I just re-read Barker's incredible novella The Hellbound Heart and, consequently, also re-watched the first Hellraiser movie. This made me wonder about Barker's influence on extreme metal, and all I could come up with was Dimmu Borgir's Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia and Cradle of Filth's Midian, which were both rather late, so there must have been other bands that beat them to it. Any thoughts on this and on Barker's work in general?

Big fan of horror films but that first film (the only I saw) wasn't up to my liking at all. I might re-watch, guess I missed something.

Anyway

As soon as such bands atatch themselves to anything be it a book or a movie then they only tarnish it with their rubbish.
Thankfully these pretty boys have stayed away from A Clockwork Orange.

As for his work. Only Nightbreed is real.

Beat me to it. Morticians 'Hell on Earth' is a good example.

There was a time when every other smaller death metal/hc band used Pinhead samples.

Barra Xul - The Lament Configuration. Maybe too modern for some tastes here.

Not extreme metal, but Manilla Road had that track Midnight Meat Train back in 1988.

I'd be more interested in Weaveworld or Imajica songs, but that doesn't lend itself to extreme metal as well.

Based on the lyrics I always thought “to the gory end” by Cancer was about the helllbound heart.

Cradle of filth used Doug on the Midian album.

Skinny puppy sampled hellraiser on the rabies album.

Impetigo sampled raw head rex on the Giallo/antefatto EP.

Crypt Kicker sampled hellraiser on the unusually high level of hate LP.

Is Entombeds Hellraiser theme too obvious? Entombed imitated horromovie melodies in their early days and especially Hellraiser suited in their imago

Sorhin used a couple of lines from Hellraiser 3 (which was pretty awful). Luckily Doug Bradley delivers even if he's in the worst movies.

"Jesus Christ!"
"Not quite."

As shit as the film is it has one of my favourite quotes.

"There is no good Munroe, there is no evil, there is only flesh"

Isn't Midian a direct reference to Clive Barker's Nightbreed?

This band has tributes to Nightbreed,Hellraiser, Lord of Illusions and Midnight Meat Train

I heard various Doctor Channard quotes from Hellraiser 2 as samples on Gore Beyond Necropsy's demo I Recommend You Amputation as well as a Hipermenorrea album I listened to the other day

the best use is definitely Hell On Earth by Mortician

as far as his books I think the Books Of Blood are the horror highlight but I prefer Weaveworld and Imajica - Mister B Gone was great fun too - I never like The Damnation Game as it was too amateur - might have to reread Cabal in preparation for the new series
