5.0 out of 5 stars Astounding Poinancy and Terrifying Intensity 13 Feb 2003
Format:Audio CD
There is a moment in the final track of this album, Haunted Shores, which is so exquisitely beautiful, so passionately evocative and so faultlessly executed that it will make your stomach tie in a knot and bring tears welling in your eyes.

With this album, Cradle capture the concept of the Gothic Romance with astoundingly poignancy and terrifying intensity.
This is music that speaks directly to the root of our very being, to the raw passion at the very core of what makes us human. This is an album for anybody who knows what it is to love, what it is to dream and what it's like when you live in a world that appears most of the time to be running in slow motion. This is music at the speed of thought, at the racing pace of unfettered emotion.
Remove yourself from any possible distractions, put this record on loud and surrender to the music; take my word for it, it'll be a truly magical journey - if you dare to believe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dusk and Her Embrace 10 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD
I'm an American who took the time to sign in the UK version of Amazon to review this great masterpiece of an album. Cradle of Filth is without a doubt one of the best Metal bands to come out of England. This is truly a brilliant band.

Cradle of Filth's early material is very much unlike what the band is producing today. I really like their earlier albums alot more. Dusk and Her Embrace is a Black Metal classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolute perfection 25 May 2012
Format:MP3 Download
With out a doubt this is one of the best albums ever created, not just within the black metal genre, but any genre. Staggeringly beautiful from start to finish, this album blew me away when I first heard it, and it remains a regular listen now. If you love intelligent, emotional music you won't be disappointed buying this.

4.0 out of 5 stars mystical Vampirey and mysterious and gothic 21 May 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is Very Atmospheric and beautiful
the music changes from Atmospheric keyboarding and dark string arangments to REally fast heavy shrill guitar with amazingly awesome shrieked vocals and harsh Growls with some tippy top drumming. the whole album is very Harsh sounding very agressive with some keyboard elements mixed into give it strong gothic overtones the lyrics are suitably vampirey and sort of 'hauntingly beautiful to quote I.T crowd I love it though I think Cruelty and the beast is better a bit this is still great though just not as catchy

4.0 out of 5 stars Heaven Torn Me 22 Jan 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Not the best CoF album,but nethertheless,it is great,with Dani's amazing voice,doing his 1000 words per minute screech and having a chick singing in the back ground.Nick Barkers best work for CoF[but it cant seem to compare to Dimmu],and the Joining of Gian which i think was the best player on the album,Damien donr a good job on the boards and unfortunatly left at the end of the album.It was also good for them to drop the 'Corpse Paint'.All up,it is a great album.No CoF fan will be disappoited.
Best Tracks:A Gothic romance and Haunted Shores.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer Beauty and Absolute Terror 18 Mar 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The erotic and vampyric imagery of this album makes it my favourite of Cradle's works. Although it seems short this is made up for by the sheer quality of the tracks, such as Malice Through the Looking Glass or Dusk and Her Embrace. The classical pieces on this album, whilst not up to Midian standards, are still deeply emotive.

By C. Hall
Format:Audio CD
What can i say about this masterpiece that hasn't already been said. It is absolutely stunning! This being cradle's third CD and possibly one of their moust astounding accomplishments. This album has lots of classical sounds going on from the grand piano sound through many of the songs, to the harpsichord at the beginning of 'beauty slept in sodom' through to the violin intro to 'haunted shores'. This album simply bleeds class. Dani's vocals are unworldly and extremely evil sounding on this release. Dani often goes from almost Peter Steele (type o negative) type baritone rumbling to ear splitting shrieks. Also special mention has to be given to Nicholas' drumming which (bar V Empire) sounds the best from his career with cradle. Also a special mention has to be given to Sarah and Danielle whose beautiful voices soar above the music throughout this album, especially the spoken word part in 'heaven torn asunder'. Now onto a track by track review.
1. Humana Inspired to Nightmare- 4* a very good intro but not one of cradle's best but still enjoyable enough and a good piece.
2. Heaven Torn Asunder- 5* possibly my favourite song on this album i absolutely adore this song especially Sarah's spoken word bit ('The most august sorcerers of hades...'). This starts off soft then builds up to a vehement musical massacre with dani spewing his guts as he screams 'storm choirs gather...'. Astounding.
3. Funeral In Carpathia- 5* this song is beautiful in composition. The guitar on the 'never leave me...' bit is super. Also once again Sarah and Danielle's voices are lovely and charming in comparison to Dani's screams.

5.0 out of 5 stars Too good for itself! 20 May 2003
Format:Audio CD
When this lbum was released in 1996, it was a truly unique and amazing work of pure disgusting genious! A major improvement on their previous work, this album was deemed too good for Cacaphonous! But in my view, it was too good for what Music For Nations could offer them too! Although the production was a vast improvement, it was still too raw and scratchy, especially the drumming which lets down the unbelievably amazing songwriting! This was truly something new and unique, especially compared to anything they have released previously and since! Dani's voice reached new heights, with a lot more variety than the usual monotone screech, with a lot deeper and freakier vocals being used which still havent seen any other release! There are some truly frightening moments where Dani uses his voice to the best of it's ability and creates quite a hellish and demented racket. Along with (Who i do belive as) Frater Nihil's demented and dark tones, they create a very freaky atmosphere! Anyway back to the music, this is also the first album that saw the genious of Gian Pyres on guitar and Damien on Keyboards. The new line up was much better and more skilled than previous, and the whole album was re-recorded to improve it from the previous members' poor efforts! But still this album deserved more than it got! Nugget's of pure unmistakable genious like 'Funeral In Carpathia', 'Malice Through The Looking Glass' and the title track all deserved better production, they were just too good for their time and label! If they were re-recorded now, they could take their already classic status to much better hieghts. The re-doen version of 'Funeral In Carpathia' on the 'From The Cradle To Enslave' E.P. is just perfect in everyway! Read more ›
