Further recommendations based on what I’ve listened to so far?

Hey everyone! I’m back for my third (and last) post asking for recommendations based on what I’ve listened to. After this I’ll keep it more to lurking and my own research and discoveries. Anyway, I’m back and wanna hear from the more experienced listeners what you recommend based on my tastes and what I’ve liked so far in this amazing genre I love exploring so much.

(Just a quick recap for what I have listened to before this new stuff: Vision Video’s 2 albums, Xmal’s 2 albums, Christian Death’s Rozz album, Cure’s 17 Secs, Faith, Pornography, Disintegration, everything Banshees until Tinderbox, 1st two SoM albums, Flat Fields and Burning from the Inside [also Bela Lugosi], Red Velvet Crush, Burning Oil and Futile Combat, Voodoo Church’s EP, and Joy Division’s first 2 albums)

So to start I got most of these bands from the recommendation compilation videos posted by xx_C4TY_xx on YouTube which have been great listens and helpful in pretty quickly introducing more acts to me. From those videos I’ve taken away (and listened to):

Dead Can Dance

Cocteau Twins

Bat Nouveau

Nox Novacula


Other bands I found from those videos, but didn’t listen to bc of long discographies/didn’t know where to start:

Golden Apes

Sort Sol

The last bands I found from C4TY’s compilations that I haven’t taken the time to listen to yet:



Platique Noir

Frank the Baptist

La Fete Triste

Little Nemo

As far as the bands I did listen to I went through DCD’s first 3 albums and 1st EP (loved the self titled album a lot, probably a favorite of mine with Flat Fields, Juju and Voodoo Church’s EP), everything by Cocteau from Garlands to Victorialand, Nouveau’s Metamorphoses, Novacula’s album (also loved that one and excited to see they have an album on the way), and finally Ghosting’s Disguised in Black and Romantic Death albums. I personally liked everything I listened to this go around. The one album I quit halfway through on was Moon and the Melodies; personally wasn’t feeling it a whole lot, it was kinda cool, but not for me.

Like I said up top I come for the final time to make a recommendation post for those 8 previously mentioned bands and anything that may not be goth, but fits comfortably in a goth playlist (one I can think of is Depeche Mode which I do want to listen to at some point). I’m pretty open to a lot, the only thing I haven’t liked much was just the ambience album type. Also my bad if anything I listed isn’t goth/adjacent. I’m getting better at recognizing what does and doesn’t fit goth, but I wouldn’t trust my sole judgment just yet.

Before I end this post I wanna thank the dozen or so more experienced goths that really helped me through this journey of discovering an awesome genre and its many sub genres! I’d be so lost without you correcting me and giving me some fantastic recommendations. Goth has become my favorite genre of music and the people of the subculture are super cool in my (short) experience listening and being here.

My local goth scene has the friendliest people I’ve ever met. Is it normal for people to be this affectionate at goth clubs?

I started going to dark dance nights in my city few months ago. Whenever people of all genders come up to me or I go up to someone to say hi, they typically want to shake my hand or hug. A couple people have gently held onto my hand after shaking it, and it seems normal for people to hold hands or hold onto each other’s shoulders or waists while talking. I’ve even received kisses on the cheek and seen others do it to each other, and it just seems totally normal here. People are very free with complimenting each other on makeup, outfits, etc, and I’ve never received so many compliments in my life.

Some people ask permission before doing any of this, some don’t, but it doesn’t seem to be done with ill intent either way. Outside these club settings, I wouldn’t let anyone get so friendly, but everyone here just seems so chill and happy, I don’t mind it and know I can speak up if I do.

I’m just wondering if this is normal everywhere? I remember someone a long time ago who claimed to be a regular at these things talking about how people at goth clubs weren’t friendly and to just keep to myself lest I give the impression I’m looking to hook up, but I’ve had the opposite experience so far. People even share difficult things they’re going through to strangers, and we all hug and try to reassure each other that things will be okay. There’s also a wonderful overlap between the goths and board gamers in my area, but the goths are more likely to exchange contact info and show up to hangouts than other people I’ve met at game events.

I’ve been slowly collecting patches and finally decided to give it a shot

I had an old pin collection on this vest ages ago, and it was buried in the back of my closet. I figured what the hell, why not?

I’m very much so not done, still have a few things to add, but as a total noob I’m actually pretty proud of myself 🥺

Goth band patches? This is my goth vest (front and back) and I’ve been searching everywhere for more black and white goth patches, including Bandcamp, websites, Etsy, eBay etc. Does anyone know of any bands that are currently selling patches that would go nicely on my vest? I’m trying to fill it up.

I’ve been pronouncing Siouxsie the wrong way

I referred to her as, "Sweezy" instead of "Soo-zee" in front of my friends and they've been making fun of me for like an hour. This fucking sucks

What Nox Novacula song is this, i’ve tried to find the specific one but can’t 💀

I got this clip from a friends Instagram when she went to one of their live performances around 4/21/23. Nox Novacula is a death rock band from Seattle. I know this isn’t a lot to go off of and don’t blame you if you can’t find it cus i’m having even less luck
