Cradle of Filth: Astoria, London
Caroline Sullivan, The Guardian, 18 December 2000
AND A SATANIC Merry Christmas from Cradle of Filth, nice Ipswich boys whose idea of a great night is quaffing freshly-drawn virgin's blood to rev themselves up for even more horrible things later. Lock up your daughters and pets — because the Filth don't shrink from wearing "I Love Satan" T-shirts at the Vatican (they got arrested) or from telling Tara Palmer-Tomkinson, at the Kerrang! magazine awards, that her column is rubbish.
