* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Usually in the 4-6 range- they rock a bit harder than most Goth bands. They also have a number that fall into the 2-3 range, and the instrumental intro "(Dead But Dreaming)" is a 1 (it's all synths). Some of the [[EpicRocking longer]] songs can run the gamut of the aforementioned levels of the scale, as well.
