Cradle Of Filth Check In With Studio Report

CRADLE OF FILTH's bassist Dave Pybus has posted the following at the band's official wesite:

"I guess this report is turning into a weekly affair as things here in the studio are moving at a great pace. It's all top drama, for sure. Things go good, things go bad. Pretty stressful being here in the middle of it all. That's the name of the game though. If you can't stand the heat... erm... go to the pub! If you can't go to the pub... go to the toystore! Me, Martin and engineer Steve Carter took a quick break and drove to the Modellers Loft toystore which saw me spending near £300 on 'War Criminals of the 20th Century' Dolls. Amazing. I could have spent ten grand, easy!

Anyways, I'm sure you're not reading this for my personal interests, although the band this week has taken a turn in Paul and Martin revealing their innerselves by finally adding their members chambers to the website. They assured me to finish them by adding photos this week and watch for Dani's to be updated soon. Maybe I can get James to add his too.

As for the album... lots going on with us recording the last few drum tracks for the songs on the album, plus a few extras, including the rumoured SAMHAIN cover 'Halloween II' (from their 1987 album November-Coming-Fire). Funny how my bass amp blew on recording the first four bars, delaying recording for a few hours. Jinx or what! Guitar tracks are sounding great on top of the previously recorded drum and bass tracks we did in the first two weeks. Can't wait to start adding keyboards and samples (spooky noises especially) to give the songs their true feel. Anyone out there who's wondering how 'electronic' it's gonna sound should be aware it's not fucking 'Dance' music we are doing. We are a EXTREME METAL band utilising different elements to produce a certain atmosphere in the vein of early John Carpenter soundtracks. Like, say, you could cite the Hellraiser movie soundtracks as influence on the orchestra on 'Damnation', keyboards are just as effective in creating a horror feel. Maybe some sad people out there should get off certain unhealthy message boards and go and educate themselves in different kinds of music before slagging us few who are actually doing this for the love of horror music and trying to push the envelope a little.

Next week we are gonna start a competition to win exclusive items from the studio. Watch this space for details.

Dave"

Cradle is one of the worst bands of all time...the lead singer sings exactly the same all the time and they are a bunch of posers for brain dead morons who think can't get a girlfriend worth spitting on and take it out on their ear drums. They should stop posing as satanic losers and just make some wicked music...Metallica, slipknot, system of a down, pantera, static-x... those are bands worht listening to.

C.O.F. has rather creative videos. No i think scary is a better word. The singer has a weird, monotonous voice if you hear them for a long time. They arent that great..make them go away.

You all are morons, if you dont like the music then dont listen to it. In my opinion, cradle is one of the most talented and creative super heavy bands out, and they are making music for people like me who can appreciate it. So f***-0ff and have a nice day :)

as much as i would love to respect COF, i can't in my opinion there THAT bad, now im not gonna insult you all for liking them, cause thats pointless, but there really not talented if u ask me, they sound like there whining/screaming into the mic and they add these farfetched/crappy sound effects which dont even fit or blend with the song...

and people who dont like COF can like other metal, which i do (\m/)

Unless you absolutely hate a band with a passion...don't say they suck...they're great but their not my favorite. Gunslinger, just telling you Dani is married with a kid...so don't go too heavy on the insults.
