Urgh, it's dark, damp and one of the most depressing times of the year as we find ourselves deep in the throes of November's winter blues. The not-too-distant promise of Christmas shows a brief moment of respite on the horizon, but with festival season fading from memory and next summer feeling like an eternity away, here we are - brooding and feeling sorry for ourselves.
So rather than even try to look on the bright side, let's wallow in our misery! And what better way to do so than by celebrating the darkest and most depressing bands and artists in music?
Music can paint a world of colour and emotions, but let's face it - we're all drawn to the darker, more morose and seriously sinister corners of the spectrum, right? As winter drags on, here's our pick of the 23 most depressing bands ever. ENJOY!
