Like a Good Friend…

Cradle of Filth is there.

Turn the clock back to the late 90′s early 2000′s and remember how things “used to be”. The economy was booming, your house had its value, and you’d just boxed up all but one of those Bon Jovi tapes you’d sworn off. You peer out your front window to a view that appears as if it would have been at home in the opening of Blue Velvet. In this picturesque reality, you ask yourself, “Self, what could make the world better?”

After a long and calculated pause, self replies in the only way it can…..with Midian

If you’re not familiar with Cradle of Filth, you’ve got a little catching up to do, and dare I say some excellent music in your future. Don’t cheat and go watching a bunch of Youtube videos as they may only bring you down since they all seem to paint a bleak picture. Fire up Pandora and listen to their tracks or launch the Youtube play list in the background and listen in as you go about boring office work. It’ll keep the rift raft away while surely opening your mind up to symphonic metal grooves that just may have you thinking, “Hmm, that non existent bad guy deity might be pretty cool after all”.

So, When everyone else is rocking the latest pop hits at the stoplight this summer, advance your CD changer from that New Jersey album to something a little less trendy and a little more thought provoking like Dusk… and Her Embrace and remember the good times.

    One great big festering neon distraction,
    I’ve a suggestion to keep you all occupied.

    Mom’s gonna fix it all soon.
    Mom’s comin’ round to put it back the way it ought to be.

    Learn to swim.

    Fuck L Ron Hubbard and
    Fuck all his clones.
    Fuck all those gun-toting
    Hip gangster wannabes.

    Fuck retro anything.

    Fuck your short memory.

    With hidden agendas.

    Cuz I’m praying for rain
    And I’m praying for tidal waves
    I wanna see the ground give way.
    I wanna watch it all go down.
    Mom please flush it all away.
    I wanna watch it go right in and down.
    I wanna watch it go right in.
    Watch you flush it all away.

    Time to bring it down again.
    Don’t just call me pessimist.
    Try and read between the lines.

    I can’t imagine why you wouldn’t
    Welcome any change, my friend.

    I wanna see it all come down.
    suck it down.
    flush it down.
