The 'Godfather of Goth' as he is often referred to, due to his long face with high cheekbones, low voice and dreary lyrics, has come a long way since the Bauhaus days.
His latest and ninth album, appropriately named Ninth (2011), is a testament to Murphy reclaiming what is rightfully his and becoming the leader of the genre once again. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Murphy describes the album as "full of swagger and immediacy."
