My first two Cradle albums were 'Dusk.....And Her Embrace' and 'Cruelty and the Beast'. After those two, I picked up 'From the Cradle to Enlsave'. I recall years before this, a girl showed me the photo's in the booklet that came with her copy of 'Dusk...'.
I first heard hallowed be thy name cover by COF, i instantly liked it...So i researched and the first COF song i heard was "From the Cradle to Enslave"...And that was it!...Got my first COF album Midian.
Midian. Bought it when it first came out (I was just getting into metal at the time) after reading a review in Kerrang. Listend to it once but didnt get it and didnt like it. Went back to it about a month later and after a second listen I strangely loved it.
