Flowing Tears

Originally operating under the longer name Flowing Tears & Withering Flowers, this German band forged a successful career from 1994 to 2013, ranking as one of the better European gothic rock/metal bands of the era. Their style was roughly in the ballpark of, say, mid-period The Gathering, with impressive vocal performances from vocalist Stefanie Duchêne (and later, Helen Vogt) leading the way.
