CRADLE OF FILTH live on this day in 1992. Recordings of the gig were included on the split tape with MALEDICTION.
We were just looking for an essence of evil or nastiness. We obviously added a bit of that lovelorn, romantic darkness, vampirism sort of purported. But yeah, bands like Repulsion, Master and a lot of the early Nuclear Blast stuff like Pungent Stench, Disharmonic Orchestra, General Surgery, Necrophagia and Autopsy, a massive influence as well, glad to see they are back with a new album. Like I said, it was very important. We cherry picked as a band to create the Cradle sound. We are a bit of a Frankenstein or chimera to begin with.Dani Filth / Cradle of Filth interview, Metal Underground, 2014
