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

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.

Only a kitty goth that knows nothing about black metal or metal in general would vote for this song as the best of COF, there earlier albums blow this watered Down radio friendly rubbish out of this world. Just listen to Midian, damnation day, crealty and the beast, cradle to enslave, dusk and imbrace, bitter suits and u will find out how much of a sell out this and many songs after are.

2 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

This so eerie,C.O.F.Are Underrated But They Rock And And Have A Symphony Melody parts.Just Listen To Other Black Metal Are Horrendous Bunch Of Noises.Hated Because They Sound Good.C.O.F. and Emperor Are Worthy Listen To Marduk,Immortal.

3 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...

How could this be 3? Seriously

4 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

It's not like old cradle but I admit it is a beautiful song

Not REAL cradle unfortunately.

5 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!

Cradle to enslave and 'of dark blood and f#cking' which is absent from this list for some unknown reason are the 2 best songs ever made.

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?

Video is smashing! But music is a piece of art. In this song is everything!

6 Lilith Immaculate

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

Lilith Kingdom Will COME SOON

This is the song that brought me into COF, my first gothic metal song. And the greatest!

The greatest 👀u can't be serious.

7 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.

A masterpiece of kind its kind

This song and album is by far the best music ever written period bar none.

8 Cruelty Brought Thee Orchids

Such a powerful song I believe this And haunted shores should be in the top 5

Beautiful and haunting song, a masterpiece.

Should be way higher up! Amazing song.

Killer track, wish they were still like this.

9 Absinthe with Faust

This is a softer side of cof compared to other songs but it has one of the best melodies and lyrics cof has composed. It has my vote

10 Bathory Aria

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

A beautiful black metal song.

13 Foetus of a New Day Kicking

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

Easily 1 of the worst cradle songs ever period.

14 The Forest Whispers My Name

It's a Top 10 song. People must have forgotten how good it is.

Opening riff is the best!

It's still unmatched.

15 Funeral in Carpathia

This song is a masterpiece

This song captures everything CoF is in one amazing piece.

Older works COF.. But masterpiece it is! Guys try this one

16 For Your Vulgar Delectation

There not as heavy as old cradle albums but they are still heavy, I don't think old cradle fans have even given manticore a chance after the darkly darker album,

Good Riff. Good Drums. Should be way up higher even if not in top 5. Very tight song... @Moriarty

Great song,Of got all cradle cds an manticore and hammer by witches are as heavy as any of them.

17 Frost On Her Pillow

Awesomely fast and cool guitar cover

18 Saffron's Curse

Simply epic, the very peak of cradle of filth's creative genius.

Danis screams are mindblowing.

19 Forgive Me Father (I Have Sinned)

Why isn't people liking this?

Love this song allong with the black metal critics to the relligion dani filth brings the essence of black metal

Love this song and why the hell « beneath the holling stars » is not at first place? You call yourselves metalheads..

20 Cthulhu Dawn

Best song are u kidding me? Have u not heard cradle to enslave, or any of their earlier albums.

Best song off their best album.
