One February 24th, 1994 Cradle of Filth with in 3 years of THE DEATH METAL AGE, which we had Deicide at the Time as the World’s Greatest Heavy Metal Band of all-time, and Before this our World’s Greatest Heavy Metal Band of all-time was Sabbat from The UK, featuring Andy Sneap, and Before this we Had from the 1980’s Mercyful Fate ranked/ rated as the Best Heavy Metal band of all-time. Mercyful Fate had two perfect albums back to back in 1983 & 1984, so did Metallica, but Metallica had a Diamond Head/ Mercyful Fate/ Satan/ Jaguar/ Anvil / Tank / Iron Maiden, influence circa 1982, 1984, 1984.

And Exodus was inspired by Satan/ Mercyful Fate also.

That is why we have always ranked / rated Mercyful Fate higher than Metallica circa 1982-1986.

 

Because their albums Melissa and Don’t Break The Oath rank Higher than the “Ride The Lightning” which has the radio song “Escape”, which I love by the way. But it made “Don’t Break The Oath” as the no-brainer for album of the year. Since Mercyful Fate ranks # 5 of all-time, for this publication, which deals with artistry and authenticity in heavier hard rock/ heavy metal/ avant-garde metal.

 

So when I was asked to Write about the current WORLD’S GREATEST HEAVY METAL band of all-time – INTERNATIONAL * Cradle of Filth. I decided why not. Since they are the ACTUAL

 

1994/2004/2014…easily going on a FOURTY YEAR RUN TO RIVAL THAT of MOTORHEAD !!!! (see previous article).

 

KICK*ASS*METAL has always been a Gothic Metal/ Symphonic Black Metal/ Avant-Garde Metal slanted publication since 1987, I have been a heavy metal fan since 1978. We support all, WORLD-CLASS HEAVY METAL, we will cover any artist no matter the part of the world they come from as long as they are BAD*ASS and KICK*ASS

 

Crest of Darkness is our WORLD’S GREATEST HEAVY METAL BAND OF ALL-TIME * NORWAY category. When the released the untouchable and so far unsurpassable album Crest Of Darkness “The Ogress”

Since 40% of all Metal Classics come from Norway, a population of only 5% of the World’s Population.

 

We had to create an INTERNATIONAL Category for the top 100, top 500, top 700 albums of all-time.

Between 1993-2003 half of my record purchases from Norway, especially from the Norsk Svart Metal Style and The Genius TRUE NORWEGIAN GOTHIC METAL MOVEMENT.
