CRADLE OF FILTH "Midian" /CD/



Re-release of the fourth full-length album by the legendary British Symphonic Gothic Black Metal band.
England's most notorious Metal band has returned with Chapter V - "Midian". Album was released on Halloween, 31 October. This album greatly differs to that of other Black Metal albums. It holds some unique characteristics and brings a new concept. It does not talk about vampires, but a place where demons, fallen angels, and monsters dwell, an idea whose origins come from the Old Testament. At the time it was considered their most commercial and accessible album to date.
The album marks the return of Paul Allender to the band, as well as the introduction of Adrian Erlandsson (At The Gates, The Haunted, Paradise Lost) and Martin Powell (My Dying Bride) and a shift towards a Thrash/Death Metal guitar sound, while still retaining that totally unique Cradle Of Filth’s individuality. It’s a good display on the heaviness achieved in the record. The lead riffs and high pitched vocals are more apparent than ever, but the band seems to mold them into a heavier sound seamlessly. "Her Ghost in the Fog" spawned a music video, which received heavy rotation on MTV2 and other rock channels, and was directed by Alex Chandon (who also directed the 2001 horror film “Cradle of Fear” in which Dani Filth appeared).
The band pulled itself together after what must have been the worst time for Cradle Of Filth ever; the new line-up rocks and "Midian" is an impressive addition to the saga! Dark, heavy and aggressive album!!
