Product Description

6 Track Ep. Limited Digi Pack.

Il y a maintenant bien longtemps que les intégristes du black metal se sont détournés de Cradle Of Filth, qu'ils accusent d'avoir trahi la "cause" pour garnir son compte en banque, et ce n'est pas ce mini-CD qui les ramènera à la raison. En effet, si Cradle Of Filth fut le premier groupe à faire voler en éclats les barrières qui séparaient le black metal du metal "normal" en offrant de superbes morceaux magistralement composés, plus accessibles au commun des mortels que le bruit nihiliste caractérisant le black le plus extrême, la voix outrageusement criarde de Dani continuait cependant à en rebuter plus d'un. Or, on note sur "From The Cradle To Enslave" et "Of Dark Blood And F**king", deux excellents inédits, une très nette amélioration en la matière, ce qui devrait ouvrir de nouvelles portes à Cradle Of Filth. En revanche, les quatre autres titres (une reprise anecdotique, quoique réussie, du "Sleepless" d'Anathema et une amusante, quoique peu fidèle, du "Death Comes Ripping" des Misfits, ainsi qu'un remix techno putassier de "From The Cradle To Enslave" et une deuxième version relativement superflue de "Funeral In Carpathia" qui figurait initialement sur Dusk And Her Embrace) sont d'un intérêt moindre. Le groupe est capable de mieux, ce qui est l'apanage des meilleurs. --Hervé SK Guégano --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cradle in-between July 21 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Cradle of Filth had some band-member changes prior to this release, and this is certainly noticeable. The newcomers definately keep the same standards of musicianship, albeit taking Cradle of Filth in new directions. The first two tracks, the title-track and "Of Darkness and F**king" are superb! Unique songs with a unique sound. Extraordinary arrangements and powerful crescendos fuelled by all-out thrash. In fact, I consider these songs superior to most of their previous work. It feels as if CoF has found their own sound and are extremely comfortable with it. Great! The EP should have ended there, in my opinion, because the rest of the songs are mediocre at best. What is supposed to be covers of Misfits, Anathema, and themselves with CoF-flavor (or should I say flavour), end up being mediocre at best. I could say that Dani's voice just dont do these songs justice, but I might as well say that these songs dont do Dani's voice justice. Nevertheless, his style of singing and the songs covered do not belong together. I would have loved to hear Dani actually SING on at least one of the covers, or is he incapable? Is it an issue of image; that it isn't "evil" or "black metal" enough if he should use different modes of singing depending upon the atmosphere of the music? In any case, Dani's mode of singing is outstanding and fits perfectly into the atmosphere of Cradle of Filth music as it has sounded and sounds on the first two songs of this EP. The point of the remixes is to me completely lost. What's with the techno? and the "Funeral in Carpathia"-remake is definately inferior to the original. Is it just me, or does Dani's voice actually crack a few times singing it! It should never have been released. Summing up, buy this EP for the two first songs and discard the rest. I am sure that the new album coming soon will set up new, wonderful standards as to what one should expect from the music of the CoF-genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Darn filthy, but not their best Dec 6 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This six track ep from Cradle of Filth is pretty good although not as atmospheric as some of their work on 'Cruelty and the beast'. The cover versions of other bands songs are good but I would prefer it if they covered Iron Maiden or Judas Preist. The dance mix 'Perverts church' is good for what it is, but what it is is a dance mix and I don't really like dance music.
This e.p. is certainly worth having and a wise purchase for Cradle of Filth fans but for a newcomer for this band I would reccomend 'Cruelty and the Beast instead'.
This e.p. is very good but a little dissappointind compared with 'Cruelty...' and 'Vempire'
WARNING: Some audiences may find the lyrics and artwork used by this band offensive, but they're probably not into metal.

5.0 out of 5 stars It takes a little understanding. Dec 17 1999
By Ian Smith - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This CD is only for the COF fans of a loyal following. To understand this EP you would have to understand COF. If you are one to collect their music no matter what kind of direction they choose to try, then this is a good one to have. If not and this will be your first time listening to them, definitely listen to their previous albums. This is a great way to make the anticipation of their next album even more. Also, purchase their new video "PanDaeMonAeom" (something like that) it will really get you inside of COF. COF will always be on top.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not there old stuff, but it's different in a good way April 15 2000
By Heaven_Burner - Published on
Format: Audio CD
If you are a fan of straight foward black and death metal, then you won't like this. If you like and appreciate talent though, you will like this. It is totally different from their other worrks with a slightly more commercial appeal to it. As if COF could ever be commercial. But it's all good, and it still rocks.
