Over the years, many popular artists have flirted with the darker side of life. Whether it be the Rolling Stones dabbling in the occult, the melancholy of artists such as The Cranberries and Radiohead, or simply the exploration of sadness and grief from pop icons such as Prince, Billy Idol and Britney Spears, many songs you know and love have celebrated an aspect of gothic melody.
What ‘Coffin Cult’ do is take the ember of foreboding in these songs, place it in a tinder ball of hypnotic rhythms, gritty guitars and beautiful eerily vocals, and blow on it. This gives life to macabre interpretations of popular music that fit perfectly next to artists that would more traditionally be associated with the gothic subgenre such as The Cure, The Smiths, Deftones and Marilyn Manson.
Whether you plan to drip yourself from head to toe in black or rock up in your Saturday slay attire, all are welcome to help us rip the heart out of Pop and shove it down the throat of Goth!
