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 Cover Art

I understand that this song isn't like many other CoF songs, but I simply can't deny the feelings it causes. The guitar, drums and Filth's vocals give it an unimaginable impact when played. And it's still somehow so gentle...
I can clearly see why it's #1

This song reminds me of the vampyric addiction I have about her. Every time I listen to this song, I feel nostalgic and sort of a deja vu creeps over me.

This is the best song of COF and I've never heard something like this with no other band. They're incredibly creative and this is so gothic I absolutely love it.

Seriously one of their best songs, just an amazing mix better her angel voice & his great voice, brings out the song perfectly.

2 Her Ghost in the Fog Her Ghost in the Fog Cover Art

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

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

I love the way Dani changes his pitch from a grudge voice to really deep and high scream. Lyrics and music is always good.

It's one of the greatest songs in the world... I just love it and Dani's voice is amazing...

3 Hallowed Be Thy Name Hallowed Be Thy Name Cover Art

This is really the only song I like by Cradle...and I don't listen to Maiden either. There is just something about it...

Amazing... Played thrice better and faster than iron maiden. It should be given highest votes than any other song...

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/

4 Dusk and Her Embrace Dusk and Her Embrace Cover Art

Very underrated song. People think this is scream but this is full of magic, excellent literature and this is 6 minutes full of madness.

Top 5 should be :
1. Dusk and her embrace
2. Bathory aria
3. A Gothic Romance
4. Death of love
5. Her ghost in the fog

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

5 A Gothic Romance A Gothic Romance Cover Art

Awesome lyrics with awesome everything! Its is so haunting and the screams are so great. But I gotta say COF need more deep throat rather than a pig scream. But then again the lyrics are beyond words, godly masterpiece

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

6 Funeral in Carpathia Funeral in Carpathia Cover Art

This song captures everything CoF is in one amazing piece.

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

This song is a masterpiece

7 Queen of Winter, Throned Queen of Winter, Throned Cover Art

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 finish

8 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!

How could u have that nymphetamine crap or maidens hollowed by the name song over this incredible masterpiece.

Best song ever. Period. The newer Cradle stuff has just become too generic, too much like pop

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

9 Lilith Immaculate Lilith Immaculate Cover Art

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

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.

Awesome song... Not meant to b on no. 10! Shld b in top 5

10 The Death of Love The Death of Love Cover Art

Are you ceazy? This is at the 10th spot. The lyrics and the riffs are just magical. Dani filth has been at his very best. Undoubtedly number 1.

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

I used to think Nymphetamine was the best COF song. But then I heard THIS masterpiece.

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

The Contenders
11 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.

12 Bathory Aria Bathory Aria Cover Art

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...

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!

Best song of COF... Your day goes bad without listening to this. Best death vocals in the recent times. I'm one of your devotee dani filth.. Best vocals ever.. (Y)

11 minutes of pure blood curling anthem

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

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

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

14 For Your Vulgar Delectation

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.

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,

15 Summer Dying Fast

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

"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

16 The Abhorrent The Abhorrent Cover Art

1 of my favourite songs period.


17 Temptation Temptation Cover Art

This song should be in the top five, it has triggered my addiction to COF. The female voice in this song is very unique.

Absolute garbage to put it nicely.

How could this crap even be listed.

The worst song of cradle of filth.

18 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.

Killer track, wish they were still like this.

Should be way higher up! Amazing song.

19 Heaven Torn Asunder

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

20 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!

Easily 1 of the worst cradle songs ever period.

Amazing music! A song that never gets old.

21 Nocturnal Supremacy
22 Huge Onyx Wings Behind Despair
