Imagine what Cradle of Filth would have sounded like if they kept innovating past Cruelty and the Beast, Bitter Suites, and Midian. Imagine what CoF would have sounded like if they kept that classic gothic-melodic-sinister sound with brutal vocals. That is what Chthonic is today. Trust me, that is a compliment! But Chthonic would not settle for copying CoF. Instead, they have created their own unique sound that echoes their Taiwanese pride. What a great album – melodic, innovative, and brutal all at the same time. Keep ‘em coming Freddy!
