    Murai, funny you feel that way, I'd put Sepultura, Slayer, and Cradle of Filth in the same category of bands that were once good during their early years and are now complete shit. Cradle has ONE good album, which is dusk. Everything else is fucking horrible and dani needs to die. 10 rules of the 101 rules of black metal - don't be dani filth :p.

    Dimmu is somewhat going in the direction of Cradle, but hopefully will not reach the level of gayness that resides. Many bands have used keyboards over the years and have retained their greatness, Emperor(RIP) and Enslaved coming to mind.

    Sepultura and Slayer's newer stuff.. Some of it I like but it's not as good as their early work when they were in there prime. But I dont think this means they deserved to be shitted on which many metallers do. You think it's easy to make classic metal albums every time? Very few bands can do that. And these 2 bands arent that image driven and shitty as Cradle Of Filth.

    Yeah I do believe that Dani is only driven by money, he saw a market for impressionable youths and went for it, they are signed to Sony records for fucks sake, I know that sounds Elitest but big corporation = big money, his t-shirt manufacturing company alone must make a bomb.

    Driven by money and image.

    They´re a talented band with good sense for "occult melodies", and the lyrics are great indeed. No one should argue that! I happen to think that Dani´s vocals make them quite unique, and fuck... That man can deathgrowl and scream/sing in four octaves... But hey, people always fear what they do not know!

    Dusk... And Her Embrace is my favorite too, but also Cruelty And The Beast & Midian rules... Haven´t got into the newest yet...

    They're good.. But then again I dont really have anything to compare with in that genre.. In that style of music the only thing I own is Cradle Of Filth stuff.. But I am planning on expanding my collection to more stuff that sounds like them.. So any recommendations are welcome. :)

    The new song's called Mannequin. Figured that out. :)

    It would totally suck ass if it weren't for that female vocal hook.

    You're right, it does sound elitist.

    I don't buy your "impressionable youth market" theory either. If Dani was in it solely to make money, then why isn't Cradle of Filrh composing pop songs. That would be the easiest way to make the most money. And if he was in it for just the money, wouldn't you think he'd take the quickest path to the biggest profit?

    I can't stand COF, I am much too tr00 for that. They are on Sony, therefore they only care about money. I will stick with my troll black metal.

    Cradle of Filth ARE making pop music. I used to love that band until i realized how shitty they really were/are. The new album reminds me way too much of System of a Down(which isnt a good thing).

    Cradle of Filth = All star line up catastrophe

    i love them and their new album just happens to some of their best ever work. i dont like their image whatsoever but their music still remains good original metal and thats what is most important.

    I agree, look how popular "Metal" has become.

    Not real metal mind you, but as far as Nu metal goes, then yes CoF are pop music, but then again, I think of most Nu-Metal bands as pop, Linkin Park, Evanesence, SOAD etc.

    I see all these as pop.
