Symphonic Black metal/Gothic extreme....a classic in this genre and probably one of three important albums by this band, Cruelty And The Beast, Midian, and Godspeed The Devil's Thunder are all must haves by this band. Ultra dark and sophisticated music skills combined with outstanding poetry and uber black metal darkness. All the while a great team of engineers and an obviously expensive production. For fans of Dimmu Borgir, Behemoth, Satyricon, and Sothis.

Although MANY would disagree, I actually think this e.p IS pretty cool, The title track 'From The Cradle To Enslave' is admittedly a work of total genius by Dani & the boys, then you have 'Of Dark Blood And F**king' another song which is a strong contender for one of my fave COF songs from any record. Thier cover of Anathema's 'Sleepless'....well, I do like it a lot and the guitar sections, in places are really cool, although its a song that I'd take or leave, pretty much.
The cover of the Misfits 'Death Comes Ripping' is just very funny, especially when the rest of the band join in for the 'woah ohhh...'s makes them sound like their singing karaoke down their local pub... that song makes this e.p memorable! .....then there's '....... Church' every review Ive read has slated this song so much...saying why is there a crappy techno song on a supposed black metal release?! I do like this song....its something different and experimental, although I am glad this is Cradle's only foray into making dance remixes!
The last track, the be quick or be dead version of 'Funeral In Carpathia' I must admit after a first few listens I was still thinking they had truly murdered a classic Cradle song, but after listening to this version and the version on 'Dusk...' I am of the decision that this alt version is acceptable, I cant entirely forgive them for changing the '..never leave me..' bit to a baritone male voice, or changing the bit I liked the most, Dani's ear splitting screech of the word '..CARPATHIAAAAAAAHHHH!!!..' but still, I can listen to this, and in fact this whole e.p and not really get bored with it.
So to sum up, if you like your Cradle blacker than black...you wont find it here, however if you feel the need for something a little 'unique' and different, then try this.

This EP is probably worth the money just for the title track "From The Cradle To Enslave" which is pure genious and probably one of my favourite CoF tracks. The cover tracks are also very good especialy the cover of Athema`s "Sleepless" which i like a lot. There are also two other great tracks on their but im not quite sure about the remix, i mean if your going to spoil a record why the hell cant you put the track at the end of it.

This E.P. isn't just a stop-gap release until Cradle's next full-lengther. This is a representation of how far they've come in their five-year recording career. The title track is absolutely brilliant! This is the sort of song that they've been promising to deliver for years. Despite Black Metal purists crying "SELL OUT!", this is hardly the sort of thing you'd see on Richard & Judy. The guitars still screech and grind as before, the bass still rumbles like Satan with the two-bob-bits, the drums are still battered at speed and Dani still screeches like a banshee but it all somehow seems to sound a lot better than before. Second track "Of Dark Blood And Fucking" see's the band thrashing like madmen, echoing prime-time Slayer and Morbid Angel. The two cover version's (Misfits "Death Comes Ripping" and Anathema's "Sleepless") are good as is the "Be Quick or be Dead" version of "Funeral in Carpathia" but the only thing stopping the E.P. from getting the full five stars is the "Pervert's Church" dance remix of the title track. I just don't understand remixes that cut out the lyrics, thus taking away the theme of what the song is about. Remix aside, let's see if Cradle can capitalise on this new snappier sound and follow it up with an album that follows suit.

I have the version with Funeral In Carpathia and it's worth it just for that 1 track... I LOVE IT. The others are listenable with the exception of the remix which in my opinion is complete and utter rubbish.

from cradle to enslave is an ep that in some ways could be deemed as a single as it contains two new tracks,album opener from the cradle to enslave and of dark blood and fxxking which are why this ep gets three stars,as they are blinding and pretty much essential cradle classics,filled with melody,spite,rage and classic stylish sounds.The cover version of the misfits death comes ripping is great but cant better the original so its inclusion is somewhat in vain in that respect.

sleepless is an anathema cover and again doesnt quite deliver the goods if im honest,then we get a remix of from the cradle to enslave which is hideous,shocking and makes me ill,whats the point of this dance nonsense,i wish i knew.then we get a remix of funeral in carpathia which is pretty poor yet again so if you are a cradle completist then get this but it wont change your life,if you are a casual fan then this wont make you want more of the band.
