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

Nymphetamine Fix Nymphetamine Fix Cover Art

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.

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

The lyrics are probably their best, not to mention the music, and the voices are amazing on this song. Their best of all time in my humble opinion

Hallowed Be Thy Name Hallowed Be Thy Name Cover Art

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...

Although maiden created this song but c o f has made real justice upon hallowed be thy name, all its rhythm and tunes are fabulous

Dusk and Her Embrace Dusk and Her Embrace Cover Art

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.

A Gothic Romance A Gothic Romance Cover Art

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

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 break

This is more than a song

Funeral in Carpathia Funeral in Carpathia Cover Art

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

Queen 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.

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 finish

Just amazing, epic last 2 minutes

From the Cradle to Enslave From the Cradle to Enslave Cover Art

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!

Lilith Immaculate Lilith Immaculate Cover Art

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!

Heavy riffs, beautiful melodies, some of Marthus' best drumming, and sexy as hell.

The Death of Love The Death of Love Cover Art

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 lyrics

The Contenders

The Forest Whispers My Name The Forest Whispers My Name Cover Art

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

Opening riff is the best!

It's still unmatched.

Bathory Aria Bathory Aria Cover Art

11 minutes of pure blood curling anthem

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...

Forgive Me Father (I Have Sinned) Forgive Me Father (I Have Sinned) Cover Art

Why isn't people liking this?

I'm afraid to tell u that beneath the howling stars is nowhere near their best song and neither is 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..

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.

Summer Dying Fast

"Appear, draped in terror

To the comfort of your kin

Stain the milky sunset red, and let the others in"

I get goose bumps every time

A masterpiece, a perfect way to end the amazing principle of evil made flesh album

The Abhorrent The Abhorrent Cover Art


1 of my favourite songs period.

Temptation Temptation Cover Art

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.

Cruelty Brought Thee Orchids Cruelty Brought Thee Orchids Cover Art

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!

Heaven Torn Asunder

The beginning of this song is awesome! The high scream is just epic!

Foetus of a New Day Kicking Foetus of a New Day Kicking Cover Art

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/

Easily 1 of the worst cradle songs ever period.

Absinthe with Faust Absinthe with Faust Cover Art

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
