Goth bands that have a similar sound to Buck-tick?

Hello! I'm kind of new to goth music, and my experience so far has been limited to goth-ish visual kei artists such as Közi or Buck-Tick around the 90s, but I really love their sound and want to find more. I have checked out some of the bands listed on the sidebar on this subreddit, but I'm having trouble pinning down the soft/dark yet somewhat rock-adjacent sound that I love about the aforementioned bands. If anyone has recommendations, I would love to receive them!

Must be goth. Read the wiki/FAQ if you're unsure.

One band per letter. Any attempt to nominate a band already featured will be ignored.

Doesn't have to be an album, can be an EP.

Please post only one album per comment. (It's easier to keep track of) You can comment multiple times, though.

Each round ends after 24 hours. (Inconsistent schedule, it'll probably be even more inconsistent since I'm sick right now.)

Best/favourite album that starts with O?

Political history of the goth subculture?

To start things off, I‘d like to explain my reasoning behind this post. I have considered myself to be goth for about a year now (give or take). In this time I‘ve only learned about the musical history of the subculture, which is by far the most important it seems. The partition from mainstream punk to the opening of the Batcave (which isn‘t all too far apart time-wise iirc.) Have I missed an important political event or movement?

Recently I’ve been indulging in more goth tiktok content, which i‘ve been steering clear of because well.. tiktok can be cruel and misleading. I came across a video talking about how the musical history is important, however the political side and the ideals are more important. Ideals? Politics? Have I missed something? (i possibly might have, as one cant know everything)

In this persons comments I proceeded to inform them about how the music is the core and main part of the subculture. I asked them in a relatively friendly manner if they could tell me about the political side of the subculture because I had assumed the subculture to be mainly music focused unlike the Punk culture which it originated from.

They seemed to have taken my comment as a sort of attack or rant which wasn’t my intention at all. I apologized and wanted to make sure that they knew I was genuinely asking a question in hopes to learn more. They ended up blocking me before I could properly get my point across.

I apologize if this is a hard and/or long read. This topic has been bothering me because I genuinely didn‘t want to offend this person. I hope somebody here could tell me about the more political side of the goth subculture.

Newer generations of goth guitarists playing in the style of W.Hussey / Porl king?

A question, thats been lingering for a awhile, popped up in my head here …

Any recommendations on newer generations of really good gothic rock guitarists / guitar playing in the style of Marx/Hussey/King etc?

To be more specific: What I’m looking for is not more too simple copies of Wayne Hussey or the 2020s school of minimalism and so on. I’m looking for players like Porl King (when Rosetta Stone was still active) and Mark Wheeler (Who played on Irony of fate with Love like blood ages ago before they turned into a different more metal influenced act) who in my opinion took the style of playing into new directions but still stood with both feet in Gothic rock if you know what I mean.

Many of the newer bands I’ve come across are aiming for something more simple and minimalistic: Say, Molchat Doma – they’re great but they’re a bit of a different thing to me than my fave guitar goth acts (who all seems to have popped up in the 80s and 90s) She passed away is well produced and has good intense energy and so on but the guitars are nowhere near what Porl King did and Wayne Hussey still does (at least live)

Are there any new players/bands that I have missed? Any recommendations?

PS: I am very impressed by some of Pre-Occupations material by the way, I can hear clearly they've been through the LedZep, Hussey/Marx/S.Kilbey/Swans/fieldsofthe/etc thing but they doesn't count as a gothic rock band DS
