    I'm a former huge cradle of filth fan, and I'm really liking their new song. Everything after midian/bitter suites had my scratching my head.

    Her Ghost... is the only decent track on Midian imo, Bitter Sweets to the Succubi is a decent EP, Damnation and a Day and Nymphetamine are ok but the next lot of albums are arse from what I remember. Their last album Hammer of the Witches was really good though, I thought, more akin to Cruelty and the Beast.

    I just wish they'd take their time with albums instead of shitting something out every time Dani comes up with some "clever" wordplay.

    As someone who listened to the band for a very very long time. I can say that most of the problems with the bands writing came from Paul Allender. He's kinda ass at writing. Every song had that generic, simplistic guitar-shop metal riff in it and I would just cringe every time it popped up. A lot of the Paulisms that I dislike are in his band the white empress

    In their post-Allender days, it just doesn't happen. the songs are mostly way way better

    Yeah I used to absolutely love Cradle, they were my gate way to Black Metal along with Dimmu Borgir when I was about 14/15. Their new track is all right, it's not great but I'm not rolling my eyes at it.

    from Midian my favorite song is Lord Abortion, one of their "heaviest" songs, I really like the riffs. It was my gateway back to more extreme metal back then. And the lyrics are awesome once you start reading into them:
    He was born from a botched abortion that his mother had tried to have to rid herself of him. “Debris cast from the stars and Mother”…. debris from fate and his mother. He is a waste material from his mother that she didn’t want…but it was fated to be that way…and he knows it.
    The guy was fucking her mother in the ass and i guess blood came from it and the fetus, so the abortion was not normal as you can see, and then he began to grew

    Thus you have the “dub me lord abortion, the living dead”, give me a name lord abortion, he is like dead but living, the abortion was supposed to kill him



    He grew up on the women that his father beat up black and blue… He grew up screwing women that eased puberty through for him…when he was a teen and wanting sex all of the time…when his penis would stand at attention for absolutely no reason…other than the fact that his body wanted sex…they were there to satisfy him… And they became keepsakes (with sentimental value) to him in his memory…but other than that, they were nothing to him.



    “Nostalgia grows…” he is remembering what has taken place in his past, and now sex is old news to him…he is having problems with erections…He has to “dig deep to come” or cum…he has to do odd things to women to have an interest in them. To be able to have an orgasm he has to do things other than just have sex. Sex is no longer the same for him, he needs to experience more things in order to cum.



    He knows that he has to do “odd” things to women…and thinks maybe he could be gentler with them…but he likes hurting them…even should they have to die to get him off…to make him cum.



    He is counting how old he is…and he is counting his years by the women that he has been with…and is remembering all the “toys” that he used on them. And knows that he is unable to love a woman because he cannot respect them. They are “sluts” to him.



    “dub me lord abortion”…his own mother didn’t want him…this started the first chapter of his life…and he feels that his life has followed suit…He feels that he shouldn’t be alive, that he should be dead. It was a chop job abortion that was attempted on his mother…in the backseat of a car…and the abortion didn't work. He is remembering this while receiving a blowjob. (Oral sex). He fucks her hard enough to draw blood, tries to fuck her hard enough to reach her throat…and he wants her to choke on his cum… The joke of death isn’t funny anymore…it has worn thin through many uses…to many deaths…. He is a joke that wears breath, he is alive but he is mad with faith because he is like a joke.



    Diorama - A picture (or series of pictures) representing a continuous scene, killing women in order is his diorama.



    Ok…so he is after twelve women, one representing each horoscope or zodiac sign…this is his mental drama played out for real. He has another woman now. Chained. He means to hurt her. He will hurt her inside and out. This is his way at getting back at fate for the joke of letting him live. Fate…horoscopes…. you see? He is wearing a mask… so that she may not see him. He is hard and is cumming while killing her…Her cards are all coming up death…she is dying.

    Vermillion - Of a vivid red to reddish-orange color

    Her bleeding starts in her vagina or anus…I don’t know.



    He is falling apart in his head and he knows it. Watch your back he says…or he may kill you too. He is just a little sane, he is becoming insane and he knows it, that is if he is not already insane.



    He is prying hell apart and earning a quick way in…He is cutting the women..



    He kills in an informal way…or maybe semi formal…

    He thinks that he is still in the hands of God and that by killing he can earn his way into hell…he doesn’t want to be in the “hands of a dirty god”

    He says faith leads the truth astray…life went in a bad way for him.



    He falls in love finally with victim number thirteen…. She knocks him head, maybe she knew he kills women and tried to kill him in order to be alive but he is too strong and knocks her, then he falls in love with her. And right when he was going to kill her, she proves her worth again to him with a blowjob…And oddly enough…he just uses a lot of pretty words in this stanza…he loves her, but is still going to kill her…



    He strangles his love I think…she has hid nothing from him though…and he knows that he is insane. Then he kills himself…but bites his tongue in the end…lest the angels here him curse…He dies of blood loss…while the angels stare and stare and stare at him.



    He leaves one question to the listener…did he go to heaven or hell…were the angels staring at him and waiting to take him to heaven or kick him on into hell?
    Also the last part can say that he sees past romances are dead, gone and he cries when he sees them, but they show no emotion whatsoever.


    Jeffrey dahmer was a cannibal
    Debris...is ....The remains of something that has been destroyed or broken up
    keepsake - Something of sentimental value
    dub - Give a nickname to,
    chop job - an attempt to do something that failed.
    Chained or tied up. Fastened down so that she cannot move. Held against her will. He IS going to hurt her. He will use things like knives and other sharp objects to cut her inside her vagina and on her breasts....and other portions of her anatomy...
    He is getting back at fate for letting him live at all...
    He is getting back at fate by killing the zodiac a piece at a time through symbolism...the twelve women...
    He is afraid he WON'T go to hell and is making sure that he will get there...he doesn't want to take a chance at being put into the hands of a God that would let him be a botched abortion...and that would let him live with the stigma of that.

    I think that the last album that i listened was Nymphetamine.
    Checking metallum it seems that there is a lot of catch to do, plus that they have scheduled a new album for september this yar.

    Their new album has leaked so if you know where to look you can grab it now, if you do go through their stuff I honestly advise skipping Thornography. I can't speak for the quality of the other albums until Hammer of the Witches as I've not listened to them properly so I'm going off memory but I remember them not being very good.
    from Midian my favorite song is Lord Abortion, one of their "heaviest" songs, I really like the riffs. It was my gateway back to more extreme metal back then. And the lyrics are awesome once you start reading into them

    Oh yeah I actually forgot about Lord Abortion, really fun song.

    Most of Cof's albums are good if you consider midian/bitter suites (album + ep might as well be considered its own era) and everything before them.

    Damnation and a day - a few good riffs, but the album ultimately sucks.

    Nymphetamine - a few decent songs but nothing special. This album kinda feels like an album specifically written for hot topic chicks who love dani.

    Thornography - absolutely trash. the lowest the band has ever been. Under a Huntress moon is the only real cof song on this album.

    At this point i sort of lost hope for the band, godspeed and darkly darkly venus aversa are way better than thornography but ultimately forgettable. Manticore just seems like a pointless album to me. nothing stood out but nothing offended me.

    Hammer of the witches is a good album. Cof finally doesn't suck again

    Heartbreak and Seance, while only being one song has me very very excited for this next album. It sounds like old cof but not just retreading

    been listening to metal for about seven months now. 95% of it has been 80s thrash (eg. big 4, exodus, testament, etc.) which i found most agreeable when i started. saw metallica in a stadium show on sunday night and had a good time. haven't dabbled much in more extreme genres but some of dimmu borgir's songs have sounded somewhat interesting/palatable. i might end up not going any further beyond older thrash stuff but i'm open to more experimentation.

    btw are accuradio's metal channels a good representation of quality metal? that's mostly where i've gotten exposure from. maybe accuradio is secretly hated by longtime metal fans or something.

    I use the bandit metal station for the i❤️Radio app (that's annoying to type) they seem to play some of everything. I've heard old school Helloween and slayer and everything from Alestorm to Watain. Pretty good variety of metal.

    You are not leaving a lot of room for exploration. Have you listened to German thrash?

    Something tells me I shouldn't like this but the new album is way better than the sum of it's parts. This whole album would go off live.

    So finally finished all of Cradle of Filth's stuff as to where I think I can safely rank their albums, some I were wrong about when working from memory, think I'm gonna go do the same with with Dimmu Borgir next.

    Here's my current CoF album rankings for anyone who cares

    A tier
    1. Dusk... And Her Embrace
    2. Hammer of the Witches
    3. Cruelty and the Beast
    4. Cryptoriana - The Seductiveness of Decay
    5. Midian

    B tier
    1. The Principal of Evil Made Flesh
    2. Nymphetamine

    C tier
    1. The Manticore and Other Horrors
    2. Damnation and a Day

    D tier
    1. Godspeed on the Devil's Thunder
    2. Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa

    F tier
    1. Thornography

    thanks for the ideas. i listened to the first few and the melodies and keyboard stuff initially come off as a little cheesy i guess. i'll listen to the rest soon. maybe i'm excessively picky in that i like something more aggressive and riff-based than power/progressive metal (which is essentially what thrash accomplished in the 80s, i figure), while still being musical and not too abrasive/noisy. i generally prefer clean vocals, but not when it starts sounding country-ish.

    the only dimmu borgir song i can remember offhand by name is kings of the carnival creation (see below). the orchestra work adds atmosphere and complements the metal parts instead of making it sound like euro power metal and the vocals are about as manageable as i expect black metal to ever be. i plan to peruse that album and their other ones more thoroughly when i have time.



    arieswarlock: accuradio's channels play a lot of germans actually, like destruction, kreator, sodom, etc. i don't like helloween because it sounds like what i described earlier. and michael kiske's voice basically epitomizes what i dislike about that type of metal. the german band accept has been hit or miss for me. but yeah, i guess it can be concluded that accuradio's channels are playing the same songs too often so i need to branch out from that.

    @Gaijinblaze Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia by Dimmu Borgir is a great album, if you dig that you'll probably like most of their other stuff. When you have a chance check out Emperor, Anorexia Nervosa and Limbonic Art.

    I think I see where you are coming from. Have you listened to Toxic Holocaust? They are thrash, aggressive tunes, with a black metal sound and some punk influences. Short tunes but powerful.

    I've known the guys in NeO for 10 years and they initially started out at a Black metal band similar to early-Satyricon with a female vocalist. They brought in a violinist who listens to literally everything from pop to hardcore and he took over the cleans. They have groovy Cynic-like basslines, a French tech death guitarist who likes gypsy music, they have a guitarist who really likes Dream Theatre, a drummer who's friends with Derek Roddy... honestly it's easier to name what members of the band don't like and when you combine all those music influences the end result is some kind of weird Prog Death band with a violin and a combination of Carcass and Classical/Pop vocals.

    I was under the impression that they were relatively known.
    Most of the prog sites i frequent have talked about them at some point in a positive light.
    Also, i remember that i read somewhere that their music was added to the curriculum of a music college on Sydney iirc.

    I came here to post the new NeO single

    It's good they're getting the attention they deserve.

    I was under the impression that they were relatively known.
    Most of the prog sites i frequent have talked about them at some point in a positive light.
    Also, i remember that i read somewhere that their music was added to the curriculum of a music college on Sydney iirc.

    I guess they are now. I don't really go on a lot of music sites. The guys are friends of mine. I used to go to a lot of local gigs 10+ years ago and it's a small country with a small scene. I've known them all since they started out.

    Been listening to a lot of Akercocke in the car while working lately. Their unrelentless brutal mixes, the satanic themes, and arabic sounds that are used to represent the medieval imagery from hell all work so harmoniously I have them on repeat often lol. I need to find more bands like them.

    I've been trying to find more bands like Akercocke for years and found nothing. Akercocke did, however, get back together this year and have a new album dropping soon.

    Oh yeah, I know. I checked out the new song some months ago, but I didn't like what I heard. I noticed they are all going for the dad look now lol.

    Real story, I once had something with a woman from Spain. We it it so well for months, so much that she wanted to come to the USA to meet me, she was planing a flight. Some days or weeks later 9/11 happened. Everything got fucked up. She wanted a better job but things were not good in Spain, so she decided to move to London. We started contacting each other less frequently until we didn't speak anymore :|
    Then on Sep. 24, 2004, Akercocke comes to Ft. Lauderdale to play with Mortician and Vehemence, and I go with a friend to see them, great show! Then like two days later this girls messages me letting me know that she's friends with Akercocke and that she's gonna let them know to put me in the guest list. Thanks but a little late :s I asked her how she knows Akercocke, she tells me one of them (blond guy name Peter) works in the same building as she does. She's his girlfriend :|
    Why do I have to like Akercocke so much?? :angry: :anguished:
