Yes, because CoF covers are known for their deep symbolic meaning.


Not to mention how skillfully it was put on the picture just like miss "random chick I met on the street and gave her some "goth" dress and told her to look bored out of her mind which I needed for the artwork to look more gothic or something".

Hmmm? Where did I say that CoF has deep symbolic covers? I don't believe I did...

CoF is a cheesy, over the top band, and thats the way I like them. No one should ever take them too seriously.

But you would have to be a complete idiot to accidentally turn the lower half around....nah, its obvious it was done on purpose.

This isn't going anywhere. Lucas likes the cover, the rest of us hate it. Now what were we talking about?

Nah, I don't care for the cover either..The only part about the cover I like is the scorpion man lolz, everyone else seems to hate it.
The goth chick and demon face are pretty awful though.

Well, it's going to be nice to see some CoF artwork in the upcoming WORST ARTWORK CONTEST

I'd vote it, god, I think they made it bad on purpose

Cradle of Filth's covers have always been incredibly cheesy and badly made, and this one is no exception. So what's all this commotion?
By the way, I like the band a lot, especially the stuff that they did before 2003, but I have no problem admitting that their stage image and artworks are the epitome of kitsch and bad taste. Unlike their lyrics, which, while being often cheesy too, are very well-written and a pleasure to read.

Just some classic back and forth with people who think their artwork is tasteful.

This is not only bad but boring. Usually I can say SOMETHING about the cover reflecting the album or Cradle of Filth's current state but this is just some soul sister shooped into Hexen. I wonder what it sounds like (that was hyperbole, I really don't care).

Well, there were Egyptian, Greek and Mesopotamian Sphinges. The ones with boobs are Greek.

There you go, it's all about boobs, as always

What do you expect from a crappy band anyway


What can you argue to such a smart statement ?

I don't mind about artwork that much, CoF covers are so so, sometimes better, sometimes worse but all that matters to me is music, so I'll give the CD a try before giving my opinion.
