Editorial Reviews

2 CD Special Edition. After 8 menacing albums, the kings of black metal return with their most dastardly tale yet. Chronicling the story of the world's first serial killer, French nobleman and soldier of Joan of Arc, Gilles De Rais. Like they had done with the story of Elizabeth Bathory, Cradle of Filth weave a tale of murder, the occult, and sinister deed around their trademark metal sound. Fueled by breakneck speed, crushing guitars, and haunting vocals- the band has delivered their hardest most aggressive and chilling piece yet. This is the 2CD special edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you hated Thornography, you'll love Godspeed... October 28, 2008
Format:Audio CD
There have been many fans who were disenfranchised with the band ever since the release of Midian. Still there were others, like myself, who have enjoyed all of their albums. Even many of us who had enjoyed all of their releases were disappointed with the release of Thornography, however. It was an album that attempted to make their sound more commercially viable, included a guest appearance by the whiny emo b*tch known as HIM, stripped away most of the keyboards, and included pathetic attempts at sounding like a dying animal, errr, uh, I mean clean singing by Dani. Godspeed on the Devil's Thunder includes none of this. It is a triumphant return to the Cradle sounds of old. It still may not please all of the fans of Dusk and Cruelty (though it might please some of them as well), but it is sure to please fans from Midian on, and fans who loved all of the albums except Thornography. Now, if you happen to actually like Thornography, you will probably enjoy it as well, but it does not sound like that album at all. The only softer song on the album is The Death of Love, though I find it more reminiscent of the title track from Nymphetamine than of anything from Thornography.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cradle of filth does it this time! November 12, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I must confess that I was really dissapointed with thornography and a little bit with nymphetamine. I think they lack the chilling atmosphere and the power that was present in midian, cruelty and damnation. Luckly, this is not the case of godspeed on the devils thunder! I would rather say that this album is better than damnation and it is at the same level as midian and cruelty. This is beacuse the songs are harder, faster and damned! they give chills down my spine as they have haunting keyboads, Sarahs signature vocals and a male baritone that really adds to the sick and disturbing atmosphere! the guitar solos are great as well as dani filth vocals! they sound very devilish and varied like in the past great albums! the lyrics and the concept of the album are great and seems like this album could turn to a black symphonic metal musical! do yourself a favour and buy this album!
best tracks for me are: intro plus shat out of hell, the death of love, the 13th ceasar, tiffauges plus tragic kingdom, honey and sulphur, midnight creatures....and darkness incarnate!

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, Finnally! November 2, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Cradle Of Filth have not released a record this good since their epic 'Cruelty And The Beast'. 'Godspeed On The Devil's Thunder' is a concept album (like Cruelty..was about Elizabeth Bathory), on this album the subjected charachter of study is Gilles De Rais. Gilles, a former right hand man to Joan Of Arc, was a merciless child murderer. Anyways, this is all just in good fun for those of us who get it...musically this album is extremly fast and aggressive. Seriously, it's their second best album. The production is amazing BTW.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back In Top Form November 16, 2008
Format:Audio CD
It seems I'm not alone in my thoughts on Godspeed On The Devil's Thunder.

Cradle Of Filth have returned to a sound more reminiscent of their days before becoming "popular" (which should not be seen as a bad thing) and Godspeed is their best effort since Midian, if not better. That's not to say that Damnation And A Day, Nymphetamine and Thornography are bad albums. Quite the opposite, actually. But Godspeed features COF utilizing the best of old and new. Musically, this album sounds more like Cradle of old (without being as brutal or as fast as possible), while Dani has retained the clearer (but rarely clean) vocals of the later releases. No Cradle Of Filth album has grabbed me quite like Vempire did when I first heard the band, though Godspeed and Cruelty And The Beast come close, followed by Midian.

As mentioned, the album tells the tale of Gilles de Rais, a man who served with Joan of Arc and supposedly lived a second life, dabbling in the occult and turning to mass murder later in his life. While Dani may have taken some liberties with the subject matter (as with Erzsébet Báthory on Cruelty And The Beast), Godspeed does a good job at telling the story, including the execution of Joan of Arc in 1431.

Lending his voice to Cradle Of Filth for a fourth time is Doug Bradley, who is best known for playing Pinhead in the Hellraiser movies. I thought his voiceovers were used too much and they seemed to be a bit of a distraction at times. Really, that's the only flaw I can find with Godspeed. Everything else is in its proper place.

As has been commonplace throughout most of Cradle Of Filth's career, not everyone from Thornography is around this time.

4.0 out of 5 stars (Un)Holy Hell October 28, 2008
Format:Audio CD
What a disc. That's my first reaction to Godspeed. The thing with it that makes it so good, so interesting is that this is, in my opinion, Cradle's very first TRUE concept album, with narration from Doug Bradley on almost every song (Tragic Kingdom doesn't feature any, but as the song is a virtual continuation of Tiffauges, this makes no difference to me). Damnation may fit this bell as well, but I feel this album more fully realizes that objective.

Some of the songs themselves are by far the best since the Midian era. Think melding the more metal-oriented keyboards of Damnation and Midian (vs. the atmosphere-oriented keys of old) with the technical songwriting of Thornography. (I still feel that, while different, as a general metal album, Thornography was amazing. Cradle, though? Definitely not).

Gone are the days of the Nymphetamine era, and back in with the way Cradle was meant to be realized (for the most part). If you've heard Dimmu Borgir's latest output, In Sorte Diaboli, consider this album to be similar, but minus the repetitiveness that plagued the aforementioned.

The only true comparison to the Nymphetamine era could be "The Death of Love," which soars above every song on that album except for "Guilded." Without a doubt, as well, it's one of the best songs on the album. It has its hooks, melody, and yes, Sara really hits the spotlight on this song. It's probably one of their only songs in recent years that's really stood out to me ("The Foetus of a New Day Kicking" [prior to it getting and popularity from that. The video is horrible] and "Under Huntress Moon" really come to mind here).

So that said, how can it recover from infectious sound that many fans have recently been dubbing "pop-ish"?
