The Goths were an East German tribe that was instrumental in the fall of the Roman Empire and the rise of the Medieval Europe. See the related link below for more information.

Goth bands include: Bauhaus, Joy Division, The Cure, The Sisters of Mercy, Siouxsie and the Banshees, and The Birthday Party.

Goths are people who are 'part' of the gothic subculture which usually means wearing black and other darker velvet tones. There are many different types of goth. Some of the more 'famous' ones are the romantic goths who usually wear lace,velvet and generally elegant and spookily decadent clothing. There are also the hardcore deathrockers, etc.

Goths appreciate the beauty in death and darkness and we embrace the fact that life isn't always happy and perfect. And we LOVE Halloween!

Who are the visigoth?

The Visigoths were the western branch of the Goths. The Goths were original from Sweden and migrated through eastern Europe all the way to Ukraine. When the Huns invaded their land, some of the Goths asked the Roman emperor to allow them to settle in the lower Danube area of the Roman Empire to escape the Huns. This was granted. The rest of the Goths were conquered by the Huns and became their vassals. The Goths in the Roman Empire then came to be called Visigoths (Goths of the west) because at that point they lived further west than the other Goths. The other Goths came to be called Ostrogoths (Goths of the east).
