Best Cradle of Filth Songs

Arguably one of the best death metal bands of Europe. No one can match their sinister compositions.

The Top TenXW

1Nymphetamine Fix
This should definitely be number one. This song is the very definition of 'Haunting'
because this song is the most beautiful gothic metal ballad ever made
This is the WORST song of the band I love. It is their most soft, slow, clean and most radio friendly of all the songs they have ever made. It is no surprise to me that all the young "fan" voted this #1. Truely sad that a great band has such am unintelligent and ignorant fanbase. Very funny that the song that sounds least like Cradle is at the top. Wow! Oh well they made some money for making more simplistic music.
[Newest]I'll agree. This is a great choice. Great beat & Liv Kristine from Leaves' Eyes KILLS the female vocals.

Truly Amazing cover... NO offense against Iron Maiden.. But COF gave this song
A new perspective..

a revival, but definitely they kicked it with their own style...

3Her Ghost In the Fog
his voice is just creepy, which is a good thing :p
it also has so many different melodies in it
The song is awesome... One of my favorites... The guitar and the vocal is just exceptional... It should be the best cradle of filth song... Its one of the best gothic metal songs in the world... I love it
Unbelievably, Fantasticly Immense in every way known to mankind
I especially love the part with the woman's voice at the same tie as Dani's
[Newest]Possibly the best and darkest song in the world.

[Newest]Very good lyrics, nice howling

5From the Cradle to Enslave
This is great song... I never expected to see this song below! It is the first music video by Cradle of Filth in 1999 and it rocks... also I lake to say there is another kick-ass song called THE DEATH OF LOVE and it should be #1 but what? Its not on the list!
Best song ever. Period. The newer Cradle stuff has just become too generic, too much like pop
Awesome song, but don't hate on their new stuff. I mean, it's still Cradle of Filth, right?
This has got to be some of their finest work!

6Lilith Immaculate
The screams in this song are really haunting, can't believe it's only at number 9
This is the song that brought me into COF, my first gothic metal song. And the greatest!
Lilith Kingdom Will COME SOON
7Dusk and Her Embrace
This song was playing whilst I was being born (literally I'm 14) and think I will forever be a cradle of filth fan for the rest of my life thanks to this, one of the most amazing songs ever
Very underrated song. People think this is scream but this is full of magic, excellent literature and this is 6 minutes full of madness.
A masterpiece of kind its kind

8Bathory Aria
11 minutes of pure blood curling anthem


"Snuffed tapers sighed
As Death left impressing
His crest of cold tears on the Countess"

The best song ever
Every time I listen to this song, full I am like what 10 minutes I over! Then I listen to it over again and again and I can't get enough of it. very well combined song, both sentiment and metal. cradle of filth is the real deal. Black metal = Cradle of filth!

[Newest]Should be way higher up! Amazing song.

The Contenders

11Foetus of a New Day Kicking
This song should be number one, not the ever-so-mainstream Nymphetamine Fix! Always my favourite.
It is very amazing song really :) and actually dani filth sings normally at this song without growling I mean
And also where are songs like Gothic Romance, Dusk and Her Embrace, Malice Through The Looking Glass but anyway Nymphetamine is the best m/


Reminded me of maiden.. Amazing riffs.. And danny actually sings in this song... Killer!
12A Gothic Romance
Very awesome song it should be in top 5! I didn, t thought that it would be in 19.. It is an insult to cardle of filth


Amazing song! A true symphonic black metal masterpiece! This music and lyrics have such beauty to them.
Awesome lyrics with awesome everything! Its is so haunting and the screams are so great. But I gotta say COF need more deep throat rather than a pig scream. But then again the lyrics are beyond words, godly masterpiece
