  • Deathrock

    Goth and punk rock spawned many subgenres when it was in full swing, and even while it was first emerging in the late 1970’s. One of the subgenres that was re-introduced while Goth rock was developing was Deathrock. One of the things that make distinguishing Deathrock from Goth rock so difficult, is because it overlaps with it, naturally, being a spin-off of Goth rock, as well as other sub-genres of Goth rock, that are basically fusions of other styles. Deathrock itself is a fusion of punk, post punk, and horror. So its closest related subgenres are Psychobilly, and horror punk; Psychobilly is a fusion of punk, rockabilly, and horror, while horror punk is a fusion of punk, doo-wop and horror. It sounds the exact same, doesn’t it? I mean, as far as really being able to tell something apart, if you played a Deathrock song, then a Psychobilly song, then a horror punk song, without knowing which was which, there’s a good chance you wouldn’t be able to tell them apart, purely by their sound. Of course, that does depend on how fanatical you are. Continue reading ‘Deathrock’

    Doom Metal

    Black Sabbath was the main influence of Doom Metal, in the early to mid 1980’s, when the sub genre first emerged. However, later on in the eighties, more Doom Metal artists emerged from around the world, that had not been influenced by Black Sabbath, nor hard they experienced the rise of their popularity; so Ozzy […]

    Dark Wave

    Dark Wave was first used as a descriptive term for the early Goth rock beginnings, but before the term “Goth rock” was ever used outside of the UK. Dark Wave described darker, and gloomier post-punk, of the late 70’s, and New Wave, of the 80’s. For the French, it was Coldwave, and Synthpop, or Electrowave […]

    EBM

    Electronic Body Music, –known as EBM, because …you know, it’s shorter, –is exactly what its name implies. EBM is a dance-able form of electronica, blended together from Electropunk from Germany, and Industrial from England that emerged around 1984. The genre was influenced by artists like  Deutsch-Amerikanische Freundschaft, Cabaret Voltaire and Throbbing Gristle, and some of […]

    Foxcore

    Foxcore is a genre of music that emerged from the alternative rock scene. Foxcore got its name from Thurston Moore, the singer and lead guitarist of Sonic Youth, when he was trying to describe bands that were associated with the Riot Grrrl genre, but did not quite fit in to that particular scene. Foxcore is […]

    Grunge Rock

    Grunge music originated in the 1980’s by a few different bands around the area of Seattle, Washington, and is a different style of alternative rock. It was inspired by a few different forms of metal and punk music, and is identified mostly by angry lyrics, many of which were directed at the general form of […]

    Horror Rock

    Horror rock refers to any number of different bands, styles, sub-genres or mainstream genres. It’s usually used as a name for Death Rock, –and that’s pretty confusing too, since Death Rock later became Gothic Rock, and then the traditional Death Rock was extracted from Gothic Rock, and is now in the process of ressurrection, –Horror […]

    Glam Rock

    Glam Rock is also known as Glitter Rock, but by whom, I’ve no idea, and must herewith assume that this is in the UK, being as that most claim that Glam Rock is a mainly European musical movement. Glam Rock came in, as the hippies moved out, in the early ’70’s. Glam Rock was essentially […]

    Endless Rituals – Snuttock

    ENDLESS RITUALS – SNUTTOCK Music, maybe more than anything else in the waking world, takes us away. We listen and journey into some new place. Perhaps on parade, or in the midst of some war between gods, into a bedroom (with or without some flavor of kink). Arriving, we recognize where we have arrived—even in […]

    Music To Live By

    The other day, while driving, I noticed that I usually turn my mp3 player towards a couple specific tracks when I’ve just screamed out at the window at the smelly homeless guy who has chosen the exactly wrong moment to cross the street… this usually happens when I’m already ten minutes late for work. It […]
