    on another note thats what makes my favorite bands so likable is i can put on a song and catch the melody and be like this is "that song" instead of putting on undisputed attitude from slayer and be like, "they all sound the same" so cradle got symphonic so what it just makes things more dynamic and compositionally amazing

    the only song i liked by them was Gilded Cunt, dani filth is an arrogant gothic hobbit who sounds like a constipated poodle when he sings.

    Sounds very cool. Tha last concept albums very great. Ex: Cruelty and the Beast, Damnation and a Day

    Mainstream this, mainstream that. YAY. COOL. When a band has melody or something like that in their music that wasn't there before, it becomes mainstream? Or they start to do something new, not that old shit repeating round and round, that's mainstream? NO. It isn't but haven't you all got something else to do instead of bitching at every band that they are mainstream? Even if they are, what's the problem with that? GROW UP people.

    I don't like them as much, but you must admire the amount of work and the brief amount of time it takes them to release it.

    I must agree mainstream..blah blah..Ive never heard this band on the radio..ever..ofcourse I never listen to the radio lol. Cradle rules though, a new POEMF, or Dusk, would be sweet.

    If they release an album in the vein of the first three I'll love it, if it's like the new stuff, I really really won't.

    hopefully this is going to be more black metal than their newer albums. i liked them when they were more black metal. i can't wait to check it out.

    the problem is that the original fans of cradle of filth were into their black metal sound. that's the problem. if we like a band's sound and they change it, we're not going to like that band anymore. i did say they have fallen into the mainstream hole a bit, and when i say that, i mean their sound, their media coverage, etc. which is basically what mainstream music is. its bigger. its more known. and to do that in today's mainstream music, you have to change to conform to that sound. that's why cradle of filth have lost their true fans because of their change.

    yeah noone's heard of slayer before either lol sorry but your argument has a big whole in it its called "bands that rehash the same shit over and over"

    I don't think this band can really redeem themselves... Damnation and a Day was their last decent album, their last awesome album being Bitter Suites... only because of the remakes of the older songs.

    i dont listen to cradle of filth much at all but enough to know those who say its mainstream have their heads up their asses. mainstream=appeals to everyone. ive never heard em have any radioplay.
    Dakkstar
    P.S. It's not so much they have changed their sound it's that they don't produce good songs, they lost all the decent members. Nick Barker, Gian, Lecter, and Robin. Dani can't carry the band, sure it's his voice but the writing is weak. Just like metalcore everyone is sounding the same and it's all garbage.. melodies please.

    "music fans" rarely stand behind BANDS these days. You hear a band you like, you buy the "labum" and you rock out to it till their next one comes out. If they do one little thing different, everybody hates em and calls them "mainstream" and "sellouts". If they put out music that sounds the same, you hate them for not taking risks and being cutting edge. Talking crap about a bands new album before you hear anytthing off of it, is simply ignorant. Buy the album, then you have the right to "blog" about it or whatever.

    thornography didn't really suck. they had some good riffs, but it didn't really do anything to stand out.

    It's not really a mistake. It's a new CD format, called 'Labumm'. Check it on the net.

    Some of the bonus tracks on the Thornography re-release definitely hint at them going back, but I am also weary as if they actually will return to their roots or not.

    And by everyone, I do mean Dani Filth. Which, in retrospect, makes that statement almost laughable.

    Everyone's saying they're going back to their black metal roots, IE Dusk and Her Embrace era. I'm hoping this will be good. Interesting track titles.

    I hope they do. Thornography was f*cking terrible, and they used to be such a great band.

    I dislike the concept idea because of the many concept dissapointments lately (priest, cooper) but some songs sound awesome!, like Corpseflower and honey and sulphur

    I think Cradle flourishes when they're working with a central concept. Their first few albums were decent and most of them were conceptual. Just as long as Roadrunner doesn't throw a crapload of money at them a la Sony, then this concept album should hopefully not get too ambitious while still telling its story in an epic and interesting manner. There is always hope for bands to make a comeback, however impossible it may seem. A few more months and we'll see if Metallica can show us that bands can get back on the horse.

    Last interview I read, even Dani was saying that this sounds nothing like Thornography and then Paul came out to say that it had a lot more of the older style riffs come back. Personally, I'm hoping for "Damnation and a Day part 2"
    epptron
    cradle being mainstream is a joke..thornography was a damn good album maybe not their best but still kicked ass. dont over analyze and just enjoy it, or stop posting and start a black metal band and show us what cradle should sound like..or stfu plz haters! Im stoked just cuz this means a new tour!!! ps. first post ever!

    It's sad that when I read the "Guilles De Ray" the first thing that came in my mind were the lyrics to Lord Abortion.
