3.0 out of 5 stars For Hardcore COF Fans Only March 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Begining of Cradle of Filth Jan. 11 2004
By Jorge
Format:Audio 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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Vampyric... July 16 2003
By Regina
Format:Audio CD
Well, I'll start off by saying that I'm not decided as to whether I should give this album 4.5 stars instead of 4. Ah well.
This album. Great guitar, and though most people find Dani's screeching redundant (well, it kinda is) and annoying, I enjoy it for the most part. When comparing his voice in this album to the voice you hear in their later releases, you can definitely tell how much he has developed his voice since this albums debut in 1994...and the rare demos from 1993.
The female vocals in this CD are well used, and no Cradle album is complete without at least -some-.
Some parts of the album I find I just can't take all that seriously. Though the "lyrics" in track #13 are good, I find the entire track alone to be unnecessary.
Cradle obviously wants their listener to think of vampirism---and associate them with vampirism, as they quote Bram Stocker's Dracula and use the organ...a lot. Though it doesn't sound bad--it just might seem silly to a few of you out there.
Some people say that this album is Cradle's best, but I think it's -just- as good as a couple of their later-yet-still-early albums.
All in all, this is definitely a beautiful album with a lot of feeling, and it's a must for any Cradle of Filth fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Origin of CoF Aug. 9 2003
Format:Audio CD
With this album, Cradle of Filth began their quest to spread their evil vampyric metal to all ends of the earth. This is Cradle at their rawest, and this album is a milestone in the history of "black" metal. All things said, this album has the beginnings of the signature Cradle sound with razor-sharp guitar licks, haunting female backing vocals, and gothic flourishes. Yes, this album may be a bit hard to find but is certainly worth the cash for any CoF fan, as well as anyone looking to have a great collection of black metal. Yes, the production quality and sound on this album is not exactly top notch, but what did you expect for a first release on a limited budget? That being said, this album is worth cranking up loud!!! Truly an overlooked gem, and definitely should not be missed for any CoF fan or black metal fan.

this is their best album in my eyes. Vempire and Dusk are also good. Crulety is a bit to long and boring at times but the guitar work is killer on that album. Read more
