Gothics


Goth rock grew out of the bleak post-punk rock of the Cure and Joy Division. As the name implies, goth rock had grand, baroque arrangements performed with gloomy synthesizers and processed guitars. Lyrically, goth was equally dark, featuring a lot of cryptic, morbid poetry. Almost as remarkable as its sound was goth’s image — the bands and the fans usually dressed in black and wore heavy makeup

Primarily, goth rock was a mid-’80s British sensation — it was one of several fringe genres that occupied the space between new wave and alternative. Nevertheless, certain musical elements of goth lingered into the ’90s, even if it didn’t capture the imagination of alternative audiences like it did before.
