Editorial Reviews

Cradle Of Filth first burst into the sanguine-drenched spotlight in the early 90s. Smarter, more ambitious & more fiendishly creative than any of their Norse metal counterparts, Cradle Of Filth emerged in 1991with a fully-formed & multifaceted sound; a cunning amalgam of venomous black metal & high gothic drama that immediately elevated them above their peers & grabbed the attention of the global metal community. Over the last decade, the legend of Cradle Of Filth has only grown, with sales exceeding 550,000 in the U.S. & a headlining spot on last years Ozzfest 2nd stage. In Nymphetamine, Cradle Of Filth has delivered an album that is at once their most explosive & their most accessible.

*takes deep breath* Alright, people... You have made me peeved to the highest extent with all your complaining of "oh, CoF isn't tr00 black metal, they ruined the name" or garbage such as "dani sounds like a little girl". GET OVER IT!! I DON'T CARE!! If you have absolutely nothing worthwhile to say, don't even say it. Constructive criticism is one thing, but childish bashing is the lowest form of reviewing you can go by. The last thing I want to read is some elitist saying, "cradle of crap suck, go listen to dark funeral or gorgoroth." Listen. I consider myself a metalhead of all sorts. I like CoF, but I also happen to like Burzum, Darkthrone, Judas Iscariot, Mayhem, Leviathan, and many other BM bands. Heck, I even like power metal! I could just as easily listen to a band like Dimmu or CoF as I could Graveland, Krieg, or Xasthur. "Elitist" has become a tab for "narrow-minded parasite". So to everyone that complains without reason, open your mind. Go listen to Ulver or Agalloch, it opens a whole new world to you... With that out of the way, on to the music!

Alright, I admit it. I was scared about CoF signing to Roadrunner, home to many nu-metal/metalcore bands, which formerly held mentionable death metal bands as well. (How the mighty have fallen, I suppose?) The metal community in general was left in skepticism and doubt after 2003's bombastic "Damnation and a Day", and this album was said to put the fellows in CoF back to their old formula of Maiden-like goth metal with tinges of dark romance. And it has, without a doubt. No symphonies or choirs to be found, but we now see the beloved twin guitars, gothic keys, and vampiric atmosphere known to old CoF releases. Dani's lyrics mark a return to sexual bereavement and debauchery laced with vampirism and romance.

To me, this British black metal bunch reached their creative peak when they made "Damnation and a Day" in 2003. That album was a brilliant concept album that told a story about a war between Satan and God. Once you reach your creative peak, and it is impossible to out-do yourself, the most you can hope for is something that is equally as creative.

The philosophy behind 2004's "Nymphetamine" is that it is "a lot easier to swallow than `Damnation and a Day.'" This is an album without a concept behind it; an album that you can listen to it without worrying about following a story or understanding the lyrics. "Damnation" sort of put a dividing line between fans (some thought it was "cheesy" and "boring"). So, making a follow-up album that is relatively simple and "easy to swallow" is a smart move, in my opinion.

That's not to say that this album isn't creative, because it is. It's just not AS creative. For an example of "Nymphetamine"'s creativity, I suggest you proceed directly to the two title cuts. (These two tracks fuse melody and prettiness into the brutality and ugliness.)

But, aside from the lyrics, "Nymphetamine" isn't very far removed from "DaaD." It actually almost picks up where they left off in 2003. Both albums are full to the brim with opaque riffs, brutal blast beat drum patterns, and blood-curdling shrieks. Furthermore, like its predecessor, "Nymphetamine" has Satanic chants (what sounds like "eeyah, eeyah, ktulu, katagen") and instrumental interludes. Therefore, I don't see how anyone can call this album "a return to form." Calling it that is sort of insulting "Damnation and a Day." I mean, come on! It's not like Cradle ventured into mainstream, nu-metal territory and are just now getting back to their brutal, black metal roots.

Now it may say 4 stars which is great but I have alot of problems with this cd, I have been a die hard fan since 1999 and From 94-02 they released nothing but beautiful metal (no NOT black metal) then Damnation and A Day came out, and the story behind DAAD was great and Dani told it very well, to bad the actual music just wasn't up to par with it. Then a few months prior to the release of Nymphetamine, Dani Filth said the next cof album would sound like DAAD meets Cruelty and The Beast. Being that Cruelty and The Beast is one of my favorite COF records, I had early high hopes. The day the album came out I bought it and listened to it one time through, I had early mixed feelings and a sense the album had Zero direction. It just seemed to have less emotion then on earlier cof work. I despise the new guitarist James wish they would bring Gian back he is in a completly different league then James. Hell most of the riffs sound like recycled riffs taken from other cof songs. The lyrics aren't as good neither are Dani's vocals he used to have balls when it came to his vocals. There is nothing ballsy about this record period. It is a good album though and still the best of the year, thats how good cof is. Now onto the single Nymphetamine Fix. It finishes what Mannequin started. Getting all the nu-metal kids into cof, its pathetic you can always tell when you are reading a review from a new cof fan because he jsut goes on about how great the songs are here, but has no comparrision, or analogy of it. I mean one reviewer said "All metal bands have some satanic element" Yeah well what about christian metal bands lke Zao and Norma Jean? THink before you speak kid. Another one bashes "True black metal fans" by not liking this.Read more ›
