Gothic themed weddings are becoming more and more popular but this story shocked me. Supermodels are known to have the ‘fairtale wedding’ with the whole hoint covered in white and glitter but now it seems that the gothic wedding trend has reach the likes of Kate Moss.
There have been rumours circulating that Kate has asked her designer friend to make her a purple or black full-skirted gown trimmed with vintage rock ‘n’ roll charms. She has also allegedly asked artists Dinos and Jake Chapman to create centre pieces for the wedding. For thoses of you that havent heard of them, they are best known for creating works with the main themes being sex, disfigurement and death. All seems very unusual for the supermodel crowd. The wedding is set to take place in september so im sure we will be seeing the pictures over the internet shortly after.

Arcania: Gothic 4 is the fourth installment of the Arcania series and has been a bit of a mystery for fans. There has been a lot of secrecy surrounding the game and its content. The original release dat for the game was supposed to have been late last year but the campany that are making th game, JoWood Entertainment have said that it is now to be released October the 12th this year. They say this is to give the company more time to ‘polish’ the game which im sure is very exciting for all gothic gaming fans. Wikipedia describes the game: ‘Ten years have passed since the end of Gothic 3 and the world has changed – the Southern Islands have become embroiled in conflict, and set the stage for the player to brave countless adventures in the guise of a nameless hero. Decisions will have to be made which will change not only the future of the Southern Islands, but of the entire world. Old acquaintances and new faces will aid the hero or attempt to thwart his efforts throughout his journey.‘
Looking at the games official website the graphics look astounding but apart from that there is not much else that you can find out about it. The Third installment of the game, Gothic III has been given a four star review by most companies and critics so im sure the new game will be even better and we look forward to seeing the outcome.

Gothic Band evanescence have been working on their much anticipated new album from the start of this year. After their huge success with ‘Fallen’ (2003) And ‘The Open Door’ (2006) the band became more a more popular all over the world and became loved by people loving all music genres. After their first two albums the band took a break for a couple of years and came across problems with ever changing band members. Despite this they have worked hard on producing their third album, Amy Lee from the band has said “I don’t see the point in making the same record twice, so I always want to challenge myself to make something better, stronger, and more interesting than before. That takes time, but it’s worth the wait for me. Hopefully, it will be for the fans too. Look out for new music [in 2010].” So even though the Album has taken a while to produce and has kept fans hanging for months on end it is sure to be a show stopper.
