Cradle Of Filth

British black metal band Cradle of Filth were formed in 1991, originally comprised of vocalist Dani Filth (born Daniel Lloyd Davey), guitarist Paul Ryan, his keyboardist brother Benjamin, bassist John Richard, and drummer Darren. After recording a demo dubbed Invoking the Unclean a year later, the group recruited guitarist Robin Eaglestone, who quit soon after recording a second demo, Orgiastic Pleasures; however, when Richard exited the band a short time later, Eaglestone stepped back in to assume bass duties, opening the door for guitarist Paul Allender. Following a third demo, Total F**king Darkness, Cradle of Filth -- with new drummer Nicholas Barker -- signed with the Cacophonous label, issuing their proper debut, The Principle of Evil Made Flesh, in mid-1994.

The lineup changes continued when the Ryan brothers both departed to form the Blood Divine (and Allender left as well), making room for guitarists Stuart Antsis and Jared Demeter and keyboardist Damien Gregori to debut on the 1996 mini-LP Vempire or Dark Faerytales in Phallustein. For the full-length Dusk and Her Embrace later that same year, Gian Pyres took Demeter's spot, and afterward, Gregori was replaced by keyboardist Les Smith; at any rate, the album substantially expanded the group's growing cult following. COF's next effort, Cruelty and the Beast, appeared in 1998, amid the group's steadily growing reputation for elaborate Alice Cooper/Marilyn Manson-style concert theatrics. Two years later the group returned with From the Cradle to Enslave, an EP that featured new drummer Adrian Erlandsson (formerly of Sweden's At the Gates and the Haunted), as Barker had departed to join Dimmu Borgir.

The band's dizzying lineup changes continued apace as Paul Allender rejoined the group and Martin Powell (ex-Anathema and My Dying Bride) replaced Smith on keyboards for the full-length Midian, which was appropriately released on Halloween 2000. Bitter Suites to Succubi was issued on Spitfire in summer 2001. The group added a choir and orchestra to the lineup for 2003's Damnation and a Day on Red Ink, and moved to Roadrunner for 2004's Nymphetamine. Thornography followed on Roadrunner in 2006, a year that also saw the release of The Cradle of Filth Box Set. Eleven Burial Masses, a collection of live material, arrived in 2007, followed by the concept album Godspeed on the Devil's Thunder in 2008, which saw Erlandsson replaced by new drummer Martin "Marthus" Škaroupka.

In 2010, the band left Roadrunner, signing to Peaceville in Europe and Nuclear Blast in the U.S. for the release of its ninth studio album, Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa, a concept album that focused on the myth of the demon Lilith, the alleged first wife of the biblical Adam. It was the first Cradle album not to contain any instrumental tracks, and also featured the sole appearance with the band of keyboardist Ashley Ellyllon, formerly of Abigail Williams. In 2012, reduced to the trio of Filth, Allender, and Škaroupka, the band released The Manticore and Other Horrors, on which they did a bit of a turnabout, returning female vocals and hardcore punk riffs to the fore. A deluxe remastered and expanded edition of their early demo Total F**king Darkness was slated for release in May 2014, featuring additional, previously unreleased tracks. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

lordnokmar

i was just listening to Hollywood Undead, how did i get to this...im not complaining, so please dont hate me
Gotta say Godspeed was genius!!! Great story telling, vocal delivery and instrumentat i o n . Not one moment of boredom. HORNS UP!! \m/
I thought I'd get more black metal and less melodic death metal when I made this station. I already have like 6 melodic death metal stations.
I've been a huge fan for many years. Got to meet the band at a show in Denver. Have 3 C.O.F. stations on my profile .
I cant get enough of their Evermore Darkly album
Bitter suites succubi, crulty an the beast,from the cradle to enslave,an the best of,
i love the hell out of the nymphetamine
Love the old stuff.
Tonight In Flames! Our deaths will be the start of something glorious! These were my old rebel days! Hah! Fuckkk yeah!
this is such a great band i normally skip round till i find nymphetamine . or her ghost in the fog. two great songs by them. love every band on this station actually
Her Ghost In The Fog is probably one of the most poetic songs I've ever heard....alt h o u g h I guess the same could be said about most of COF's songs. \m/ Love em.

Cradle rules

Furthermore, in reference to the Megadeth comments. Really!? Megadeth!? Dave Mustaine pu**ed out and actually appeared on 60 minutes! He's even CANCELLED tours with such bands as Rotting Christ, just because he deems them too evil fir his tastes! Enough said...

@iTunes... CoF is not nor were they ever black metal. It is an insult to actual black metal listeners to label them as such. Even in his book, Dani stated they were of no such label.
Right!? Megadeth is amazing!
Uh,no. Megadeth is a lot better than cradle of filth... Megadeth was an essential part in making heavymetal what it is today. Cradle of filth cant compare to them.
Phenomenal instrumental s ! This band has so much talent and are way underrated in my opinion. No matter their religious beliefs, they truly are skilled and talented musicians.
i have to say that since the first son i heard from Cradle of Filth was Honey and Sulphur, i'm a bit biased for thier newer songs, but i love the flow of all their songs regardless. i could listen to Cradle of Filth forever!
if you dont like Dani's vocals then your a punk b**ch
MEGADEATH? are you serious? these guys s**t on megadeath
michellemcda n i e l s
Megadeth? Are you deaf?
They have a little bit of a Megadeth sound. Nice!
I called my the radio (89x) and requested them to play something less sucky than weezer cause that was the last thing they had played. He asked what my all time favorite band was. I said I didn't know, cause I like everything from Johnny Cash to Slayer and Pantera. And at the time I was requesting Tool. And he told me to check out Cradle of Filth. So they are going on my Pandora. And we will see if i like it or not.
im ganna f**k u in the a**....to this song
buddhomind
I love to hum to the lyrics
love their early stuff better !! but still very enjoyable !!!! hails !!
