Rediscovering The Undead Past

This page is dedicated to bringing attention to and shining a light on the underground.Although we do tend to focus on newer bands and artist I would like to take a moment to introduce you to some artists of the past that may have escaped your radar.

The goth scene seems to be a little stuck, just repeating the same old Sisters Of Mercy records and this has been touched upon in a previous Editorial article so I wont get too deep into that in particular.I often spend several hours just hunting the interwebs for specifically 80s bands that didn`t get the same exposure as others or maybe didnt stick around long enough for that to even be a possbility. In my musical hunts I have stumbled upon some lost treasures and that is what I want to present here now.

Where informaton is available I will attempt to provide what I can as far as period of activity, discography and line-up.

These will be presented in no particular order although I will say my personal favourites include CORTEX and ROSEGARDEN FUNERAL : )
