YMMV / Cradle of Filth

  • Broken Base: Ohhhh where to begin... if the band jumped the shark after a certain album, or if it was when a key member left, or which era was better, so on...
  • Face of the Band: Dani Filth.
  • Fandom Rivalry: With Carach Angren, a symphonic black metal from the Netherlands. The rivalry came out when Dani Filth released a new make up style that looked exactly like Carach Angren vocalist/guitarist Seregor. Fans and even Seregor himself were not amused.
  • It's Popular, Now It Sucks: The reaction of many black metal fans to their popularity.
  • Nightmare Retardant: The band tries hard to look scary. Unfortunately, Dani is short, round-faced and has a posh middle-class accent, so it doesn't really work.
    • Particularly in his newer work in which he wears glittery face paint, making him look like, according to one Youtube commenter, the Goblin King.
  • Signature Song: "Cruelty Brought Thee Orchids" or "Her Ghost in the Fog".
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: And since they introduce a change to their sound with just about every new release, this happens a lot.
