I've been lately listening to this band. They play symphonic/gothic metal with horror related lyrics. What I really loved about them is that with the use of vocals and symphonic melodies they create a truly horror atmosphere.

My question to you is.......do you know of any other bands which play this style. Not just any other symphonic gothic metal but the same style of The Vision Bleak.

im glad that someone did a topic for this excellent band, a two men band from Germany ... Actually they are not symphonic gothic, but something between gothic and death/doom with a horror atmosphere of course... Their first album "The Deathship Has A New Captain" is a masterpiece with no doubt, as the second and last album "Carpathia - A Dramatic Poem"

* I need to mention that i did some additions in their invisible profile, a few days ago but still no one accepted them

humm, i know of the band's existence. but havent heard anything from them. but what i like about the band is the lyrics. a lil strange, coz some of them are writen in german, or soemthing.

haha, germany comes up with some of the best bands, like Haggard and tons of other bands.

yeap, i like very much too some songs written in german... Agathodaimon has some songs in german, and also Der Perfekte Craum song of Rotting Christ has some lyrics in german.. And of course there are more bands with german lyric, and the majority of them are bands from germany like The Vision Bleak, Haggard and Agathodaimon ... Its an intereresting language..

I think what he wanted to say and its also my opinion, that The Vision Bleak have first of all that Horror theme throughout their songs and they create a certain atmosphere with their instruments that compliments very much the lyrics. Its not plain goth metal as we tend to hear frequently. Thats why in the first place I made this thread because I wanted to see if their were other similiar bands to TVB. But till now it seems that nobody came up with appropriate band. The search continues...........

The Vision Bleak are one of the best new gothic metal bands. Their debut (The Deathship Has A New Captain) is one of the best gothic albums i ever heard. I haven't heard their new album but people tell that it's very good.

Do you know of any other bands with the same style


Try Empyrium ( start with the song Lover's grief ), that's a band by the same guitarist, Markus, he is brilliant and this is not a similar band, but you'll like the atmosphere I am pretty sure you'll like it.

Thank you

Based on this topic and on the info I've found on the web, I'm getting into this band really soon. They seem quite creative and unique. And they dress amazingly elegant!

Actually Empyrium is one of my favourite band. In my last.fm list its probably in the 3rd position overall and ironically Lover's Grief is my favourite track with special mention to Mourners. Anyway nonetheless thanks for the recomendation!!

here that's what I call gothic metal! she-wolf and wolfmoon are my favourite songs so far, and TVB have given me the complete gothic felling with their lyrics and atmosphere and style

Not a big fan of the band. T.T. of SotM did some shows with them and I'm sure he did a great job, but the band isn't too amazing to me. I've listened to them a few times and still not my thing. Good luck on your search though!

Heh, howcome I haven't seen this thread before? These guys are on my list of favourites ever since a colleague of mine brought their last CD to work.
I love the voice, love the guitars, love the lyrics, love the drums... and mostly I love the way The Vision Bleak manage to fit into goth Metal without falling in the boring and overheard musical clichés that often make goth Metal unbearable. They're goth, but they make their own, very characteristic sound and not just somebody else's ripoff.

I love everything in band but their drums, it look so boring and simple they dont have a real drummer yet
