A band with a name to match their talent.
Guy #1: Did you hear that new cradle of filth song? It's siiiick.

Guy #2: If you're in to metal that sounds like a fricken dog on meth, then I guess you're right on this one buddy. I'm gonna listen to some iced earth.

A good symphonic metal band that is neither death nor black metal. They are great, and these faggots are scared because of all the bands in the extreme metal genre, cradle of filth is the most popular. Although popular in thir own field, many people have no idea who they are and the only airtime ive ever seen them get was on Uranium(fuse). They are good and as close to black/death metal as you can get. Another people tend to turn away from them is their attitude. They make fun of themselves, referring to the collection "lovecraft and witchhearts" a compilation of "musical excriments". They, although look satanic are not. They dont go around sacrificing things in the name of Satan or things of that sort. But thats what people want who are into this kind of msic style. Cradle of filth have ctaegorized themselves as "black metal for bastards". Overall a great band, and has almost no commercial popularity, so dont worry-indulge in good, wholesome CoF!
Cradle of Filth is almost done recording nymphetamine!
A band who true "goths" or so they seem to think themselves hate because they are popular, and they are popular because people like them for the wrong reasons. They aren't really black metal, as they have become far too cartoony and are almost making fun of themselves, but as musicians they can play their instruments well, better than any punk band.
