    Cradle of filth, possibly the best...undifined band out there.q

    upon embarking on the jurney into the nether world, I came accross "Cruelty and the Beast" I heared about this band and decided, "What the heck." I prceded to be amazed at the shere poetry of the entire album, how they mix together their lyerics and the intensity of their music blew me out of my mind. I would Highly recomend this album, and anything by Filth to one who enjoyes the quest for a Vile, Melodic, intence band, you too, will ponder, how do they to it.

    Great band, great CD.

    This CD was my firrst Cradle Of Filth CD, and it is a truly great CD. Not for people with weak nerves, rather for true metal lovers. If you are not a metal freak, the chances of you liking this cd are rather low, but if you like this style of music, you will LOVE this CD. The tracks on this CD are rather dark and gloomy, which was the reason I bought the CD. This album seems to be dedicated to Countess Bathory, a woman who was known for her beauty and cruelty. Again, if you like dark, gloomy music, you have to get this CD. P.S. I listen to this CD for quite a while, and the desire to put this CD into the player is not disappearing. And this CD deserves not 5 stars, it truly deserves a 100.
