Why so Elitist? - Cemetery Confessions

This week we chat with Gopal Metro, co founder of Bella Morte, Gild the Mourn, Brighter Fires, and his current project Metro Pirate Radio. We spend some time discussing his history as a musician and goth with elitism and gatekeeping and debate whether or it has a place in the scene. We also tell some personal stories of struggling with depression and suicidal ideation, and how that relates to goth culture. You can get music from Gopal and support his projects by visiting his patreon page.
