Gothic metal playlist/ Gothic metal is a genre of heavy metal music. It is characterized as a combination of the dark atmosphere of gothic rock with the aggression of heavy metal music. The genre originated during the early 1990s in Europe as an outgrowth of death/doom, a fusion of death metal, doom metal, and gothic rock.

The music of gothic metal is diverse with bands known to adopt the gothic approach to different styles of heavy metal music. Lyrics are generally melodramatic and dark with inspiration from gothic fiction as well as personal experiences.

The term gothic entered heavy metal music with the release of Paradise Lost’s Gothic album in 1991. Since then, fans have often been at odds with one another as to “which bands are, or most definitely are not, authentically Goth”.
