Default Dark Southern Gospel

Hey! So I'm in a band, and our sound lately has been moving in a direction that I call, for lack of a better term, 'dark southern gospel.' Trouble is, I don't really have much experience with this kind of music (we didn't really set out to write it, that's just what's been coming out lately, and we really like it). So does anyone have any suggestions of music I should listen to so I can familiarize myself with this genre a bit better? Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!

I unfortunately do not know of any dark southern gospel bands (if I did, I would be all over that ****). I do recommend, however, searching into the roots of gospel music, which is primarily old Delta blues, and traditional hymns. I suggest looking into Blind Lemon Johnson, Blind Willie Johnson, and Robert Johnson. And any other delta blues musician whose name has "Johnson" in it.

Also, if you don't know what Last.FM is, go to that website and look around at the related artists to the artists I just told you, and look at the gospel and blues pages for inspiration.

There may also be some steampunk artists that you all would like. Maybe Reverend Glasseye and his Wooden Legs, Vernian Process, Clare Fader & The Vaudevillains, Evelyn Evelyn.

Thanks! That's a lot of help. I really don't have much in the way of an idea of what I'm doing, but it's been fun to explore.

No problem. Always willing to lend a hand to some people going in a direction not often traveled.

A few pages back in this forum is my Gothic Country thread that has a bunch of videos and recommendations, I'd suggest looking there for examples of Dark Gospel.
