MUSIC

This is a homage to my favorite artists, you can even have a listen to most of them! Feel free to keep checking periodically, as my taste in music may change over time. However, some artists are simply the bee's knees and will stay here for eternity.


A DAY TO REMEMBER
A DAY TO REMEMBER

I think in all honesty, ADTR should reserve it's own spot on here. I've loved this band since middle school, and even almost after highschool I still love them!

They're classified as pop-punk, and have some softer songs, but I really prefer their more un-refined, earlier sound. Take a listen if you want! I would always recommend at least a few songs

these are some of my favorite songs by the band, and I cannot express how much I absolutely love them. Every so often I find different songs that remain my favorite for a while, or go back to different ones from the past.

TWIN TRIBES
TWIN TRIBES

Twin Tribes is a really nice Darkwave band that I have been getting really into as of recent. I have some stuff of theirs on the way, and I am super excited! Some of my favorite songs include Avalon, Fantasmas, along with others. Their album "Ceremony" is my favorite so far, and I am really into their sound! Super cute and dark.

Feel free to listen to some of it below!


DEFTONES
DEFTONES

Deftones, as of 5/22/21, is one of my favorite artists at the moment. I really enjoy their soft sound mixed with hard vocals and background, it's the perfect mix of being "hardcore" without being too much when I want to chill out. I also really enjoy the emotion and range that the vocalists have, and I can find myself listening to different songs for different emotions or feelings I want to exude that day. It's really nice!

My favorite songs are currently Change, Cherry Waves, and Sextape.

ROSETTA STONE
ROSETTA STONE

Rosetta Stone is another one of my favorite bands. They're still active today, you can visit their bandcamp and get some of their music from there. They have that 90's goth sound, of which, I REALLY enjoy. My favorite track is "People" from their album Seems Like Forever. Below you can find their top tracks :>) Please have a listen if you will!

here are a few songs! (hopefully)

SUSPIRIA
SUSPIRIA

Suspiria is a classic Goth Rock band, and I really like their sound. Allegedly a Dancefloor Tragedy always gets me up and moving, and while I haven't listened to all of their songs, I really like them!

SHIELDS
SHIELDS

Shields is absolutely one of my FAVORITE metal bands. They're not together anymore (as of 2017), and I found out about them after the fact of their splitting, but I REALLY love their songs. I may insert a spotify playlist for this one, idk I just love their music on almost all occasions.


sorry that it's off-center, but the song names wouldn't be seen otherwise. Have a fun listen if you want! And here, you can find their band merch.

THE CURE
THE CURE

Although I don't classify the entirety of The Cure's discography as "Goth" music, some of it definitely is. I like The Cure's albums "Disintegration" and "Faith" for the dark and soft sound they have. It's quite nice.

ATTILA
ATTILA

Attila is a nice hardcore (?.. sorry, all of these are just rough drafts at the moment, I will delve into actual genres later on when I refine everything) band, and I'm more of a casual listener rather anything else, which is why they aren't on the 5 star spot. They definitely deserve it, I'm just not a huge fan even though I like their music.



. . .

PHAIDIA
PHAIDIA

I first heard of Phaidia while listening to a deathrock playlist on youtube in order to find new music that I could potentially enjoy, and upon hearing "Dead End Love", I adored their music! I love their sound but aren't entirely lovestruck by them, so they go in this category.



so.. here is a video that shows their music! Sorry for the inconsistent formatting, they are not on Spotify.

THE WITCHING HOUR
THE WITCHING HOUR

The Witching Hour is a gothic band with a few hit songs that I really enjoy :>) I don't have much to say on them since I don't listen often, but if you haven't heard of them I would give them a go!



sorry there's only one song, it can be a bit hard to find their music and there aren't any one-video playlists on their music

OKAME-P
OKAME-P

Okame-P is an artist who mainly works with Hatsune Miku's voicebox, and for a while, unlike other artists who worked with the vocaloid interface, had a more metal sound to their songs. My favorite song currently by them is "Nothing I can't do".

KIKUO
KIKUO

Kikuo is another artist that utilizes the vocaloid interface, and is one of the more well-known songwriters out there. He usually creates songs that have heavy themes, which I appreciate. My favorite songs by him so far are Gomenne Gomenne and . One reason I like his songs is that there is usually a juxtaposition between the lyrics and the feel of the music, as he creates cutesy songs with dark meaning.

MERCIFUL NUNS
MERCIFUL NUNS

i'm not really that into merciful nuns which is why they're in this category, they're good, I just don't listen to them that much! I want to try and get into their music some more, though :>)



FAR CASPIAN - BETWEEN DAYS
FAR CASPIAN - BETWEEN DAYS

This is one of the few EP's that I will listen to full-length over and over again. I cannot seem to get enough of it, although I discovered it about a year ago, I just recently got into it again. This EP reminds me of being a warm lizard on a rock. It is joyful and a little romantic, I appreciate all of its content! Please give this a listen if by description alone you are interested.

MEN I TRUST
MEN I TRUST - ONCLE JAZZ

I really love the soft sound of Men I Trust, and I especially enjoy listening to their album, Oncle Jazz (as pictured here). Their songs are inspirational, I think I resonate most with their band title.

MY DEAD GIRLFRIEND - HADES
MY DEAD GIRLFRIEND - HADES

This album/band is a japanese post-rock/noise-pop style, and I really enjoy it! I don't want to be classified as a weeb or oddly romanticize anything, but I don't know. I really enjoy the sound of this album, especially the guitar paired with the (sometimes) soft vocals. It's the perfect album for when you want to take a break from your other music tastes, while staying true to the fundementals you enjoy (for me, that mostly lies within guitar).

MASS OF FERMENTING DREGS - WORLD IS YOURS
MASS OF FERMENTING DREGS - WORLD IS YOURS

This album COULD be compared to the previous one, a japanese instrumental-based album, but this time with stronger vocals. I am in love. I hope to have more time to listen to this a few more times.
