Top 55 Gothic metal albums
55Lake of Tears
Forever Autumn
54Peccatum
Lost in Reverie


An experimental mash up of electronics, industrial black metal and gothic
53Trees of Eternity
Hour Of The Nightingale


Ethereal wave goth
52Lullacry
Crucify My Heart


Not the smartest songwriting ever but damn, it's fucking caychy
51Mortal love
I Have Lost


A nice use of fragile female vocals over heavy sound
50On Thorns I Lay
Crystal Tears


The orchestral elements are the highlight of the albums
49Omit
Repose


Long heavy doom tracks with a desolate atmosphere and fragile female vocals that makes a great contrast
48The Foreshadowing
Days of Nothing


Catchy and sombre at the same time
47To Cast a Shadow
In Memory Of


Camilla's vocals are awesome
46The wounded
Atlantic


Have you ever wandered how smells like teen spirit would spund as a goth metal song? Here's the answer
45Sirenia
At Sixes And Sevens


Symphonic element combined to epic vibes and great duets
44Cemetary
Godless Beauty


Angry swedes that combined a melodic guitar style to a rawer sound
43Evanescence
Evanescence


Ok, BMTL is so overplayed that if i hear it again i will pour boiling oil in my ear, some lyrics are pretty edgy and it's not pure goth, more like alternative with goth influences. Amy Lee is truly talented though, she's an awesome pianist, singer and a good songwriter
42Cradle of Filth
Dusk and Her Embrace


While i'm not a huge fan of COF, but their first works contains some great vampiresque atmospheres and quality storitelling.
41Heavenwood
Diva


Underrated portugese Death/goth
40Entwine
Gone


A better version of Him, even catchier
39The 3rd and the Mortal
Tears Laid in Earth


It's like listening to a dark fable
38Crematory
Believe


Death metal elements nicely combined to a melodic Gothic style
37Dark Sanctuary
Les Mèmoires Blessèes


Ok, this is not properly metal, guitars and drums are barely there, but this orchestral majestic work contains some of the most cinematic vibes ever and influences from the gothic metal atmospheres
36Elis
Dark Clouds In A Perfect Sky


Sabine died too soon. Black angel is one pf the best songs in the subgenre
35Yearning
Evershade


Progressive goth with melodic and yet gritty sound
34After Forever
Decipher


I think i could describe this as opera metal
33Dawn of Solace
The Darkness


Post/goth metal with dark atmosphere
32The Birthday Massacre
Walking With Strangers


Synth pop combined to the first 2000s goth trend. Edgy but still awesome, they created their own style.
31Sirrah
Acme


Experimental and never trivial unknown work
30Green Carnation
Light of Day, Day of Darkness


A 1 hour prog song that sounds like an elegant sombre fairytale
29Lacuna Coil
Comalies


While i'm not a huge fan of their recent stuff, the older ones are undoubtedly iconic and well structured
28Rapture
Futile


Melodeath with a claustrophobic atmosphere
27Lilitu
The Delores Lesion


One of the rare cases where fast melodeath combines very well with goth cues. There's a short wonderful acoustic piece too
26Triptykon
Eparistera Daimones


I bet these guys loves Celtic frost. A nice blending of thrash, death, goth, doom and even some industrial. Maybe one of the heaviest albums on this lisy
25Eternal Tears of Sorrow
A Virgin and A Whore


Basically Cradle of filth if they were melodeath (and imo better) the keyboards sounds fantastic
24Lacrimosa
Elodia


A german Symphonic opera with romantic features
23Tristania
Widow's Weeds


The archetype of goth with black influences, beautifully sad
22Theatre Of Tragedy
Velvet Darkness They Fear


The most appropriate band name ever, it describes perfectly what you will find here.
21The Gathering
Nighttime Birds


Proggy and ethereal, Anneke's lyrics are wonderful too
20Saviour Machine
Saviour Machine I


I'm not too much into, well, Jesus lyrics. But damn, this works! A goth/prog masterwork with apocalyptic vibes, technical musicianship and surprisingly good lyrics
19Draconian
Arcane Rain Fell


Death, come near me is monumental.
18Slumber
Fallout


This short melodeath goth lp will make you feel isolated and melancholic
17Before The Dawn
Deadlight


Another melodeath epic work, the vocals fits perfectly with the combination of the genres
16The Old Dead Tree
The Nameless Disease


Why is this so unknown? One of the most original works in these years
15Estatic Fear
A Sombre Dance


Melancholic, nostalgic, beautiful solitude
14Rotting Christ
Triarchy of The Lost Lovers


These Greeks created their own sound blending melodic black metal with gothic creating an apocalyptical triumphant masterpiece
13My Dying Bride
Turn Loose the Swans


I don't think many other bands could depicts sorrow and loneliness better than these doom death masters
12Celtic Frost
Monotheist


This album is not easy to classify, i'll go with avant-garde doom death with gothic elements. One of the most evil and demonic sounding albums ever, obscured is like a soundtrack to the apocalypse
11Lacrimas Profundere
Burning: A Wish


Another underrated work with everything that makes gothic metal great. A nice vocalist, catchy riffs, a perfect use of keyboards and that sadness vibes all around
10Within Temptation
The Unforgiving


Maybe some people could think this is too high due to it's change of style and commercial approach but damn, i remembered every single track after listening to this just once. There are no fillers an Sharon's vocals are beyond awesome, the symphonic elements makes this even more epic
9Moonspell
Irreligious


Mystic and esoteric, irreligious features some of the most original gothic stuff ever, The female vocals in Raven claws are perfect and the magical aura that every song gives will make you listen to this over and over
8Evereve
Stormbirds


The pinnacle of unknown Gothic stuff! Opeth influences and melodic approach contrasting an heavy yet elegant sound makes this one of the most underrated albums.in metal. That waltz is insane too
7Tiamat
Wildhoney


No one ever created a sound similar to this, a perfect combination of dark romantic themes, dreamlike atmospheres and an overall sensation that will make you comfortable
6Sentenced
The Cold White Light


Every single song is gold. The lyrics switch from dark humour to deep and meaningful, every member shines and the bass production is perfect.
5Katatonia
Brave Murder Day


Death doom pioneers that influenced dark Gothic metal with its gloomy, sombre and hopeless style. Brave is one of the best tracks in doom/goth, Akerfeldt vocals are darkest dan ever and the unexpected change of style in the dreamy "day" is delightful
4Anathema
Alternative 4


One of the most depressing and hopeless albums ever, the anxious lyrics is contrasting to the ethereal atmosphere, but the touching piano and lyrics makes this wonderful. They even transformed a Bad religion song in a depressive piano piece
3Saturnus
Veronika Decides to Die


Even more depressing than Alternative 4, if not the saddest album ever, at least to me. The melodeath guitar style, the deep growls alternated to talking monologues, the mainly slow doomy tempos, the acoustic and piano parts, the emotionally struggling lyrics, all combined in one unique masterpiece
2Paradise Lost
Icon


While draconian times is still their masterpiece and one of my favorites albums, i think this fits more with the list, it's the perfect definition of Gothic metal, the archetype of the genre, Christendom is a masterpiece and the guitar work on embers fire is perfect
1Type O Negative
Bloody Kisses


Peter Steele was a genius. His iconic vocals and bass sound combined to the unique guitar production and the blending of various genres such as punk and doom makes Type o negative one of the best bands ever. The lyrics are ironic (in a dark dark way) but still deep and the way they deal with controversial subjects such as racism, depression, religion and sexuality made their names into history books.
