Most bands using those elements compose them on their own, rather than sampling. On the first Cadaveria album, the intro to the opening track "Spell" seems to be sampled from an Opera record, although I'm not well-versed enough about Opera to tell you the source. See related link at the bottom. ...

It really depends on what you consider "positive." Gothic music,  for the most part, is much darker than "normal" music you hear on  the radio. It usually talks about death, gloom, and darkness, and  everything of that nature in a Victorian/orchestral type of style.  But if you are gothic that's...
Definately. And they can like animals, too!

Because both emo's and goths have crazy hair, wear black, and are sorta dark.

There's no subgenres of goth, like many would have you believe, however certain bands within the goth genre have different tendencies (Killing Joke and Alien Sex Fiend lean Industrial, Fields of the Nephelim and Nosferatu lean hard rock, The Cure and Siouxsie and The Banshees lean pop). Simply put,...

It really depends on what legion or if they're fighting or training.
Yes there is. Bauhaus and Sisters of Mercy for example.
"New" Goth; current regeneration of the Gothic subculture.
Oh NOO. It's happy music. Except for some of it. But he tries to be positive:)
Well, it depends on the person. Of course goths don't have anything against themselves. Usually people dislike goths because they're different and when it comes to the human mind, its common for us to relate different with bad. I personally love goths and see them as very interesting people. Many...

Some facts about the Gothic genre are that it combines elements of  romance and horror and it focuses on family curses or the  supernatural. This literature is popular and includes a spookiness  with various elements including occult events and suspense.
Appropriate for what, exactly? If it's appropriate to good taste in music, probably not. Content-wise, they're not a particularly "happy" band, so if appropriate to you means something along the lines of the Barney theme song, then probably not.
i found out in a video with him on ny ink megan was introducing him she said something about her and chris went on a few dates
Goth has started as a very popular subculture in the 1980's. There are still some Goths around, but it is not that common as it was before. Nowadays, many people still belong to the Goth subculture, but there is not as many of them as it was in the 1980's.

  He is a little bit !!! But he has a style of his own !!!
The Goths were a Germanic tribe of Scandinavian origin, so many of them probably did have blonde hair. If you mean a goth as in a gothic person, then they usually tend to have dark hair.
Cool Down,Cool Down Come On Don't Be So Angry I'll Help You With that..... and he'll calm down or get more angry ehehhhe......
Well, I'm thirteen and I'm emo. I wear the thick eyeliner and everything else. If your goth, though, don't go with the black lipstick. You can basically wear anything an older goth teenager would wear except for the black lipstick.
There is no certain place to get lyrics from, your lyrics have to come from yourself, your heart and your soul, what YOU feel should spill on the page. just sit down in a room by yourself and what you feel is what you write, you have to be a very fluent ready and writer. and very good at english.
Sure, evanescence is a very goth band so I guess the band members would be considered gothic too.
Neither. Screamo is derivative of Hardcore Punk, not Metal, and the original Screamo bands were of a style more similar to Grindcore or Crust Punk.
Fat lip by sum 41!!!!!!!!!
Their perverted lyrics -___-
I think BOTDF is mainly dance, electric, crunk etc .. Some of their music has some dubstep back ground (party on- botdf) so that's my best description; hope it help a little
No. They are both incredibly skilled bands. Goths are entirely too ignorant too enjoy suck artistic mastery. Goth's are hipsters who don't have enough money to buy non-black makeup.
i dont think its the thing to steriotype but yes goths and emos tend to like heavy rock bands such as Avenged Sevnfold.
Dude, it really all depends on who you are. You can be any label to like Avenged Sevenfold. Goths, emos, scenes and some NERDS like a7x so labels really don't matter when it comes to bands.
SOMEONE WHO WANTS TO BE A GOTH. A POSER.   Someone who has a Hot Topic fequent buyers card and thinks that Manson is a goth singer.

they can wear them but then they are a poser unless they really do skateboard

Goths can listen to whatever music they want as long as they also listen to some actual goth music. If you want to listen to Slipknot, you can, just be sure you also have something like The Cure, The Sisters of Mercy, Bauhaus, or Siouxie and the Banshees on your iPod.
If you question yourself on being a poser, then you are one. It's that simple. Being a goth is a lifestyle, not a music preference.
No. Not even a little bit. It's mostly Nu-Metal, with a couple Trip Hop tracks.
No. She's not a Goth at all. She is more into Rock.
They are usually quiet. they are only talkative to their friends (most likely to also be goth). Emos are also quiet. they actually tend to me more quiet than goths.
I once saw some lady in her 50's Probabily (seriously she had a blue mohawk and very thing) so I don't worry of your age as long as you have a good job and partner who accepts you for your gothic ways it's all good.

The Goth you are familar with, such as 17 and 18 year olds running round shopping malls in all black, white face etc.. aparantly London. But there are deeper roots with Germanic tribes.... but that's a whole different story!!
Goth used to be a religion before Jesus Christ was born. correction: Goth was never a religion. It was a term used to describe two Germanic tribes: The ostrogoths and the visigoths. Another opinion: In relation to modern fashon, Goth is a style niche, just like "indie" or "emo". Goths have...
Critic John Stickney used the term "gothic rock" to describe the music of The Doors in October 1967. ].

To not be goth is really hard. Coming from a goth person. I used to always wear pink until my parents split. So the depression got a hold of me.

Most people would not identify Green Day as goth yet I am a very gothic lady and I believe that Green Day is the best band in this world or any other! Do yourself a favour: buy a Green Day album or see them live. Trust me they are amazing, unbeleivable and the lyrics are so meaningful.
