Présentation de l'éditeur

The Gospel of Filth is the boldest, most comprehensive and authoritative guide to the realms of darkness and devilry ever published. No tombstone remains unturned in this wide-ranging and witty dissection of the uncanny and unholy. Music forms The Gospel's entry point, but every medium, from movies and literature, to comics and computer games is considered. Dani Filth rides shotgun with author Gavin Baddeley throughout the book, providing insight and impish irreverence at every turn. Emerging from the violent cauldron of chaos that propelled black metal to the forefront of the extreme music scene in the early-90s, Cradle of Filth have since transcended such subcultural boundaries, embracing the likes of Decadent art and Gothic literature to create an inimitable, sensuously sinister style all of their own. THE GOSPEL OF FILTH - WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT? The big question answered in 10 easy chapter summaries. ch1 Esoteric England The birthplace of both Gothic literature and heavy metal, historically England has provided the world with the lion's share of dark culture. In this chapter we explore the links between the English and evil. ch2 The Femme Fatale The association of femininity and wickedness in our culture stretch back to the genesis of the Bible and beyond. Some Satanic artists have chosen to invert and celebrate this, particularly the Parisian Decadents of the 1800s, and this chapter explores both their scandalous lives and their work. ch3 Childhood Nightmares Childhood has become one of the most incendiary topics in the world today, the idea that it might have a dark side all but taboo. But, as this chapter shows, the infant realms of fairytale have their roots in ancient pagan lore, while modern horror owes much to the fairytale. ch4 The Gothic Aesthetic From proto-goths like Lord Byron, this chapter takes us via the infamous Batcave club in 1980s Soho, to state-of-the-art interpreters of the aesthetic like Cradle of Filth. ch5 Criminal Chic Crime has been with us as long as law, and a fascination with the forbidden has often manifest as a guilty admiration for the criminal. This chapter looks at this in its most extreme forms, from the primordial cult of Cain, to 21st Century serial killer chic . ch6 Horror Horror as entertainment is age old, in Beowulf or the Bible for example, but only in the 20th Century was it afforded a genre all of its own. This chapter looks at a century of horror as art from the perspectives of its greatest creators, whose monsters have often taken on lives of their own. ch7 Satanism Inasmuch as we are a Judeo-Christian culture, Satanism is the definitive counterculture, but one little understood and routinely misrepresented. This chapter explains the authentic development of Satanism, both as a covert philosophy and a pop culture phenomenon, and exposes its sometimes violent impact on modern art and society. ch8 Sex and Drugs Sex and drugs are among the modern world's chief preoccupations, though they have been with us throughout time. This chapter traces that development, focusing in particular on how they joined rock'n'roll in forming the unholy trinity of modern Decadence. ch9 Arockalypse Now Heavy metal has been our culture's most unloved medium since its inception some years ago, but in recent years it's enjoyed a renaissance of critical redemption. This chapter analyses the development, and its effect, particularly on Cradle of Filth, plus the relationship between such bands and our world today. ch10 The Black Arts The question most often asked, and least often satisfactorily answered in the realms of darkness regards black magic, specifically does it work? The chapter illustrates the theory and aims of the dark arts, culminating in an illustration of the black arts in action.

HASH(0x9547d654) étoiles sur 5 "The Gospel Of Filth" - an encyclopedia of all things filthy... 1 avril 2010
Par Hudson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book is beyond awesome if you are a fan of Cradle Of Filth. For fans, this is a must-have. Also, I think people who don't like the band but are interested in "goth" or "black metal" culture or the occult will like this book as well. The book references every influence behind Cradle Of Filth's albums, whether it is literature, film, or music. All topics are discussed fairly and in depth. The book is HUGE, with over 500 pages loaded with pictures and artwork. "The Gospel Of Filth" is written mainly by Gavin Baddeley, with some elements written by Dani Filth. Dani's contributions are available in side-boxes of text on about every other page. The book is about a foot tall, so the pictures look really good. Satanism is covered thoroughly, from the basic tenants to black magic theories and rites. Basically, "The Gospel Of Filth" will appeal to anyone interested in the Occult, heavy metal, and/or gothic lifestyles and rhetoric. Highly recommended. 5 Stars... Filthy...

HASH(0x9547d6a8) étoiles sur 5 So much more than just a Cradle biography 8 mars 2010
Par T. Bunch - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Rating: 9/10

An absolute MUST OWN book for anyone interested in the occult, and even more so if you are Cradle of Filth fan. This book journeys through the history of the band while exploring the world of the occult and how it shaped the band. The chapters are the CD titles and within the chapter, we explore the darkness that influenced each. The book also explores the "black metal" and metal scenes at the time and delves into the influences of those other bands, both on Cradle and the metal genre itself. On top of that, this tome even explores the world of horror movies, books, TV shows, plays and more.

This book is crammed with tons and tons of pictures; every page has pictures, photos, drawings, etc. You won't get bored reading hundreds of pages of "stories from the bands past". That's not the format of this book, this book is a visual experience.

Unlike any other band biography, this book takes you into the dark underworld and shows you the bloody sinews that bound it to the music that Cradle was writing and recording. As you read the book, you will see the band grow and the world of the occult become more and more influential on the world.

There are the obligatory mentionings of Anton LaVey, Aleister Crowley, H.P. Lovecraft, Elizabeth Bathory, vampires, etc. There is more, though, much more. The book also mentions influences such as British poet Lord Byron and an exploration that early classical composers, rebelling against the tyranny of the church, wrote "devil music" to capture the cacophony of sound they wanted to express.

At over 500 pages, this book is well worth the read. Again, if you love Cradle of Filth, then this book will tell you more about who the band really is than any other source. If you don't really care for Cradle, but are into black metal, the occult, etc., then this book is still worth reading so you can experience the growth of the occult influence on pop culture.

HASH(0x9547dae0) étoiles sur 5 A Must-Have for any Metal/Horror/Occult fan! 3 octobre 2010
Par Nemesis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
If you want a book that has it all with a ton of color pictures on EVERY page, flavored history of darkness and the occult, and just mesmerizing writing, then look no further. The Gospel of Filth is without a doubt the most interesting book on anything gothic/dark/scary/occult/artistic/musical out there. I've yet to see any book richer than this one in terms of occult history, the development of black metal (and many other different forms of metal), darkness, and decadence all in the same book. There are a plethora of pictures that have remained unpublished until this book surfaced, and there's literally eye candy on every single page. Order this now! You won't be disappointed! Even for those who think they know it all on the above mentioned topics, you'll learn a lot more than you bargained for.......And that's what makes a stellar book!

HASH(0x9547dac8) étoiles sur 5 This May Actually Be a History Book in Disguise! *GASP!* 5 juin 2010
Par Feelah the tigress - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I've been waiting 5+ years for this book to finally be released! So, is it any good?
Why yes, it is. For the sheer size of this book, you're getting a fantastic value (at around $30). I was duly impressed by the size and full color pictures adorning every page of this fine tome. To give you an idea of a size reference, it's actually about the size of a textbook (and much much cheaper). Given the fact that this book is likely to see a very limited audience (i.e. those who are either Gavin Baddeley fans or Cradle of Filth fans), they easily could've cheaped out on the quality (you know, crappy black and white photos, poor editing, etc.). But no! I'm quite happy to say that the Gospel of Filth feels like a really well-made item.

For those of you wondering exactly what is in GoF, let me explain. First off, it's not really a biography of the band. Sorry guys, if that's what you were looking for, this really isn't it. I mean, it has references to things the band did in the past, but that's not really a focus. It's actually pretty difficult to pinpoint exactly what this book is about since it's so jam-packed with such a profuse amount of random information, but if I had to put my finger on it I'd say it's most closely a history/sociology book. Yes, really. The whole thing is divided into chapters, with each chapter having the title of a Cradle of Filth album. Basically, each chapter delves into the historical and cultural influences behind the themes and inspiration for each album and sometimes even specific songs. For example, chapter 6 is about Midian, which is an album largely about monsters and horror, so chapter 6 is basically a history of the seminal moments of horror as a literary and film genre. Sprinkled throughout all the chapters are numerous references to various musicians and their influence on Cradle of Filth's own music (as well as interviews). Chapter 9 (the Thornography chapter) most heavily delves into this topic--covering the beginnings and evolution of the metal genre. This whole book is deeply fascinating and the quality of the writing itself is excellent. Oh, as a side note, if you were wondering (like I was) exactly what extent of the writing is actually Dani's, I can tell you that almost every page of the book has a little black box in the margin that contains some insightful (or hilarious) piece of wisdom from Mr. Filth himself. As to how much he helped Gavin Baddeley with the main bulk of the text, I really don't know.

Overall, my only complaint with GoF is that perhaps the scope of their topics are too broad; the text can come off as rambling and awfully random at times, jumping from the metal scene to Crowley to Byron to Gothic Romanticism to Satanism and back again. There were just times I wished that the text would stick to one subject for longer than a paragraph (and they do in many portions, it just sometimes feels chaotic). Aside from that, it occasionally felt repetitive--I believe that some of the information was repeated from chapter to chapter to help those reading the chapter out of order or as a reminder. Well anyway, those complaints are really rather minor, GoF is actually quite a joy to read (unless you did it like I did, with the book perched on your chest--it starts to feel like you're being tortured under the weight of a medieval pressing device after a couple of hours).

So, do I recommend you get this book? Well, YES! ...That is, if you have an interest in occult history, Cradle of Filth, or Gavin Baddeley's work. Anyway, for its current price it's a phenomenal value, so if you're on the fence about buying it, just go ahead - don't pass this one up.

HASH(0x9547df90) étoiles sur 5 It's a Gospel for anything Horror!!!!!!!!! 10 décembre 2012
Par ScarecrowA7X - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I jumped through hoops to get this book before it was available in the states. I have the UK version and some of the words are strange spelling wise.

I was Introduced to Cradle of Filth in 2003 when they were on the Ozz Fest tour in Philthadelphia (no pun intended). Never heard of them and Chevelle was playing on the main stage and they SUCKED. So I went to the second stage, where I literally bumped into Zakk Wylde (Very nice dude). Cradle was playing on the stage and their look of Vampires singing intrigued me. I asked some around me who it was and they were too stoned to tell me.

They were incredible, I loved the creaming and the melodic melonies combined. I went home and found out who they were and I have never looked back. Gospel of Filth is just what it says it is. Everything Horror and Maccabre. I was very happy when I had the whole band sign it in 2011 on their Darkly tour and I am patiently awaiting their North American tour dates!!!
