Johnny Hollow

This Toronto, Canada-based band describes their music as "ambient atmospheric electronic gothic chamber rock." We've been enjoying their Sisters of Mercy "Temple of Love" cover during our listening parties at the Darklinks goth social network.

Their brand new album is "A Collection of Creatures." So far my favorite song from the album is "I Am Stretched On Your Grave.

My favorite piece of theirs is this Sigil of Lilith pendant.

Adorable, quirky goth art dolls. The artist grew up in South America, but now lives in Austin, Texas. Her Halloween section of her shop is my favorite, and I bet it will be yours too.
