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.
We had a chance to check out the new Lexington Comic & Toy Convention and were really impressed by what was on display!
In the late 90’s, a new shock rock band known as Rackets and Drapes hit the scene and turned many heads. Mostly that of Christians, as they were well-known in the Christian metal circles since they played the Cornerstone Festival a few times. They were met with much hate, but the love that the fans (that they call Therapy Patients) showed was much greater. 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. Whatever the case may be, if you’ve ever been told this or even said it yourself, congratulations. You’ve had an encounter with one of the most annoying, self-righteous pricks in the scene: The elitist.

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.
The 2019 DarkestGoth Spokesmodel search has been one of the most robust in our history, as finalists were challenged not only to submit galleries, articles, and videos, but also to promote their work and show that they were community minded in the process.
At the end of the search, one contestant perpetually worked their butt off and pushed the envelope. And even when confusion and miscommunication arose, they pushed through and corrected the issues as speedily as could’ve been expected!
The art of Casting a Glamour is an Old Hollywood term that is common lingo for movie stars, runway models, and the music industry. It is the art of illusionary magic. Some say love is an illusion, life is an illusion, death is an illusion, so why not add in the art of filming into the spectrum?
