6. Gothic/Dark atmosphere and lyrics

Please give me some suggestions!
calcol, when I saw your post I immediately thought of Chelsea Wolfe. She is a singer-songwriter with a somewhat gothic vibe and lyrics. Now, I don't believe that she meets all of your criteria in a single song, but she has used all of the things you mentioned at least once each.

The "Strings/Orchestra" bit: She has never used a full orchestra but there are some strings on her "Pain Is Beauty" album that came out this September and the 2012 compilation album "Unknown Rooms: A Collection of Acoustic Songs".

Piano: She doesn't use the piano very often, but on the song "The Waves Have Come" from Pain Is Beauty, there is a pretty prominent piano throughout most of the track (and also some strings).

"Rock/Metal guitars, bass, drums": For this I would look to her 2011 album "Apokalypsis". Pretty much all of the songs on that album has this, although I would consider it more "Rock" than "Metal", but there has been cited slight Metal influences to this album as well.

"Ambient/Electronic sounds and synths": This is for the most-part only prevalent on Pain Is Beauty, especially in songs like "Feral Love", "The Warden" and "Sick". (The closing track on Apokalypsis is an ambient soundscape, though.)

"Gothic/Dark atmosphere and lyrics": Well she definitely meets this criteria... almost all the time... but I also think she is a somewhat unconventional gothic artist who is not terribly clichéd in any way, and I definitely recommend her to you, although she, as I said, doesn't have all the things you mentioned within one single track.

edit: Sorry for late reply btw.

Something like pop-punk or so. Something like Ramones or early Green Day (Dookie/Kerplunk). So catchy, goodtime music. I want more this. It makes me feel good.
But please no hardcorepunk or something like that.
Fast,catchy, short simple songs that will give one a smile when one listens to them.

Okay nobody can be better in this category than the Ramones, but still. And also, I hope it more pop than punk, which means that it is more than just chaotic noise.

[Toadies]- Jigsaw Girl. I love that band but everybody else hates them. Check out some of their lyrics, kind of a similar wave length.

Pretty much any song by Elliott Smith fits that bill.
Check out "Needle in the Hay" off of his s/t.
