One of the longest continuously running industrial/dark wave bands from Denver, Blackcell (or Black Cell) set a high bar for a modern version of old school EBM with its 2013 album Songs In the Key of Black.
Before reinventing itself later in the decade as a progressive metal act, Born In Winter tried its hand as a Goth-industrial band. Singer Michelle Huerd now lends her considerable vocal talent to Glass Delirium.
The guys in Caustic Soul were the godfathers of the Goth scene in Denver in the early-to-mid 2000s taking leadership roles in bringing together the Denver Dark Arts festival and encouraging like-minded artists like Kubix and Noise 626. Pictured here the band performs at the CD release of its final, and best, album, An Absence of Warmth, a brilliant concept album about World War I.
Like Caustic Soul, Dark Orchid (along with eROTic) were signed to David Goff's excellent independent label, Gestalt. Fronted by Tonja Yelton (then Nolan), Dark Orchid didn't fit neatly in with the Goth scene because it was more like Concrete Blonde, but a lot of the band's friends were in that world and it had enough songs that were moody and dark at a time when that was all but synonymous with Goth.Die Brücke was something like an industrial rock band. Here it is opening for Nitzer Ebb at the Bluebird Theater.
