YouTube has revealed to me a variety of music styles that I might not have gravitated to. These aren’t something you’d generally hear outside of (maybe) a college station.

So I thought I’d share.

I’ll start with some, well I guess you could call it Gothic Folk/Americana

First a video, the Backwater Gospel. An animated short about death in the old west (or more modern Appalachia)

The short is used for the music video Drink the Water by Justin Cross. I’m an Atheist but I appreciate the gospel undertones in music. That leads me to Blood on My Name and Awake O Sleeper by Brothers Bright, a much more rockin band, still somewhat Gothic.

Dogs of War by Blues Saraceno –another rockin band

On the heavier side of things we have Wrong Side of Heaven by Five Finger Death Punch. Pretty much a straight up Rock song (a little on the heavy side) Awesome song and the video, as a former military man, it strikes a chord.  And if you’ve watched the Netflix Daredevil you’ll recognize the images from Nobody Praying for Me

Disturbed – Sound of Silence-a close second to Leonard Cohen’s version.

Over to more Gospel-ish, Ollabelle Soul Of A Man Continue reading “Gothic Americana (and Other Musical Genres)”
