Then you don’t know how heavily some of these bands are indeed drawing on “dark” music of the past. I hear a lot of rip-off…as for my credentials for making that statement, I’m literally typing this comment from the once-infamous Denton, TX “House of Tinnitus”.
P.S. “Witchhouse” (if you can really call it a genre on its own) is the worst. Like a shitty, watered-down re-hash of several truly experimental 80′s acts…
Old-timer goth-industrial chick sez: I’m very disappointed in you hipster shits all up in my scene.
