Gothic rock (also referred to as goth rock or simply goth) is a musical subgenre of post-punk and alternative rock that formed during the late 1970s. Gothic rock bands grew from the strong ties they had to the English punk rock and emerging post-punk scenes. The genre itself was defined as a separate movement from punk rock during the early 1980s largely due to the significant stylistic divergences of the movement; gothic rock, as opposed to punk, combines dark, often keyboard-heavy music with introspective and depressing lyrics. Notable gothic rock bands include Bauhaus, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Cocteau Twins, The Cure, The Sisters of Mercy, Virgin Prunes, Sex Gang Children, Christian Death, The Damned, Southern Death Cult, This Mortal Coil, Flesh for Lulu, UK Decay, The Mission, Specimen, Theatre of Hate, Theatre of Ice, Xmal Deutschland, The Danse Society, Dead Can Dance, Clan of Xymox, 45 Grave, Gene Loves Jezebel, Kommunity FK, Fields of the Nephilim and Alien Sex Fiend, among many others. Gothic rock gave rise to a broader goth subculture that includes clubs, fashion and numerous publications that grew in popularity in the 1980s.

Follow me: Sígueme: GROUP: Nightwish (Finland) SONG: The Phantom of the Opera SINGER: Tarja Turunen GENRE: Symphonic metal ALBUM: Century Child (2002) TRACK: 09 ENGLISH - ENGLISH - ENGLISH "The Phantom of the Opera" is a song from the stage musical of the same name, composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber, sung by Sarah Brightman and Michael Crawford, lyrics written by Charles Hart and Richard Stilgoe, and additional lyrics by Mike Batt. What makes this particular song unique is its unusual hard rock style, while most of the songs in the musical have a more operatic style. Early in the musical's production, Andrew Lloyd Webber met with Jim Steinman, who described "The Phantom of the Opera" as a rock song invading an opera house. This is what inspired the hard rock style of the song, which influenced all of the rock-based instruments in the song including drums and electric guitar. The song "The Phantom of the Opera" was covered in 2002 by the Finnish symphonic power metal quintet Nightwish and released on the album Century Child. This particular version of the song, with Tarja Turunen (soprano) singing Christine's part and Marco Hietala (baritone/tenor) singing the part of The Phantom, is set in a different register to the original version written by Andrew Lloyd Webber. On the recorded version, the female vocalisation at the end of the song is slightly different from the original, however, when the song is performed live, the vocalisation is the same <b>...</b>

With their sixth release, "Ave End", LACRIMAS PROFUNDERE celebrate their return with beautiful and emotive Gothic Rock reminescent of HIM. A strong, dark, and graceful album presents tracks caught between melancholy and aggression that skillfully retain their depth. Christopher's voice not only lends a dark and soulfoul edge to this release, but also conveys deep, strong feelings. "Ave End" represents something unique, as no one track sounds like the other. Its melodies keep the listener captive. No hope without despair - the perfect soundtrack for rainy summer days and cold autumn nights.
