Well my older brother listened to them, and I hadn't gotten that deep into metal to be able to listen to death metal... I loved Slipknot, Rammstein, and Disturbed and shit like that (also softer Rock, and shit like the Beastie Boys, you know... not metal) so I was just like what the fuck is this shit??? But I love it now, I've listened to most their albums with my bro, and seen Cradle of Fear (before I was into them)...
Thornography got me in to Cradle i remember i was trippin we smoked like an ounce of weed at my buddies place he put it on i was like this is a fucking wicked band what they called ever since that day i liked em
I heard the song 'Dusk and her embrace' on a metal hammer sampler and absolutely loved it first time and on many repeated listens as I tried to figure out the lyrics! I borrowed the album from a friend and it sounded so evil. I loved it (my parents didn't). I was a teenage rebel at the time, finding my own identity and escaping a stiffling christian background. I'm now a grown-up rebel and have bought every COF album & DVD.
Well hey there pretty stranger girl! My first Cradle album was cruelty and the beast. This was the time era I discovered the best band. I discovered Cradle on line on dial up with a 16 mb ram computer!I love all of cradles albums. bye my new goddess!
I first heard The Principle of Evil Made Flesh in 1996 at a frend's house. I didn't like it at first. In fact, I thought it was funny. Then I borrowed it off him again and it grew on me. But it wasn't until Dusk and Her Embrace that I really got into Cradle Of Filth.
