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)

    "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.

    Блядь, у них ничего, кроме композиции From the Cradle to Enslave, нормального нету. Почему так? Они что, все силы потратил на одну песню, а всё остальное вышло говном? Разочаровался я как-то.

    To this day, after listening to COF for 8 something years I still do not understand why they get so much hate! I am not much of a metal head these days, I just listen to music that speaks to me, regardless of what genre they are or how popular and mainstream they are. COF actually has talent, and a drive to make different music instead of sounding like a constant gutted pig looped, and their lyrics are one of the finest I have ever came across, and I listen to thousands of different bands spanning many, many genres. That is why I can not fuck with metal heads anymore, they are too close minded and judgmental, they try to hard to be hardcore and dark like they have something to prove. And I am not saying that is how every metal head is, just my first hand experience when I was huge into metal. Don't let labels dictate you, and stop jumping on the bandwagon, it is cringe worthy.

    CoF is black metal influenced extreme Glam metal that tries way to hard to be edgy, but it does have a couple of decent songs.
