"Cradle of Filth is an extreme metal band from Suffolk, England. Formed in
1991, they have been embraced and disowned with equal fervour by various
metal communities, and their particular subgenre has provoked a great deal of

The band's sound evolved from black metal to a cleaner and more "produced"
amalgam of gothic metal, symphonic black metal and other extreme metal
styles, while their lyrical themes and imagery are heavily influenced by
gothic literature, poetry, mythology and horror films. The band have
successfully broken free of their original niche by courting mainstream
publicity (often to the chagrin of its early fanbase), and this increased
accessibility has brought coverage by the likes of Kerrang! and MTV, frequent
main stage appearances at major festivals such as Ozzfest, Download and even
the mainstream Sziget Festival, and in turn a more "commercial" image. They
have sometimes been perceived as Satanic by casual observers, although their
outright lyrical references to Satanism are few and far between, and use of
satanic imagery has arguably always had more to do with the shock value than
any seriously-held beliefs. According to Metal Hammer magazine, they are the
most successful British metal band since Iron Maiden."
