V for VERITAS: The Truth In A Lie [EDITORIAL]

I’m known as Veronika Gypsy, but everyone just calls me, V. Your editor and I know one another because we both do photography with alternative models and we tend to hear some really amazing stories. As we got to talking, he suggested that I write for you because, with a little ingenuity, I can tell stories that others cannot.

This band has not only hit the major targets to position itself in a person’s favorite band list- it sure is in my top 10, but has continued to create thought provoking lyrics, harsh beats and wicked music that has you begging for more! Though not an innovator to EBM/Industrial music, nolongerhuman has and is blowing the minds of many as well as their expectations; from raging shows that leave you pumped fool of energy and crazy screaming fans tugging at their hair.

A 30 minute film created in a single room with a single actor for $2,000 swept you into a mystical embrace of powerful storytelling and seriously thrilling scares. The short film got a 9.5 from the critic that saw it, while…

E3 2012 to 2013: A Dystopian Year in Gothic Gaming [EDITORIAL]

As the new DarkestGoth Gaming section gets into gear right before E3, I find myself thinking about the year in gaming. We’ve seen some amazing changes in the world of games with story and games that’ve managed to make you care when you shouldn’t! As we wait for more news on the next Fallout game, Gothic photographer and artist Kat Hood (of KJ Hood Photography) has successfully helmed the collaboration of a group of gothic models, photographers, effects makeup people, and props masters for the largest Fallout themed series of fan cosplay photoshoots in the game’s history.
