Not Cradle's Best But Certainley Worth A Listen
on 15 April 2003
Firstly to all those complaining that this is just the same as Cradle Of Filth's other records then this is not, this is a very different CD from previous ones such as Principal Of Evil Made Flesh and Dusk.......And Her Embrace.
Secondly, the drumming isn't too bad. No where near as bad as it's been made out to be.
Third, Cradle are a different band from Dimmu Borgir (who you should really check out) so of course they're going to use different techniques. You'd soon complain if they didn't.
As a stop - gap album this has to be one of the best, the cover of Sisters Of Mercy's "No Time To Cry" is amazing. The 3 re-recorded songs (Summer Dying Fast, Black Goddess Rises and Principal Of Evil Made Flesh) sound so much better now. The Principal Of Evil Made Flesh album had a raw quality but these versions sound much better (especially Summer Dying Fast). A top album, not their best but still worth a listen.
If you like this then check out Midian, Cruelty and The Beast and Damnation & A Day. If your into their older stuff then get Principal of Evil Made Flesh, V Empyre(Dark Faerytales In Phallustein), Cradle to Enslave or Dusk...And Her Embrace. If you're new to Cradle Of Filth get Lovecraft and Witchhearts or Live Bait For The Dead.
