By Madison

If you are looking for a new type of music to add to your playlist, you should try these cybergoth bands. Cybergoth is a musical genre that, unlike traditional gothic music, has a more electronic sound. The term “cybergoth” was first used in 1988, but the term and the music have evolved since then. Now, cybergoth is noted just as much by the fashion of the bands and listeners as it is the music itself. Cybergoth fashion is most notably dark clothes with hints of neon color. The music is as diverse and interesting as the fashion! Cybergoth draws heavy influence from modern rave and techno music and is often associated with the gothic club scene. If you’ve never given this genre a listen, check out these 7 cybergoth bands.
