Band Photo: Cradle Of Filth (?)
From: Suffolk, United Kingdom
Last Known Status: Active
It all began in 1991, the first of an unholy trinity of demos was complete. The young lads knew they had started something dark; something evil; something out of this world. They didn't disappoint with the release of their debut album 'The Principle of Evil Made Flesh' in 1994 on the label Cacophonous. The full length CD was a menagerie of gothic keyboards, metal riffing and Vampyric imagery. In other words the ultimate hammer horror soundtrack.
Drawing from an incredibly infinite list of influences, including the likes of Bathory, Celtic Frost and Diamanda Galas, and also the literary genius of Lord Byron, Sheridan LeFanu, Friedrich Nietzsche, Bram Stoker and Charles Baudelaire, Cradle Of Filth have produced albums of ever increasing quality. Soaring, sonic masterpieces that envelop you and take you away into the darkest depths of the collective Cradle mind. A dreamlike place full of legend, myths and Vampyres.
With 10 years in the past, Cradle Of Filth only have the future to conquer. Their recent concerts have built a fan base they never dreamed of. They truly have withstood the test of time.

"The Filth gives you a look back into its early days, and about the best thing that can be said is that it will make you appreciate the band's modern sound much more."
"A less cheesy, more focused Cradle of Filth offers up another entry that will be loved by fans and hated by detractors in about the same way as all previous albums."
"A great mid-way release from Cradle of Filth with new material, remixes, and an interesting road documentary."
"A continuation of the band's 'Cruelty and the Beast' era music that gets Cradle Of Filth back to a heavier sound."
