A band from England that formed between 1991-1992. People who say the are black metal are right, and wrong, and vice versa with people who say the aren't. They are orchestrated black metal. And whether you want to admit it or not their earlier work, and I'm talking first few albums, was black metal. And just because they've gotten mainstream because they've actually got some talent doesn't suddenly and magically make them poseurs or some kind of new music or genre or anything. It means they're good and people like them. So instead of having black metal, or orchestrated black metal, die because the only bands allowed to call themselves black metal have to be either underground or from sweden/norway, why don't we embrace the fact that, as with all music genres, black metal is evolving and growing and that is a good thing? Anyway, this mighty band hails from England and currently is made up of Sarah Jezebel Deva (backing vocals), Dani Filth (vocals), David Pybus (bass guitar), Charles Hedger (electric guitar), Paul Allender (lead electric guitar), Martin Skaroupka (drums), and Rosie Smith (keyboard). They are releasing their newest album, Godspeed on the Devil's Thunder, on Oct. 27th 2008, and will be touring throughout the U.S. All hail one of the greatest orchestrated black metal bands of our time!
Them; Cradle of Filth is just a bunch of filthy poseurs!
