Cradle of Filth – Cryptoriana (The Seductiveness of Decay) (, , )
6th October 2017 -

In my personal opinion Cradle of Filth are one of the most underrated and underappreciated bands in metal today.

Paradise Lost – Medusa (, , )
25th September 2017 -

Apart from a few patchy moments in the 90s, they have rarely put a foot wrong, and they are currently on a winning streak of 3 back to back stellar albums, with 2012’s Tragic Idol, 2015’s The Plague Within… Read More »
