P>Disc One is live material. After the intro with its haunting gothic choir and symphonic number, Dani Filth and company launch into one of four songs from Midian, "Lord Abortion." Dani has fun with the Nottingham audience, whom he first addresses as "you horrible lot," and they seem to be enjoying their horrible selves. Some of his caustic remarks are worth noting. He comments on the tacky backdrop and thought he was playing at a Tahitan monastery. That bad, huh? "Cthulhu Dawn"'s lends itself to more ferocity live, especially Adrian's thunderous drums. Ditto for "Cruelty Brought Thee Orchids," one of my personal favourite COF gems. Dani's bass and spoken monster voice is put into great effect here. After a long droning guitar solo that stretches out "Her Ghost In The Fog," the band effectively segues into "Summer Dying Fast." The "Satanic Mantra" is included in the "Interlude-Creatures That Kissed In Cold Mirrors" track here. The song distribution from album...
First off, I would like to clarify something that Cradle fans and "Cradle haters" have been debating about for some time now. Cradle of Filth is not , and I repeat NOT, a black metal band. Even Cradle themselves have said in previous interviews that they do not feel that they play black metal. Although they do have certain elements in their music that resemble black metal, the music itself is a mixture of many styles. What is amusing to me really, is that most people who continue to criticize Cradle of Filth do so only because they have become wildly popular. This is sad because Cradle are an exciting band who, in my honest opinion, are extremely talented and deserve to be recognized as such With that said, Let us examine the offering that is "Live Bait For the Dead". This is Cradle's first live disc, and as always, they have outdone themselves yet again with some rather exceptional cd packaging. The first disc is, as most people know already, a full live...
Live Bait for the Dead is one of Cradle of Filth's best releases. It's a killer package, with a live set from the awesome Heavy Left Handid and Candid DVD and a second disc of remixes. Two criticisms- they should've used a different show than the video and I don't care for the two techno remixes. Still, the live songs form a pretty good mix of "best ofs," and I like the rawer sound compared to the studio versions, or just as much as the studio versions. Dani's commentary is amusing. Diosc two contains remixes of old favorites like Borb In a Burial Gown, Funeral In Carpthia and Scirched Earth Erotica that are every bit as good as or better than the originals. Scorched Earth is my favorite Cradle song and I prefer the remix. The changes are subtle, but it gives it that extra punch. This is an excellent package for longtime fans compared to rehashed Lovecraft and Witch Hearts which I was never ina hurry to get and still haven't got. This disc is stuff never before released on...
