    Thanks for posting some Tiamat B.O.B, not heard of them before. I think their changable tracks. Although the first one I listen to just thought it they were going to be a Sisters rip off lol.

    Yes Like, Love like Blood also and Scream Silence, thought the last Scream Silence album was brill.

    Cant believe how busy the forum is now with all kinds of different genres of music.

    I heard even Rick Astley has had a mention (not impressed with that one lol), he gets every where. Certainly doesnt belong here lol :D

    Two great up and coming Gothic Rock bands from........South Africa !!

    THE AWAKENING .....Hailing from Johannesburg,formed 1995 ...this band have become very successful in their homeland with headline festival gigs etc. Now moved to the U.S . THE AWAKENING are fronted by Ashton Nyte who has a real dynamic voice not unlike the late Pete Steele [TYPE O NEGATIVE] at times. Checking out their material over the years their style has been very impressive.
    I bought one of their cds the other year thinking they were new to the Gothic scene...only to recently find out they have done 8 albums !!
    Look out for them !!

    Risen 1997
    Request 98
    Ethereal menace 99
    The fourth seal of zean 2000
    Roadside heretics 2001
    Darker than silence 2004
    Razor burn 2006
    Tales of absolution and obseletion 2009




    ANKST .......are generating interest over here in the U.K and are one of the current favorites on Radio Nightbreed. They are making fine progress , I am hoping they come over to play here"live" soon. ANKST show Fields of the nephilim / Garden of Delight influences

    THE NEFILIM [ THE FIELDS OF NEPHILIM ]

    When singer Carl McCoy fell out with the members of FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM over the musical direction of the band , he briefly formed THE NEFILIM who made one album "Zoon " in 1996 .It was a brave move at the time ,away from the rich gothic mesmerising soundscapes of the earlier Fields of the Nephilim material. The sound was a darker ,heavier sound with elements of death/thrash/industrial. Of course this album had mixed reviews....some Gothic diehards were truly horrified while others like myself were more open minded. I recall seeing the band on the "Zoon" tour and was amused to see the reaction. Goths didnt headbang :heheh:
    McCoy has had his fair share of problems over the years , and revamped THE FIELDS OF NEPHILIM moniker again with the "Mourning sun" album and started touring again :cheers2

    I love Fields of The Nephilim Lou, one of my favourite Fields track is Moonchild for various reasons one being it reminds me of my star sign (see if you can figure that one out lol). There are so many other good tracks though, like Trees come down, Laura, Last Exit for the Lost. I could go on and on and on. Id recommend listeners to pick an album up :D

    They still sound as good today as they did in their heyday!

    Also big :grinthumb to Scream Silence, I quite like Dream Disciples also.

    VIRGIN BLACK ..........Formed 1995 in Adelaide Australia .VIRGIN BLACK are making good progress and are starting to make a name for themselves . Their music is very solemn gothic/doom with black and symphonic influences.It would be easy to compare them with a band they admit to them is a big influence MY DYING BRIDE......but they do have their own style. Excellent. Check them out

    LORD OF THE LOST.........Still fairly new to the Gothic metal scene but already making a good impression. 2 fair albums and various appearances at festivals in their homeland Germany. I was lucky to see LORD OF THE LOST play the MERA LUNA festival a couple of years ago....they were the opening act and I was impressed. :grinthumb

    CREAMING JESUS.........A 90s band with attitude ! Their pioneering music was a mixture of Gothic rock/punk/industrial and thrash metal. Excellent "Live" I can vouch for that...:grinthumb with the added sound of a band with 2 drummers ! Strangely enough they hated the goth tag....and recorded "punk parodies" to songs by The Sisters of Mercy and The Cure
    Made an outstanding album in "Guilt by association"....but soon lost their way and some of their followers with a change of direction in music lacking the aggression and impact of the bands earlier releases. Split up soon after

    Discography Albums .....[ also made numerous 12 inch eps ]

    Too fat to run,too stupid to hide 1990
    Guilt by association 1992
    Chaos for the converted 1994
    End of an error 1994

    I love the first two Theatre of Tragedy albums. "Velvet Darkness They Fear" is a perfect album from start to finish, one that feels like every composition is purposely put in its place. Wonderful all-time great album.
    "Aegis" marked the beginning of the end. When I saw the first music video of that album, I couldn't believe my eyes. I completely blame the change in direction on Liv Kristine Espenaes who was fired way too late. I mean, how can it take two more albums like this crap and two steps further into pop music before you realize that she ruined the band??
    She was truly angelical though which is probably why the guys just followed her lead blindly, can't blame them.

    My favourite song:
