Cleopatra ID Desolate Cleopatra ID is a local band from Cirebon, Indonesia. They have Collaborated with Author and Poet TC McKinney for song lyrics to songs 'Fortify' 'Desolate' 'Terricolous' 'Stagnate' and 'Rekindled Fire' This is the first album completion CD by Cleopatra ID and produced by TC McKinney. This Band Genre is Gothic Metal. They have been around since September of 2005 and have no plans of giving up their dream. Sounding like evanescence this band has a strong sense about them and are holding firm to the production of another CD with written lyrics once again by TC McKinney. The Constellations Southern Gothic The Constellations could have called their debut album After Hours. Sure, Martin Scorsese already used that name for his 1985 black comedy, but the two works share much in common. Both are wide screen spectacles rife with seedy scenes and eccentric personalities, propelled by a manic energy that hustles the audience deeper into the unexpected. But Southern Gothic was a better choice. Because The Constellations stomping ground is Atlanta, GA, and in the wee small hours of the morning, ATown can get awfully bizarre. The record is all about what happens in Atlanta from 2 AM until noon. Your tour guide on this madcap adventure is the magnetic frontman and vocalist Elijah Jones, the ringleader of the twisted circus that is The Constellations, who spent two years writing and recording the album with producer Ben H. Allen (Animal Collective, Gnarls Barkley), along with some storied cronies from the local scene. Not that they set out with specific intentions. Far from it. "All of us wanted to do a record about Atlanta, but we never said it in words," recalls Jones. "But the deeper we got into it, the more we realized we were writing a concept album." "Atlanta is strange," he adds, "because we're all basically pushed together." The hip-hop heads, punk 4 Darkfaery Subculture Magazine

rockers, and indie kids all rub shoulders and mix it up. Southern Gothic reflects that inclusive diversity in its far-reaching sound. "The record was designed to sound lyrically and melodically very thought out, and sonically very disorganized," comments Allen. One expects nothing less from a singer who cites Tom Waits and Cee-Lo of Goodie Mob and Gnarls Barkley as his musical heroes, working with a producer who name-checks Fela Kuti and Gorillaz among their record's key influences. The band's name refers to the myriad musicians from the regional scene who either contributed to making Southern Gothic, or have since played in The Constellations live band. One luminary who drops in is Cee-Lo, whose verse on the electro-rocker "Love Is A Murder" prompted a completely overhaul the track underneath. Another guest is suburban rapper Asher Roth, lending his playful rhymes to "We're Here To Save The Day," among the disc's most insidious moments. On the one hand, this ditty's sound is pure sing-along bliss, with a gleeful chorus delivered by Elijah's niece and nephew. Yet at the same time, Jones and Roth drop rhymes that lampoon commercial top 40 hip-hop and chest-thumping poseurs. Of The Wand & The Moon - Sonnenheim This is the 4th, long awaited and much anticipated masterpiece from :OTWATM: with 15 new tracks. The release also features collaborators from Forseti and Sonne Hagal. Musically, this is Kim Larsen and :OTWATM: as we all know it, but with a very big development in sound and atmosphere. Indeed, "Sonnenheim" has some of the best songs ever to emerge from this Danish cult folk noir project! After the "trilogy" "Nighttime Nightrhymes", "Emptiness:Emptiness:Emptiness" and "Lucifer", a new chapter for OTWATM starts with "Sonnenheim," which is also the first album of OTWATM to appear on Kim Larsen's new label Heidrunar Myrkrunar via Tesco. 'Bring Your Friends To The Feast! It's nighttime In Sonnenheim!' A true feast for the ears as well as the eyes! Comes in very nice digipack with embossed metallic-foilblocked

titles and debossed images and a 12 page booklet with all the texts. The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing - Now That's What I Call Steampunk! Volume 1 Genre defining 2010 debut album from UK Steampunk trailblazers, The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing. Part Victorian Music Hall, part Punk Rock, stuffed full of barbed pop hooks and with it's tongue firmly in it's cheek, this is the sound of an alternative reality where the Punk revolution happened, not in 1976 but 1876...a grimey steam-powered world of etiquette, empire, lunatic asylums, scientific heretics, hot air ballooning and the ubiquitous brass goggles. This strange and brilliant punk rock futurescape is brought to you by cult comedian Andrew O'Neill (guitar/vocals), Andy Heintz, erstwhile frontman of pioneering thrash-goth legends Creaming Jesus (vocals/ musical saw), Million Dead and Pale Horse drummer Ben Dawson and comedian and self confessed "Indiest man alive" Marc Burrows (Bass/ vocals), ensuring a melting pot of music styles that range from full on steam powered Metal, to acapella music hall via catchy sing-a-long cockney Punk. The Cog is Dead - Steam Powered Stories A Clock Maker, A Millionaire, A TimeMachine Mechanic & A Confused Navigator travel across time spreading their music and encouraging people to use steam engines and analog clockwork. They are "The Cog is Dead," a time-traveling steampunk musical group who rock the world with their eclectic mix of incredibly fun, catchy and sometimes downright epic songs about clockwork, steam power, good, evil and of course love. This is their debut album, Steam Powered Stories, and it's chock full of marvelous mechanical melodies sure to leave songs stuck in your head and have you coming back for more.


Limits of Horror: Technology, Bodies, Gothic [Paperback] by Fred Botting Horror isn't what it used to be. Nor are its Gothic avatars. The meaning of monsters, vampires and ghosts has changed significantly over the last two hundred years, as have the mechanisms (from fiction to fantasmagoria, film and video games) through which they are produced and consumed. Limits of horror, moving from gothic to cybergothic, through technological modernity and across a range of literary, cinematic and popular cultural texts, critically examines these changes and the questions they pose for understanding contemporary culture and subjectivity. Reexamining key concepts such as the uncanny, the sublime, terror, shock and abjection in terms of their bodily and technological implications, this book advances current critical and theoretical debates on Gothic horror to propose a new theory of cultural production based on an extensive discussion of Freud's idea of the death drive. About the Author Fred Botting is Professor in the Institute for Cultural Research, Lancaster University Gothic Lolitas: How to Draw Manga Step by Step [Paperback] by Sergio Guinot By employing stunning art and step-by-step instructions, this visual guide shows aspiring manga artists how to create lifelike female characters, from the initial geometric shapes through the finished image. Drawing inspiration from Victorian and Edwardian styles of dress, the gothic Lolita style this reference employs is shown in a clear, instructive, and easyto-visualize fashion. Each instructional lesson begins with a series of geometric shapes and each eventual character is developed in a manner that builds confidence and skills, making this an ideal resource for beginners and those with an interest in manga who want to hone their abilities.

I am a stay at home mother of 3 kids 2 boys and my youngest is a baby girl. I work with Darkfaery Subculture Magazine and I run the Darkfaery Girls who are basically the spokes models for the magazine. I also contribute articles to the magazine regularly. I love working with DFSM. The staff are great to work with and it's always a laid back atmosphere. Along with this I am also a paranormal investigator with my husband for our husband/wife team called Oklahoma Studies of the Unexplained or OKSU. We look for evidence of not only the normal paranormal things, but also the cryptology part, like Bigfoot.

I am also very interested in History and love to go to Antique stores to see what I can find. The thing that saddens me about the Antique stores is the forgotten family history of people, like old photos. Are there really people who don't care about their family members of the past enough to keep their images. I would never dream of getting rid of anything with family history to it unless maybe it was to donate to a museum or something. And for another past time I like to spend time at cemeteries in search of loved ones graves for people who have contacted me through findagrave.com. It is a nice feeling to help them out to see a loved ones final resting place that they would otherwise.

BanderSNATCH 2.0

The dark side of Oklahoma City’s club scene is premiering this Thursday, August 5th, at the hidden castle in Norman, Oklahoma. Bedlam Emotion, DJ Mayhem, DJ Ostara, DJ Bone, and DJ Dead Dreamer will perform at Fracture!, a new dark electronic event put together by Jesse Edgar (AKA Bedlam Emotion) and FourStarSocial. Fracture! is just one part of Edgar’s long-time dream to throw a dark rave event, inspired by a love for industrial music that started when he was a teenager. “I can remember back when I was 13 and 14 years old, listening to Wumpscut, VNV Nation, Apoptygma Berzerk, and wondering how you could incorporate that into an event,” Edgar said. Oklahoma City has been waiting awhile for the industrial music scene to rear its dark, evil, and delicious head again since most of the events moved to Tulsa with Wes Turner, a local promoter with Re:Mission Entertainment. However, Fracture! is doing more than just catering to industrial music fans. DJ Ostara and DJ Mayhem are creating custom sets in their own genres to give their style of music a darker feel, hoping to bring a variety of types of music fans together. Fans of industrial, synthpop, EDM, electro, dark breaks, and DNB can come together and explore the darker side of their favorite music while being introduced to other genres they may not have experienced otherwise. “To sum it all up, I decided to follow my dream as a younger party kid and throw Fracture! OKC/Norman’s newest dark electronic event!” Edgar said.

Tulsa based punk rock band, The Soap Charge, gives their first interview ever to DarkFaery magazine. Formed in Oklahoma in the bassist's garage, Davy, Travis, Devon and Rusty came together in their love for music and have already went on to play on the No Coast Punx Fest in Denver. Soap Charge proves that with a little hardwork and a tight group of friends, even in a state like Oklahoma, punk bands can be successful if they have enough passion behind them. The Soap Charge members where kind enough to sit down, take a few photos and talk about their band and their love for music. So how was the band formed? Davy: Well, Rusty, Devon and I played in a band before this called The Disowned and have just loved playing snotty punk music since then. But it was mostly created out of boredom and hatred for the people around us. Devon: It started off with Davy and Travis rockin out in Travis's garage writing drunk. Davy, Rusty and myself have jammed for years. We were in a band called the Disowned and we are really use to each others writing style and know what each other like. Plus we are all super best fuckin friends!(FAMILY REALLY!) So with Davy and Travis came to me and Rusty, thus formed The Charge. What are some of your musical influences?
