Artistes Index

'I have made a heap of all that I have found...'
Nennius, Historia Brittonum (late 8th/early 9th C)

This section intends to be a comprehensive listing of Gothic, Darkwave, Industrial, EBM and Dark Alternative groups and artists, including basic information (if known) on the bands involved, and links to official and unofficial WebSites.  As the above quote from the famous work 'The History of the British' by the Welsh monk Nennius suggests, I am not concerned here with offering my opinion on the groups involved, but merely giving some information about them. Where there are comparisons with other artistes I have gathered these comparisons from various (other) sources.

A note on genres.
There don't seem to be any hard and fast rules when it comes to this area of music, but generally Goth is a catch-all term, not terribly descriptive in itself with Industrial holding a similar position. EBM could be seen as a subset of Industrial, but I couldn't possibly comment...

If you want to submit a band that isn't featured here, or report any inaccuracies or suggestions for amendments please use the form available here (really have to work on transferring the functionality from that page over to this server).
