So I was looking at my mediafire profile and it seems like the albums I've plugged in my blog have received a high amount of notice, each up to about 100 downloads. Checking my Youtube page at the same time, some of my Gothic Country music videos have received a lot of views and I'm currently sitting with 19 subscribers and 8 follows of my blog. All I can say is holy shit, people are actually listening to me!!!

Here's the numbers from my blog:

Elliott BROOD - Ambassador - 112 downloads
Those Poor Bastards - Satan Is Watching - 96 downloads
O'Death - Broken Hymns, Limbs, and Skin - 266 downloads
Sons of Perdition - The Kingdom Is On Fire - 83 downloads
Tarantella - Esqueletos - 171 downloads
William Elliott Whitmore - Song of the Blackbird - 63 downloads

That's some pretty impressive numbers to me, especially for O'Death. All I can say is thank you for listening, you've been great, and I that with some improved vigor I'll be updating more frequently.

Thank You!

^ I can't believe I never noticed this thread!

I've been hooked on the Beginner's guide to Dark Cabaret ever since I downloaded it, and I've been really confused on which albums to begin with, so any thoughts?

Those are some pretty impressive download numbers for sure. Pretty cool to know that many people are into this stuff. I've yet to find anyone really into this type thing outside of here and one other forum I post on regularly. Pretty sad because the genre is full of some really great bands. Guess the same could be said for Country music in general.

It's really hard to say because the genre can be really split into two groups. The first group is just a collection of musicians who like the sound of the music, the second is a group of musicians AND actors. For bands like Circus Contraption visuals are just as part for the show as the music, in fact the visuals are what compliment the music. As a place to start off, what was your favorite song off that compilation? If I can I'll send you the full album in which it came from.

Uh uh nobody knocks this thread off to the 2nd page!!!

So I found out that both Strawfoot and The Builders & The Butchers had new albums out in 2009 yet they seemed to escape my ever vigilant watch. Picked up both of them today, however as I've already made an entry in this thread for Strawfoot I've decided to dedicate this post to The Builders & The Butchers.

The Builders & The Butchers





I was aware of them before this album came out, in fact a few months ago someone was kind enough to send me their self-titled debut album, however I was less than impressed with it. It wasn't nearly dark enough for me to consider it to be "Gothic" by any stretch of the imagination, and the production was severely lacking. Despite all that I decided to keep it and attempt a third and fourth listen later down the line to see if I could get into them. Well thanks to their new album, I won't have to put my ears through that kind of punishment because their sophomore album is far superior in every way, shape, and form.

First thing's first, the album art does a very good job at foreshadowing what one would expect to find in the lyrics and music. This album takes a far darker tone than it's predecessor, both lyrically and musically. An album doesn't have to be exceedingly dark or sinister for me to enjoy it, however I have a darker personality so it does make the experience more enjoyable if an album has a demented twist to it.

The second thing that really makes this album stand out is the more professional production value on it. For bands in the Gothic Country and related subgenres, it can be quite difficult to get into a good studio to help polish your sound. Their first album suffered from this unfortunate and unfair affliction of the music industry, however persevering through the hard times they were able to get into a decent studio and really show us what they can do.

Anyways I thought so highly of this song that I decided to put it up on my Youtube account, so enjoy! IF you like the song and wish to try the rest of the album, you know what to do... and if you don't then PM me.

That sounds really good. I'll have to check it out for sure. I've been listening to a lot of Gothic Americana lately. Certainly one of my favorite genres out there. I would really like to order more albums to support the artists but lately I've been pretty stretched for money so downloading a good bit. My birthday is coming up soon though, so I'll be sinking some money into music for sure. Wish more people knew how awesome this stuff was. Hopefully people check this thread out and realize what they're missing. Awesome thread man. Keep up spreading the word of good music. Great to see someone doing it!

Thanks man, I commented on your list back in your introduction thread, which is pretty much the first time I've ever made a post in a new member's intro thread. Yes, it's pretty amazing to think that I've been managing this thread for nearly a year now, considering how little traffic this subforum gets it's quite an accomplishment. You should also check out my blog that I have dedicated to Gothic Country, I always provide links for downloads and I've gotten a lot better at updating it more frequently.
