|Your "tr00 kvlt" black-metal purists hate Cradle Of Filth, for much the same reason they hate Dimmu Borgir: because neither band makes unlistenable, lo-fi noise in the vein of the inexplicably worshipped Darkthrone. Instead, Cradle Of Filth makes a black-metal Halloween haunted-house soundtrack, combining the traditional screeched vocals with eerie choirs and creepy narration, and infusing the music with bombastic, orchestral elements. It's great music for this time of year, and COF do it very well. They inject the typical satanism with more of a literate, highly erotic, gothic blasphemy rich with imagery, kinda like ype O Negative without the ironic self-deprecating humor. On the minus side, the grandiose orchestration tends to bury the guitars and cushioon the heaviness. And Dani's vocals are unnatural and frequently ridiculous, screaming so high and raspy that he often sounds like every word has the same vowel sound, making much of the lyrics sound like meaningless babble.
