Even with an average production, this album delivered the goods. In my humble opinion, the only weak tracks here are the instrumental interludes (let's face it, the keyboard player here has to be the worst CoF has had). Instrumentally, everything else is already in place, especially drummer Nick Barker who was already very good, along with bassist Robin Graves (this is probably CoF's album where we hear him the most). The 2 Pauls (guitars) had great riffs, but average solos. Favorite tracks include : The Forest Whispers my Name, Summer Dying Fast, To Eve The Art of Witchcraft...

Cradle of Filth's first full length release; different from their fast pased material that shows throughout their other albums. You should buy this album with Bitter Suites to Succubi and V-Empire, because there are a couple of songs on here that have been remade--all versions are great though. There are also far more instrumental pieces on this here album than others...and they are damn good. 27 dollars...eh.....maybe ebay.

This is the debut album of Cradle Of Filth and is without a doubt their rawest heavyest effort. The performances here are spot on and Dani does truely sound tortured in his wails and demonic in his roars. The songwriting and lyrics are brilliant.
This album however lost a star because for me it doesnt nearly add up to Cradle's later work and i dislike the production at times, but these are minor problems and dont really detract from a awesome album.

If you are thinking about purchasing this album on the strength of all the stellar reviews posted here, consider this: All these folks shelled out $27 dollars for a (somewhat) obscure black metal album. In other words, most of these people knew what they were getting before they order the album, and it met their expectations. If you are thinking this will be another well produced, consistant COF album, it won't meet yours.
This album stands alone in the Cradle catalog as exhibiting poor production. That will no doubt appeal to the "true black metal" fans. If you are one of those, change my rating to 4 stars. In addition, Cradle's immaturity as a band stands out in this album. Many of the songs are brilliant, but executed poorly. Listen to Summer Dying Fast and The Black Goddess Rises on Bitter Suites if you want to here how amazing those songs can be. In particular, being able to afford something a little more high tech than a cassio toy keyboard helped. Nick Barker's drumming is pretty weak on this album as well. He improved immeasurably on the Vempire ep.
Don't get me wrong. The Principle of Evil Made Flesh definitely has its moments. To Eve the Art of Witchcraft actually works well with the rough production (in fact, its an amazing song). My suggestion is to steer clear of this one unless 1) you own everything else Cradle has put out, or 2) you are a black metal head who only enjoys music that sounds like it was recorded in your basement.

This was the second CoF album I heard. Back in 96 I bought
it and loved it since.

This, Cradle of Filth's first release, is Cradle of Filth's best release. I love everything about this CD. One minute through a song on this album can be full on Black Metal, but then sometimes it can be a very soft keyboard/piano playing. I have always thought Dani Filth's vocals have been at their peak during Cradle's 'black' days. But the thing is, unlike a lot of other Black Metal bands around, Cradle of Filth can still be very melodic. Dani Filth is my favourite lyric writer. Look at the lyrics for To Eve The Art of Witchcraft. The end of that song is so powerful and beautiful. You have to get this CD.

This is one of Cradle of Filth's best album and one of the most hardest albums to find out there from these guys (also Vempire)! So this album is so amazing from top to bottom every single song here is great and alot of songs heard today from Cradle came from this album. The band was there orginal band line up. Dani on vocals (still to this day he is in the band) and has an amazing vocals compared to other black metal singers out there. Paul A on guitarist and is still in the band witch he is so amazing on the record some of the stuff that he makes up are some pretty hard (...). Paul R the other guitarist in the band he and his brother Benjamin plays keyboard left the band after this record. them with Dani are the founders of the band. Robin the bassist of the group is really great he some solos here and there. He just left the band before there lastest album Damnination in a Day was complete. And Nicholas on the drums and he is just (...) amazing drummer. He is now in alot od projects he is in Dimmu Borgir, Old Man's Child, and Lock Up. Witch are all great black metal band so yo should check them out (but not as good as Cradle of Filth). This is one of the best Black Metal album that is out there today and also the best band out there today. They have just played second stage on the Ozzfest 2003 tour which they (...) rocked on. This is really an amazing album the best songs on the record they are all great but the one's that stick out are Principle Of Evil Made Flesh, Forest Wispers My Name, Black Goddess Rises, One Final Graven Kiss, In Secret Love we Drown and Summer Dying Fast. This is really worth the money, But let me tell you that this is ONE OF THE MOST HARDEST ALBUMS OUT THERE TO FIND. If you do find it buy it because it is a great great great album. This is the begining of one of the best band's in the world! Thanks For Reading!
