Based on a description of their live show I heard once, sure.

GNOME OF DARKNESS LEAD SINGER: "Thenk yew. This next song is about dead virgins."

Search: the album & song titles. Destroy: the actual music. If it's heavy-makeup gothy black metal you want, there are a lot better ways of getting it.

The music video I saw of them had bondage women, deformed midgets, wrist slitting with violin bows, ripped off faces, and other bloody assortments (search? destroy? i leave it up to you).

uhhh. well. at the risk of embarassing myself in public, again, i would say that "midian" is alright. bubblegum black metal; cheesy, overdone, but also much more accessible/listenable on a regular basis than nokturnal mortum, profanatica, mayhem, etc. the video for "her ghost in the fog" (best song on the album) is also quite a treat; once again, all i will say is "coordinated leather bodysuits - WITH NIPPLES!"

I couldnt care less for the music myself but destroy their promo company, annoying shits.

I enjoyed their "Jesus is a Cunt" t-shirt campaign, but their music -- and whole aesthetic, really -- is just silly, silly and thrice silly.

This is exactly why they are CLASSIC. I don't own a single album and probably never will, but I feel just a little bit happier knowing that groups like Cradle Of Filth exist. "Her Ghost In The Fog" is one of the best songs I heard in 2000.

Cradle Of Filth is the most HARDCORE band that will ever be. Dani has the best voice I ever heard. Play on forever. I'll buy every album.

they are christianized weaklings, not even fit to lick my vomits.

baby cradle of chritian shits, more like.

Mr. Vas Djifrens (byzantum), Saturday, 12 November 2005 16:23 (twelve years ago) Permalink

For first thing, they have many gay melodies in their music, as well as structure and other weakling songwriting tendencies. For the second thing, they openly cavort their philosophy so as to appeal to females.

Janne, it's been so long since you post, are you well?

I look up this phrase (A strange expression indeed!) and it is so to mean: not bad, just OK, etc. This is how you are feeling?

Janne Karlsson (moley), Sunday, 13 November 2005 23:14 (twelve years ago) Permalink

I guess it is.

Better to have a sparrow in the hand than an eagle in the skies, as my bulgarian grandmother used to say...

Also, stare at a goose and you will no doubt be the one who honks tomorrow. Many times I have had the occasion of to ponder this wisdom.

Janne Karlsson (moley), Monday, 14 November 2005 00:20 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Yes, I have often considered that saying, an epithet for fans of the Greek (so called) 'True Metal' band Iced Earth.

i have an epitaph for the fans of iced earth

'they died as they lived-as christianizing pussys'

Mr. Vas Djifrens (byzantum), Monday, 14 November 2005 01:42 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Yes, and what is with it in the name of themselves. Iced Earth? They are some kind of sweet teacake, so we are to think? 'Please, Ripper and your friends, pass me an iced earth and perhaps also a sweet custard tart for it is high tea in the parlour of metal pussies!

Janne Karlsson (moley), Monday, 14 November 2005 02:24 (twelve years ago) Permalink

I couldn't agree more, their own coarse and uninformed model of Norse mythology backfires and becomes an idiomatic embarrassment that exposes their own willful goonishness, it cracks me!

Know they not that during the real third occurence of Fimbulvetr, Naglfar, the ship made out of dead men's nails, will carry the frost giants to the battlefield, Vigrid....

But that is for another time and place, just because we know eagles eat bagels, it doesn't necessarily mean beagles hate seagulls if you get my drift, Hoij!

Yes, I have specific objection to Cradle of Filth melodies, some of which use hejaz and other Islamic-influenced musical scales. They think we do not notice this! Ha! We notice, Dani Filth, we hear it all. Of this black metal impurity I will only say this: when you sleep under the frostmoon, wholly unwatched are your carrots and your cabbages. No more than this need be said.

ten months pass...
search: the principles of evil made flesh
destroy: most everything else, crap live as well, the vocals were about 60 times louder than anything else in the mix

I once really pissed off a German by telling him Nightwish sounded a bit like Cradle of Filth.

dani's description of a new meatloaf song in the newest decibel had my laughing up a storm! i'll type it out for you guys cuz i'm nice. the whole exchange is pretty funny:

filth: awful. this is like the music that would be on something like Save The Last Dance, that sort of film about a struggling black dancer in the heart of the Big Apple. and he meets this woman who trains him. this would be the bit where he's coming back to life in the spotlight. and he'd be in the spotlight, and he'd just be rehearsing...and he does these spins, and suddenly he'd spin around and there'd be a whole crowd of people.

allender: i only like the Bat Out Of Hell album. The first one.

filth: Shat Out Of Hell. that should be our next album, with just a huge anus on the cover, but like really, really worked up...pshhew. dragon bursting forth.

'the black goddess rises' is a really good tune.

hard to tell how serious these guys were even way back then, but this tune is... competent and fun!

Charlie Howard, Tuesday, 20 November 2007 14:44 (ten years ago) Permalink

I quite enjoy their cover of Heaven 17's "Temptation."

Alex in NYC, Tuesday, 20 November 2007 18:16 (ten years ago) Permalink

"Competent and Fun" should be the name of their next album

That bizarre exchange from 2005 made this thread worth clicking on.

lol it kinda seemed like a satanic Monty Python sketch

Those guys are on other black metal threads somewhere. Really funny stuff.

I like Vempire. so sue me

Hammer Smashed Bagels, Sunday, 12 April 2015 18:27 (three years ago) Permalink

Oh yeah it's the only CoF record that is worth holding on to. Does everything the band ever wanted to convey in a brief and intense thirty-odd minutes.

That 2005 conversation is exactly how I've always imagined It and All of Abruptum talk to each other.

Devilock, Sunday, 12 April 2015 22:11 (three years ago) Permalink

Tried to search their other conversation about their goth girlfriends called stuff like Morgana and Lilith, but no luck.

Janne Karlsson was obv moley/colin but I don't think I ever knew who Mr. Vas Djifrens was. Classic in any case.
