Cradle Of Filth Biography
Review The Artist (34)
The cradle is rocking, the dead are rising, the seas will boil and the skies will fall. As the world stands poised on the edge of mass destruction, the freaks, fools and monsters who rule us are about to be taught a real lesson in the use of power, for Cradle of Filth have created the greatest album of their career to date. 'Damnation and a Day', has been carved out of the darkness that is about to engulf what we know as civilisation.
The recordings, spawned from the loins of five of the most controversial Lords of darkness ever to walk the earth grew to their full strength at Parkgate, a studio set in the blood-soaked town of Battle, set in darkest Hastings. Inspired by their surroundings, the five Horsemen of the Apocalypse fed on the blood of Doug Cook who was unwittingly drafted in to co-produce and engineer the album. Little did he know that he was merely a victim.
Cradle sucked the knowledge out of their hapless victim and used his withered shell of a body to help direct them in their quest to create the darkest album they could possibly imagine, before disposing of his corpse in a ritualistic shooting. The bullet still lays lodged in his face. The corpse of course has never been found.
But the blood letting did not stop there. Daniel Presley, was hung, drawn and quavered after scoring the final pages of music for the live orchestra.
The death toll now standing at 10 (that's including the rest of the staff at Parkgate, who died slowly over the five months of recording), Cradle still weren't satiated, so a week spent in Budapest saw the death toll rise to 82 as they massacred the 40 piece orchestra and the 32 piece choir.
Hungary has once again fallen under the shadow of evil. Elzabeth Bathory will pale into comparison when this news gets out.
'Damnation and a Day' was scripted by the prince of darkness Dani Filth, whose quest to decipher the truth behind the Bible, brought him to summon forth Lucifer during a ritualistic killing. The once expelled angel willingly gave his side of the story from beginning to what will be the inevitable end for us. You will bear witness to his tale, during the 17 tracks of the concept album 'Damnation and a Day' which lies before you. Your death is nigh, so listen carefully and then offer your soul to the Filth and you might be saved, deny them and your destruction will come in many forms.
They will choose it, they will watch it and they will undoubtedly laugh in your tortured face.
The sonic soundscape that encapsulates the satanic readings were finely crafted from the cries that resonate from the depths of Hades by lords Dani, Paul, Martin, Adrian and Dave. The final stage was the mix. The two disciples known as Rob Caggiano and Steve Regina were called upon to aid the dark lords in their quest, along with the reanimated tortured soul of Doug Cook.
Once you have listened to what is to come, you will bow your heads to one of the finest albums to rise from the cradle.
Sony have now embraced the darkness and under the influence of evil have become slaves to the dark powers that have been engulfing them for over a year, all have committed their souls to spreading the message and will by the March 10th 2003 release unto us the future.
So go forth and cut out the tongues of the unbelievers, lay waste to the trash that assaults our ears every day, for that is merely a smoke screen to numb your minds from the truth, and beg forgiveness for your past sins. For if you don't, you're fucked.
World domination takes apart society as we know it in mid March when the Cradle swings into action and takes to the road to hell, first into Europe and then back to the US to follow up last year's sell out tour. So all the petty little people out there with their bombs and their guns better run away now, because it's show time and they haven't got a hope in hell, even if they do have an access all areas pass.
Cradle of filth have finally arrived at the palace of righteousness, ready to drain the blood from your face and whatever is left of your miserable pathetic carcass.

simply filth | Reviewer: shelby lambert | 12/5/09
I have been listning to cradle of filth for several years now.ihave studied his writting style up and down to get a better grasp on the english language to incorporate into my own writting.when I tell people about dani filth I tell them that shakesphere has absolutely nothing on this soul, being ,individual,thing;.... Whatever the fuck he is!!He makes you think that he knows god and satan personally.he is simply mesmerizing.I love every album they have ever made,but cruelty and the beast is an absolute masterpiece.for any non-fan of cradle of filth I reccomend starting with benighted like usher which is track eight on the cruelty and the beast album.I also advise that you never listen to a new song by them without having the lyrics right there in front of you. Once you listen to this song there is no going back.you will be on spiraling,descending staircase that only gets darker and never ends. --felonoftroy13

Christians.....Stfu | Reviewer: Will Edwards | 3/3/09
It is great that you love the band because they really are one of the best in the black metal scene but please dont try and cause troubles by trying to start shit about the religious meanings in the lyrics. If you feel so strongly about it and if they offend you....Then stop fucking listening to them. They play to please to the fans...The fans that understand and dont question because they understand that something other than god controls us. So please stfu with all the complaning about the religious comments
I is confused | Reviewer: Ivy C | 8/12/08
So yesh, i am a christan and i can not help to be captivated by this bands music. My favorite is A Dream Of Wolves In The Snow, and i always have to listen to it twice ^-^. Anyways, people say that they are satanists or w/e, but i havent read anything that states that they are. But if i do read something that says it, theres aother line that completely confuses me. It bothers me idk why but i have to know!
Oh yeah, and i dont know if its such a good idea to worship a band... there just very talented inspiring people who have a way with music. xD
how awesome dani is!!!! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/19/08
Dani is the sweetest,nicest, most down to earth guy as well as the band! I have met them all and spent the night with them recently. Dani is totally different from the appearance he projects on stage, as well as the immage he personifies! He's not fake or anything! it's just that on-stage he has to keep up the ''act'' or ''image'' like theater where as in real life, yes he's still into the same stuff, He just isn't performing, so he can be his off-stage self! Either way he is awesome as shit! He ALWAYS takes time to visit and take photos with his fans no matter what!!! Even if he's in a hurry and exhausted from a show! He takes time to hear each individual person and talk/reply to what they are saying or asking! Even when most of the comments were rediculous bullshit! He remains 110% polite and patient ! I guess he remembers that your fans are the ones who make you your money! He never forgets where he came from! That's what makes him so fucking awesome and special!!!!!

HER | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/22/07
I am a fan of COF... Allthough I have to say, that 'Thornography' was a huge disappointment. And Dani appearing on Viva La Bam.... Why, oh why?!
Dani filth | Reviewer: Luke Harries | 9/2/07
Dani Filth is a beautiful singer and all of the different vocal sound and he will always be the greatest singer that i have ever be in black metal and as a vampire. I think that cradle of filth rocks the metal world and he has the most beautiful family and keep your spirits high and i will always be there for you Dani Filth.
I will always vote for them in the kerrang and metalhammer awards.
polished like a shed on a porcelain wall | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/5/07
Cradle is an amazing band...and much different from others. It's not only the sound that separates them from many musicians, but also the fact there is a lot of old english literature and philosophical meanings in their music. Each album has a story and if you just sit down and listen to dani through the whole album you notice how each song on any of the albums continues the previous ones. Good example for this is "Damnation And A Day", "Midian", and "Cruelty And The Beast"...Oh and to settle this genre classification shit...They are just cradle of filth...I'm tired of hearing someone go like "they are black metal", "no they are heavy/goth/syphonic/extreme/metal" they are just cradle of filth...just like primus is primus....stop trying to classify everything just enjoy the music
