It has been a while since a good Gothic photo spread has been shot, but the Dead is Dead editorial was surely worth the wait. With fall and winter nearing your doorstep, this is just the beginning when it comes to a new slew of dark and cold editorial themes in place of happy-go-lucky beach scenes.

Shot by Marius Tharaldsen for Sva magazine, the Dead is Dead photo spread is on the creepy side of Gothic rather than the glamorous side seen in the Victorian era. In fact, the images in the Dead is Dead editorial are so dark that it would have been a great piece for the Halloween season.

Thanks to the art direction and design by Norway-based Fredrik Melby, the Dead is Dead editorial is taken to an otherworldly level.
