RockmusicRaider Review - Cradle of Filth - Nymphetamine - Album CoverHmm, never say, never. Or is it more that exceptions confirm the rule? Usually I am not a big fan of these necrotic-psychopathic eruptions of total bullshit the Black Metal scene often produces. But there are a few good bands out there: Those with some fantasy, that come without the urge to bludgeon you to death with spiked fists and electric guitars, coupled with disgracefully bad music. Cradle of Filth is one of the more promising ones. And their 2004 album Nymphetamine is one of their better productions – especially compared to their album preceding this one.

Saying this I can already see the purists’ hate neurons grinding into motion, wanting to scream at me that this is not Black Metal anymore and we should ban this band to Hades (or rather drown them in the muddy waters of the river Styx, so they won’t come back..).Got hooked? Raid this some more...
