Blackened Scandinavian metal band Skald In Veum hit the scene hard, turned many heads and had even more banging with their debut release 1260 Days in 2015. Four years later, the band finally released their long-anticipated sophomore album, Stridslysten, with a LIMITED CD release, so get one while you still can!
Underground hip-hop duo Twiztid spent a year preparing their fans for the release of Generation Nightmare. With a number of singles hitting the digital media outlets, Jamie Madrox and Monoxide Child showed their fans just how versatile they can be, and announced to the world that “we are the nightmare children.”

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Twiztid’s album W.I.C.K.E.D., a weekend tour was launched. I attended the show at Oddbody’s in Dayton, Ohio. While there I ran into underground rap artist Xtra Overdoze.

After 16 years of inactivity and silence, Therapy Patients got quite the shock treatment when K. Kane came out of the blue and announced the return of R&D. And she has decided to give her only interview to DarkestGoth.
“You’re not Goth because…” Take your pick: Because you like a particular band/genre, because of your personal religious beliefs, because your aesthetics aren’t “Goth enough,” or even because you don’t know the entire history of the subculture.

Alla Xul Elu, or A.X.E. for short, is a horrorcore rap group from Ohio, consisting of three members: Billy Obey, Joe Black, and Lee Carver. At AXEmas 3 in Dayton this year, I was lucky enough to pull them aside for a few minutes, and needless to say it was just as I expected.
Recently I had the pleasure of conversing with Brandon Smith, the mastermind behind the electronic rock project, The Anix. This year he signed to FiXT Music and released his newest studio album Shadow_Movement.
