Any love for Swans?

I know they're mostly known as a post-rock act nowadays, but in the late eighties to early-to-mid nineties they were pushing out pretty cutting edge Gothic Rock with albums like Children of God, White Light From the Mouth of Infinity, and, of course, The Great Annihilator. The latter actually being one of my gateway albums into Gothic Rock as a whole.

In addition, their new album The Beggar has very gothic undertones beneath it, in fact one of the songs, "Los Angeles: City of Death" is just straight up Gothic Rock. "Ebbing" also has some Ethereal Wave stuff going on and "The Memorious" is again very gothy.

Anyways, what does this sub think of Swans? I don't hear them getting brought up much here.

Best Goth Albums Ever?

I was trying to explain 80s and Goth to a friend; that is not all doom and gloom but often very hectic or claustrophobic. I'm trying to give her 5 out 6 album recommendations of the quintessential 5 or 6 Goth albums. My list so far is:

Virgin Prunes – If I Die I Die Bauhaus – Press the Eject and Give Me the Tape Fields of the Nephilim – Earth Inferno Siouxsie and the Banshees – JuJu (or Hyaena?) Xmal Deutschland – Tocsin Danielle Dax – Inky Bloaters

I'd love to hear other people's top 5 or 6 albums.

New Goth Bands like Mors Syphilitica

I'm looking for bands that I can potentially see live in the future or support that are similar to them. I'm aware of some of the other Ethereal-wave bands that reformed or are still active like MSG. Are there modern bands that have a similar sound?

Is this a red flag?

Okay so this is kind of a random thing to post about, but this is the only place I could think of to post it. One of the guys I've been talking to said he "has a thing for goth girls", should I be worried about him fetishizing me? He's really sweet so I might be overthinking it, but it gave weird vibes.
