The Top Ten

1
Nymphetamine 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
WHAT CAN BE SO BEAUTIFUL THAN DEATH
BEST SONG EVER COMPOSED AND WRITTEN BY THEM...
A TOUCH OF LOVE WITH METALLIC COMPOSITION AND HAUNTING VIDEO
EXCELLENT COMBINATION

2Hallowed Be Thy Name
Truly Amazing cover... NO offense against Iron Maiden.. But COF gave this song
A new perspective..
Great composition by maiden... but cradle of filth gave it a great kickass death metal taste m/
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

4The Death of Love
Ultimatom riffs, Dani and womans sound are great mix.
Absoulately No. 1
Great song.. Woman and dany vocals are awesome.
Yeah..
Are you ceazy? This is at the 10th spot. The lyrics and the riffs are just magical. Dani filth has been at his very best. Undoubtedly number 1.

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!

6Dusk 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

8Foetus 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/

The Contenders

11From 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!
This has got to be some of their finest work!
The lyrics, the theme, the rhythm, everything.

Too many kitty goths voted on the others

17Queen of Winter, Throned
I had listened and loved this band for 4 years before discovering this song. When I did it gave me so much appreciation for them. How many songs can make you think, it's about to end and it could have been any better. Then all the sudden 5 more minutes of master piece. This band isn't just about music. It's like a drug you take to enter a whole new gothicly delicious world.
Just amazing, epic last 2 minutes

33Coffin Fodder
In terms of listening to this band while your working out, this song has pushed me past many limits. Maybe not there best composure, but the riffs alone in this song stand out so far above other bands abilities to make you just lose yourself in the music and just feel it.
