Limited Edition Japanese pressing of this album comes housed in a miniature LP sleeve. 2007.
It would be easy to bridle at Midian's relentless bombast and obsession with all things Goth. Many would detest a purposefully pretentious mix of Carl Orff and Obituary that occasionally collapses into early '80s-style prog-metal. And then there's J.K. Potter's laughable artwork, wherein band members look like characters in Clive Barker's miserable Night Breed, the source of the album's name. But there's also a lot here to appreciate. Frontman Dani Filth is becoming ever more convincing in his attempts to offend; some turns of phrase in his blood-spattered romances even manage to recall Keats and Byron. Musically, they seldom fail to entertain and sometimes reach the operatic heights of Laibach and Lacrimosa. More reading and refinement by this lot may produce the first Goth masterpiece since the Sisters of Mercy's First and Last and Always. --Dominic Wills

This album definately has more than one face to it: Emotionally charged ballads such as 'Her Ghost In The Fog' and 'Saffron's Curse' to more heavier tracks such as 'Lord Abortion' and 'Cthulu Dawn' mixed in with soft instrumentals such as 'Creatures That Kissed In Cold Mirrors' and 'At The Gates of Midian'.
This album is definately worth the money, Like I said, Very listenable, even when youre in a different mood. Happy, Sad, Angry...
This is my favorite Cradle of Filth album. The music almost provides a mental landscape, if you really listen to it.
I recommend this album for those just getting into Cradle of Filth.
Anyway, On with the review
01. 'At The Gates of Midian'
A nice track... Nothing special about it, doesn't do the rest of the album justice.
02. 'Cthulu Dawn'
One of the heaviest on the album, I think this most suits the "black metal" genre. This track should give you an idea of whats to come with the rest of the album.
03. 'Saffron's Curse'
Well, Well, Well... One of my favorites on the album. A beautiful, dark, emotionally-charged ballad what seems to be about a man's spouse who has died(My description may sound similar to that of Her Ghost In The Fog, but trust me both of the songs have huge differences)This song really lays down the Orchestrated sense of the album.

I find that their combination of hard guitars with softer instruments makes great-sounding music. When I listen to some of the tracks at work, I find myself more productive/typing faster, too.
1. at the gates of midian- a very soothing song (10/10)
2. cthulu dawn- this song is very heavy, an excellent song(10/10)
3. saffron's curse- my favorite song on the cd, an very good black metal song (10/10)
4. death magik for adepts- i love the ending of this song (9/10)
5. lord abortion- this song is....erm.....odd, it's still a very good song nonetheless (10/10)
6. amor e morte- alot of people like this song, its good but doesn't exactly stand out to me (9/10)
7. creatures that kissed in cold mirrors- a good orchestral song (9/10)
8. her ghost in the fog- the first song that i heard from these guys, absolutely flawless (10/10)
9. satanic mantra- ......what's the point of this (the only bad song on the cd) (2/10)
10. tearing the veil from grace- this is definately one of the best songs on the cd (if it weren't for saffron's curse, this would be my favorite song on the cd) (10/10)
11. tortured soul asylum- yet another excellent song, these guys never cease to amaze me (10/10)
in conclusion, you should definately go out and buy this, believe me, you wont be dissapointed :-) blessed be and merry part!

This CD is by far the best one Dani Filth has put out. It has better sound, song writing, lyrics, artwork, etc... than all the other CD's he released. Read morePublished on June 30 2004 by Bryan Torino
