  Gothic music - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Gothic Music is a relatively confusing term, in that it is necessary to distinguish it as used to mean goth music, whilst also being used to completely expell this meaning.
Gothic Music is a distinct term referring to music that fits within the classic meaning of the word gothic, rather than holding any connection to the modern day goth subculture.
The widest genre of music that is considered a part of gothic music is the genre gothic metal.

Punk is most influential to the gothic rock division of gothic music, with bands such as The Cure (1978) and Siouxsie and the Banshees (1976) first lumped musically into a post-punk category.
Gothic rock is characterized by the music of Christian Death (who were the first notable US death rock outfit), The Sisters of Mercy and Bauhaus, for example.
Ethereal music is most characterized by soprano female vocals combined with almost classical or folk type instrumentation (acoustic guitar, piano, cello, flute, violin along with or instead of the usual bass, lead guitar, and drums) which creates a surreal, angelic or otherworldly effect e.g.

MUSIC HATH CHARMS TO SOOTHE THE SAVAGE BEAST...guess that includes twits like me, too.
My taste in music is in what it is saying, and, what/how does the music itself, combined with the vocals, give a name and face to the things inside me. It can be rock-techno-Monster Magnet-Rob Zombie- on up through 100% GREAT christian artists like RAY BOLTZ (even if christian music ain't yer' thing-check him out).
So MANY artists like these, Sophya, and many others, produce music that is ~Gothic~ in the contemplative genre without coming off as metal-punk-etc....romantic in it's unique way, it touches emotional areas of each person and gives them face and form.

 In Music We Trust - Gothic/Industrial Music in the Media: Some Comments Related to the Tragedy in Colorado   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-27)
Their portrayal of the Gothic and Industrial music culture was at best, ignorant, and some "tabloid" news shows even used such bands as Rammstein and Marilyn Manson as a back-drop for added sensationalism.
I decided to ask some of my friends and associates who are immersed in the Gothic music scene what their feelings are; not only of the media portrayal of the Gothic culture, but also any backlash or censorship this might have created for them, and their thoughts on the association of this genre with violence.
I asked Gustav (94.7 KNRK radio) what his thoughts on the situation were, and he tells me that the entire Gothic scene, whether it's created from music, or attire, of the mere fascination with death and other things morbid is not something that directly endorses any sort of violence toward another person.

 BRGoths - Subgenres of Gothic/Industrial Music
While it is true that musical genres are purely convention, the convention is what it is because it is useful -- we can convey the type of music we like without relying on our listener's knowledge of individual songs or bands, for example.
Finally, names of specific musical genres are sometimes abused by using these same names to refer to a broader, more general category of music including but not limited to that specific genre.
Where Gothic music is dark and sinister in mood, Industrial music is cold, mechanical and bleakly futuristic.

The band's musical sound fits into one of the gothic music types -- their music creates a certain eerie or surreal sort of mood.
This does not necessarily make a band Gothic, but it does lead many people to believe the band is Gothic, whether they qualify in any of the previous areas or not.
Nonetheless, music reviewers and marketers like to classify music to help people get the feel for what the music sounds like for those who have never heard it before.

 Amazon.co.uk: Brian - Symphony No 1, \'Gothic\': Music   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-27)
I hear music rooted in the English lyric tradition; vocals that resembles Gregorian then Russian Orthodox chant; hints of Delius; pure nineteenth century romanticism and also the kind of complex, dissonant choral singing and ferocious war music that belongs to the twentieth century alone.
Anyone familiar with British music of the period the 'Gothic' was written in will recognize this as a British work: Except in the most idiosyncratic places (of which there is no shortage), the work is British to the core, with passages that alternately remind one of an entire host of such composers.
To be sure, the 'Gothic' is a huge, sprawling work, seemingly evolving as a series of tableaux full of original themes and orchestrational touches, as well as choral writing that was years ahead of its time in its harmonic daring and vocal density.

 Scary Music and Gothic Horror Music from Midnight Syndicate
Featuring their unique blending of haunting orchestral music and carefully crafted sound effects, the band has become one of the premiere artists in their field and one of the largest producers of Halloween music and scary music in the world.
In fact, the "scary music" is quite stale when compared to "Realm of Shadows" and "Gates of Delirium." Although a few of "Vampyre's" sepulchral melodies beautifully express themselves, the rest of the track list is dull and predictable; basically, most of this album is one long dirge.
The magic behind the scary music is to create "soundtracks for the mind as well as the movie that has never been made." However, all of Midnight Syndicate's work is simply prime material waiting to be tapped for future film scores.

 The Gothic Music Handbook
The music itself is hard to describe -- it's guitar-driven with liberal doses of feedback and random changes in direction; Peter Murphy's vocals swing from tortured howls to deep and resonant chants (of course, Daniel Ash and David J. supplied vocals for many of the songs too, particularly on Burning From The Inside).
Musically, the first two albums are pretty much in the tradition of Wayne's parts for First and Last and Always, then slowly but surely heading in a more mainstream direction.
Their music is both richer and sillier than LandR's in many ways; ToT seem to be using the pop song as a vehicle for some rather daring experimentation, and many of these experiments succeeded well enough to force us goths to admit that pop music can in fact be very, very good.

I'm not sure if this is correct or not, but i think "gothic" music can be found in several genres of metal.
Gothic Music, or more so "Gothic Rock" though is something completely different and bands that would fit that category, would be the likes of "The Cure", "Sisters of Mercy", “Bauhuas” and "Souixsee and the Banshees" to name a few.
I rarely like whole genres of music- in these lists alone, I know I hate Cannibal Corpse [like being stabbed with a fork in the ear], From Autumn to Ashes [I thought they were nu-metal crap until a few moments ago] and Dimmu Borgir [I liked one song on their CD, the rest was bland].
