Darkwave (1990-1999)

Darkwave is a music genre that emerged from Post-Punk and New Wave. It combines a dark, introspective, sorrowful, "gothic" atmosphere of Gothic Rock with Electronic influences, particularly Synthpop. Although the genre started as a post-punk style, eventually some artists started to make a greater use of synthesizers and drum machines, thus moving towards dark electro music (Electro-Industrial related style). As a result the term covers a broad range of dark "gothic" music with prominent synthesized sounds. 

Some of the most notable examples of the genre include Clan of Xymox, Lycia, L' Âme immortelle, Diary of Dreams, Deine Lakaien, Emilie Autumn and Dead Can Dance (the debut album).
