I've just finished this book and its a brilliant look into the world of metal, the occult, Satanism, vampirism, Lycanthropy(werewolves), horror, femme fatales and more. Using the titles of Cradle of Filths albums as chapter titles and the themes of their music and lyrics as a catalyst, this delves into the dark world of decadence and features interviews with metal musicians, artists, writers, directors, journalists and more and is a fascinating insight into a much feared and talked about world. Gavin Baddeley has clearly spent ages researching for this ambitious project and got Cradle frontman Dani Filth to contribute to. But you don't have to be a big Cradle of Filth/Black Metal fan to enjoy this as its only partly a biography of one of British metals most iconic and controversial bands, this covers so much more. Also featuring brilliant artwork including Cradle of Filth exclusive artwork by Nigel Wingrove as well as iconic metal album covers and rare pictures of various bands in the scene, old pictures and paintings from the 15/1600's onwards, The Gospel of Filth is an essential read for anyone with a taste for the darker side of life.
