I listen to Cradle of Filth from time to time. Picked up their first album again a while back, and it's not as dire as people make it out to be (though still nowhere near as good as their second album, the only one which is really any good). It's become such a ridiculous trend to dislike Cradle of Filth (and DragonForce, for that matter) because their later works are crowd-pleasing, reiterative pieces of crap.
I didn't mention Cradle of Filth because they're quite obviously not "sword-raising" music, whereas DragonForce is definitely incitement to battle in sonic form.
Also, aren't Falconer a bit too slow/boring to raise your sword to?
