Bring on the posers...

Their stuff is OK, I just don't like the fact that they were average when they were black metal, and now they're bordering on the laughable at this symphonic rubbish they do now.

I also don't like the way that they've marketed themselves as being the gr1mmest band going around. Gets on my nerves.

Depends on which Cradle of Filth you're talking about.

Anything up until the Midian album I love. The rest, meh. They can have their songs now (I like a few songs from Damnation and a Day, quite a few from Nymphetamine, and Thornography just sucks imo.)

If you ask me, Midian was their beginning of their more "mainstream" sound, yet it's also the last album that I really love. And Nymphetamine has some really cool songs imo. (Gabrielle, Absinthe with Faust, English Fire, etc.) And personally, I find it to be overrated by the poser fanboys, and underrated by the old school fans.

The music's generally great, the lyrics are amazing, and the vocals fit the atmosphere, even though they may not always be the greatest. (Another thing, the vocals are very unique. Yeah, many may not like them, but you have to give the guy credit for doing his own thing.)

Cradle (along with Dimmu Borgir) have many "poser" fans, however I'm genuine fans of both bands, and not just some fake:
Poser: "um, yah, i liek cradle offilth."
Me (skeptical): "Oh, cool. What songs do you like?"
Poser: "um, dat 1 with the chik singing in it."
Me (to prove the guy/girl wrong): "Oh, yeah, Nymphetamine. I personally like the older stuff. VEmpire was a great album. I really like the song Queen of Winter, Throned and such."
Poser: "oh uh, i haven't heard that 1."
Me (in my mind): "Exactly... "

But anyways, I like them (or, well, the old them,) personally, and there's not a narrowminded "tr00 mettlehead" in the world that can change my mind.

Dani Filth's voice is so annoying.
Not a fan of C.O.F., really.
The whole 12 year old goth scene never appealed.

Cradle are just Cradle.

They are the Tim Burton of music. It's all very g0ffick and atmospheric, which is how we like things, but black metal n00bs have latched onto them like limpets, so now, every time I hear a Cradle song, I don't hear any of that. Instead, I just hear the things that all the mainstream poser-idiots are going to like, and that puts me off the whole chirade, really.

Erm, okay. Cradle's early stuff = kinda black metal
New stuff =/= black metal
The poseur fans are horrid. I consider myself neither as I only like a few songs, but as with any band, the poseurs are patheticly annoying. I despise the fourteen year old girls I see walking around with CoF shirts...I once saw a ten year old boy wearing a Bathory shirt (either the dad is amazing, or he is a n00blet)

I like the occasionally good guitarwork, I like Dani's vocals, they dont really annoy me, maybe cause I'm not a pussy -ponders- but anyway

As M4L said, I like their older **** and some of their newer ****

Personally I love some of their melodies like say

Funeral In Carpathia, A Gothic Romance, Beauty Slept In Sodom, I like the actual Nymphetamine song -yeah the video one, so what, biatches- and uh... Their cover of Mr. Crowley has a bad ass atmosphere and the vocals fit the song well... As for Midian, some of them have killer riffs of melodic moments, like the Intro riff to Amor E Morte, the later half of Saffron's Curse...

but wait! theres more! OH **** NO TIME BAI!

Just Dani Filth in general, vocals and as a person, I know people who've met him and apparently he's a complete dick.

Cradle is a really hit or miss band honestly. I own Dusk and her Embrace, Cruelty and the Beast and Damnation and a Day. Even on DahE, only about half of the tracks are really superb, and (in my experience) people call that Cradle's best album. I've heard most of the tunes from their other cds and well... About twenty-five percent of it kicks ass, and the rest is utter garbage.

I pay homage to them though because they were my border band into metal-dom.
I've decided that my signature is terrible. I'm open to suggestions.

I enjoy their older stuff much more than their newer stuff. Hands down, my favorite album is Midian. I liked some stuff from Bitter Suites to Succubi. Damnation and a Day has its nice moments too.

I really wouldn't say he's a dick, he's just not as open as the rest of the band. I think he hates the fans because of all the little kids running around claiming they love Nymphetmine, but they get scared ****less when they hear Funeral in Carpathia, which is probably why he comes off as a dick. Out of everyone in the band, my favorite is Paul Allender. He's such a powerful guy. He could have easily broken my hand with just his grip. He's very nice too, as well as Sarah.

EDIT: Also, the keyboardist they have is gorgeous. I can't remember her name though.

why do you care about other people's opinion so much?

Listen to the music and judge for yourself.


Isn't the point of a forum to discuss your opinions with other people?

Also, they aren't so bad. The vocals were a little....weird....to say the least but not bad. Not exactly what I would call black metal, but still not bad.

You're losing interest because you're simply not gay enough. Which leads me to believe you aren't cut out for metal.

Yeah, everyone that knows what they are talking about, sadly there are a bunch of fanboys that don't.

I love Midian, and I liked their earlier stuff too. Then they went way downhill from there. And as far from what I had expected to happen, they're starting to pick up again. Dirge Inferno was a good song, and off the Harder Darker Faster EP there were 3 listenable tracks (Snake Eyed and Venomous, Courting Baphomet, and Devil to the Metal). I'm not gonna get my hopes up any more than I had, but I'll still give them another chance.

Why does everyone say they don't like the vox? I really like falsetto vocals. I really don't see why people hate this band.
#28
I like the music and the vocals are alright (though they did take some adjusting to).
But basically COF were my 'stepping stone' band into metal. They are an accessible band that can lead people over to the dark side.
I may not have got into black metal if it wasn't for them. (Not saying COF is BM)

oh yes, it partly is. But this threadstarter didn't even give his own opinion, and nothing to discus about.
