What makes Cradle so special is how they blend so many different styles together to create something truly unique. Also, the lyrical themes are probably the most interesting I've ever come across. Dani is a brilliant writer.
COF's unique musical style like no other band: not 100% black metal, not 100% death metal, not 100% gothic metal, and their attitude, their image, their own culture and mythology.
Dani's lyrics are very original and unique.As for the music Cradle maybe are not the best in Metal,but they create an atmosphere that no other band can do.Ofcourse they are very much into horror & macabre stuff.To be honest when i heard them for the first time through "Cruelty and the beast" i was shocked.I never heard before such horror sound and i have listened that album for months repeatly.
