Upcoming tours: Cradle of Filth

Cradle of Filth - Promo Picture

Less valuable to us than yesterday’s Voivod announcement is this upcoming Cradle of Filth tour. This legendary traditional heavy metal masquerading as black metal act will be headlining the “Inquisitional Torture” tour, supported by Ne Obliviscaris and Butcher Babies. This tour is presumably intended to promote the band’s latest album (Hammer of the Witches), which came out in July and was undoubtedly of little interest to our previous editor. These concerts are probably not worth your time, unless you really like throwing rotting vegetables at stages.

The tour dates follow:

Jan. 26 Philadelphia, PA @ Theater of the Living Arts
Jan. 27 Boston, MA @ House of Blues
Jan. 28 Baltimore, MD @ Baltimore Soundstage
Jan. 29 Raleigh, NC @ The Ritz

    Someone talked me into seeing cradle of filth once. We walked out in the middle of their first song.

    1. Meek Metalhead says:

      Did you get a refund?

      walked out on cradle? then you’re a fukin hiprokit and a puzzy…
      at leest they been honest in going full juggalo rather than the hordes ‘oldschoolers ‘ secretly pursuing rockstardom etc you know it’s true

      1. at leest they been honest in going full juggalo rather than the hordes ‘oldschoolers ‘ secretly pursuing rockstardom

        That’s true. Nothing is sadder than a tryhard, who are basically Deafheaven fans in disguise who need to get kicked in the balls before they can go all metro on you.

        1. morbideathscream says:

          I agree with you that the hipster fags posing as metalheads or anything else they are not is extremely sad.

          In my response to jinko I was of course defending actual metalheads not feminine metrosexuals wearing emo glasses and are probably sjw’s. He used the term oldschoolers which is pretty fucking broad. A hipster claiming to be old school is not gonna be taken seriously by anyone relevant.

      2. morbideathscream says:

        You need to learn how to spell.

        I walked out on cradle because they’re a bunch of homosexuals playing really atrocious music and any decent black, death or heavy metal influences they may have initially had they sure bastardized to the fullest extent. They play plastic mallcore garbage for little goth kiddies.

        I have no secret desire to become a rockstar nor does any self respecting metalhead or band. Sure there’s idiots in the metal community who want to be rockstars, but does not injure my statement on cradle. Yeah there’s bands like watain who seek rockstardom and it’s not much of a secret. Another band that’s plastic. Metalheads do not seek acceptance by the moronic masses and any prominent musician in the underground knows there’s no real money to be made by playing that type of music. Your accusation of metalheads or bands seeking rockstar status is retarded. Yet you give cradle credit for dressing like a bunch of assclowns.

        I’m hoping your post was pure sarcasm.

    I haven’t heard Cradle of Filth so I can’t say whether I agree or not. But I did chuckle.

    1. Gabe Kagan says:

      My (limited) understanding of Cradle of Filth is that they’ve always leaned towards the basic side of rock and metal tropes. In their early days (pre-2000 or so), they may have been more musically ambitious. Maybe someone more knowledgable on the subject will chime in?

      1. Malfeitor says:

        First album is overrated as hell.
        Dusk and Her Embrace, Cruelty and the Beast and Midian are ambitious goth-metal with blastbeats. They are quite basic and have some touching, mascara-dripping moments.
        Damnation and a Day was too long. The rest is unbelievably awful till Godspeed’s on the Devil’s Thunder. Then they are just boring but maybe it was I that grew up.
        Fun music for Wiccan teenage girls.

      2. militant says:

        no. theyve always sucked. lurk more.

        1. theyve always sucked.

          I agree, but their death metal styled / Paradise Lost worship demos sucked less.

      3. My (limited) understanding of Cradle of Filth is that they’ve always leaned towards the basic side of rock and metal tropes.

        Yes, even during their death metal-ish days. They were immediately an obvious infiltrator in black metal, but the fans and their girlfriends liked them.

      4. OliveFox says:

        I have yet to meet a true metal soldier get laid pretending to like Cradle of Filth, so that should tell you something.

        1. vOddy says:

          So what? A true metal soldier doesn’t lie about music to get laid

          1. OliveFox says:

            Good point, I mainly just buy DEAFHEAVEN tank tops for 12 year old girls before I rape them in the mall parking lot.

        2. Abominable Goatpenis says:


  3. OliveFox says:

    At least I know one thing I will NOT be doing on Jan. 28th.

  4. Phil says:

    Their first few albums are pretty good, everything takes a steep dive after Midian. Sentimental and flamboyant heavy metal. Longer, more poetic songs. Looked down upon by snobs for reasons such as mainstream teen goth-girl appeal and ripping aesthetics from “truer” genres. They made a brilliant cover of Shakespeare’s Sister’s “Stay” of late.
