This week’s episode is another centered around gothic cinema (or at least movies most goths would appreciate.) Sticking with our form of discussing three movies, we decided to choose some movies that we consider to be classics that are not as watched as much as some other movies that have been adopted by the gothic subculture. We decided to review Suspiria, Ed Wood, and Only Lovers Left Alive. We discuss the beauty and value of each of these films, any possible flaws, and their appeal to the gothic subculture.
In this week’s episode of GothCast we take a look at perhaps one of the most influential bands in the deathrock scene, Christian Death. In particular, we discuss the first three albums of their career which feature Rozz Williams as the lead vocalist. In addition, we felt it necessary to talk about the band Super Heroines in reference to Christian Death and their role in the formation of Christian Death.
In this episode we continue our review of the The Cure’s career as we discuss the trajectory of their music over the course of the mid to late eighties. We begin by our review with The Top  and end with Disintegration . This half of the decade was a huge critical and commercial success for the band and generated many hits that are still popular on modern radio today. It was also a time where the band was defining their signature sound that many think of when discussing The Cure.
This week, we decided to change gears a little bit and do a film review episode. There is no denying that cinema has played a massively influential role in gothic music, fashion, and the entire subculture. Subsequently, we wanted to pay respect to three of our favorite films associated with gothic subculture. In this particular episode we take a look at Blade Runner , The Crow , and Let the Right One . This is probably one of the only episodes where Dr Sanders and I (Robbie Gore) don’t completely disagree on everything.
In this week’s episode of GothCast, we discuss the career of one of Gothic Rock’s most influential artists, Bauhaus. One of the first band’s associated with the term “gothic rock”, Bauhaus took their music into a much darker direction than most bands of the time. Their debut album In The Flat Field is still considered a classic, does the same hold true for their other releases? In this episode we take a look at each of their studio albums, live releases, and of course the single Bela Lugosi’s Dead.
It’s time to talk about the always controversial Sisters Of Mercy. We discuss each of their studio releases from First and Last and Always to Vision Thing and even their compilations albums from the nineties. The Sisters are a band hard to disassociate from front-man Andrew Eldritch and the discussion does delve into his infamous decisions throughout the band’s career. We hope you enjoy this at times very heated discussion.
