Nice - its great to see mention of Death in June and Current 93 on here. I went through a heavy "dark / apocalyptic folk" phase several years ago. Current 93 is still one of my all-time favorites. David Tibet's visionary lyrics are fascinating and Michael Cashmore's backing music is some of the most beautiful I've heard. "Lucifer over London" is a favorite of mine. Also, from the brilliant Thunder Perfect Mind album:

Current 93 - Rosy Star Tears from Heaven - which includes one of the creepiest demonic voices ever.

And their rendition of the old english ballad Tam Lin is sublime:
Current 93 - Tamlin

To add some more to the festival of Gothicy music - I think this kind of fits:

Lycia - Ionia
