Simple. The BM sellout battle. Both COF and DM are identified as the ultimate Black Metal Sellouts. Which one do you prefer? And why? I personally prefer Dimmu. I don't like Danni Filth's voice.

...but they have NONE of the original spirit BM was based upon.

And I'm sure the world rejoices upon knowing that.

This is not black metal, their music is metal merchandise, These are the most profitable bands and I doubt there are any ounce of inspiration from the Black metalheads.

Being Norwegian, I guess it´s no surprise I voted for Dimmu Borgir.

Dimmu; they are far more consistent.

I don't think CoF are sellouts really. I've watched a couple interviews with Dani, he is a very intelligent person, plus he wrote some of the best lyrics in BM.
I agree the band's last albums are bad but if the dude enjoys it I'm happy for him. IMO when people want to call him a sellout, my answer is that he will be always be a legendary artist, while they never wrote music or lyrics and are nobody

Whether he is a sellout or not, this is probably the weakest possible argument in response to criticism. People don't need to be a legendary artist or have written music themselves to be able to say something negative about music.

You can't just go around saying that. You aren't a published critic so you can't state your opinion on things.

I like both equally. And there the only "modern" black metal I like.

You are right man! You can critisize him, even laugh at him. I didn't say that you shouldn't. What I am saying is that it won't erase what he achieved (earlier albums). It's a fact that he will still be the musician behind "cruelty and the beast"

For example, russel crowe will always be "the awesome guy who played gladiator"(movie). I don't really care about his other movies! it might be a stupid example

to any band who can make a living from playing metal. After all, isn't that the dream?!

I think, as I read above, we can consider them modern BM bands. I like the first four or five albums. I love Dusk and her embrace, it's a fucking haunting album of COF, and Stormblast from DM, awesome!

Exactly!

That said, Cradle of Filth are starting to really grow on me. At least up to and including "Dusk and Her Embrace." Although I think they got too musically overblown after that, I respect them for what they are. Once again, I think it's a stretch to say that CoF (or Dimmu) are sellouts or posers. Cradle were always being themselves so how are they posers? They never really claimed to be "true black metal" and they would be correct but who fucking cares? I think purists would stop being so anal about genres. The music is what matters so why argue about something as trivial as categories? If every band was trying to be "pure black metal", "pure death metal" or "pure heavy metal", then there would be no room for innovation.
