Lol.. hehe. :p
My point of this journal entry is to tell how I gotten into this music and give my view on some artist and possibly recommend to those not aware of them yet.
I've been into gothic metal
and gothic rock
for quite some time now (back januari 2005). And I must say it's fantastic music.
I wouldn't have gotten into this music if it weren't for Rissara (Natt). And I owe her this all really.
Before I knew Rissara I was mainstream
trash who hated gothic
music for no reason other then it being non-mainstream.
My first real dark rock
band I knew (before Rissara) was Evanescence
, with their album Fallen
. It really sparked of something in me. I guess they can be defined as dark rock
because they just miss the instrumental power that's in gothic metal
. Do correct me if I'm wrong. Fallen is absolutely great. Lyrics rule, and the music is all good.
That and the cover of Tainted Love
had somewhat sparked of an interest for 'the dark side' in my mainstream heart. :p
