With THORNOGRAPHY, Cradle Of Filth conjures up enough stylistic curveballs to keep devotees of the provocative black metal outfit guessing. Producer Rob Caggiano deepens his relationship with the Filth, after skillfully helming 2004's NYMPHETAMINE. Dani Filth and company notch back the orchestral touches prevalent on CoF's recent works opting for a less sonically dense but no less heavy album. Amidst the requisite thrashy brutality, HIM vocalist Ville Valo and newcomer chanteuse Harry guest-spot, creating some of the most interesting and melodic moments.
