Let me say that Cradle Of Filth do not make BAD albums. Some are good and some are great, but their last release, “Thornography”, left a bad taste in a lot of fans’ mouths. As with a lot of great bands, they all experience an album that sounds like they’re just going through the motions, and “Thornography” sounded like that. But with “Godspeed”, COF doesn’t leave it in cruise control, they keep the foot on the gas throughout. I hadn’t heard brutally fast tracks like this since “Midian”. It seems Dani Filth is in his element when he focuses on one subject matter like my favorite COF release, “Cruelty and the Beast” or the underrated “Damnation and a Day”. “Godspeed” is a solid chapter in the Book of Cradle.
