Black No.1 is a Gothic Darkwave band with metal roots and descends from the north of The Netherlands.
We named our band Black No.1 after the epic song by Type O Negative. To us their music is an enormous source of inspiration just like the music of Tool, The Cure, Faith No More, The Wounded, Dead Can Dance, Laibach en Gojira.
The thing that distinguishes Black No.1, apart from the humongously tall singer/bassplayer and one handed drummer, isn’t just the fact that we are a male and female fronted band without the use of grunt but also that the female vocals don’t go opera.
The most striking remark from our audience has been that we are an absolute unit within the band and with our audience in such a way that from our music, through our music somehow a new energy is born.
