Cradle of Filth is a Democratic Sex-Cult formed somewhere in Europe by man/woman Dani Filth. Their music consists of screaming like little girls, having very anti-Colbert lyrics, murdering puppies, and faking British accents in-between their songs at live preformances.
Originally formed in Europe, major influences on Cradle of Filth are Slayer, Iron Maiden. The band is a cross-breed between Black Metal and Gothic Metal.
Affects on Modern Society Edit
Much like Marilyn Manson, Cradle of Filth didn't start out big. And over time, their music has become even more anti-Colbert than it did in the beginning. The music video for "Babalon A.D." is a depiction of the lead singer chasing around and murdering college students (Only because they weren't allowed to use pre-schoolers).
Some of the things this band has been recognized for are:
- Being really weird
- Using giant puppets during concerts
- Lead Singer Dani Filth was featured on television show "Viva la Bam", which is hosted by a cult member
- Getting in Drunken brawls
- Constantly hating America
