The Vanishing - Songs for Psychotic Children (2003)

SPOOKY ALERT!! This goth-y, synth-y slab of death rock is sending my Spook-O-Meter into the red. In spite of the ironic tone of the previous sentence, I actually think this is a really, really well done throwback to 80s goth rock, performed by people who know their shit and are sincere in their love for the subgenre.

Track listing:
1. Intro
2. Princess Poison
3. White Walls
4. Lost in Pictures
5. Into the Arms of Fire
6. Glass Is Falling
7. Obituary
8. Sighs on Pyres
9. Terror, I've Been Dying to Meet You
10. Outro

Your head is burning in the fire
It's time to go
