I forgot to mention first witch house band to have GWAR like stage productions including witchy video collage, the first witch house influenced Britney Spears song and perhaps the emergance of the GG Allin of Witch House (I'm looking at you, Teacake ;) Seriously that'd be sweet).

But what makes it unique enough to count it as a separate entity? There's already so much diversity within the scene, what line was drawn with tropicult?

I'm gonna add more to this, but for now:

First scare-mongering news report about how Witch House is "The new drug fueled satanic teenage murder cult...will YOUR children be next!?!?"
First anti-Witch House Christian propaganda

Conversely, something which I hope to never see:
First band to mix Witch House with Metalcore/Screamo.

1) they gave it a name
2) they gave it a fashion style
3) it has a strong identity
4) they are actually PUSHING for this strong identity

It's pretty much all you need to count as a subgenre - there's about 5-6 artists doing it atm.

Off the top of my head it's just Myrrh Ka Ba, Fire for effect/ultrademon and Zombelle, actually :s ... maybe more to come. Also, actual name is Seapunk. I had a brainfart.

Other than that - I've been informed that Aural Sects have made a first by producing the first ever Witch House Podcast. That box was ticked before it was even mentioned...
