Creadle of Filth Discography

21949729Cradle of Filth was formed in Suffolk, England in 1991. The band’s original members consisted of vocalist Dani Filth, guitarist Paul Ryan, keyboardist Ben Ryan (Paul’s brother), bassist John Richard and drummer Darren White. With this line-up, Cradle of Filth recorded a demo in 1992, entitled Invoking the Unclean. Soon after, they recorded their second demo, Orgiastic Pleasures Foul with new guitarist Robin Eagle stone (aka. Robin Graves). He left the band shortly afterwards, but following the departure of John Richard, Eagle stone returned to take his place as bassist. Guitarist Paul Allender joined the band at the same time. Following these changes, another demo was recorded, entitled Total Fucking Darkness. White left the band soon after, paving the way for the entry of drummer Nicholas Barker.

Cradle of Filth signed with Cacophonous Records in 1994, releasing their debut, The Principle of Evil Made Flesh. A series of differences between band members arose, and there were also problems between the band and the label. Their second work, the EP Vampire or Dark Fairytales in Phallustein, issued in 1996, saw further changes in the line-up. The Ryan brothers left, and Stuart Antis (guitarist) and Damien Gregory (keyboardist) joined, and Paul Allender was replaced by Jared Demeter. While writing material for a new album, the band negotiated their departure from Cacophonus Records, and in November 1996, signed with European label Music for Nations. Later that year, they released Dusk… and Her Embrace, an album that substantially expanded the group’s growing cult following.

Their next album was Cruelty and the Beast, released in 1998. Two years later the group returned with From the Cradle to Enslave, an EP that featured new drummer Adrian Erlandsson (formerly of Sweden’s At the Gates and The Haunted), as Barker had departed to join Dimmu Borgir. The band’s several lineup changes continued apace as Paul Allender rejoined the group and Martin Powell (ex-Anathema and My Dying Bride) replaced Smith on keyboards for the full-length album Midian, Cradle’s last for Music for Nations, which was appropriately released on Hallowe’en 2000. Bitter Suites to Succubi was released on the band’s own Abracadaver label in the UK and Spitfire Records in the US in 2001. The group signed to Sony for one album in 2003, adding a choir and orchestra for Damnation and a Day, and moved to Roadrunner Records (where they remain) for 2004’s Nymphetamine, followed by the seventh full-length Thornography in 2006, and Godspeed on the Devil’s Thunder in 2008.
