OK so latley I've been hanging around with a goth, she's been asking me to show her the kind of music that I listen to and I've played her some psytrance and she was like "but this is goth without singing"... I was like WTF are you taking about??? Then she showed me some stuff, I must say I'm pretty impressed, what do you guys think? Know of anything else like this?

Ask her why she prefers a music with so ultracheesy vocals.

 

 

The music can be good but the lyrics make me just facepalm.

 

hehe it's funny you guys mention that because when I played her psytrance she was like "ok, this would be good IF IT HAD SOME VOCALS IN IT"... I guess it's just a different way of percieving the music.

 

Reminds me of newer Juno Reactor, except not as "cinematic." :rolleyes:

 

didn't think about it but not that you mention it, it DOES sound pretty "Juno-ish", I guess we now know where he gets his inspiration from ;)

I love these seasonal darkers who love gore and biohazard / nuclear disasters :) I can just imagine how "cool" would they look while they hair is falling off while their guts are being boiled due to high radiation levels :ph34r: I bet they would be the first ones to run and hide in the underground vaults if anything similar happened. 

 

Concerning the music, it's ultra-cheesy, reminds me of VIVA TV in late 90's ;)

The specific genre we're talking about is Synthpop/Futurepop. I like it a lot, initially because of the melodies, after some time you get used to and are able to appreciate vocals too however, as long as they go not too screamy. :D

 

Some nice fellows in this style:

 

*Mind.In.A.Box

*Fractured

*VNV Nation (obviously!)

*Asphyxia

*Apoptygma Berzerk (old stuff...their new music is like some kind of poprock)

*Suicide Commando

*Flesh Field

That stuff is EBM or even Industrial, I wouldn't call it goth. Goa dips on those genres among others btw :) not the other way around.

 

I love this tune:

Kinda ebm kinda industrial kinda noize kinda aggro, there are many related subgenres in there.

 

This is more liked  ;) Great tune  :ph34r:

What I particulary like in this kind of tunes is the massive snares they use...like in that tune Starry posted :).

 

Another one, without creepy vocals :P , maybe too cheezy for some though:

 

 

That snare on 1:17 is so smashing :lol: , I want to use them in my Nitzhonot tracks! I believe it's some kind of old reworked Disco snare...dunno...

Goddamn nostalgia. Before I learned of psy/goa I did always like electronic, whenever I found something that was electronic and sounded at least ok I checked it out(A LONG TIME AGOOOOOoooOOoo)

VNV Nation - Electronaut Live

EPIC, just.. E P I C. The best electronic track I had heard to date back then, I was in love. It's still a stomper tbh.

 

btw, synthpop? Freezepop!!!

Goddamn that brings memories. :lol:

Haha YEA

I have been around this scene in Seattle and I get so sick of the ultra-dumb lyrics that I just can't listen for more than a minute or two.

I am a purist that believes the underground should have smart lyrics or none at all.

Last year Juno Reactor toured with the EBM cult-act Laibach. Most cheesy vocals ever (Eins, zwei, drei, vier, komm schon Baby tanz mit mir - One, two, three, four, come on baby dance with me).

 

One thing I also dislike is the kind of imaginery and symbolics a lot of those bands use. Always makes a lil militaristic impression to me. Some of the music posted here sounds to me like mobilization music for the war of commies agains nazis. But that's just me.

 

Also I don't know jackshit about all of that. So, sorry for my sweeping blow here ;)

Ah well, it's all just music, personally I don't pay attention to often to the texts...i do believe stuff such as VNV Nation tries and achieves in providing strong lyrics though.

 

@ Penzoline: Yeah baby, that Electronaut track is tha shit! One of my personal favorites too!

Velvet acid christ actually deliberately copies goa trance though.

 

I didn't like his stuff, it's like ok... it's goa... with a minute and a half breakdown yet the tracks only go for 4 minutes. wtf.

 

I think it's more that EBM influenced goa trance AND a lot of ebm takes heavy influence from euro trance.

 

And they're both sortof dark... so you end up with some similar things. You could certainly mix some EBM stuff into a goa trance set though. Suicide commando's 90s stuff is good btw.
