Gothic Skins

As dreadfully dark as they are wonderfully romantic, gothic rock artists emerged from a wave of the post-punk genre. Outside of some more prominent names, such as The Cure and Joy Division, gothic rock has incorporated a handful of artists who used their own dark, romanticized tones to shape the genre from then to now. Today, we look at the general history of the sub-genre and hear how it has flowed through music on an international, national and local (Ottawa) scale. Embrace your gothic skins and ride the dark, romantic waves with me! What is Gothic Rock? Canadian Bands - National Velvet National Velvet - "Nostalgia ain't what it used to be..."
