I had a quick squizz through CD #1 
of this triple CD set (for the price of single CD - it is a sampler I guess).
I was concerned it might be cheesy. 
The tools/engineering is somewhat cheesy (graphics icons, sounds) but 
the content and architecture is not.
Peter (Peril) reckons it is *too* dark. It is very dark. 
Yes, *mainly* guitar but Sobriquet, Black Lung, Crimson Boy are all synth.
ie 15% of the tracks have no guitar. 
I'd personally like to hear some without guitar *or* synth.
Anyone who used to be into goth but thinks they've outgrown it
I recommend this CD which shows the genre itself has grown too.
