KOBRA AND THE LOTUS — BIO – PREVAIL

Launched in 2009, Kobra And The Lotus is the lifeblood and passion of Canadian vocalist Kobra Paige. Eight years into their journey, the band has gone through significant changes in sound and personnel to the point that they were able evolve and create what is easily the strongest album in the Kobra And The Lotus catalogue. In fact, the aptly titled Prevail is such a show of strength that Kobra and her bandmates chose to make a double album to be released in two parts over the next year; a venture very few artists have the backbone to attempt.

Hailing from Calgary, Alberta, Kobra And The Lotus garnered immediate attention in Canada and the US with their debut album, Out Of The Pit, in 2010. The release of their self-titled second album in 2012 and High Priestess in 2014 enabled the band to tour worldwide both as a headliner and support act, which included a North American tour with KISS and Def Leppard. Sadly, Kobra was forced to take an eight month break from music due to a battle with Lyme disease, but Kobra And The Lotus regained much needed momentum with their Words Of The Prophets covers EP in 2015. In fact, the EP played was an integral part in the birth of Prevail in that it cemented the working relationship between Kobra and guitarist Jasio Kulakowski, who joined the band in 2012.

The idea of making a double album was introduced by Kobra’s father, who suggested they do it because the vast majority of younger generation metal artists don’t have the drive. Kobra admits she thought he was insane and that it was a surefire way to commit career suicide.

“A week later, I couldn’t get the idea out of my head because I didn’t see any reason why we couldn’t push ourselves to do it,” says Kobra. “We could at least try, and in that way make a bold statement that Kobra And The Lotus is still hanging in there.”

When the band signed with Napalm Records, who were 100% supportive of the double album concept, the label opted to split Prevail into two parts because they felt it was too much material all at once that would go over people’s heads. Twenty-one songs in all (including a cover), Prevail I and II share outstanding and diverse material due to the fact the songs were all written at the same time. Not only that, they wrote and recorded together in the studio with producer Jacob Hansen. According to Kobra, the band went to Denmark almost completely empty-handed and had very little material prepared. She calls it an “amazing experience” in that all the writing happened in one place, where the band members could bounce ideas off each other and encourage one other. They also benefitted from Hansen’s considerable knowledge and experience.

“I’d say about 85% of Prevail happened in the studio on the spot,” says Kobra. “Once we saw how much more colour was added to the songs by working that way we started to feel comfortable with the process. There were some unique things that happened because we were all there together. There was a whole new, whole different vision for this album. I didn’t know how this was going to turn out; a lot of it came from my intuition. Jasio is my writing partner and he’s a creative force. We lock in with one another when we write, it’s amazing. I’m really proud and overjoyed with how the album turned out.”

Prevail marks Kobra And The Lotus’ debut as members of the Napalm Records roster, but for Kobra the collaboration is a first on many levels for the band.

“It’s one of those amazing things that happens and I feel so blessed that Napalm were still interested in us. Every time we were getting ready to release something they were always there looking at us. We always went somewhere else and it was never a good choice (laughs). Okay, it was a good choice in how we needed to grow, but Napalm is the best label we could have hoped for because they’re dedicated and they work really hard. There’s a lot of young energy at the label and that’s a blessing compared to other deals we’ve had. I don’t think we ever knew what it meant to be supported by a label until we signed with Napalm.”

In the months prior to the release of Prevail, fans were treated to three singles: “Trigger Pulse”, “Gotham” and “You Don’t Know”. It comes as no surprise they are reminiscent of some of the material on High Priestess thanks to Kobra and Jasio’s partnership, but they also attest to Kobra And The Lotus’ massive growth as songwriters and musicians since the last record. On paper it sounds like lip service to say the band has become heavier, more dynamic and adventurous, but your ears don’t lie.

Bottom line… Kobra And The Lotus are fearless as they move forward with Prevail, and with good reason………..

 Lucifer “Lucifer I” and then the back catalog which happens on July 6th, 2018 which is  Lucifer”Lucifer II”….ALL YOU NEED IS LUCIFER, in life, Satan is pretty cool, especially the “Court in the Act” CD. I love Lucifer and Satan just as much but Lucifer has Johanna Sadonis. So for this article Lucifer is better than Satan.

  The Oath “The Oath” Fucking Essential album, and included here, because World-Class Vocalist Johanna Sadonis, later went on to the legendary band “Lucifer”

    Crest of Darkness “The Ogress” our top HEAVY METAL album of all-time. Read there bio, to see why there are in these pages, kind of cool, the influeces are on there sleeve, all in no poser at all, whoa and ha ha…The Whole Back Catalgoe is ahem GODLY and FUCKING RULES all the WAY. This album is one I listen to everyday, as soon as it

      Cradle of Filth “Cruelty and the Beast” one of our favorite bands of all-time, the whole back catalog fucking rules, i buy it all every year, all full length releases… the older albums are hard to find, Cacophonous is gone so is Music For NationS.

        Riti Occulti “Riti Occulti” One of the Greatest Metal Bands of all-time, in this subject matter, and dam it will take you a while to realize the guitarist is just the bassist, but does not matter, since there music is pure timelessness and each album is a timeless masterpiece.

        Wooden Stake ALL RELEASES, has the same KILLER vibes of Riti Occulti. The Undisputed Queen of Horror Metal Vanessa Nocera is the Vocalist one this, and if your read these pages enough, you will realized I have a RAZORBACK RECORDS HALL OF FAME ROOM just for all things.

Dream Big !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

            Witchcross “ALL ALBUMS” Crypt of the Undead, and the upcoming “Cauldron in Satan’s Shadow”  are subjective favorites, objectively all albums are fucking essential

            The Empire Hideous “Only Time Will Tell”, “Victim Destroys Assailants” “I’m Dead, Your Dead, Were All Dead”….In 1996, The Empire Hideous was featured on USA’s Up All Night program for a Halloween special. The band played several songs and was interviewed by Rhonda Shear in between segments.

                The Bronx Casket Company “The Bronx Casket Company” & “Sweet Home Transylvania” are favorites, same Vocalist as The Empire Hideous, but has a different stage name on these

                 Unicorn Death “Unicorn Death”…….can’t go wrong with Cassie Morris as the Keyboard Player. Symphonic Legend Metal and Symphonic Metal Legends.

                    Mercyful Fate “Melissa” & “Don’t Break the Oath” One of the best traditional metal artist of all-time along with Satan, and Attacker, heavy metal for fans who are metal worshippers.

                        King Diamond “Fatal Portrait”, “Abigail” “Them”

                             Dismal Euphony “Python Zero” This is one of the most important albums of all-time for avant-garde gothic metal fans, all the borders of rock/metal/classical/avant-garde metal gone forever. Not really occult metal in the lyrics, but the music has one of the most gothic atmospheres ever

                            Bathesheba “Servus”

                                 Kabbalah Spectral Ascent”

                                Deathless Legacy ALL RELEASES “Rituals of Black Magic” is the subjective favorite.
                                   The Vision Bleak “The Wolves Go Hunt There Prey one of the greatest albums of all-time, the atmsophere of this album alone, makes this a fucking essential purchase.

KICK ASS METAL RATING

100 OUT OF 100 BLOOD DRIPPING SKULLS

FUCKING ESSENTIAL

TOP 100 ALBUMS OF 2018

FRONT-RUNNER BEST COVERS VERSION ALBUM OF THE YEAR

 

Since February 24th, 1994 this has always been a GOTHIC METAL-age/ DEATH METAL-age/ AVANT-GARDE METAL-age publication, but my main influence in my college years was the GODLY ill-literautre Magazine which ran from 1988 to 2003, and pretty much the print media age was over for the more commerical metal publications, there are specialized press in each metal sub-genre that thrive even to this day.  ill-literature was the 1st metal publication, to cover any artist as long as they were original, kick ass, and authentic. Authenticity is the aspect in music in which bands become transcended, and the thing were bands make SUPREME IMMORTAL ART OF THE HIGHEST ORDER, instead of entertainment.

 

For those not up on current hard rock and heavy metal history, the Haxans won the 2018 Gothic Album of Year Winner, that is relevant here because our first speciality as a specialized press in, will have to say it again, Since February 24th, 1994 KICK ASS METAL has always been a GOTHIC METAL-age/ DEATH METAL-age/ AVANT-GARDE METAL-age publication, but my main influence in my college years was the GODLY ill-literature Magazine which ran from 1988 to 2003, which specialized in Gothic Metal, Death Metal, Avant-Garde Metal, but went all in on Alternative Metal, like no other.

As a heavy metal fan since 1978, i became a fan of the covers album via Metallica with Creeping Death Garage Days EP in November of 1984, and the Garage Days Revisited in the Summer of 1987. So i am very open-minded about these kind of releases.

 

The packing of the New Years Day “Diary of A Creep” is bare-bones, exactly like a promo sleeve album, that i used to get back when the vinyl era changed over to the CD age in 1988 for some and in 1990 for most. I bought 2 copies of this, for now initially, will get more later, because it was sold a Maxi-Single to a Extended Play Price.  The music society pages have this release unleashed on Planet Metal back a couple of months ago, maybe for digital release, since this was one of the most anticipated releases in hard rock/ heavy metal of 2018, this was going to be a 1st day purchase, so the official CD release date is February 23rd, 2018, for the actual CD.

 

I love this album so much i will have to get in a better pressing, maybe a import where this is released with CD booklet and a CD layout. I would love to see liner notes about this release. So will have to keep working on this and will let you know what happens with this release. This recording is so good in the future I hope it is added as a second disc, when “Malevolence” ever gets a re-press, re-edition. That is how good this extended play release is !!!!!!!!!!

 

 

The track-listing is

Disgust Me

Bizarre Love Triangle

Fucking Hostile

Crawling

Only Happy When it Rains featuring World-Class Vocalist Lzzy Hale

Don’t Speak

 

While the whole EP is perfect in every way, there is a sweet spot on this the four songs of “Fucking Hostile”, “Crawling” “Only Happy When it Rains” with Lzzy Hale as a guest vocalist !!!!!!!!!!! and “Don’t Speak”

 

Fucking Hostile is the all-time classic from Groove Metal pioneers and  Nü-METAL GODFATHERS, Pantera. As a  Nü-METAL fanatic insane metal maniac, Pantera really pulled a way from the generic thrash scrap metal pack, by making METAL even heavier, and more power soaked than even 99.9 of most DEATH METAL, of it day and of all-time. But what I love about this version, with the added melody, on the vocal lines, this version will have you grabbing for your copies of Pantera “POWER METAL” in no time!!!

You have to get Pantera “POWER METAL” on cassette, or vinyl since Metal Magic Records only pressed it on CD in a limited run of 2,000 COPIES, and myself I have 3 of them, and 2 copies of a December 1988 simulcast recording where half of the song listing is from Power Metal and half of the song listing is from the then upcoming Cowboys From Hell!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Crawling is up next and of course every Alternative Rock and Alternative Metal fan knows it is the Linkin Park all-time classic from one of the most original bands of all-time. I really loved all the artistry of Linkin Park, and this was a real treat for all the Linkin Park/New Years Day true fans. And really felt this song did the original justice, while making it there own.

 

Only Happy When It Rains is a cover version from the legendary Garbage featuring World-Class Vocalist Shirley Manson, and this version features a guest vocal spot from one of the grestest hard rocker/ heavy metal vocalist of all-time in Lzzy Hale, and while the original is awesome and powerful, this version also is bad ass and kick ass in its own right !!!!!

 

Don’t Speak is from the highly influential, Gwen Stefani who is a true inspiration on a few artist featured in these pages, No Dobut is a band always in heavy metal play list rotation alongside artist such as Berlin with Terri Nunn, as well as artist such as the usual Metal Blade, Combat, Megaforce, Shrapnel Records top-tier artist. Think the October 31st 1982 to October 31st 1986-era!!!!

 

Metallica later in the year will be unleashing the 1987 “The $5.98 EP” on Blackend Records, so between heavy rotations of that releases, will be heavy rotation of New Years Day “Diary of A Creep” and the FUCKING ESSENTIAL volumes 1-3 of  Halestorm ReAniMate

 

 

 

 

Below is a article from Alternative Press, and is here for posterity !!!!

New Years Day are kicking off the new year with a new EP, Diary Of A Creep, chock-full of awesome rock covers. It features a fresh original track, “Disgust Me,” alongside a collection of cover tunes from Linkin ParkGarbageNo DoubtPantera and New Order.

We caught up with front-woman Ash Costello to talk about each track on Diary Of A Creep and how each band—and song—helped shape her into the artist she is today.


It was incredibly difficult to narrow this down to five songs we wanted to cover the most. It was very important to me to not only pay tribute to the artists who shaped who I am today, but to share it with all of you.

It’s easy to dismiss where an artist has come from if you have no clue who they worshipped when they were just kids in school, dreaming of being a real musician someday. These are just a few of the songs that helped and shaped me along the way. I am grateful to you for listening, and I hope you enjoy the covers as much as I do.

Pantera, “Fucking Hostile”
When I was in high school, there were different groups of kids. The goth kids. The ska kids. The punk kids. The metal kids. I had ins with all of them. The metal gang was all about the music. Every lunchtime, it was only about listening to each other’s favorite metal songs together at our table in the school quad. The bands we played ranged from Iron Maiden and Megadeth to Slayer and Cradle Of Filth. But one band really did it for me. Fucking Pantera. The guitar riffs. The guitar tone. The songs’ subject matter. The way they looked. Something about it just felt like mine. And above all the other songs, after all this time, “Fucking Hostile” still makes every single one of my “before I hit the stage” playlists. It has shaped a lot of my musical songwriting preferences, and it’s what I base a lot of New Years Day’s music on.

RIP Dimebag.

Linkin Park, “Crawling”
It’s the perfect song. There, I said it. In nine out of 10 songwriting sessions, I use this song as an example. The lyrics say so much. They describe every way I feel by saying very, very little. It taught me that I can speak novels about what’s going on inside my head, and my heart, without saying anything at all.

It was hard to narrow down the five songs I wanted to cover because through the years, the ebb and flow of my musical taste changed and twisted so much. But I wanted to do this for Chester. I am still in shock over what he may have been going through internally. I relate to it more than I’d like to say, and I really felt strongly about singing the words he sang.

Garbage, “Only Happy When It Rains”
To be honest, I was not a fan of many female singers growing up. I never liked the pop stars. I appreciated their talent and their work. But the female had to have some very specific requirements for me to fangirl over them, I realized once I became a frontwoman myself. I liked women who weren’t afraid. They pushed the limits. They made you think. They were feminine, but ass-kicking. They were dark, but not too dark. Shirley Manson is perfect. The music represented me. Queer, No. 1 crush, just flawless, but “Only Happy When It Rains” was my motherfucking anthem. I wouldn’t be the artist I am today had I not studied Garbage albums in middle school.

No Doubt, “Don’t Speak”
No Doubt are it for me. No Doubt were my first love. The first time I was a fan of anything or anybody. Gwen was my ultimate hero. I dressed like her in middle school. I wore the creepers with the Dickies. I had the bangs, the red lipstick and the crop tops. I studied her mannerisms and stage moves. The way she was vulnerable onstage, but let you know she was the queen bitch in charge. I would pretend to be the rock star in a band while lip-syncing to all of Tragic Kingdom. She grew up around the corner from me. Her mom and my mom would run into each other at the supermarket, and we attended the same junior high and high school. Her sweetness and her ability to take charge. How she was just a normal and simple girl yet extraordinary. I had a No Doubt cover band in high school, and we played parties and coffee shops. I was the ultimate fangirl. I saw No Doubt play in 1995, and I knew I wanted to be just like Gwen. “Just A Girl” was my first pick, but it seemed too obvious. “Don’t Speak” can still make me cry, so it was a no-brainer.

New Order, “Bizarre Love Triangle”
My mom was a single, working mother, so my grandma, a practicing Wiccan, and her two sons, who were total Robert Smith-looking ’80s goths, would babysit me. They would dress me in black, put black lipstick on me and we’d have dance parties in the living room to their favorite new wave songs. This one was always my absolute favorite. You can’t not dance to it. And since NYD have already covered a Depeche Mode song, New Order seems like the next obvious move.

Below is from a February 21st, 2018 KICK ASS METAL TOUR NEWS FEATURE

Atlantic recording group HALESTORM have announced details of a milestone North American tour showcasing all female-fronted hard rock outfits. The dates — co-headlined by Roadrunner recording group IN THIS MOMENT — begins April 30 in Houston, Texas and then travels through mid-May. Support throughout the trek comes from special guests NEW YEARS DAYand STITCHED UP HEART.

The tour will include stops at a number of upcoming festivals and state fairs, including Jacksonville, Florida’s Welcome To Rockville (April 27); Fort Lauderdale, Florida’s Fort Rock(April 28); and Charlotte, North Carolina’s Carolina Rebellion (May 5).

“We’ve been wanting to put together a tour like this for a long time,” says HALESTORM‘s Lzzy Hale. “We are a few of the hardest-working women in rock, so the fact that we are all on the same stage every night is something not to be missed! We support and love each other, and we are representing our genre. This lineup is a beautiful display of what it means to be a strong female example for rock fans everywhere.”

IN THIS MOMENT‘s frontwoman Maria Brink echoed the sentiment, saying: “I am very excited about being a part of such an empowering, divine, female-fronted tour. It is very rare in rock music to have a movement like this and the timing couldn’t be more perfect. Lzzy and I are already discussing the possibility of more tours like this in the future. Let the Amazons rise!”

NEW YEARS DAY frontwoman Ash Costello adds: “I am beyond thrilled to be sharing the stage with such strong women. Having toured with both HALESTORM and IN THIS MOMENTalready, they are such powerful forces, it’s just incredible to be a part of every night. I’m very excited for an all female fronted tour, because in all my years of touring, this is the very first time I’ll have been a part of one. I can’t wait to walk on stage and feel the support of a crowd that is there to witness women of rock slay for an entire evening. What an evening it will be! You won’t want to miss this tour, I can promise you that.”

“This is our dream lineup,” says STITCHED UP HEART frontwoman Mixi. “Every single band on this bill is a huge inspiration to us and unbelievably talented. We are beyond excited for this run!”

Ash Costello BIO

https://www.facebook.com/ashcostelloofficial/

Ah. Well… I attended Julliard… I’m a graduate of the Harvard business school. I travel quite extensively. I lived through the Black Plague and had a pretty good time during that. I’ve seen the EXORCIST ABOUT A HUNDRED AND SIXTY-SEVEN TIMES, AND IT KEEPS GETTING FUNNIER EVERY SINGLE TIME I SEE IT… NOT TO MENTION THE FACT THAT YOU’RE TALKING TO A DEAD GIRL… NOW WHAT DO YOU THINK?!?

This is the lifestyle I love.

New Years Day:

Imagine if Dexter Morgan with side kick Eric Northman, hosted a late late late night talk show in a haunted mansion deep within the enchanted cemetery, then NEW YEARS DAY would most assuredly be their house band with warm blood-spattered bottles of True Blood offered in the “red room” for the visiting “undead”.

If Gerard Way and Haley Williams had a demon baby girl, who sang youthful hook-laden dark-rock with tongue-in-cheek macabre lyrics, dark molten ghoulishness and topped mischievousness.

On a Savage Sunday Concert Review

THE GREATEST SHOW ON PLANET METAL

FEBRUARY 18TH 2018

Token Lounge

28949 Joy Road

Westland, Michigan/United States of America

48185

It is a blurrrrrr…..3rd or 4th time seeing the UnHollyWood, Killafronia INDUSTRIAL METAL GODS AND LEGENDS….Saw them last year in 2017, and a few times in circa 2015, will have to flip through the chapters of KICK ASS METAL, to see, but as one of the premier and greatest live band of this era, and of all-time in all things KICK ASS METAL and INDUSTRIAL METAL…..!!!

No matter how many times i say it, this is a GOTHIC-age/ Avant-Garde Metal-age/ Death Metal-age publicaton, since this publication on March 1st 2013 and 1993 before that when i worked else where. Davey Suicide has been featured here a few times in KICK ASS METAL, and  if your astute and quick on your feet GOTHIC and INDUSTRIAL METAL GO Hand-IN-Hand, you will realized that no matter what gothic or industrial metal publication you read. 2nd time seeing this line-up back to back, and if you have the self-awareness. KICK ASS METAL is very much similar to Vampire Freaks WebZine, except we avoid the emotional crossover acts and artist, because that is there spectrum of Alternative Press, which I never read, because i have my own established influences.

No set list, but all of the classics were played KIDS OF AMERICA * RISE ABOVE * NO ANGEL * TOO MANY FREAKS * GENERATION FUCK STAR….of course more songs were played but will not mention them because without a set list….so .

Anyhow as a true real Marilyn Manson and The Kovenant fan, since day 1 for each artist. I love Davey Suicide more than Marylin Manson, and between the Kovenant and Davey Suicide, it is pretty close….anyhow when talking about the top 10 INDUSTRIAL METAL artist of all-time. I easily rate Davey Suicide in the top 10 of all-time, of course were THE BIGGEST Hanzel Und Gretyl fans of all-time, and quite honestly lose alot of readers because of that….well bye, bye and good riddance, same goes for Davey Suicide, if you think they don’t belong in these pages, not only are you sadly mistaken, and will support this band for the rest of my tenure, and my successor is a huge fan also.

Davey Suicide is more important to me more than Marilyn Manson. Even though like i said i am a Marilyn Manson true fan, since day 1…..just every legendary band has a successor, and Davey Suicide is a successor, because his artistic vision is all Davey Suicide own, one-of-a-kind style. I really do not like making top 100 rankings, but these have to happen because this readership, who know me personally, since my involvement in heavy metal since 1983 where i got the real evocation for this genre which i started as a true fan in 1978.

This was one of the best concerts i have been to in my life, and every-time I have seen them i have been in the front row, which still blows my mind even to this day….Each member has a amazing stage presence, and charisma, and authenticity, that is what separates the legends from the IMMORTALS OF METAL, while Davey Suicide are legends in the Industrialized Metal Genre, they are also IMMORTALS OF METAL, we cover the 7 main genres in heavy metal and the 7 mirror images of these styles in the rock and avant-garde styles, so 21 genres and 117,000 bands in each style and we try to bring you the top 700 artist of each style of each decade, century and all-time.

Davey Suicide is the real deal, and the one of the greatest show in the industrial metal realm. Bands are never here just for this or that, each band is a chapter of a heavy metal bible, of course the term metal has different definitions from publication to publication, for KICK ASS METAL we do not care if your ROCK/AVANT-GARDE/METAL/ CLASSICAL just you have to RULE and KICK ASS….!!!!! I have the Davey Suicide back catalog, i would never tell you to spend your tax refund or life savings on a band, unless i did myself, and I hit the merchandise tables hard the last two times they were in town….as far as a band, they are the coolest people on earth, which adds to the killer vibes of there high energy live shows. A concert should have resonance, with your inner evocation of what you love in heavy metal. And Davey Suicide is a band that takes me to another part of my psyche, the part alot of bands can not touch or tap into, but Davey Suicide is one of the greastest live bands of there genre and of all-time.  Of course my mind was blown, jaw dropped on the floor as i was floored while having chills run up and down my spine, while i decompress, let loose of the negative and recharge the positive. I can only say that about the top-tier upper-echelon bands of each genre, and of all-time. And Davey Suicide is one of the bands. Like I said Davey Suicide is stamped and left a indelible mark on history and deeply scared these pages all the way to page 1 of underground year zero day 1…..Ranking are important here, because it determines who gets news and who gets concert reviews, I keep alot of rankings/rating close to ourselves, but I will say Davey Suicide, is one of the greatest INDUSTRIALIZED METAL artist of all-time like i said I file Davey Suicide in heavy rotation between Marilyn Manson,  Hanzel Und Gretyl, and The Kovenant, and the other logical top 25 artist in your top 25 and my top 25.

TOO MANY FREAKS AND NOT ENOUGH CIRCUSES, FREAKS DO IT BETTER DIDN’T YOU KNOW, AND DAVEY SUICIDE IS ONE THE GREATEST SHOW ON PLANET METAL. 

FUCKING ESSENTIAL CONCERT TO SAY THE LEAST, I JUST HOPE OVER MY TENURE HERE, I CAN DO THIS BAND justice and articulate how much they mean to me, and why they should be in every serious KICK ASS METAL record collection world-wide.

The name, “Suicide” is a constant reminder that unless we kill ourselves, there’s no ceiling for what we are capable of.“

Hailing from Unholywood Killafornia, Davey Suicide is cultivating the underground by fusing arena rock, gutter grit, sleaze, killer tunes and theatrics into their own “nu” brand of industrial rock. The band, which features Davey Suicide along with Drayven Davidson, Needlz, Niko Gemini, and Derek Obscura, distills rock, industrial and punk into anthems that are as corrosive as they are catchy. “Rock fans haven’t gone anywhere,“ Suicide exclaims, “they just need a reason to fall in love again.”

Formed in 2010, Suicide played a few shows in Hollywood, California before garnering the attention of a couple labels and the former manager of Linkin Park. Armed with the recordings that later became the Davey Suicide LP, by early 2012, Suicide signed a record deal with Standby Records. By the summer of 2012, Suicide started extensively touring. From 2012-2015, the band went on 16 tours, over 330 shows (with the likes of Static-X, Combichrist, Wednesday 13, Twiztid, Ill Nino, Orgy, New Years Day, William Control) and put out 3 releases including the Put Our Trust in Suicide EP (Nov 2012), the self titled Davey Suicide LP (March 2013) and the World Wide Suicide LP (September 2014).

Along the way, Suicide gained notable press with songs “Generation Fuck Star” and “Kids of America” by Kerrang Magazine as one of the Top 50 Rockstars in the World, Alternative Press’ 100 Bands You Need to Know, Revolver Magazine’s Ones to Watch, and numerous features in Big Cheese, Outburn, Substream, Scuzz TV & Blank TV.

Rumors of heavy friction between Suicide and the record label started surfacing after the intentional botched release by the label of World Wide Suicide in September 2014. In the spring of 2015, Suicide and the record label locked horns in a litigation over rights of Suicide’s albums and numerous contractual breaches. After a year and a half of litigating with little movement on the case, Suicide decided to release a tell-all video depicting the details of what the band had gone through with the label in August of 2016. The tell-all video immediately went viral and spun the music community into a media circus. It amassed over 1.3 million views, and reached over 3 million people in a matter of days. Shortly after the video went viral, an emergency hearing was called by the label and took place in Ohio. The lawsuit got settled the day of the hearing in exchange for the viral post being removed from Facebook. In addition, a settlement, freedom and music rights were granted to Suicide.

in late August of 2016, Suicide released the empowering single, “Rise Above” which got added to Kerrang TV, Scuzz TV and Kerrang Radio’s rotation. “Rise Above” symbolized freedom, a new life for the band and became the first single off their 3rd studio album entitled, “Made From Fire.”

On September 16, 2016, Davey Suicide’s catalogue was re-released on Itunes, and all digital outlets by Suicide under the name AntiSystem Records.

Made From Fire, the 3rd studio LP, was released on March 24, 2017 and charted on Billboard. The album peaked at #3 on Top Heatseakers, #6 on Top Hard Rock, #14 on Top Independent and #76 on the Top 200.
Made From Fire has guest features from Twiztid and William Control. Suicide exclaims, “all of this adversity tested us and forced us to learn how to survive. It could have ended us, but instead, we’ve created our most exciting collection of material to date.”

Critics and the public have been raving over this comeback story. “Davey Suicide’s, “Made From Fire” incorporates the anarchistic bite of vintage Marilyn Manson with the stadium feel of Bring Me The Horizon and the epic melodies courtesy of In This Moment. Blended together with barefaced sex appeal and borderline extremism and danger, Davey Suicide has erected a new kingdom of torching wrath, industrial destruction, passionate melodies, tons of charisma and a tough attitude allowing only one conclusion: If there’s one Rock band out there the world really, really needs right now, it’s Davey Suicide.“

The band finished their first few tours off this album cycle with Dope and Combichrist, Doyle (Misfits guitarist) and a headline run to the Ink in the Clink festival w/ 3 Days Grace. They are currently on their 3rd single entitled, “No Angel” and are heading out this winter to continue supporting, Made From Fire.

TWISTED VALUES

Written by : Fernanda Lira, Prika Amaral * Lyrics by : Fernanda Lira

Disorganized State, organized crime
Fear is taking over, hate being spread
fight for equality, so there’s no excuses
Not a society’s product, but their own choice’s

A Covered Up Civil War
Laws Done By Outlaws
Lives taken in vain
Terror practiced for fun

Twisted Values
Impurity
Twisted Values
Injustice

No role modles to follow, no enough laws to punish
Being evil is good, violence is usual

Killings going on and nothings done
Don’t do it by need, it’s pleasure (casuse) they’ll be free

Until when lives will be valueless?
Until when we’ll sustain them?
Until when we’ll be victim’s of their responsibilities?

Twisted Values
Impurity
Twisted Values
Corruption

JUSTICE BE DONE

Written by: Fernanda Lira, Prika Amaral and Fernanda Terra Lyrics by: Fernanda Lira

Children defenseless against cowards
Torture, abuse, harm
Leave Marks, satisfy desires
Evil pest, what is going on?

Fear
of the filthy hands
Guilt
of doing nothing
Pain
suffering in silence
Rage
they just can’t forget

Justice be Done
Silent Hurt
Justice be Done

Nowhere to run or to hide
No enough laws to punish or fight
The family won’t listen their cry
I speak in the name of this child

WAKE UP AND FIGHT
Written by: Fernanda Lira, Prika Amaral and Fernanda Terra Lyrics by: Fernanda Lira

Wake up and fight!
Wake up and fight!

While you’re hungry-they feed their greed
While you’re homeless-they live confomfortably
While you’re dumb-they steal your money
When you’re blingd-they make fake promises

Own benefit
Death of Ethic
Power Games
Laughing at ya

The raise up the flag of fucking likes
They betray us who should be (their) allies
Submit us to their shitty corruption

People don’t know
Were on Control!

NASTY INJURY

Written by: Fernanda Lira, Prika Amaral and Fernanda Terra Lyrics by: Prika Amaral

Time becoming a loss
Transforming every minute in pain
Won’t escape, took the blame, cold blood
Searching the unthinkable

Want to make otherwise
A moment of pure ambition
Seeking a reversal mode
You won’t get nothing from revenge

Search will be constant
Return won’t exist
Time Will be lost
No Satisfaction

Revenge!
Suffering!
Are the Consequences of his revenge
Revenge!
Suffering!
Are the principle of his defeat now
Revenge!
Suffering!
Are the values of your life now

ENVIOUS

Written by: Prika Amaral, Fernanda Lira and Fernanda Terra Lyrics by: Fernanda Lira 
Watch other thrive
Corrodes you inside
Wasted Struggle
Insult to your self-worth

You envy but you don’t recognize the hard work
My wise piece of mind-your frustration inside

Shut, move,
No words, but action
Shut, move
Pursuit satisfaction

It made me stronger
I forgave the slander
Incompetence, hate
Makes you feel this way

Trust your value
Do it better
Don’t envy other
Have your merits

MORBID COURAGE

Written by: Prika Amaral, Fernanda Lira and Fernanda Terra Lyrics by: Prika Amaral

A loser
A weak
A coward
Not able to build

Your life a mistake
Stealing won’t change you better

Inability, agony will go over you
Coward character
The hate, disgrace is what you’re gonna get

Your not free – and will never will be
Your not free – mistaken obsession

Morbid courage
Morbid and lost

Freed is lost
You choose the evil path

Your life – disgrace
You’ll pay for what you caused

DEATH!

Written by: Prika Amaral, Fernada Lira Lyrics by: Prika Amaral

The line is formed, wait for your turn, it’s going to come
Your are not alone and not going to die alone
There is a wall of people like you, afraid and crying, begging for life
Memories from your past, despair in your mind, the time has come

Bullet in the skin
Bullet in the head

Draining blood
Aiming The target
The end, the execution

Death! Death! Death!
Death! Death! Death! Shots fired

What was your sin? Why are you there? Do you deserve it?
Is if fair? Is it right? Is it wrong? What is justice?
Is it a education matter? Is it a religion matter?
Is it a culture matter?
What is going on?

INTO MOSHPIT

Written by: Fernanda Lira, Prika Amaral and Fernanda Terra Lyrics by: Fernanda Lira

Join the army, get in the violent mosh
Metal taking over
Arise your fistful of metal
Join the art of partying
Don’t care (about) the morning after

Bangers are bonded by blood
So the legacy survive
There’s no space for ignorance
There’s no malicious intent

No illusions
Grin on face
Show no mercy
This is thrash zone

The most terror squad
Is possessed by fire
Extreme aggression
Metal pandemonium

Into moshpit
Into moshpit
Into moshpit
Into moshpit

DEEP MISERY

Hunger compresses the stomach, despair increasing
Skin and bones, weakness, anemia and diseases

The cold from the ground freezes the sould
People despise deep misery
Who cares, does nothing change
Tis is no impossible for anyone

Anybody cares?
Anybody care?

The pain not to be nothing
the pain not to ben anyone anyone
The pain not to be anymore
The pain to be exclude

Deep misery
Deep misery
Deep misery
Deep misery

The pain of hunger is not a reason
People pretend not to see
Who care, dones not contribute
Any you can be in this situation

Repeat chorus

A bother of a hard ground bring pain
People ignore what they see
Who cares, doesn’t really help others
This can not happen to you, you are not free

Anybody cares?
Anybody cares?

VICTIM OF YOURSELF
Lyrics by: Fernanda Lira

The real you isn’t what you show
Your Not authentic
Blame others for your flaws
It is easier than admitting them

A lack inside, hidden by pride
Victim’s the hurt child lying inside

CHORUS

Victim of
Victim of yourself
Victim of
Victim of yourself

It is the only way to get your need’s satisfaction
It is the only way you’ll get attention
It is the only way you’ll deserve compassion
It is the only way you can fell you’re special

REPEAT CHORUS

You think you’re always right
Never Swallow your pride
Don’t admit your wrong
Hurt the ones who love you

REPEAT CHORUS

Created a safe, lunatic world to run from yourself
Afraid, you know you’ll be alone when truth overcome this lies

(Your) freak attitudes will come back to you
Don’t say you got nothing to do with the disgrace

REPEAT CHORUS

It is the only way (you) play the kid forever
It is the only way you won’t admit your shallow
But beware you’re creating your own prison
You’ll only become crazy, faker and alone

REPEAT CHORUS

After a short intro entitled Intro and it starts of with LOUD cracking of thunder lighting and a creaking gate, and machine gun fire, and has a totally ominous vibe, that every fan of metal should be able to enjoy and notice the screams in the background, and the RIFF @ the 56 second mark displays why Prika Amaral is KICK*ASS*METALS favorite guitar player who was voted # 20 world-wide of all time, as the greatest guitarist in not only traditional metal but true metal, what later became known as extreme metal. This piece of music from 56 – 2:00 minutes mark is totally mind-blowing and jaw dropping, and a sight to behold.

Twisted Values is up first and this song is a perfect example why Prika Amaral is a top 20 ranked / rated Guitarist of all time With KICK*ASS*METAL and it subsidiary the KICK*ASS*METAL heavy metal hall of fame.

Prika Starts the proceeding with one of the most unique guitar tones I have heard in a longtime.

And a 54 second in Nervosa demonstrates why they are one of the most original and most important bands of the decade of 2010 and of all time.

By 229 Prika Amaral executes a rather awesome guitar solo.

Justice Be Done starts of with a rather unique riff and the song builds up nicely then around the 33 second mark the Nervosa trade mark sound is in full effect. Around the 108 mark excellent vocals provide by BOTH Fernanda Lira, and Prika Amaral. The solo @ the 140 mark will have your jaw on the floor and ends around the 2 minute mark. Fernada Lira sounds unreal on this one, make Fernada Lira the most magnificent most original metal vocalist of the decade 2010 and of all time

Wake Up and Fight is up next by the tome of 1 minute in the Prika Amaral guitar tone really gets to shine. Lots of genius to the songwriting on the music on this song at this point. Fernanada Lira really shines as a world-class vocalist on this song. The solo at the 245 mark is rather breath-taking and will send chills up and down your spine. This song is a total metal CRUNCHER.

Nasty Injury starts off with the one-of-kind guitar tone of Prika Amaral and around the 40 second mark Nervosa gets into high Nervosa thrash gear before the two-minute mark Prika Amaral does some excellent riff work then around the 2:10 mark some excellent riff and rhythm work is excecuted by Prika Amaral. The solo @ the 2:20 – 2:27 mark is totally well written and executed by World Class Guitarist Prika Amaral. And the rhythm section work by Fernanda Lira and Pitch Ferraz is totally mind blowning a perfect in all songwriting aspect. The songs main riff is used throughout the 3 minutes mark

Envious is up next. The Solo at the 2:14 mark is executed very well and demonstrates why Prika Amaral is a top rated in the top 20 of all time at kick ass metal. And Fernada Lira does some world-class bass work @ the 2:20 mark. Then @ the 2:26 mark Prika Amaral writes one of the most head banging riffs of the 21st century. The guitar tone of Prika Amaral that I love the most is on display @ the 2:40 mark. The song picks up pace then @ the 3:40 mark the song down shift into bone cruching metal style, the kind of songwriting that is perfect for head banging.

Morbid Courage is up next, and starts of Prika Amaral’s signature one-of-a-kind guitar tone. And has an excellent song build up in terms of intensity and heaviness in the fist minutes. Morbid Courage has excellent Lira/ Amaral vocal exchanges in the 1 and a half-minute mark. There is a perfect example of Pitchu Ferraz world clas drumming style @ the 1:50-1:58 mark. @ the 1:58 mark the song downs shifts for an excellent Prika Amaral solo, @ the 2:05 second mark.

Death! is up next and is one of the Greatest, written Metallic songs of all time. Prika Amaral displays every aspect of her unique and original style. I have watched the legendary video for over 7, 899 times by now since it was released around a month ago. The guitar solo starts @ the 1:22 mark and is well written and executed perfectly by metal axepert Prika Amaral. And last to the 1:54 mark. @ the 2 minute mark, the song is totally in the pocket, At the 3;00 minutes mark the Prika Amaral one-of-a-kind guitar tone is one display again in all its metallic glory.

THE GUITAR SOLO on DEATH! is one of KICK*ASS*METAL’S personal favorites of all time. Our jaws were on the floor on this one. 100% world-class dedication to her instrument.

Into Moshpit is up next and @ the 40 second mark, once can hear a totally unique and original riff executed by Prika Amaral. The guitar work provide by Prika Amaral in the 1st minute of this song can only be called original and world-class, and is provides total Nervosa thrash metal evocation. @ the 1:07 mark there is a totally KICK*ASS*METAL riff written and executed by Prika Amaral, it is because of guitar work like this, that Prika Amaral will forever be remembered as the most important, original, and magnificent guitarist of the 21st Century. Nervosa is not retro-this or retro-that, but a band that will survive the test of time. I am totally addicted to this song, because of Prika Amaral awesome guitar tones. The solo is @ the 3:14 mark, and is pretty mind-blowing and pretty stellar and world-class

Vicitm of Yourself is up next. And starts of with a totally original riff a PRIKA AMARAL riff, you can tell in a micro-second who Prika Amaral is over the other 92, 999 guitarist who also play metal. What one notices immediately about Prika Amaral is that Prika is a one-of-a-kind and a true original. @ The 48 second mark a killer song writing part takes place. Victim of Yourself the song, has one of the greatest riffs not just of the decade 2010, but of all time.

Uranio Em Nos…aka via translation means something similar to “Uranium in” * And this song starts with an AIR RAID siren. And that is just songwriting genius. The CD’s closer has a lot of excellent metal vibes because it is sung in Nervosa native language giving the song a nice personalized aspect from the songwriters point of view. World Class job on this song and the whole album.

I love Nervosa

and

I am a NERVOSA-thrasher 4 life !!!!!!

For those unaware the term gothic was part of classical music history, hundreds of years before the gothic rock trend, as a gothic metal-age publication, that may sound offensive to call the gothic rock trend, a trend..

But in all reality the best gothic asthectics are found in gothic metal, symphonic gothic metal, classical gothic music, symphonic black metal.

 

Gothic does not concern itself with being GOTHIC metal. 

 The concept of Poser and True Metal does not exist in the gothic culture or the gothic genre. 

 I still dress like i did during the Power Metal-age the pre-Thrash Metal age of heavy metal.

Those of us Gothic Metal insane metal total fanatic who gets our gothic metal addiction, from actual gothic heay metal, know that the best gothic metal has nothing to do with the gothic rock trend. Throwing metal on top of gothic rock, does not make Gothic Metal.

Winston Chuchhill said  “The farther backward you can look, the farther forward you can see.” And the idea of this article is for the gothics who do not want to slip into the Symphonic Metal side of things, or the doom -death side of things, or become part of the Occult Rock style

 

http://www.occultrock.com/

 

I have nothing against any of those styles, i listen to all styles of music, because i collect certain authentic aesthetics across the whole classical/ avant-garde/ rock/ metal spectrum.

 

The definition of  Gothic noting or pertaining to a style of literature characterized by a gloomy setting, grotesque, mysterious, or violent events, and an atmosphere of degeneration and decay”

 

So with that as the working defintion either you know what that aesthetic is or you do not.

Gothic Metal will never die, because there is always something wrong in the world somewhere.

 

I will support what ever grows out of gothic metal, no matter what, but i still search the World high and low, for the best of all things dark metal, horror metal and gothic metal. I love a gothic album the most out of all the 1300 genres in music to choose from.

 

But the purpose of this article is for those who have a alligance to this genre to have a gothic asthetic …. And being gothic metal to the bone and gothic metal to the core.

 

The Doors is one of the 1st hard rock /heavy metal  artist to be descirbed in the music press as being GOTHIC, for various reasons, and for this fact every GOTHIC METAL/ Gothic Publication should be celebrating THE DOORS first 6 albums and choice live albums and choice Best of albums, in the same breath as Celtic Frost “Into the Pandemonium”

On this TOP 100 ALBUM LIST — THE DOORS BELONG ON THIS LIST JUST As much as every artist on this list.

Below is from the Haxans news article

I included the famous Metalstorm Gothic Metal editorial from 2006, because i have some of the same taste in what i seek in gothic metal. The article has alot of fuck ups, because the 1st time i seen the word gothic was in a classical music history book, under the subject matter Romanticism, the book hit the shelves in 1970 way before the terms was used for the Doors album review to capture the vibe of the debut album

 

 

 

 

THE HAXANS, the goth-pop-infused power duo

featuring Ash Costello (NEW YEARS DAY) on vocals

and Matt Montgomery (ROB ZOMBIE) on vocals and

guitar, will release its debut album, “Party

Monsters”, on Friday, October 13 via Another Century Records.

 

The music video for the track “Lights Out”, taken

from “Party Monsters”, can be seen below.

Costello states: “For years we have felt like mad

scientists, secretly working on our music hidden

away from everyone else… and we are so excited to

finally share our creation with the world!

“I genuinely love what we have made and cannot wait for you to hear it!

 

“We are two weirdos that hope we can call upon all

the rest of the weirdos in the world to join in on our fun.”

 

Montgomery adds: “Finally it’s party time! We

figure after a few years of building this Frankenstein

in the garage, we should let it get out and walk

around a little. Maybe someone will try to beat it up,

maybe someone else will fall in love with it. Who

knows? But it’s out there and it’s loose, and you

never know where it will turn up!

 

“This record is a party for everyone else like us. The

cover, the songtitles, the energy and the colors of

this record are going to pull together an amazing

cross section of people. It’s just everything we like

and celebrate every day, but amped up to eleven! It’s

got a kids-jumping-on-the-bed-while-the-parents-

are-out-of-the-room feeling to it to me, which is

kind of what this record was for us.”

 

Montgomery previously said that the “secret

ingredient” behind THE HAXANS was “having two

people that are on the same wavelength. You’re

painting with the same colors. We’ve got the same

color palette. We’re, like, ‘Purple?’ ‘You mean this

purple?’ And we go, ‘Yeah, that’s exactly the purple

we were looking for.’

First and Last and Always”, to name a specific metal genre as gothic, which makes the oh-so renowned and overabused gothic metal term, this specific metal genre MUST have references and influences from the gothic rock/dark wave scene from the 80s. Apparently, without any second thought and a shadow of doubt, many bands from this so-called commercial and big scene are not gothic metal because they have not a single reference from the gothic rock/dark wave scene of the 80s. It really is something funny for metalheads that know nothing about this scene to speak about gothic music. But what is even more funny is the fact that part of the metal scene dislikes goths and when you ask them “which people do you refer to as goths?” you get the answer “those people, man, that paint their eyes black and listen to Marilyn Manson endlessly”, even from this you can get that a big part of the metal scene really has nothing to do in knowledge and experience about the gothic subculture, its bands and its audience. And thus this over-confusion passes in the gothic metal scene.

You see, the gothic subculcture has all these chicks dressed in black, with the cute faces, the beautiful make up and stuff, yes, I know, they are beautiful, I adore them as well, but, sadly, when a female-fronted metal band starts sounding a bit more symphonic/atmospheric or even a bit melancholic and has a female singer, preferably cute that stands as the front of the band and wears all these beautiful scarlet or velvet or black dresses with flowers and stuff, people start referring to this band as gothic metal, for no reason apparently. A female singer that has a more obscure and “poetic” dress-code won’t make a band a gothic one, apparently, it’s the music that matters, not the supposed dress-code. And so we come to bands like Evanescence, Lacuna Coil, Within Temptation, Epica, After Forever and so on, well, these bands have nothing to do, more or less each one of them (or used to have a slight reference but they have nothing to do anymore), with the gothic metal genre, the only common thing they have as bands is that they are female-fronted, does this make them gothic metal? No, for fuck’s sake no! Ok, they have their own atmosphere each one of them, they have some strong female vocalists, some good tunes, others more others less, but that’s all people; no gothic elements, no gothic metal.

If you want some bands with female vocalists that actually play gothic metal then you should definitely check Tristania of the first era (who can deny that “Widow’s Weeds” has gothic rock elements? I’ll give the answer, no-one can because these elements are present in the guitar work; and let’s not forget the gothic rock guest male vocals on “Angellore” ), Theatre Of Tragedy of the first three releases, yes, they are gothic metal, and not because Liv Kristine used to wear black dresses and have that absolute female gothic look, just check the music, apparently gothic metal, then come Trail Of Tears, their first releases are also strong and gothic metal, really good work and it seems to me at times that the gothic metal scene including female vocals blossomed in Norway, judging from the bands I mentioned above. And of course I shouldn’t skip to mention Sirenia, the band Morten Veland formed after he left Tristania, another wonderful gothic metal act, with intense gothic rock elements, even the hat in the vein of The Sisters Of Mercy/The Fields Of The Nephilim is present, hehe (if you don’t believe me ask Mr. Veland and check Elusive’s debut album, “Destination Zero”, to see which are his influences; for the history, Elusive are a rising gothic rock act from Norway and Veland played the guitars on this album) and of course I shouldn’t skip to mention Beseech, they have female vocals as well in their compositions, but they are a 50%-50% female-male fronted band now, with balanced male and female vocals. Just check their first two releases, pure romantic gothic/doom metal with The Fields Of The Nephilim references being too intense, both in guitar parts filled with gothic rock riffing and vocal lines in which the first singer of the band sounds like a reincarnation of Carl McCoy. And of course I shouldn’t skip to mention As Divine Grace from Finland, they used to be a romantic doom/death metal act but with years they became more gothic metal oriented, with female vocals, a really strong band that sadly disbanded.

You know, a band to be called gothic metal must have references from the gothic rock/dark wave scene as I said above, which means, Christian Death (with Rozz Williams on the vocals of course, hehehe! Or Valor of “Atrocities”, it was an awesome album, i have to admit it! And why not “Sex & Drugs & Jesus Christ”, their last really strong album with Valor!), The Mission, The Sisters Of Mercy, The Fields Of The Nephilim, Bauhaus, early The Cult, Siouxsie And The Banshees, Clan Of Xymox, Virgin Prunes, early Dead Can Dance etc must be present, with each band sticking to its own references. And what the history has shown to me is that whenever gothic rock acts started turning heavier and more metal-oriented they made far better work from gothic metal acts, because gothic rockers really know what to do, they have the feeling in their blood, it’s flowing, they know how to express it correctly and make it sound heavier if they want to enter a heavier sound stage. And of course I will mention some gothic rock/metal acts and first and above all one of the best gothic acts of the 90s that most of you don’t know, DREADFUL SHADOWS, listen to them to feel the decadence, the sorrow, the pain, the gothic aesthetic, the gothic feeling from a band that released four great albums and with every album it tended to sound steps further, reaching “The Cycle” where more modern references made their appearance. After Dreadful Shadows sadly disbanded Sven Friedrich and Norman Selbig of Dreadful Shadows formed Zeraphine, another wonderful gothic rock/metal act with a more modern approach of course. Another fabulous gothic rock/metal act have to be Scream Silence, at times tending to sound like Dreadful Shadows, but they tended to perfect their own sound, their first two album are the most metallic ones and the other three are heavy still, but more gothic rock definitely; at times they tend to have a doomy feeling as well. Secret Discovery is a good band as well, moving in pure gothic rock in their early years and from a moment and on they started sounding a lot more metallic. Also, Love Like blood is a gothic rock band ,one of the best if you ask me, they have released some really strong opuses during the first half of the 90s, in the second half of the 90s from a moment and on they started sounding heavy and “Snakekiller” is a good gothic metal/rock album. Take Garden of Delight now, one of the best gothic rock acts of the 90s, they released in 7 years 7 albums with 7 songs each one of them, they disbanded afterwards, after the first circle had ended. They came back in the 00s, stronger, heavier, more powerful, but above all gothic rock. After 4 albums they formed Lutherion and they definitely are gothic metal/rock now, sounding really heavy, gothic rock-oriented and with an electro touch as well! Most and above all I shouldn’t forget to mention the metal approach of Carl McCoy, first with The Nefilim in the second half of the 90s and recently with the dynamic come back of the Fields Of The Nephilim. “Zoon” of the Nefilim was a brilliant piece of thrash/death metal blended with strong doses of gothic rock in the renowned McCoy n’ Fields vein and “Mourning Sun” of The Fields Of The Nephilim is an album of pure gothic rock/metal, a really strong release to show to the gothic metal scene who can rule the scene in no time. And let’s mention NFD, a The Nefilim oriented project, heavy enough and always gothic rock and another project from members of The Nefilim, Saints Of Eden, gothic rock with heavy doses of metal and electronic/industrial elements, sounding really heavy and definitely really strong!

Now concerning some gothic metal acts I should mention Evereve of their first era with Tom Schedotschenko, heart-rending, twisted, mourning gothic metal from the pits of Hell, utterly desolate and melancholic, with the ideal references! After the suicide of the singer a new singer came on board and they released an easier album, gothic metal still, afterwards they started moving in more electronic soundscapes. Darkseed as well, they definitely had gothic-oriented references in albums like “Diving Into Darkness” and “Give Me Light” etc, a good band definitely. Paradise Lost OF COURSE and no matter how much doomsters hit their asses on the wall and point out that “Gothic” is doom/death metal I will always be there to be a pain in the ass and their closed mind to point out that it is one of the first pure gothic metal releases, not because of the name, “Gothic”, but because of the music. Listen carefully, the gothic rock references on the guitars are too obvious, where Sisters Of Mercy stepped Paradise Lost found water. The orchestrations have a Celtic Frost sense from the “Into The Pandemonium” era and a dark wave aesthetic as well along with the fragile female vocals that seem to have come out of the 80s dark wave scene. Sure, it has a doom sense, but think about it more. Paradise Lost continued as a gothic metal act after “Shades Of God” (which was doom metal at all costs) releasing many fabulous albums like “Draconian times”, “Icon”, “One Second”, “Paradise Lost” etc, one of the best acts of the gothic metal scene. I shouldn’t skip Lacrimosa, one of the most important acts of this very scene; i have heard/read that they are progressive gothic metal, this statement always sounded funny to me from people that really have absolutely nothing to do with the scene. Tilo Wolf is a pure genius, from the gothic-death rock/dark wave oriented first releases of Lacrimosa to the historic moment when Anne Nurmi entered the band and Lacrimosa started becoming metal, gothic metal of course! Because the references remained, the doses of classical music became too obvious and one of the characteristic parts of the sound of the band. Generally they kept the Lacrimosa feeling alive, they just became one of the most quality, recognisable and best acts of the scene. Lacrimas Profundere, from a romantic doom/death metal act they started slowly and steadily incorporating in their sound gothic references reaching nowadays where they are a goth n’ roll act, slightly metal, more of a rock band, gothic rock with a poser attitude. And since I mentioned the poser attitude of Lacrimas Profundere I shouldn’t skip at all to mention The 69 Eyes, a non-metal band, they are goth n’ roll as well, at some times offering more more romantic gothic rock like on “Paris Kills”, at others more hard rock/gothic rock having several references from the 80s/early 90s. Where the Sisters Of Mercy left “Vision Thing” and The Cult left their releases Jyrki, Jussi and their companions stole them and found out many useful things for the now-sound of The 69 Eyes and Jyrki where Ian Astbury and the singer of LA Guns stood proud stole a bit of their pride to form his stage presence. So no, The 69 Eyes are not metal, poser gothic rock or goth n’ roll yes, definitely. A! Beyond Dawn’s “Pity Love” shouldn’t be missing from here as well, an album having the decadence of doom, references from the doom metal scene and of course intense The Sisters Of Mercy passages, both in structure and guitar parts, but always tending to present them through their very own and unique avant-garde prism. I shouldn’t forget to mention, just for the history, that Beyond Dawn during that period were supporting the Sisters Of Mercy at some of their shows, not a coincidence, is it? I shouldn’t skip Tiamat, they had a good course changing their sound from album to album, progressing positively, and as you all noticed they had their gothic rock-driven moments as well. Their latest release to date “Prey” was a metallic gothic rock worship with Edlund’s haunting vocals entrancing the atmosphere, “Skeleton Skeletron” had also a gothic rock air, quite modern in sound, good enough but nothing awesome and “A Deeper Kind Of Slumber” which was a mixture of psychedelic rock with gothic rock and stuff, good work! And some of you that may know, Johan Edlund has a gothic rock oriented band, Lucyfire, good stuff. Also, The Babylon Whores, not many know them, but they are awesome, a metal-driven Christian Death worship band, they know what they are doing, really good act! Another bright example of a band that injected intense 80s gothic/dark elements have to be Portugal’s finest and most known act, Moonspell, with bands like “The Antidote”, “Sin/Pexado” (a very underrated album), “Darkness And Hope” and “Irreligious”, they have to be one of those bands that interpret gothic metal in a really good and personal manner! Also, a new band around that had quite an impressive course so far with their two releases are definitely The Vision Bleak, travelling through the corridors of nightmares, drama, horror and gothic decadence they offer a new and fresh air to the scene! Also, Yearning from Finland are doing a good job with their esoteric and beautifully adorned by sadness and esoteric emotions gothic/doom metal. Last but not least Kreator’s “Endorama” is a thousand times more gothic metal than all those so-called gothic metal bands that are being referred as gothic metal by the silly music press and the audience that knows nothing about what is gothic, doesn’t “Endorama” sound so gothic metal to you? Change scene! It’s so simple!

The problem with the gothic metal scene doesn’t end here, there are two more problems with the scene except for the female-fronted bands that are mostly being referred by both press and audience as gothic metal and of course i’m referring to part of the Visual Kei scene and the Suomi Metal scene with bands tending to sound romantic, melancholic or suicidal, moving in metal/rock soundscapes with common road on their course being the melancholy factor. Concerning the Visual Kei scene with bands like Moi Dix Mois, Malice Mizer and stuff, they have an intense gothic aesthetic in their appearance, but this is the most gothic part of their existence, their music apart from some keyboard-driven really dark passages has nothing to do with the gothic rock/dark wave scene and the Bauhaus references in those bands that i have read somewhere is definitely non-existent and i know Bauhaus really well to not recognise them in a band. Well, part of the Visual Kei that is being referred as gothic metal could be the Japanese option of gothic metal, somethng different, something “foreign” to the European scene/audience, so I won’t be absolute in this case. I have to admit, anytime with the hand on my heart, that those Visual Kei bands are more gothic than all the other female-fronted or Suomi “we’re supposed to be gothic” metal bands will ever be, both in reality and dreams. And let’s move to the Suomi metal scene, believe me, I used to be a huge fan of this very specifc scene supporting bands like HIM, Entwine, For My Pain, Poisonblack, Charon, Sentenced, Lullacry, To Die For etc, I still support Entwine, HIM and To Die For because all those three are bands that have a lot to offer in my opinion, but really, where did you people find all these gothic elements in their compositions? You can always inform me because I’m craving to know more about gothic music and I would love to find out where all these elements hide and I can’t find them. I had read somewhere that Sentenced were gothic metal and on their latest releases they became gothic rock, HA HA! I mean, how funny is that? Only a metalhead that knows nothing about the gothic scene would ever say that, and a metalhead was indeed the person who said that. Ignorance is bad, definitely bad, and in this case ignorance has caused a lot of harm, something that disgusts me seeing it going on more and more day by day.

Well, I got bored writing and I think you’ll get bored reading too, so I will stop for now, but I will have to warn all of you i-know-it-all metalheads (to avoid misunderstandings, I’m not referring to every single metalhead, but to a specific part of it) that will give my article a shot, “if the truth hurts, prepare for pain”. Kisses!
