Cradle Of Filth
Cradle of Filth are an English extreme metal band, formed in Suffolk, England in 1991. The band's musical style evolved originally from black metal to a cleaner and more "produced" amalgam of gothic metal, symphonic metal and other metal genres. Their lyrical themes and imagery are heavily influenced by Gothic literature, poetry, mythology and horror films. They have sometimes been perceived as Satanic, but their use of Satanic imagery has arguably always been more for shock value than any seriously-held beliefs.
