Over the past year and a half, Cradle Of Filth have become one of my favortie bands. They are always accused of making black metal popular, being sell-outs yeah whatever. I am not here to drown on about close minded fools. So onto the album.
This is a beautiful album, I love every aspect of it. This is probably tied with cruelty and the beast as my favorite cof album. I just find the lyrics beautiful and inspiering in there own way. The music as well is just brutal at times and beautiful another/ If you are new to cof or black metal in general the vocal styles will be difficult to get used to at 1st. Now time for my thoughts on the songs themselves.
Humana inspired to nightmare - 4/5 One of my favorite cof insurmentals truly beautiful.
Heaven torn asunder - 4.5/5 A great full length song opener. Sets the mood well for this album
Funeral in Carpathia - 20/5 My favorite song off of this album and one of my favorite cof songs in general, a beautiful epic.
A gothic romance (red rose for the devils whor*) - 5/5 Probably the best example of beauty meets brutal on this album great lyrics as well.
Malice through the looking glass - 6/5 An incredlbile song, I love the orchestrated intro
Dusk and her embrace - 5/5 Title track for this album and a great song at that a real fan favorite.
The graveyard by moonlight - 4/5 Another great instrumental worth a few listens
Beauty slept in sodom - 15/5 2nd favorite song off of this album has some of cofs best lyrics.

Haunted shores - The best possible closing song for this album I love the violen intro.
So, to put an end to this review. This is a modern masterpiece in my eyes. I would not advice if you are new to cof to start with this album. My opinion is you buy maybe damnation and a day & lovecraft and witch hearts 1st. I hope you found some helpfulness in this review. Enjoy

This is a really awesome release from one of the better known black metal bands in the world. Dani's vocals aren't that horrible either throughout the album! Though there are times...but that's COF I suppose!
One thing that always blew me away about this band were the lyrics. They are way to good for any metal band. Very poetic, very dark. These guys know how to right. There aren't really choruses in their songs either, it's all mostly verse. If you like dark subject matter, with a tinge of dark humour, you'll like their lyrics.
The music is really driving. Loud guitars and drums and bass, inter-mingled with the keyboard (though not as much as on Midian). The keyboards and orchestrations provide the correct mood all the time.
Some stand out tracks (aka: my favourites!): Heaven Torn Asunder, A Gothic Romance (Red Roses for the Devil's Whore), Malice Through the Looking Glass, and the title track. Though the whole album is truly excelent. If you can get past Dani's banshee screaching that he can succumb to at times, you will be left with a black metal treasure.

Not only is this album the best Cradle of Filth album to date, it is the record that introduced me to Black Metal. I remember how amazed I was when I heard these songs, the music was fast, brutal and very melodic. Dani's voice ripped my soul and I was immediately hooked to these evil sounds. I didn't know that it was possible to create such music.
This, their third release, is a masterpiece that few of their other works can be compared to. I love this album. One can never get tired of listening to it. A masterpiece in its genre. No wander that Cradle of Filth became the most talked about black metal band ever.
This album starts off with an instrumental (just like most of their other albums). This sets the mood. It creates a dark atmosphere and gets you ready to weep as the beautiful sounds of the next song begin to fill your heart. Indeed, "Heaven Torn Assunder" is a really powerful song that is filled with melody and yet the anger and resentment of the talented musicians can be felt. Together with "Funeral In Carpathia" they are the best songs on this record. This last statement of mine, however, does not do the rest of the songs justice. They are all incredible. "Red Roses For The Devil's Whore", is really amazing. It is a song with many moods. It contains very fast and brutal parts that up to this point in the album we were not made to listen.
I remember seeing the video for "Malice Through The Looking Glass". In fact it was the first single from this band, if I'm not mistaken. An amazing song. Here you feel the sadness of the tune as the meloncholy melodies carry you to a world I had never got in touch with. Then again the guitarist will rip through that relax state of mind with a mighty riff. What an outstanding piece of work.
The title track, "Dusk...

This is the best Cradle of Filth album up to date. It just rulz from start to finish. This was the album that brought Cradle of Filth to the over the top performess that it has today. The album Dusk and Her Embrace is a magifacint black metal album creation. Alot of Cradle of Filth hits came from this album. on the record it has. Dani rocking on vocals and he totally kicks ... and rocks on the album. Then you have Stuart and Gain on guitars that is amazing on the record and that are still amazing to this day. Then you have Robin on bass, I thing that he is the best bassist that Cradle of Filth has ever had. After him you got Damien on Keyboard that brings all the harmony to the tracks. And last and sure is hell not least Nicholas on the drums and he kicks ... still to this day with Dimmu Borgir and Old Mans Child, he was the best drummer Cradle of Filth has ever had. The best tracks on the record are Funeral in Carpathia, A Gothic Romance, Malice Through The Looking Glass, Dusk and Her Embrace, Beauty Slept in Sodom, and Haunted Shores. This album is a must have for any Cradle of Filth fans or just 100% pur Black Metal fan. This was the album that set the tone on what Cradle of Filth was and forever will be. Just the best Black Metal band that is out there right now Cradle Of Filth. Thanx for reading!
