Mephisto Walz are a gothic rock group formed in 1985. They have an accomplished discography behind them, having released many full-length albums over the course of their career, through Cleopatra Records and other labels. Many of their albums have received high acclaim from the gothic community and stand as early monuments to the movement.



Mephisto Walz was formed by Barry Galvin, in 1985, following his departure from the influential gothic group, Christian Death. Barry gathered an impressive line-up and later added Christiana on vocals, helping to mold a unique and classic goth sound.

The band's brooding atmospheres, melodic hooks, ethereal voices, washy guitars, and distinct production distinguished Mephisto Walz as a prominent and evolving act within the genre. Today, the amalgamation of these elements are what have established Mephisto Walz as a legendary band for their contributions to the death rock genre and as an inspiration for many other contemporary gothic rock artists.
