Gothminister – The Other Side (AFM)

Gothminister – The Other Side (AFM)

The term “gothic” seems to have a particular meaning in Germany. My experience of rummaging around record stores there is that everything, including Opeth, counts as gothic. From the self-explanatory “Gothic Electronic Anthems” (2003) onwards, Gothminister have been pumping out dark electro metal. This one.. Read More
Mekigah - Autexousious (Aesthetic Death)

Mekigah – Autexousious (Aesthetic Death)

There’s some solid stuff coming out on label Aesthetic Death whether it’s the sludgy, blackened doom of Ketch or the equally highly recommended quirky black metal of Lashblood. Indeed, it’s a label that’s becoming known for its appreciation of the avant-garde. That in itself is.. Read More
Chelsea Wolfe – Hiss Spun (Sargent House)

Chelsea Wolfe – Hiss Spun (Sargent House)

There’s something about Chelsea. Something strange, sinister and utterly beguiling, something that makes you easily envisage her singing a dark ode at the end scenes in David Lynch’s Twin Peaks bar room. It’s a place where her haunting tones would fit right in but it.. Read More
The Dark Red Seed – Stands with Death (Prophecy Productions)

The Dark Red Seed – Stands with Death (Prophecy Productions)

Two of King Dude’s session musicians, Tosten Larson and Shawn Fleming, have joined forces to form The Dark Red Seed, an exploration of gothic acoustic folk music. Their three-song EP ‘Stands with Death’ is reminiscent of Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds’ ‘The Boatman’s Call’,.. Read More
Black Mare – Death Magick Mother (Magic Bullet)

Black Mare – Death Magick Mother (Magic Bullet)

Ides of Gemini’s Sera Timms takes her musical output from that of the voluminous and co-created to the hypnotic solo dissonance of Black Mare. ‘Death Magick Mother’ is the second album of this project, mixed by Drab Majesty’s Andrew Clinco. Whereas debut album ‘Field of.. Read More
Mindkult – Lucifer’s Dream (Transcending Obscurity)

Mindkult – Lucifer’s Dream (Transcending Obscurity)

“Doom, Stoner and Shoegaze” are the descriptions that accompany this album. I would add in a healthy dose of Garage Rock and Goth too. There is a distinct air of fuzz about the guitars that underpin this album with a delightful swish of a black.. Read More
Lisa Cuthbert – Hextapes (Iron Bonehead)

Lisa Cuthbert – Hextapes (Iron Bonehead)

This album arrived and immediately induced a sense of slight shame that I didn’t know the name Lisa Cuthbert, as she has worked with an extraordinarily wide range of bands from Marillion through The Sisters Of Mercy to Draconian and Ulver. Still here we are.. Read More
Atriarch – Dead As Truth (Relapse)

Atriarch – Dead As Truth (Relapse)

Once I upgraded my musical reading from Smash Hits to N.M.E, Melody Maker and Sounds I remember well the tag of most miserable band in the world being thrown around a lot. It normally went in the direction of The Smiths, Joy Division and The.. Read More
The Medea Project – S/T (S/R)

The Medea Project – S/T (S/R)

Not to be confused with the theatrical group for incarcerated women, that’s not to be said that their namesake, The Medea Project as a band, do not show a certain thespian flair. Having been around for some time with many members through their stage doors.. Read More
Interview - Bloody Hammers

Interview – Bloody Hammers

They’re creepy and they’re kooky mysterious and spooky. Nope let’s not go down that route even if their world is a little on the strange and horrific side. Bloody Hammers consist of Anders Magna and Devallia who pass their time making dark, gothic doom music,.. Read More
Bloody Hammers – The Horrific Case Of Bloody Hammers (Napalm)

Bloody Hammers – The Horrific Case Of Bloody Hammers (Napalm)

Kooky Halloween ghouls Anders Manga and Devallia are back after only just hitting us over the head with their last descent into the tool shed ‘Lovely Sort Of Death.’ They certainly caught us off guard with that one too having shifted slightly from the Munster.. Read More
The Black Capes – All These Monsters (Dark Tunes)

The Black Capes – All These Monsters (Dark Tunes)

I used to DJ a few goth clubs back in the day, most of them had a strict “No Metal” policy, so it was always fun to see what I could get away with on the playlists in the midst of all the drama and.. Read More
