Cradle of Filth

Unless you are a huge fan of the genre of black metal, there’s a good chance that T-shirts for your favorite band don’t feature photos of nuns being crucified and that said band doesn’t work under the self-imposed banner of “Supreme Vampyric Evil.” Thankfully, we have Cradle of Filth hoisting its freak flag high. The English sextet has been cranking out its blend of ornate gothic rock and blast-beat screaming for the past ten years, recalling the pregrunge days of metal and putting on a show that features fire breathers, stilt walkers and the cat-skinning shrieks and screams of singer Dani Filth. It’s a dark carnival more than a stadium rock show.
