium", they were from a town (Horley) which was near where the Cure were from originally (Crawley).

Vocals sound like Ian Astbury & the music the Cure. Brilliant album, I don't know how this band remained virtually unknown.

More on them...

I’m in, The Cure is my favorite and still worth catching in concert if you can. It sounds like you are still buying CD’s which is great, but really slows down the new music train. I got a Spotify Premium subscription this fall and it really opened the door for new bands, and new songs of old bands. Other favorites are Love and Rockets, Marcy Playground, Mazzy Star, Robyn Hitchcock, Pale Waves, Jesus and Mary Chain.....

#56 1 year ago

Love all these bands but maybe represent some of the goth dance (darkwave) music as well.

Icon of Coil
Covenant
VNV Nation
Wolfshiem
Project Pitchfork
Depeche Mode
Blutengel
She want revenge
Wumpscut
Diorama
Seabound
Rotersand

Gotta go old school didnt see anyone even mention siouxsie and the banshees

Quoted from rai:

just noticed your screen name Joy Division

What should not be forgotten is New Order - Ceremony, one of the greatest darkest albums ever made. Real good DVD Fac 316 from that time also.
Why do all the good bands get happy and suck?

#58 1 year ago

Now's a good a time as any.

Or post 30

Newer stuff, a band always shows up for a hot minute. Cold Cave first album was great a a handful of fine singles... Never trusted the guy though.

Oops.

Then I give you Gidget Goes To Hell.

I hear what you’re saying about new songs but I’m one who may not like something on a fist listen and I need to listen to something dozens of times to get a feel. Plus album composition does something that you can’t get from the radio or greatest hits album.

I’m old enough to have grown up with records recall listening to Ziggy Stardust and lots of the Black Sabbath albums front to back not to mention Pink Floyd, Doors, Stones etc.

#64 1 year ago

Have to say Black Sabbath was one of the first that comes to my mind of dark gothic music.

If you like Mazzy Star you might also like Tess Parks; great neo-psych vibe here (thanks in part to Anton Newcombe):

Left metal in late 80s and branched into Butthole Surfers, The Melvins, Ministry, Revolting Cocks, NIN, Nirvana, Mudhoney, Tad, etc...

Ministry at lalapoluza 92 Vancouver was easily top 5 shows I've seen.

#67 1 year ago

I'm a Numanoid. Saw him in concert this past September. The Fall is my favorite track.

#68 1 year ago

Saw Ministry last week. Good show. Al was kinda grumpy and forced the audience to listen to his entire new album before getting to "the hits" and then condescendingly said we were all gonna get some "dog treats for being good" at the end with "90s nostalgia." His wig looked amazing!

I really don't know their stuff so I didn't give a shit, kinda all sounded the same to me. The crowd was kind of thirsty for the hits though.

So that's what you are gonna get if you go see them. Plus lots of pictures of trump morphing into HItler.

Enjoy!

#69 1 year ago

Wtf grunge added to the title? I'M OUT!!!

Ministry is just pure speedy shit metal these days, couldn't tell a lick of diff'rence in any song since Rio grande. Too many pieces missing from the beginning line up

Gary Numan has been making great music for decades now. The Fall is a fantastic track and probably my fave too. Fave overall album is probably Strange Charm that's got alot of great 80s synth in it and really dig the first track, My Breathing.

I saw them in march and it was amazing. Al was fired up and they played a good assortment of songs. The opening band on the other hand should be ashamed of what they do. So very bad.

Any Cocteau Twins fans here? Samhain was Deathrock at its best.

Sorry, I take it back. I was thinking of the darker stuff like Alice in Chains.

#78 1 year ago

This thread can also use some And One.

#79 1 year ago

One of Stan Ridgway from Wall of Voodoos side projects.

#80 1 year ago

If you like the Sisters of Mercy, Andrew Eldritche's side project "Sisterhood" - gift album is pretty good if you haven't heard it.

Suburban Lawns was a fun local band that wasn't around too long. They kind of reminded me of Siouxsie and the Banshees which is why I threw it up there.

They opened for them at a concert I went to. The skinny dude with the dark hair in the Gidget Goes to Hell video was the head DJ and program director at KNAC radio and we partied with him at the gig. That Alfa Romeo in the video was his and he asked me how to keep it running. lol. He was cool.

I was just listening to Janitor, (the other clip with the captions) great song, Su Tissue’s hair, vocal style, lyrics & her look is brilliant. I can see some similarities to Siouxsie & the banchees too.

Has got me wondering what happened to her as others are. Any idea?

#83 1 year ago

They did perform Janitor on SNL once I believe. Other 'hits' of theirs were Flying Saucer Safari , Green Eyes, and Flavor Crystals.

Yeah, Su Tissue was a babe! Looking back I feel lucky I went to so many of these gigs, but it's just something we did. Small clubs, cheap tickets, and local made it easy.

I never kept track once the scene started to go away, but again wiki seems to have some info on them.

#84 1 year ago

I did however find out what happened to my old DJ buddy that used to let me come in the station and pick records on occasion.

Looks like he's in New York now. Once again, google is our friend.

Linkedin not so much....I don't know why I didn't need to log in the first time.

Quoted from Luckydogg420:

Do any of you guys like tool?

Of course. Danny Carey is a phenomenal fuckin drummer. Maynard’s a nutty dude...A Perfect Circle has a bunch of good ones too. The Noose for one.

No Remorse for the Dead from LOG is another good one. The lyrics tend to get redundant but the guitar, drums and composition is tight as hell.

Quoted from VectorGamer:

Yup, another Numanoid here as well. Have all his CD's going back to Exile except for the two remixes in 2008 & 2009.
Never had the chance to see him in concert, not many good concerts in Omaha.
His "My name is ruin" video is pretty good. That's his daughter performing in the video if I remember correctly.

#87 1 year ago

Another one from Siouxsie. Big hit back in the day.

#88 1 year ago

The Damned - Phantasmagoria. The whole album is great.

#89 1 year ago

The Cure BTW, just got voted in for the 2019 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees.

Quoted from TheLaw:

I guess they have a bit better of chnace this year than last but they'll get screwed over.

Ha...I thought you just meant they were nominated again...duh. Good for them...wonder whom they will pick to induct them?

Quoted from Xenon75:

Other great Industrial bands:
KMFDM
PIG
SKOLD
Gravity Kills
Sister Machine Gun
My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult
Genitorturers
Drown
En Esch
Slick Idiot
Combichrist
Rammstein
Death Ride 69
How to Destroy Angels
Hate Dept.
Motionless In White
Orgy

+
Front 242, Front Line Assembly and Click Click....(in my opinion) the top 3 Industrial bands in the early days.

#93 1 year ago

I bought a good supply of CDs but haven’t listened to all yet. I really like The Cure Disintegration album. I realize it’s not in the genre but also bought Alice In Chains ‘Dirt’ which is supposed to be darker grunge. It’s ok but I’m not really as much of a fan of that type as it seems the actual old goth music (dark wave etc.)

Was reading about goth apparently music may have first been describe as gothic was The Doors (such as he song ‘the end’ ‘Strange days’ etc).

#94 1 year ago

Disintegration is a monster album of course...it is very one note though, not that that's a bad thing. Kiss Me might actually have overall more good songs but it's a little all over the place... And it's a double.

How about Pornography?

Quoted from rai:

Pornography is solid & of course universally loved but personally I'd take Faith over it; Funeral Party is a top 5 Cure song.

#97 1 year ago

Ahhh... so happy to have stumbled upon this thread!!! Love the old industrial scene, my favs are Front 242 early Ministry and Nitzerebb. Goth- Sisters of Mercy and Bauhaus.

If you are in the US, check out the annual Cold Waves festival in Chicago. This year was also in NYC and LA, but not sure if they are going outside of Chicago for next year. In the UK check out the annual Infest festival.

Honestly, a lot of the 'new' industrial music is a bit guitar/metal heavy for me, I like the 80s/early 90s stuff along with 'alternative music' that may not necessarily fall into Industrial: ie The Cure, Depeche Mode, OMD, PIL, Joy Division, New Order, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Jane's Addiction, Tones on Tail, Foetus, Thrill Kill Cult, Recoil, Rage against the machine, Porno for pyros, NIN and The Damned.

Some punk (not hard core): Early Stranglers, Ramones, Sex Pistols, Dead Kennedy's, Dead Milkman, The Damned, The Clash, The Cramps, Rancid, SNFU.

Also into other styles of music, but for the past 10 years been really into Trip-hop: Massive Attack, Tricky, and Portishead.

#98 1 year ago

Going to be checking out a lot of bands I see posted here I haven't heard of before, very excited!!
