Cradle of Filth Midnight In The Labyrinth 2012, Compilation Review by PowerWyrm

9.3
Orchestral Non-Prog Rock
If like me you're someone that loves Cradle of Filth's music but hates the unbearable vocals they use... then this album is for you. A collection of re-recorded songs from their first albums in orchestral versions with only female vocals and male narration. No blastbeats. And no shrieks!

I just regret a few things: no "Bathory Aria" (maybe it was too long or already orchestrated enough in the original version), a pointless second disc (instrumental versions of tracks from the first disc that were already 80% instrumental), and only one new song (Goetia - clearly the worst of everything on the disc).

For sure, after listening to this record and checking the original versions, unless you're a hardcore black metal fan, you will find them quite horrible.
