umbratic aesthetics


On Scathe website one can find some of the best analyses of the history of the so-called gothic musical movement avaiable on the Internet. From that movement derived the Gothic Subculture , which actually has been called  "Schwarze Kultur" (Dark Culture) in Germany -- the country whose scene, for its strength, has influenced others in last decades.


In that country people are increasingly using the label "gothic" -- and the kinda pejorative slang "grufti" (gothic) and "urgrufti" (proto-gothic) -– in order to especifically designate the 80's division of a subculture around the axis of darkness that, since the 90's, partially due to the libertarian spirit emerged with German reunification, has been able to expand through many other musical subgenres and different ways of artistic expression not taken before. That's why since then the mentioned most comprehensive umbrella label "Schwarze Kultur" has become more proper.

The contemporary "Schwarze Szene" (Dark Alternative Scene) strongly influences other national scenes all around the world.
