    Gothic Straight Edge

    I'm slowly getting into gothic bands. Like Gene Loves Jezebel, The Cure, etc. etc. Anyways, I was wondering if there are any goth bands that are also straight edge? I know of some like AFI and Eighteen Visions, are there any more?

    there are a lot of straight edge metalcore bands, though im not sure if you are looking for those. regardless, here's a brief list:
    7 angels 7 plagues
    prayer for cleansing
    purification
    purified in blood
    timebomb (black metal, but whatever)

    and more that are not coming to mind right now.

    How is a band sXe if they are a metal band?
    This so called shit is what I live for. It's why I'm alive. I'll never smother the fire forever burning inside.

    I'm at the point where I'm sucked in. By the message I get this passion.

    The fury is mine. It keeps me alive. I can't breathe till I release what's inside.

    because the genres of metal and hardcore have been blended many times over. Just because its not old school sounding hardcore doesn't mean its not hardcore.

    I don't think I was around for the last time this happened. Lets hope it'll be a good show. Popcorn anybody?
    Why are hemroids called hemroids? You figure they'd be called asteroids. Then, proctologists would be called astronauts.

    Well the thing is, the almost exact debate has happened a few times now but you still made a post to start it all off again.

    Do any of the bands you listed write or perform songs that talk about straight edge? I personally haven't heard them but I find myself doubting they do. The band may have drug free members but this doesn't mean that the band is a "straight edge band".

    I realize the same debate has happened before. I am simply stating that just because bands don't sound like judge or youth of today, it doesn't neccesarily mean they can't be hardcore.


    purified in blood who were a self proclaimed straight-edge vegan band and were on new eden records, a straight-edge vegan record label.
    http://www.myspace.com/purifiedinblood
    lyrics which pertain to straight edge:
    Venom - the reaper of souls, harvested by evil
    Phantom freedom, the rapist of truth
    Embody stupdity as sanity is burnt to ashes
    Reality torn to pieces, the ruin of mortality
    Death bound with damnation written in blood
    Venom rushing through a body of downfall
    Servant of addiction, it exploits your weakness
    Blinded the infected, insanity will arise
    Minds of decay followed by demise
    Symptoms of suffocation kept silent
    Enslaved mind, polluted heart, famished brain
    Hasting into the condition of unreal
    Eyes of the dead, behold the path to your grave
    Cold steel against thriat, the endless war within
    Hunger for hope torn asunder, your destiny is fulfilled
    It is not God who kills the children. Not fate that butchers them or destiny that feeds them to the dogs. Itís us. Only us.

    The members may be edge but that doesn't make them an edge band when the message isn't there and they are not a hardcore band.

    Gee thats a totally new concept on me. I'm glad you pointed that out to me. Because I only listen to old school sounding hardcore.

    And as Rodrigo pointed out that goth or metal bands were mentioned not generic metalcore or anything else for that matter. I hate that term. Metalcore. If straight edge was brought out and is in the hardcore music scene how can a metal band call themselves sxe with out the hardcore part without it's influence.

    We may have had this conversation before and maybe it keeps getting brought back up because people don't seem to get the point!!!!! Say all the members of the band the Cure were all straight edge and the played the same music they play now. They are in no way shape or form a straight edge band because they are not a hardcore band. That would be like calling hardcore bands that aren't straight edge straight edge bands just because a few members are. Thats like calling Fall out boy sXe cuase one member is.
