    Top 10 Gothic Metal Albums

    I just found this thread by pure luck and I'm so glad I did! You all have shared amazing lists (Saturnus rules), I'm even discovering Virgin Black thanks to this thread. It's nice to see a good discussion on Gothic Metal, something that's been lacking in recent years. Anyway, I just wanted to share my list. I'll follow the rule of one album per band. 10. Tiamat - Prey I was about to put Wildhoney but that album sounds kinda more "avant garde" to me, so I just went for the safe bet. Prey is my second favourite album by Tiamat. It's melancholic and powerful from beginning to end. 9. Theatres des Vampires - Bloody Lunatic Asylum Very dark and interesting. This and Suicide Vampire are probably the best of old TdV. 8. Cradle of Filth - Hammer of the Witches CoF at their best. It's been years since I really enjoyed something made by them, and this album is truly remarkable. 7. Darkwell - Suspiria A haunting masterpiece by this fantastic Austrian band. It will leave an impression! 6. My Dying Bride - A Map of All Our Failures I wasn't sure which MDB album to include, so I choose this beautiful piece of work. It gets very gloomy, and its execution is flawless. 5. Theatre of Tragedy - Velvet Darkness They Fear A solid entry in the Gothic Metal scene. Out of all Theatre of Tragedy albums this is probably the one I listened to the most. Just delightful. 4. Moonspell - Wolfheart Amazing, unforgettable. Irreligious was considered to be here too, but in the end I favoured Wolfheart for its aggressive darkness. 3. Rotting Christ - A Dead Poem This is among my favourite albums ever. It shows how versatile and creative Rotting Christ are. After this they went for an (amazing) blend of Black/Folk/Symphonic Metal, but their late '90s works left a deep impression in me. 2. Paradise Lost - Draconian Times A timeless classic. I enjoyed this one a lot more than Icon and Shades of God. 1. Tristania - Widow's Weeds One of the best albums of all time, hands down. The line-up at this time was perfect, too.
