    well, certainly not gothic rock but rather gothic metal IMO. They're tagged 'gothic' so I think they fit in here.

    All the darkwave you can eat over here!

    Deine Lakaien and Silke Bischoff are gothic rock enough to cut this list anyway...

    Pick Of The Week

    The Pallbearers - Phantom Pain

    Very interesting, very underrated. American band with rather unusual (or maybe it just seems strange to my European ears?) sound and mesmerizing atmosphere. A bit gothic, a bit psychedelic, perhaps even a bit bluesy... Highly recommended.

    This time it's me who needs the advice. I need some dark, atmospheric and still energetic goth rock. Not to raw and not too smooth. Something similar to Fields of the Nephilim, 13 Candles, Daimonion, Garden of Delight, XIII.století etc. A bit of vampiric or occult imagery would be nice addition :)

    I know quite a lot of the bands so I think I need some more obscure recommendation.
