The Best Gothic Music Videos! Blast from the Past!

On this particular gothic blog, you may have noticed videos are a common feature! And because they often lack text, if you missed any of these videos the first time around, you may find them hard to locate again. Thus this Blast from the Past feature was born! Here are some of the best videos we've featured on the site so far.

GOTHIC MUSIC VIDEOS:

Rammstein - Mein Teil - A video from everyone's favorite group of East German pyromaniacal musicians, concerning the true story of a man who ran a personal ad looking for someone who wanted to be eaten... and found a willing participant.

Cradle of Filth - Lilith Immaculate - Another Gothic Metal band, whose videos may have inspired the Dethklok band from Metalocalypse. They have as easy a time as anyone with generating controversy, and are accused of being Satanists more often than Jayne Mansfield.

Nine Inch Nails - Closer - About as mainstream as Gothic Industrial music ever managed to get was with this song and this "band" (which is actually just Oscar-winning musician Trent Reznor and a bunch of electronic equipment, occasionally supplemented for the sake of live performances by some other musicians.) The video is on permanent display in the Museum of Modern Art.

Bella Morte - On The Edge - The band's name is Italian for "Gorgeous Death." They've achieved a remarkably strong following in the underground music scene and while the players have been juggled a bit more often than in some groups, their quality stays on par to make them Metropolis Records' number one artist.
