1996 album by Britain's premier black metal act. A fullcolor picture CD, it contains explicit pornographic/horrific cover art & photos inside the booklet. 40 minuteslong, the album is intended as a ritual comprised of sixparts (tracks to us humans), including 'Ebony Dressed ForSunset', 'The Forest Whispers My Name' and 'Queen Of Winter,Throned'. The full title is 'Vempire Or Dark Fairytales InPhallustein'. A Cacophonous Records release.

There are two CD's like this that are extremely similar. There's this CD which is "Vempire" and then there is the other one, "Vempire or Dark Faerytales in Phallustine". Get the latter. It has an extra track "Ebony Dressed for Sunset" which is a much better beginning track than "Forest Whispers my Name". Not to mention they lead into eachother so I can't understand why they would remove it from this album. Just so you know, the CD with the extra track on it is very hard to find, I had to import mine from a seller on Ebay. Now onto the review... I am writing this after their latest release, "Damnation and a Day" - which I love. However I still find myself going back to this CD. There's just something about it that I never get tired of. And it's because of this that I felt compelled to write a review. I think every COF fan should buy this CD. It's very hard, in most places it's very fast. It's not like the Cradle of...
This album was released before Dusk And Her Embrace and shows COF progressing musically and technically from their debut Principles Of Evil Made Flesh. Still fast and heavy, more epic melody and great, epic, ten minute plus track Queen Of Winter Throned and re-recorded version of The Forest Whispers My Name, alone make this an essential COF purchase for fans old and new. Six tracks, never boring, lots of replay value.
I'm not going to write out some long, drawn out review. What I will tell you is that this feels more like a raw Dusk. Stuart's great guitar playing, Nick's unmatched drumming and of course Dani's fantastic vocals. Get it
