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.

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
Six feet deep is the incision
In my heart, that barless prison
Discolours all with tunnel vision
Sick and weak from my condition
This lust, a vampyric addiction
To her alone in full submission
None better
Cradle of filth

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 :)
Nymphetamine is coming this September ! ! ! that's just 2 months ! ! !

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!
Me;You're so ignorant.

An awsome British Black Metal band.
It is a very controversial subject on whether or not they are realy black metal or not. Some people are too concerned about what genre it's under, it sounds good just the same. Cradle of Filth is growing in popularity, but unforunatly there seems to be some ridiculous dispute between Cradle Of Filth fans and Marilyn Manson fans. I personaly like them both. People should just learn to respect the opinions of others.
Stupid Cof fan: "Marilyn Manson is gay!"
Stupid MM Fan: "Cradle of Filth is gay!"
Someone not retarded: "Stop arguing! They're BOTH fucking great."
