Title - ‘Damnation and A Day’ (Epic)
Artist - Cradle of Filth
When dealing with Cradle of Filth, there are a few things you must realize. They are NOT black metal, not in that Norwegian burning-the-churches-down and playing-to-the-form type of black metal. But, perhaps, just wants to be a form of black metal? They are not dangerous. They are not evil. They are not dark. The fact that they tote themselves to be from time to time is unfortunate. However if you can get past the hype and anti-hype buzzing around this band (and there is no reason why you can't), this album is pretty damn good. The one word to describe it would be epic. They try for all the songs to have this grand sweeping melodic feel to it one way or another. And it excels at it, with the most likely unintentional side effect of being more listenable than most extreme metal. It has a good balance - some fast some slow, some catchy some crunchy! Snobby black metal purists who hate catchy music should probably look elsewhere. But for those looking for an interesting listen, you could do much worse.
