Anyway - "The Manticore" is..... REALLY GOOD!
The best thing they have done since "Midian" for sure.
A log of great riffs, less cheese, less gothy, more brutal, more Black Metal and more straigh METAL.

I can't believe I am typing this, but check it out, especially if you USED to like the band but jumped off a long time ago, like me.




I... uhm...

somebody, anybody confirm this is not trolling plz, don't want to taint my download folder with shit for nothing


It's not more black metal, though it's definitely more riffy and has more of a heavy metal influence. I don't really like it. Most of the gothic stuff is gone and the symphonics definitely take a backseat to the guitars. Not the kind of sound I like from them.

I had no idea it could work like that. I can see how the last album may be considered good by the standards applied by someone who knows the band from say, Nymphetamine onwards. I can't see how the last album may be considered good if you are aware of the early albums. Old CoF and new CoF cannot coexist! They are practically mutually exclusive.

I could be wrong, even if that is unlikely. But really, the new album is much like all of their recent works, not heavy metal - heavy plastic. It'll take quite a drastic lifestyle change for me to be able to appreciate it.

I never thought of CoF as straight metal. A little fruity perhaps.

Man, I just knew the new Cradle of Filth album was gonna be badass 'cause in the last issue of Rue Morgue it got 4 skulls and Malignancy's new one got 0.

I am no troll, and all of my posts on here are serious.

I listened to the whole thing again.
And again, I myself was surprised, IT IS VERY SOLID and can win back some old fans/gain them some new ones.

Give it a YouTube listen or an illegal download for sure.

I love the first few COF records and this one will be a keeper.
Nice mix of old Cradle with a hard HEAVY METAL sound at times.
They should have been doing this for the last 15 years.

Their death metal demos are killer. I think I made a thread on here about them and an original member said a vinyl compilation may happen. Hoping for that.



There you go mate. Knock yourself out

This sounds great. Some cassette fuzz, but absolutely tolerable. I'd rate this bootleg fidelity at 7.5/10.

Gavin Baddeley's The Gospel Of Filth comes highly recommended for those wanting to dig deeper into the influences of the band. It's PACKED with rare photographs, alternate logos, discarded album covers etc.

In a haze of drunken nostalgia I revisited my first and only CoF experience tonight, Nymphetamine, and with a mild amount of shame I will admit: I mostly enjoyed it. Cool

I only have the Vempire (or Dark Faerytales in Phallustein) EP, but they did some good cover songs (Slayer, Sodom), don't care for them at all nowadays.
But I remember a punk that really liked COF and sold us hash back in the day, he had his room full of living snakes. Today he's a skinhead in Vienna. Time goes by.

The 3 first albums + the Vempire ep is all good to me, really like it.
Midian works sometimes aswell.

I heard that the australian pressing of Principle on Modern Invasion features the original, and unused, artwork picturing Salome with the head of John the Baptist printed inside the booklet. Anyone who can confirm that?

Voted for Principle (Duh!).
About a month ago I bought a Russian bootleg cd of Dusk... at a second hand store. It has a different logo, just a Misfits kinda font, and a less extensive booklet and it looks very weird.

I am surprised at the generally positive view of these two bands. Even back in their heyday I think most of the purists thought of these bands as commercial cheese. And these purists generally liked commercial metal that would be shunned here. For myself I never liked either band. I thought For All Tid had too much happy go lucky for black metal. COF I never even really thought were BM, more like some sort of extreme goth with a toy poodle yapping along.
