Artist: Cradle of Filth
Release Date: October 28, 2008
Musically Godspeed On The Devil’s Thunder is right in line with what Cradle Of Filth has been doing on their recent albums. It’s symphonic black metal with a lot of gothic elements. It’s a dramatic CD with a narrator and many interludes and orchestral flourishes.
The songs are melodic and symphonic, but also are a bit heavier than Cradle Of Filth’s last few releases. Dani Filth is a really diverse vocalist, transitioning from growls to screams to yells to melodic singing. Longtime backing vocalist Sarah Jezebel Deva also lends her skills to a couple of songs.
