This song is making refrences to 5 songs on "The Principle of Evil Made Flesh" Here are the comparisons in which to look for while listening to "The Principle of Evil Made Flesh" to compare to "Queen of Winter, Throned."
"The Black Goddess Rises"-----Listen to the begining background music after the piano part at the begining, for the refrence. Not only that, he screams just as he does in QoWT during the begining of the similar instrumentals. The same instrumentals that resemble those that begin the "hard" parts of QoWT appear at the end of this song as well.
"Principle of Evil Made Flesh"-----Once again instrumentals, at the very begining, and somewhat throughout the song, but faintly noticeable. Plus, even the beat to this song takes on one that of QoWT at points.
"A Crecendo of Passion Bleeding"-----Begining guitar riffs/instrumentals...sound like those near the end of the song QoWT.
"The Forest Whispers my Name"-----At a point (Like 1:35 into it), the song's instrumentals sound like those in a begining part of QoWT.
"A Dream of Wolves in the Snow"-----If you can't tell by the begining lyrics, listen to the tune..it's that beautiful intro to QoWT. This one makes the most obvious of refrences, so if you don't notice it, you my fellow readers, are quite slow.
It is in my belief that those 5 songs, make up "Queen of Winter, Throned." And, the instrumentals somewhat prove this.

What away to make an EP... This is so complete it really stands alone. This contains perhaps the most varried and complete sound "Cradle of Filth" has made to date. "Cradle of Filth" brings punk, thrash and goth to black metal and has done so now for some years. Thier variation and sound were at an extremely creative point here in Vempire. You have some quick songs on here that just jam with great melody and then you have 2 very solid Epics to make this album unfailing in its power. The use of (my guess) 2 or 3 female background vocalits adds a sensuality that is missing from thier later albums and gives Vempire an Allure on its own entirely(however "Cruelty and the Beast" has nearly the same strength in other areas).
If you like Cradle of Filth this is the way to go to see what mastery they can accomplish. An experienced fan of extreme metal but a very recent fan of Cradle of Filth (myself) found it easy to put an end to my criticisms to this band especially after this little monster of an EP. Second to this would be (as previously stated by others) "Cruelty and the Beast" which is a great solid album as well. (follwed in a biased order by Dusk and Her Embrace, Damnation and a Day, Principle of Evil Made Flesh)

There are two CD's like this that are extremely similar. There's this CD which is "Vempire" and then there is the other one, "Vempire or Dark Faerytales in Phallustine". Get the latter. It has an extra track "Ebony Dressed for Sunset" which is a much better beginning track than "Forest Whispers my Name". Not to mention they lead into eachother so I can't understand why they would remove it from this album. Just so you know, the CD with the extra track on it is very hard to find, I had to import mine from a seller on Ebay. Now onto the review...
I am writing this after their latest release, "Damnation and a Day" - which I love. However I still find myself going back to this CD. There's just something about it that I never get tired of. And it's because of this that I felt compelled to write a review. I think every COF fan should buy this CD. It's very hard, in most places it's very fast. It's not like the Cradle of Filth of today, but equally as good. Not to mention it has the all-time fan favorite, "Queen of Winter Throned". My favorite however is the Intro ("Ebony Dressed for Sunset") into "Forest Whispers my Name". Get this disc if you can't possibly find "Dark Faerytales in Phallustein". It's worth it.

This is definately Cradle of Filth's most "evil" sounding record. While it's only an EP and contains just 6 tracks, this album is truly epic and 'supreme', by all means. I think the vocals on this album are the best, just above Cruelty and the Beast. Dani abandons the rhaspy style heard on the previous album, and replaces them with blood curdling fury... unlike on any other album.
While it doesn't have nearly as much gothic romanticism as some of their other works, it does make up for that with a pure focus on the power and evil of Vampiric lore, and really invokes the presense of "ancient evil".
The production and sound quality is also rather amazing, expecially considering the fact that this is only their second release, on their less than reliable label, Cacophonous.
Instead of being a mere collection of songs like a typical EP, this one adheres to a mini-album feel.
The opening track, Ebony Dressed For Sunset, is not like the usual C.O.F. intro song (which are all intstrumental). This one actually has guitars and vocals, and really ushers in the dark forces of the coming songs.
After this hellish peice, a new rendetion of The Forest Whispers My Name comes in... which is far superior to the original version. Much faster, theatrical, and all around "demonic". There are the ghostly moaning vocals by Sarah Jezabel Deva, which weren't at all present on the version heard on the debut. A true classic track...
The next song, Queen of Winter Throned... a 10 minute epic of monsterous porportions. We witness some of the most sinister screeches ever heard by Dani here... it's too bad he's lost this sound on the two most recent albums (Bitter Suites, Midian).
This symphonic opus quickly fades into Nocturnal Supremacy...
The first song I ever really heard by this group.
