Cradle of Filth

Cradle of Filth played at the Metro on the weekend. When I got to the venue there was a line all the way up the street as Cradle of Filth haven't played in Sydney in years. You could tell fans are excited for the show that night.


The lights went off and Cradle of Filth entered the stage one by one, then Lindsay came on stage, she waved at the audience and the whole crowd cheers, then Danny came on stage and the crowd cheered even loud that! You could tell you were going to be in for a good night.

Cradle jumped into playing music right away starting off of with the song "Gilded Cunt" and followed with "Beneath the Howling Stars" and "Blackest Magick in Practice". The audiance loved this as they were tapping their feet along and trying to sing along to every word.


Danny Thanked the crowd for coming to and the crowd clapped and cheered. They then played more of their Hits including "Heartbreak and Seance", "Bathory Aria: Benighted Like Usher / A Murder of Ravens in Fugue / Eyes That Witnessed Madness" and "Dusk and Her Embrace" while the crowd was head banging along to every song.

Later in the night, Danny introduced all the band members which were Dani Filth on vocals, Martin Škaroupka on drums, Daniel Firth on bass, Lindsay Schoolcraft on keyboards and female vocals, Richard Shaw on guitar and Marek "Ashok" Šmerda on guitar.


The musicianship between all the band members was amazing and you could tell they were in sync with each other and just want to play. Cradle Of Filth proceeded to play more hits for the crowd which were "Dusk and Her Embrace"," The Death of Love "and "You Will Know the Lion by His Claw".


The lights went off and Cradle of filth walked off stage and the crowd cheered for more and you knew they were coming back as the crowd had left so meny unsung hits. Sure enough, Cradle Of Filth walked back on stage and played more of the songs the crowd love and know The Promise of Fever, Nymphetamine, Her Ghost in the Fog, Born in a Burial Gown and an amazing song to end an amazing night "From the Cradle to Enslave".
