COF is the poor mans Carpathian Forest. COF aren't even Black Metal.

Carpathian is a great example of a great BM band!!
Concert guy: "sorry guys but the Mighty Mayhem isn't here to play, so instead we brought in COF"

black metal fans: "fuck COF they arent even black metal!" *shoots the concert guy*

black metal fans: "kill COF in the name of Mayhem and TRUE Black Metal!!!"

Despite that many people deny this, Cradle Of Filth IS a black metal band. Black metal is a kind of metal that consists of concentrated tremolo picking, and inhumane screaming for vocals and black metal is very atmospheric. Cradle Of Filth parallels to the definition to black metal, just because they have gone mainstream, doesn't mean that they're fake black metal.

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!

While technically not bad musicians they have become the super stars of the black metal scene. Headed by frontman Dani Filth, a bombastic idiot who is an ultra poser on all accounts. Listened too mostly by the sheep that shop religiously at hot topic they have created a sound which is commercial black metal and deviated completely from the true black metal culture. A culture based on murder and arsen.
