The remix of Cradle’s magnum opus of contacts and vampirism is soon upon us, so let’s get into the mood with a discussion of it’s bloody contents. What’s your favorite bite and why?

Beneath the Howling Stars is one of the best tracks the band has written. The constant tempo changes, Maiden-esque riffs, and that fucking keyboard break from 2:25-4:53 make it a real showstopper.

Agreed


Has anyone heard any updates on the 20th Anniversary reissue of this?

Very difficult for me to pick a favorite from this masterpiece. Arguably Cradle’s best album. It’s a shame Stuart got sacked after this as he was the best songwriter they ever had.

Went with The Twisted Nails of Faith. That ending is insanely epic.

It wasn't actually until late '99 or early 2000 when he left. But yeah, broke the Anstis-Barker-Eaglestone combo and next thing you know the band's doing nymphetamines and thornographies.

I was always very drawn to Cruelty Brought Thee Orchids, but the album is packed to the brim with such classy material. Really love the aching sense of melody paired with thrash riffs.

Desire in violent overture.
Love the dueling maideneque riffs.
The bass breakdown in the middle.
The Kool keyboard interlude after the bass breakdown
And the awesome chorus.

Back in the day when I was a young mushroomleg this was the only track I could stand on the album. How ears change overtime.

Very much agreed. The riffs and overall atmosphere of this band seemed to take a nosedive after his departure.

My vote went to "Cruelty Brought Thee Orchids", mainly because that song is always the first that comes to mind when thinking of this album. Theres really not a bad song on it though.

I could spin this album all the days when I was a teenager...haven't listened to it since so many years...

Maybe I should buy a vinyl reissue for pure nostalgic moments.
My favourite CoF album with Dusk and Her Embrace. Awesome songwritting from start to finish, perfect gothic atmosphere, very good lyrics...

I vote for "Cruelty Brought thee Orchids" as my favourite song from the album and maybe from their discography as far as I'm concern even though their debut was filled with so many classic riffs !

How the hell has it been 20 years since this came out? I remember liking it a lot back then, but I don't think I've heard it since 2000 at the latest. May need to revisit it.

Revisiting now. Is this their last good album all the way through? I have never heard anything after. If I wanna listen to COF, it's usually Demos-Dusk.
