Well, what I hope to happen to Goth in the future is for the world to turn into the world from Repo! The Genetic Opera but unfortunately that has a very slim chance of coming true. What I think will happen to Goth in the future will probably be the distinction of the Trad Goth.
Cyber Goth, thought I do enjoy it, seems to be on a gigantic rise. This seems to be transforming the music completely. I’m not saying that I don’t love high beat dance-y music but it just isn’t the same as those eighty Goth bands that used to be so many. Also the line between Rivet Head and Cyber Goth and Raver and Goth are blurring more so in my opinion. Which is a good thing for the scene but may make some more transformations.
Of course, every one can see Goth fashion being more accepted into the mainstream these days. I’m not quite sure of the result of this, it could be anything.
Anyway, this is just my two cents on the matter .Don’t forget, it’s merely two cents and my opinion.
