There has been plenty of debate over the years over this band's musical direction and the motives behind it. But whether you love them or hate them you simply cannot deny that this band has played a major part in bringing some of the darker forms of metal to the fore of this musical sub-culture.

Purely due to their controversial nature it is absolutely imperative we are able to look at their music without any prejudice or preconceived judgements. There was in fact a time when they were well respected in the Black Metal fraternity and this term is used lightly to avoid any immediate accusations of incorrect genre definition.

Perfect, perfect , fucking perfeccctttt!

I think this album contains my favorite bass sound. should be enjoyed with 18 YO smoky whisky or something... whores, roses and blood (of course) too
yes, there's nothing which should be changed here in my opinion.

Rating: 8 This album is almost flawless. Almost. Carmilla's Masque and nocturnal supremacy are filler material to me,but the rest of the album is solid\m/

Rating: 4 Worst vocals ever, too much symphonic elements, guitars buried under synthesizers... Couldn't listen to it after the fifth track. I hope their following album are better, specially the vocalist.

His vocals are pretty much all the same. If you don't like them here, then it's very slim you will ever like them. Dani's vocals are the deciding factor for everybody, you either LOVE them or DESPISE them.

That means.... I probably will never hear a CoF album again.

Rating: 9 Superb album and one of the best of the 1990s.

I miss Cradle of Filth - their newer releases lack the dark, gothic, erotic Hammer horror vibe of their earlier releases.
