Gothic Rock (1978-1989)

Gothic Rock is a style of rock-based music focusing primarily on 'gothic' music and imagery. Typical aspects of the sound include synths, moderate-to-heavy employment of chorus and echo effects and "twangy" rhythm guitar. It developed in the United Kingdom in the late 1970s and early 1980s as an offshoot of Post-Punk, and was initially applied to artists such as Bauhaus, Siouxsie and the Bansheesand The Cure, who had begun to introduce darker elements into the sound.
