I've seen CoF twice, have all the albums and DVDs, plus the terrible movie they made.

They put on a great show, and if you read the lyrics, have a prodigious vocabulary. Very creative.

Lot of people don't like them, due to the fact they are more "commercial" & "gone soft" than most black/death metal bands and hence think they aren't very good. When in reality, COF really isn't that commercial and few of their songs are soft to say the least.

I like them and Dani F. is very creative, not a big fan of them live though.

Really like the 80's Temptation remake......

Thornography was crap.

I like Dusk in her embrace or Midian.

Those are their better cd's.

Nymphetamine is a good song but as others said, there are better ones. If you like them then check out Children of Bodom, They are pretty cool too.

I own a few albums but I've never been able to get used to Dani's voice...theres just something about it.
Musically I love it.

That being said as far as the more popular "black/death" metal bands, Dimmu Borgir walks all over them imho.

I can listen to them, not a huge fan though. They are loosely coined a Black Metal band, I guess I can see that. Not a great band, not bad either. I like thier newer materal. Im more of a DoomMetal type of guy. If I want real Black Metal, I stick with the originators such as Immortal, Emperor, 1349, Burzum, and Enslaved.

Yeah, yeah, I know, it looks cheesy.

If you really wanna see something bad, check out a video. This makes a Candlemass video look like an oscar worthy performance.

Immortal

This is cool though. Varg Vikernies from Mayhem. Song he made while in jail for blowing his bandmembers brains out with a 12ga.

Burzum

What is wrong with Immortal?

Btw all those bands SBC mentioned are amazing.

You can't forget Dark Throne and Gorgoroth in the black metal category. Oh and Dark Funeral!!!

Burzum


Varg is not serving time for the suicide of Per Ohlin, he is doing time for the stabbing murder of Mayhem's Euronymous. Euronymous broke a label contract with him early on in Burzum's recordings. Despite his political views, Varg is quite an interesting man.

As far as CoF goes, The Dusk and Her Embrace and Cruelty and the Beast are by far the most interesting for me. While changing their style dramatically since 94', Dimmu Borgir still blows Cradle away live and on any album. For more esoteric bm, look into Leviathan/Lurker of Chalice, Absu, and Ruins of Beverast.
