HONEY & SULPHUR: NEW CRADLE OF FILTH SINGLE TITLE SUMS UP FAN FEELINGS ABOUT NEW ALBUM
David Bee Roth’s not-so-stellar review of Cradle of Filth’s new album Godspeed on the Devil’s Thunder — which comes out tomorrow on Roadrunner Records — sure pissed a lot of you off. Seems that Dani Filth’s claim in our interview with him over the summer was dead on; you either love the band or you hate ’em. Same goes for old Cradle vs. new Cradle; as is the case with pretty much any band that’s been around for as long as CoF have, there seems to be a deep divide amongst the band’s fans over which of the band’s eras is the best.
Regardless of what you think of Cradle of Filth or their new album (personally I haven’t listened to it yet), there’s no denying that this band has carved out a legacy for themselves that will live on well past the band’s expiration date, due in no small part to their controversial subject matter and striking imagery. Their new video for “Honey & Sulphur” is no different (at least with regards to the latter — I didn’t listen to the lyrics), playing out like a short film. If I were a CoF fan I’m sure I’d have a giant boner for this video, and even though I’m not I still think it’s pretty cool-looking.
