209 Cradle of Filth Cradle of Filth Cradle of Filth are a British extreme metal band that formed in Suffolk in 1991. The band's musical style evolved from black metal to a cleaner and more "produced" amalgam of gothic metal, symphonic black metal and other extreme metal styles.

One of the best Black Metal bands and easily the top symphonic/gothic Black Metal band. The first 4-5 albums were masterpieces! The lyrics and sound were incredible. Once they made it to the mainstream and realized they could make more money by making easier, slower, and more shallow music, they did. I can't blame them. $$$ but Nymphetamine and Thornography were pretty bad and not very black. The last 2 albums were somewhere in the middle

I don't believe they are so down in the list... Maybe it's because they aren't black metal, but gothic

The first 4-5 albums were basically a gothic black metal. They were great then but the last 5 albums have been more commercial.

Greatest metal band in the uk

They're an amazing band, but they seem more Doom Metal or Heavy Metal than Black Metal. I mean, they do have properties of Black Metal, but they aren't though - SirSkeletorThe3rd

They look black metal as &%@! but they are nowhere near it musically - ryanrimmel
