Last week we kicked off our new series of genre-specific columns with Prog, and this week we’re turning our attention to things a little nastier. We’ve asked Cheryl Carter to give us her insight to the past month (well, month and a bit – we’re just getting into the swing of this whole “regular schedule” thing, after all) in Black Metal…
Cradle of Filth
Cradle of Filth are an English extreme metal band, formed in Suffolk in 1991. The band's musical style evolved originally from black metal to a cleaner and more "produced" amalgam of gothic metal, symphonic metal and other metal genres. Their lyrical themes and imagery are heavily influenced by Gothic literature, poetry, mythology and horror films. They have released 12 full-length studio albums to date. Vocalist Dani Filth is the only remaining founding member. Read more on Last.fm
Cradle of Filth on Thrash Hits
February 14th, 2014
With their new album The Satanist only just released (and already getting plenty of plaudits), Behemoth came to London this week to headline a show on top of a stacked bill of bands to remind people why it’s already being touted as an early contender for one of the albums of the year. Okay, technically it was a co-headline with Cradle of Filth, but there was no argument over who was going on last. Cheryl Carter hit the Kentish Town Forum early doors to catch the whole show. Well, nearly the whole show.
6 things we learnt while watching Behemoth in London:

Following on from 2006’s rather mediocre effort Thornography, Suffolk’s premier extreme metallers are back with a different line-up to go with yet another epic, conceptual foray into dark and dramatic musical territories.
