Cradle of Filth — Presents for the Poison-Hearted

FT + New York London Paris MunichPost a comment • 535 views

Death metal never used to be this exhilarating. An epic soundtrack of damnation, greed and desire, it starts of sounding like a bootleg of Morbid Angel and Vanessa Carlton’s ‘A Thousand Miles’. The kick comes from the orchestration and evil choir, always fading in and out of the song, the best bit being where only the organ, chanting and incomprehensible whispers remain. The band makes an intense racket, the tick tick bass and crunching guitars, with alternating screeched/whispered vocals. It’s a Jean Delville painting bought to life, completely over the top and opulent.
