    v How is "goth metal" different from gothIC metal? It's not exactly a well-kept secret that the bands you (and seemingly everyone else in this shoutbox) are referring to are all here almost exclusively because of their imagery and their lyrics and not due to any actual connecting to gothic metal - so we can probably stop complaining about it. It's clearly not making a difference.

    This genre has to be one of the more controversial genres in metal. Trying to separate the true gothic metal bands from the goth metal bands ( if goth metal is an actual genre). i started to notice most of the bands like Nightwish, Lacuna Coil, Within Temptation, Evanescence, Epica and HIM are considered by many to be apart of the gothic metal genre even though most say their music is either rock or some other metal yet none have been more vocal about this than the bands I have mentioned. Yet since they wear black clothing, have somewhat dark atmosphere and dark lyrics they apparently fall into this genre.

    Lacuna Coil is a Gothic metal band. After Comalies Lacuna Coil made an incursion into alternative metal, but always keeping a gothic feeling. Nightwish is certainly a Symphonic metal band, not gothic. Within Temptation with just one album in the genre (Enter) should not appear in the list. Where is Tristania or even The Gathering (Mandylion is a Masterpiece)?

    Lacuna Coil is gothic band, but there are too many symphonic metal bands, which haven't anything similar to gothic and they are tagged as "gothic".. just because of woman on front vocals? Don't know, why. But it's irritating for "trv" goth listener.
