The genre itself was defined as a separate movement from post-punk. Gothic rock stood out due to its more dark sound, with minor or bass chords, reverbs, dark arrangements or dramatic and melancholic melodies, having inspirations in gothic literature allied with themes such as sadness, existentialism, nihilism, dark romanticism, tragedy, melancholy and morbidity. These themes are often approached in a poetic way. The sensibilities of the genre led the lyrics to represent the evil of the century and the romantic idealization of death and the supernatural imagination. Some groups (such as Nosferatu, Inkubus Sukkubus and Noctivagus) may even include themes such as paganism and vampirism in their lyrics. Gothic rock then gave rise to a broader subculture that included clubs, fashion and publications in the 1980s,1990s,2000s.
