It's quite simple, I would like to know what album of Cradle Of Filth you like best, with a good reason (an explanation in musical likability such as : vocals, drums and guitars or other).

My vote went out to Damnation and a Day, I really like what they've done there. Once again subliminal vocals, a full guitar sound, nice drums and immortal lyrics.
It's hard to pick a favourite song off of this one ..
I'd say :
The Promise of Fever
Better To Reign In Hell
Carrion
Presents From The Poison-Hearted
Mannequin
Bab(a)lon AD (So Glad For The Madness)
The Smoke Of Her Burning
Thank God For The Suffering
Hurt And Virtue

I know this is about half the album, but those are just kickass songs. This album made me love Cradle Of Filth!

Discuss your taste!

Midian!!! It's a perfect fast, symphonic, horroristic and melodic black metal album!!!

Damnation & A Day is by far my favorite. So many parts of that album stand out for me. The guitars on it are the best sounding of all their albums both rhythmically and tonally IMO.

Midian was my first CoF album, and I love Lord Abortion and Her Ghost In The Fog.

Nymphetamine is also quite good.

Except for a few tracks here and there of the others that's all I really listen to by CoF anymore.

for me its:
1- Cruelty and the beast- It was the first COF album I listened to, its a very consistant record and its very extreme, the atmosphere, the intensity and the whole concept album idea its awesome
2- Dusk...and her embrace- together with cruelty their best albums, period!

I can't possibly understand why you guys like Damnation that much... That album sounds like a never-ending single track to me, except for The Promise of Fever and Babalon A.D. COF had a super opportunity to play real symphonic metal with Damnation, but it's a total mess IMO... Anyway, my favourite COF albums are Dusk, Cruelty & the Beast and Midian. If I'd have to chose, I'd have to take Midian. Lord Abortion, Her Ghost in the Fog, Cthulhu Dawn, Amor E Morte and Tortured Soul Asylum are incredible. Midian sits on the edge between their old school keyboard-oriented extreme gothic metal and their widely rejected new "mainstream sound", with guitars put in the front. Atmospheric and melodic at the same time, with unforgetable nasty lyrics.

However, if Cruelty and the Beast had had a better production, it would have been my favourite. Even with the lyric booklet in hands, you can't make any sense of the vocals and the drum is barely audible. A blurry album that could have been a masterpiece... I know Dani Filth claims it is the album he's the most proud of, even though the mix is shit. THEN RERECORD IT, YOU ASS, IT WOULD BE MUCH BETTER THAN THORNOGRAPHY!

Their albums vary from very good to very bad, although I never listen to any of them. Dusk... And Her Embrace is their best album to, with Vempire and The Princinples Of Evil Made Flesh somewhere behind it. Dusk beats both of them by miles though.

Dusk...And Her Embrace.

They are my favorite band, though their newer songs EXTREMELY dissapoint me, but Dusk...And Her Embrace will always be my favorite along with Vempire.

My choose is "Dusk ... And Her Embrace". Definitely a brilliant album. Hard to choose between both brilliant albums "Cruelty And The Beast" and "Dusk ... And Her Embrace".

Midian is the best one to me... but i dont see much difference between Midian and their new stuff. So how can someone like Midian and hate Nymphetamine??
Its practically the same thing. Songs like ''Saffron's Curse'', ''Amor e Morte'' and ''Cthulhu Dawn'' easily could be put in the Nymphetamine tracklist.

The first album of Black Metal i have ever listen was the one who got me mesmerized. O_O

Please, get Live Bait for the Dead out this poll and put Godspeed instead, it's my favourite (well, at the moment...)

And I can't for the life of me understnd why Thornography is not in the poll while Lovecraft and Witch Hearts is. I know Thornography sucks, but at least it IS a studio abum, not a compilation...

Hmmm.. allow me to guess. Thornography wasn't released when the poll was created?

Yeah, realized it after having posted that message... Then, we'd have to create another poll someday, cause this one's obsolete IMO... Live albums and compilations shouldn't be in the polls, anyway.

As much as I hate to admit it, I actually like a song or two from Thornography. Like "The Fetus of a New Day Kicking" or 'Byronic Man". But it's still a biiiiig dissapointment. Nothing compared to other albums.
Anyway, my fav is their first album. The Principale, that is. Darkest and most brutal, but in the same time most melodic..... But the production seriously sucks ass, though. And the vocals are wierd.
Why do people like Midian so much? The only worse album is Thornography IMO.

It's spelled "Principle", actually... but most people write it Principal, for some reason.

Cruelty And The Beast is easily the best album imo. The first two are also great but Cruelty is like... 3 levels above the first two.
Cradle Of Filth never wrote a better song than the epic Bathory Aria. Amazing song.
