Well, I'm in a cybercafe waiting for my own laptop to be repaired, but I should have it back hopefully by the weekend. Will upload some stuff ASAP.

Here's a Sopor Aeternus lyric:

Alas, let me tell you about the beauty of the tomb
The stained glass, all viole[n]t, enhancing the gloom
Dark flowers, all withered, fragile and old
Yet their perfume still lingers, like a secret untold
Like a dream or a memory that floats in this vault
Waiting for the moment it shall be recalled
By some visitor maybe who is seeking relief
from a strange kind of sadness, some unknown disease
Its symptoms are madness, caught by the music in his head
sung by the endless choirs called "The Voices of the Dead"
...
It's his longing for silence, for the absence of sound
that will lead him to hidden paths below the ground
Where he shall discover, through terror and through fear
Behind the black pine doors, something is sleeping here...
A little dead baby, a young boy lies kept
So fragile and frightened, crippled and sad


Imagine a sort of medieval horror poet reading this lyric with a very echoing 'tomb' voice, guided by a dark medieval march (trumpeths etc) with some horror samples such as a distant macabre church bell...

That's Sopor Aeternus for you. It's very unique music.
Keep it flaming your desire, always rising higher - Aim for stars and hit the sky

No surprise probably: Germany. It's a cliche but it's true: Germany is by far the biggest gothic country in Europe, the gothscene in Germany is bigger than in the whole rest of Europe.

Sopor Aeternus' records are quite rare as they don't press the discs in great numbers. The ones that are produced, are mainly sold in Germany and over the internet, though in some specialised Gothic stores in other countries you can also find them. But aim for the specialised Gothic stores, as mainstream or more general record stores will not sell them.

It'll be tough to find them then... I will be on the lookout though...

Do you read a lot? There are some fine gothic literature out there....

As I said, aim for specialised gothic stores. Sopor Aeternus is cult in the goth subculture, but I'm afraid they're little known outside our own scene. The name Sopor Aeternus means "eternal sleep", aka death. The "ensemble of shadows" stand for the spirits that inspire singer Anna-Varney while writing music. They're very ethereal and dark, but I'd say mainly the medieval elements make the music stand out. It's very unique music.


As for my reading: I spent my whole childhood reading books, but mainly non-fiction, I was always devotely into travel guides.
Since I suffer from obsessive-compulsive disorder (contamination OCD) it's harder for me to read a lot, as I have the urge to clean everything on frequent basis and books aren't that easy to clean. So because of that I feel unable to read a lot, despite huge interest in authors like Oscar Wilde and Edgar Allan Poe. Maybe I will buy some of their books on cd-rom format, as that would help to get around my OCD problem.
OCD sufferer for 8 years now by the way :( It's very common for us Aspergians to also have OCD, as our obsessive nature brings us close to the line where the obsessions start forming a problem in everyday life. I unfortunately crossed the line, but whereas Asperger Syndrome is for life, OCD is curable so I try not to give in too much to the disorder.

I'm not sure if there's other Goths here, but I'd be up for such a thread for sure B)

I was at a UCSC event at the Boardwalk Image and they played a Cure song, my friends and I started singing and dancing all over the place :), it was fabulous.
A note upon his desk
"P.S. Bring Me Home And Have Me!"
Leather elbows on a tweed coat
-Oh!-
Is THAT the best you can do ?
So came his reply :
"But on the desk is where I want you!"
