The Subsubgenre of Darkwave

From a Boston Globe interview today with deejay Laura Wilson of WMBR.

Q. Goth is a subgenre of rock, but now there are subgenres of Goth.

A. It can get really confusing. There's ethereal, there's darkwave, there's Goth ambient, and Goth industrial. Some people consider industrial to be Goth, but I don't. Goth has to be dark, melodic. If it's straight-up headbanging industrial, it's not Goth.
Good to know.
