A dark wave mix for a black heart

Sometimes the divisions between the goth sub-genres are really confusing. I have participated in lengthy debates as to what precisely is apocalyptic folk, why goths cringe at any allusion to heavy metal and what the fuck one means when one says one likes electronic body music… Who knows if these songs will meet your personal qualifications for dark wave, but they are without question fit for a black heart.
