Post Gothic Metal
Gothic Metal in incredibly huge in Europe at the moment. All people who were into 80's metal are now into Gothic because the two styles are so similar(Gothic, however, is more synth based). Do you have Gothic Metal Bands and fans in the States or Japan?

There´s some growing scene here.
But I think that the place in wich that music has the best audience, it´s certainly Europe, countries like Sweeden and Norway.

Post Within Temptation, Nightwish, After Forever
Within Temptation, Nightwish, After Forever, in mean. Do you know any of these bands in the US or Japan? And are there any American bands in this style? I've heard of a Japanese band called Fatima Hill, I think they're Gothic.
I Europe (with the exception of the UK) some bands are becoming mainstreem(i.e. scoring top 10 hits). Nightwis were number one for a couple of weeks in Finland with 'Ever dream'. In some countries, like Poland f.i., there are gothic festivals with over 20 000 fans.
It's not as big as melodic metal in the '80's but the sales figures for this genre are really good over here.
