Day 12: Crate Digging / A Good Deal
Cradle of Filth - The Principle of Evil Made Flesh
I don’t so much go “crate digging” as such and I’ve never really used the term, but I will always flick through a used record section just in case. One time I was in London doing just that and found a copy of this. It is in terrible condition, and it skips like there’s no tomorrow, but for £5, I’m not complaining. Say what you want about Cradle of Filth, but if it wasn’t for them I probably would have never found my love for black metal. I know they got a bit hokey as the years went on, but their debut is a great blend of the rawness that purists seem to love and the beginnings of gothic metal grandeur. It doesn’t have the majesty of something like Cruelty and The Beast, but it does get overlooked when people have discussions about underrated black metal gems.
