Cruelty and The Beast review.
Let's see individual tracks one by one.
Once upon Atrocity - Although just a short instrumental piece, I can sense the evilness surging up already.
Thirteen Autumns and a Widow - 4.5/5. I could feel the despair and the libertine in Eilzabeth and her relationship with her husband. Impressive lyrics belted out by the Man, Dani Filth. The atmosphere is well instilled.
Cruelty Brought thee Orchids - 1000/5. One thumping stone cold classic. You could almost smell the blood and witness the onslaught of torture meted out by the Countess. Madness at its peak. Enough said.
Beneath the Howling Stars - 5/5. All about the decadence of Elizabeth and her desparation. Rather good!
Venus in Fear - 20/5. Loads of nymphs screaming their lungs out as if in extreme pain, makes you shiver in your spine, resulting in you beginning to feel the actual harm done to the virgins by Elizabeth. Chilly instrumental piece.
Desire in Violent Overture - 5/5. About the desire of Elizabeth and the overall damage done. You could feel the triumph of evil and the felons. Nice track.
The Twisted nails of Faith - 10/5. The vainity of this abomindable wanton and her twisted thoughts. Twisted. Sick.
Bathory Aria - 50/5. 3 songs merged into one deliciously foul track. You have got to listen to experience the breathlessness after the song.
Portrait of the Dead Countess - 10/5. The Countess is dead! Loads of despair and decadence, sorrow and melcanholy.
Lustmord and Wargasm (The Lick of Carnivorous Winds) - 30/5. Recallation of the sins of Elizabeth. One impressive track!
