Biography

Suffolk, United Kingdom (1991 – present)

Cradle of Filth is an band, formed in Suffolk, United Kingdom in 1991. The band consists of Dani Filth (vocals), Paul Allender (guitars), Charles Hedger (guitars), Dave Pybus (bass), Sarah Jezebel Deva (backing vocals), Rosie Smith (keyboards), and Martin Skaroupka (drums).

In 1994, Cradle of Filth was signed to Cacophonous Records, on which they released their first album “The Principle of Evil Made Flesh”. Cacophonous also pressed the “Vempire or Dark Faerytales in Phallustein” EP in 1996. After this the band were signed to Music For Nations, for whom they produced three of their most prominent full length CD’s to date: “Dusk and Her Embrace”, “Cruelty and the Beast”, and “Midian”. The “From The Cradle To Enslave” EP and a compilation dubbed “Bitter Suites To Succubi” also featured many original songs, as well as some covers and re-recordings of old songs. Then in 2003, they signed to Sony and released only one album on this record label, “Damnation and a Day”. At the beginning of 2004 however, they left Sony and signed to Roadrunner records, through which they released the albums “Nymphetamine” (2004) and their latest “Thornography” (2006). They also have their own label Abracadaver on which “Bitter Suites To Succubi” was released. They hope to sign bands to this label in the near future. On Sept 27th 2008 Roadrunner Records and Cradle of Filth made available an MP3 download for “Tragic Kingdom” the first sample of the upcoming album “Godspeed on the Devil’s Thunder” due to be released in October (available here)

    Jen: 'Cradle Of Filth'? I presume that's a band. Richmond: Hmm. Jen: It's not literally a cradle of filth? Richmond: Ooh, no! That would be horrible!

    мне кажется что на уёбков и дегенератов больше похожи те, кто на полном серьёзе молятся сотоне и живут в лесу как дятлы.

    Venus Aversa is a killer record, the bonus disc has some of my favorite songs of theirs too (beast of extermination & behind the jagged mountains).

    I finally got around to listening to Venus Aversa and I am incredibly surprised by how good it is.

    "it's so good to have Total Fucking Darkness available in a version that isn't a messed-up amateurish tape-rip. Hope the other demos get the same treatment." Especially Darkly Erotic.

    People care too much that this isn't true black metal that they can't see there are some good albums from this band. With that being said Midian is probably my favorite album.

    I don't give a fuck what people think of this band. They are entertaining and therefore enjoyable to listen to.

    меня больше всего прикалывает, когда попсовики и педокорщики, наслушавшись речей "авторитетных" товарищей трындят о продажности кредлов, видимо желая этим самым поднять свои котировочки в среде взрослых дяденек, что указывает на их жалкую и ничтожную натуру болотного слизняка, испытывающего душевные страдания от осознании своей полнейшей никчёмности и уёбищности

    ну Abhorrent, Her Ghost и From The Cradle To Enslave то вкусняшки, а так ниочём хотя уверен, что много вопящих, что "коф-кал" в свою говнарскую молодость их заслушивали)

    их можно уважать только за то как они рвут задницы всякому быдлу, формирующему свой музыкальный вкус посредством поедания говна с лурки и прочих параш :)

    Usually disinclined to care about this band these days, but it's so good to have Total Fucking Darkness available in a version that isn't a messed-up amateurish tape-rip. Hope the other demos get the same treatment.
