Best Cradle of Filth Songstejusmessibmw5 Arguably one of the best death metal bands of Europe. No one can match their sinister compositions.
The Top Ten
This should definitely be number one. This song is the very definition of 'Haunting'
The best song ever... not so fast not so slow...
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.V 35 Comments
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
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/
Great Song from maiden but COF made it to a damn killer
a revival, but definitely they kicked it with their own style...V 31 Comments
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
Perfect riffs and lyricsV 9 Comments
This song perfectly bridges CoF's earlier gothic splendour and later experimental stage.
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!
It's a crime that this isn't 1 period.
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.V 9 Comments
Heavy riffs, beautiful melodies, some of Marthus' best drumming, and sexy as hell.
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!V 2 Comments
Well by far a lot better than the other song in the top 5. COF became so weird... But this is an excellent song by far the best of COF
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
This song is pure poetry
Very underrated song. People think this is scream but this is full of magic, excellent literature and this is 6 minutes full of madness.V 4 Comments
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.
Best cradle of filth song!V 5 Comments
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
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 is the only cool song in here. Whoever made this list really likes Thornography and hates Damnation and a Day. Any Cruelty and the Beast song beats everything in here. And by the way, Cruelty Brought the Orchids should be added here...V 3 Comments
I think there are better cof songs than this but this should be at least at top 10
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 - nooreldeen
Amazing song! A true symphonic black metal masterpiece! This music and lyrics have such beauty to them.
This song is the the perfect blend of beauty and heart breakV 6 Comments
Excellently Constructed song, this album is way to underrated for some reason.
One of the most emotive CoF songs
nice songV 1 Comment
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.V 5 Comments
It's a Top 10 song. People must have forgotten how good it is.
Opening riff is the best!
It's still unmatched.
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
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.
Simply epic, the very peak of cradle of filth's creative genius.
Danis screams are mindblowing.
Awesomely fast and cool guitar cover
I'm afraid to tell u that beneath the howling stars is nowhere near their best song and neither is this.
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..
Instrumentation on the first verse is just perfect. this track is a gem
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.
1 of my favourite songs period.
After the success of their debut album, COF gets attention from various companies. Music For Nations offered the band contract. The only problem was their second album deal with Cacophonous Records. And I believe that COF first finished the composing songs for Dusk and Her Embrace and then used other riffs for V Empire or Dark Faerytales in Phallustein. The ironic part; a kind of song COF only wanted to complete their second album would be their best song. A masterpiece...
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.
Truly a masterpiece! I'm appalled at how far from the top this is. This one blows most of the top ten out of the water with ease.
Simply epic from start to finishV 1 Comment
From the creepy intro by a girl to the last beat of the song... Mannequin gives you the taste of blood laced pentagram!
Amazing guitar riff that will stick with you, Adrian's syncopated drums are as fast and brutal as ever, the lyrics are great and Dani gives one of his best performances on the record. Not to mention the amazing video directed by Thomas Mignone. Classic!
Great song I don't get why this album isn't spoken about more it's cradle at their best in my opinion
Brutal composition this song is one of their best!
Best lyrics and almost best musically
Incredible masterpiece, pisses on nymphamine
Dani becomes a 10000 watt human sound box, can make dead stand up in attention, "Nothing is above Dani, save aureole light".
Can't believe this song is listed here it must be at least at the top 10, This song has a Insane truama!
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.
Absolute garbage to put it nicely.
How could this crap even be listed.
The worst song of cradle of filth.
This song should be in the top five, it has triggered my addiction to COF. The female voice in this song is very unique.V 1 Comment
Creeping intro! This song is, with Tearing the Veil from grace and Her ghost in the Fog, the best of cradle of filth compositions! Nymphetamine? Nothing compared to them
This song doesn't get enough love. The middle of the composition is unrivaled in its intensity. "I slay the lamb in..." That part.
Extremely amazing start. Both the Black Metal and the remastered version always give me chills.
I can't believe this is so low on the list. Lol this album came out before I was even born, but I like it most. This track is awesome, raw and aggressive. It also contains good Dani Filth vocals (not his controversial new technique). I love this track and the entire album - metalfan1999
In terms of melody and mood this is their #1
5 minutes of filthy cradleness
The song is a complete joke and I mean that literally.
This is the Best ever song from this band "Cradle of Filth" I just love this song, it should be the number one.
This should be one of the top ten.
This is a very good. It should be in top 10V 2 Comments
The instruments and Vocals are amazing!... Video is so damn haunting.
Love this song
The instruments and Vocals are amazing!... Video is so damn haunting.
Love this song
Epic haunting verses, and then brutally beautiful fast parts. Guitars are great, drums are on point, and the vocal... Just wow... One of their best for sure!
I'm getting a tat with a verse from this song across my heart.
This is very nice song... This must be moved up...
This so blows away most of the songs higher on this list. Makes me wonder if some of the voters have only heard their newer material, or maybe I'm just old.
Awesome instrumentals combined with Dani's vocals. Yup teh fire is still burnin' - tejusmessibmw5
Come on now, someone listen to the original of this song and tell me this isn't creative. Structure, intensity & dynamics are amazing!
Cradle should be ashamed of this song, especially to be put on such a great album.
I think this should be more higher on the list.
Should be number 1, but its not even listed. Pure black madness.
Great Song deserves a higher place on the list
Their best song. The start is pure metal genius you think it's going to be heavy then the vocals ramp it up another level. If the last couple of minutes don't make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, there is something wrong with you.
Such a great song!
A really epic song often looked over. Could probably compete with Her Ghost in the Fog
