Biblical themes litter this epic masterpiece from the dimensions of filthy hell itself. The now five piece filth have created a majesterial album surely worthy of praise from Satan himself.
MUSIC
The music is amazing...filth have the fantastic ablilty to alter their sound according to concepts and themes within the songs, and that on which the album is based upon. Guitars crash and destroy heavenly deities whilst Paul, Dave and the addition of keyboardist Martin riff themselves to death. Despite only having two guitarists after Gians sudden departure filth seem stronger angrier and more agressive than before. As Dani hinmself said..it certainly dosent sound like a two guitar album.
The music is incredibly strong pulling you into the tide of the story and concept whilst matching it admirably. The biblical theme is echoed in the riffs (SEE doberman pharoah) and filth and co have even added egyptian sounding instruments (think sitars!) to add depth to the sound.The only complaint i have of this album is the fact Martin hasn't done any instrumentals. He did however write the choir sections...but the album lacks something in the fact it doesn't include such masterpieces as Creatures that kissed in cold mirrors...which i feel is a dying shame.
VOCALS
Next the addition of a 30 piece choir and film orchestra...which filth forked out thousands for...contribute heavily to the theme and sounds..layering Damnation with thickly textured angelic voices. Giving the album the quality of a horror soundtrack...Dani only completes the aural fest with his own unique and unrivaled vocals. Shrieks and tortured screams rent the air...hisses and spoken passages...prattled between deep dark grunts...in his own words these seriously are 'Dark Immortal Screams!'.

This, as you've probably read above, is Cradle of Filth's major label debut. Before this release, they've been on various labels, from Music for Nations to Abracadaver. In order to understand just how great this album is requires an examination of their previous releases.
First off, it should be said that if black metal isn't your thing, you probably won't like this album at all. It does have some classical appeal. However, if you prefer the musings of the likes of Coldplay this probably won't be your bag.
There was one thing that let down every album previous to "Damnation and a Day" - budget. Instead of swathes of strings and choirs of angelic voices we got the 'General Midi sound-a-likes'. (Though, to be fair, Dani Filth and co were doing the best they could.)
But now on a major label, the obviously very talented Mr Filth and company have secured the services of a large orchestra and an equally large choir. Substituted for the ‘MIDI’ affair of previous albums, the music now truly sounds epic, sweeping, and full of gothic majesty.
The long and the short of it: if you like your music heavy, gothic, beautiful, slightly unhinged and at times scary, Damnation and a Day is truly superb.

I keep hearing from certain reviews that cradle have sold out on this album. Yes, its different from Midian and Cruelty but in no shape or form have they sold out on this album. Theres stil the satanic and evil lyrics, heavy riffs and amazing drums. Dani's voice is still the same and as long as it stays like that Cradle will never be classed as sell outs. This is the longest album they have made clocking at 75 minutes. There are 5 instrumentals and 12 songs.
Song by Song -
Promise of fever - excellent start to the album, the first few notes are amazing as are the lyrics - 10/10
Hurt & Virtue - another brilliant heavy track. 9/10
Enemy led the tempest - one of the best on the album. more heavy drums and bass. 10/10
Better to reign in hell - fantastic, another excellent track. Dani's vocal is out of this world. - 10/10
Serpent tongue - not a great track. Quite tedious 8/10
Carrion - another great track. 10/10
mordant liquer of tears - ok, but nothing great - 8/10
presents from the poisened hearted - second best track on the album. love dani's vocal on this - 10/10
Babylon AD - great track, one of the singles. 9/10
Manequin - the first track i ever heard by Cradle. Didnt like them to start of but eventually got into it. excellent track. - 10/10
Thank god for the suffering - excellent ballad type song. 9/10
the smoke of her burning - without doubt the best track on the album - 10/10
there are five instrumentals, each one is very dark and atmospheric. brilliant 5/5 for all.

It seems years ago when the cradle boys entered the studio to record this album but anyway here it is, in all 17 tracks and 77 mins worth of music.
The first thing you will noticed about this album is that the production is a great deal better and a 60 piece orchestra is used throughout the album due to a fatter wallet. The album also seems to have a lot of new fresh ideas and a different direction has certainly been used here. It seems that the cradle are trying hard to impress again just like in the early days.
The album has an extreme edge to it right from the beginning and tracks like "An Enemy Led The Tempest" shows the progression of the band into their new agression, with ferocious drumblasts and crunching guitar riffs. There is also a sort of catchier side to this album and often you will sing riffs or lyrics in your head for no reason,"Serpent Tongue" is a good example.
Dani's voice is very varied and there are even hints of type o negative parts throughout which give the album that extra strength. The songs are too varied as you have slow tunes, fast and mid tempo due to the number of songs on the album.
The only thing this album lacks is that killer stand out tune. Yes some do come close but there isn't that "cruely brought thee orchids" or "her ghost in the fog" that makes this album that wow factor. In all its glory "Damnation and a day" should keep cradle fans happy as well as making new ones, however they have still not,and probably will never beat their reign back in '96 and '98, when there albums were masterpieces. Although it is a good album this album falls short of their previous efforts.
