Best Cradle of Filth Songs

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

The Top Ten

1 Nymphetamine Fix 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

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.

It is a great track but nyphetamine overdose is better

2 Her Ghost in the Fog Her 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

My Favorite Song From Cradle Of Filth
He's Voice Is Creepy
The Chorus Is Amazing
I Love This Song

3 Hallowed Be Thy Name Hallowed 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...

The best Alineation of COF, Dani, Gian, Stuart, Nick, Robin, Lecter

4 The Death of Love The Death of Love

Best song I ever heard. Still haven't listen to all their songs so don't take my word for it

Ultimatom riffs, Dani and womans sound are great mix.
Absoulately No. 1

Perfect riffs and lyrics

Very good lyrics, nice howling

5 From the Cradle to Enslave From 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?

The lyrics, the theme, the rhythm, everything.

Too many kitty goths voted on the others

The screams in this song are really haunting, can't believe it's only at number 9

7 Dusk and Her Embrace Dusk 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.

This is the song and album which made the band popular

A masterpiece of kind its kind

11 minutes of pure blood curling anthem - tejusmessibmw5

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!

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

The best song ever

This and dobberman pharaoh has the most amazing lyrics in my opinion

This song should be number one, not the ever-so-mainstream Nymphetamine Fix! Always my favourite.

Reminded me of maiden.. Amazing riffs.. And danny actually sings in this song... Killer!

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/ - nooreldeen

Amazing music! A song that never gets old.
