Here's the way I see it.

Cradle of Filth are british (well, not all the members but COF was formed in britain and Dani is british and most of the origional members were british so they are british).

And British metal bands like to do things slightly differently than American metal bands. Take Iron Maiden for example, they were around the same time as Metallica, they are both Heavy Metal bands and yet sound very different.

Cradle Of Filth are a British version of Death / Black Metal. Their music and themselves has all the qualities a black / death metal band needs to to be picky why don't we called them BBM / BDM (british black / death metal).


Anyway, I think COF are an amazing band, just discovered them 6 months ago and allready I am well into their music. I started by listening to songs like: Presents From The Poison Hearted, Her Ghost In The Fog, Saffron's Curse and Cruelty Bought Thee Orchids.

I recommend COF to anyone who is into gothic type music and lyrics, someone who into bands from HIM to Slipknot could like COF. Hell! I am into many different bands and still like COF, amoungst my CD collection is: iron maiden, white / rob zombie, marilyn manson, HIM, slipkot, s.o.a.d, disturbed, murderdolls.

so this just shows that wotever type of metal you're into there's always a place for Cradle Of Filth in your collection who are currently at the top of my CD pile :)

A really great black metal band from England. They have really great guitars, haunting keyboard solos and best of all they have anti-christian lyrics inspired by 14th century gothica. I'm waiting for them to go on tour because I hear they kick some major fucking ass.

cradle of filth are a good metal band - they have there own sound unlike anything else, i would not call them black metal cuz there more black metal than anything else, there vocals dani filth has a amazing voice, he can do normal melodic singing but he prefers the screeches,
cradle of filth revolves around dani filth. No one really knows anything about the band besides dani. The teenage fan base (usually the feminine) see dani as a sex object. but really with none of the other band members there would be no cradle.
There best albums are "Midian", "bitter suites to succubi", "dusk and her embrace", and "damnation and a day" (in my general opinion)
there latest album "nymphetamine" is also very good. but its alot more melodic than any of there other albums, i enjoy listening to it, but the other fans slag it off.

Cradle of Filth fan: have u heard the knew song by CoF, its called gilded cunt.

Scary-BM-Pagan-Dude: poser! cradle suck! im gunna burn down churches cuz of u know!

A good band... I wouldn't consider them as black metal, because it's more symphonic. They have tons of cd's, and Dani filth is motherfucken hot! Their new cd nymphetamine came out, and it's pretty damn good. If you like cradle of filth also check out Dimmu Borgir Nightwish and Children of bodom

one of the greates bands of all time, and probably very underestimated.even through many changes in the band line they still prove to be one of the best.Why? Dani Filth. He is the adhesive that makes it work, probably one of the most dedicated musicians today. he struggled to make that band work and they do deserve notorioty in and out of thier genre.
you want to succeed, work like Dani and Cradle of Filth
