FROM A PREVIOUS article called how LINDSAY SCHOOLCRAFT became the most important world class female vocalist in heavy metal music

Lindsay Schoolcraft Kick*ASS metal’s pick for the most important female vocalist in heavy metal, circa 2013…!!!!!!!

Cradle of Filh became the most important band in heavy metal, per Sounds of Death Magazine #4…if you own everything by that publication under the monikers Sounds of Death Magazine, Anvil Magazine, and now DOA magazine. You would know why I worship this band so hard.

Before Cradle of FIlth became the worlds greatest band of all time alongside Crest of Darkness, the best bands were before that were Mercyful Fate, and Metallica, because Metallica has alot of Mercyful Fate in there riffing and structures. So i rate Mercyful Fate higher than Metallica, Metallica picked up where Mercyful Fate left off, and later Exodus were total metal riffage, better than Metallica, because Exodus were total Mercyful Fate worshippers.

Credit goes to Jinx Damwson, and Coven making music like Jefferson Starship but paving the way, for the outre’, avant garde and gothic metal aesthetics. And latter on Sabbat “History of A Time To Come” was released making thinking man’s music even more uber*metal and KICK*ASS. But before that there was this killer band out of Italy called Necrodeath, very important band to Kick*ASS Metal and Cradle of Filth fanatics.

Deicide was up next for the band MORE METAL THAN METAL…and are total death metal gods in there own right….but no keyboards or female backing vocals, which I am a true believer in.

1993 looked like Mayhem and Burzum were going to be the best bands ever….this is all Cradle of Filth had to jump over. The guy in Burzum murdered the Dude in Mayhem, and both bands fell to the wayside. So in my Mind, it was up to Emperor to rule the world, but Cradle of FIlth had more VISION…armed with nothing more than there vision, to created the best of true extreme metal. It happened in February 1994 with the Cradle of Filth debut “The Principle of Evil Made Flesh”. Nihil 1 on Cacophonous Records…but it was the jump to Music For Nations, where the band got better production…and just ruled the world of actual extreme metal.

Emperor and Dimmu Borgir are intellegent bands, but Cradle of FIlth had Sarah Jezebel Deva….so know this is the best band in metal. I perfer bands with keyboards, symphonic, Gothic and the beauty and the beast vocal configuration. So Cradle of Filth easily shot over Emperor, because they are more extreme and more metal, because they had World Class Vocalist Sarah Jezebel Deva…!!!!!

So in 2007….Lindsay Schoolcraft perfecting here style.. At it at a dedicated level since age 7. Released, the brilllant Mary and The Black Lambs, CD “As the City Sleeps”….Maturing at a quick rate as a vocalist and a human being. A new vision happened which she titled the new solo project Schoolcraft, and in 2012, the best symphonic album was released and KICK*ASS METAL’S, album of the year, with RamZet’s “Freaks in Wonderland” and Cradle of Filth’s” The Manticore and other Horrors”.

the Manticore and other Horrors, was relased in time for Halloween ….everyday is Halloween at KAM !!!!!!!!!

So the serendipity, happened because of being involved in a project called Eve’s Apple, which is a group of the Worlds best female vocalist in one KICK*ASS band.

Melissa Feerlak .of Visions of Atlantis fame, recommended the metal GODDESS to the metal legends, and a interview was set-up, and Cradle of Filth was impressed with the World Class Vocalist, and she became a live member of Cradle of Fitlh live member….So myself I would love to see this World Class Vocalist on the upcoming Splatter Platter …aka LP and CD. Because Lindsay Schoolcraft, is one of the most dedicated, most trained and highly educated, musician around these days..

Not only is she a master of songwriter, she is a world class keyboard player, a world class Vocalist and a world class singer.and lets not forget that she is also a world class HARP player !!!!!! ……fuck yea !!!!!!!

THIS hard work DID NOT go unnoticed by Kick*ASS Metal, so Schoolcraft’s ” RUSHING THROUGH THE SKY” was the KAM 2012 album of the year. Because the music theory knowledge and timbre and melodic songwriting is second to NO one, and second to NONE

I want to point out at this point Lindsay Schoolcraft has a unique, original style, that is equal parts her own originality, Amy Lee of Evanescence, Bjork, and uber gothic GODDESS Jessicka Addams of Jack*Off*Jill and the awesome Scarling…Every Cradle of Filth and Marilyn Manson fanatics, should have stacks of Jack*Off*Jill and Scarling CD’s, at the ready

What is special of Jessicka Addamms, is that her authenticity is metal and rock to the core and to the bone…I had to go all the way back in my record collection to 1981, and dig up old Plasmatics albums to find a band that had this much of a dangerous and 2 middle fingers in your face rock and roll attitude .

Every metal fan should have a Jessicka Addams influence, and Lindsay Schoolcraft understands this, while her 828,000 sub-peers….do not understand this at all…easily putting Lindsay at the forfront of the current heavy metal movement. Now speaking of peers Canada has two world Class Vocalist, Chibi of The Birthday Massacre, and Lindsay Schoolcraft of Mary and the Black Lamb, Schoolcraft, Eve’s Apple and Cradle of Filth fame…So yeah the most important # 1 female vocalist circa for heavy metal is Lindsay Schoolcraft…Even if Lindsay Schoolcraft is just a live member, i will collect every fan footage of her tenure of cradle of Filth. And I will redo, the Gary Sharp Young, Definitive Guide to Heavy Metal to include the Lindsay Schoolcraft success story.

The Lindsay Schoolcraft – era of Cradle of Filth happened on February 2013….but stated back in late 2012….time marches on.

I will be a diehard dedicated Lindsay Schoolcratt fan the rest of my life….!!! And it would blow off our faces and blow our minds if this world Class musician got a chance to light up a Cradle of Filth album…!!! I hope I get a chance to see this legend live !!!!

I promised the metal goddess, if I see her Live as a Cradle of Filth member….I already decided I will scream Lindsay until I pass f@!king out….then do my Cradle of Filth chants and whip me into a total metallic frenzy !!!!!!!
Cradle of Filth forever !!!!

Sarah Jezebel Deva forever !!!!

Lindsay Schoolcraft forever.

So major ragers…I do this article so you can not be shocked when I state at the end of the year the #1 female vocalist  in heavy metal circa 2013 is Lindsay Schoolcraft !!

 

 

FROM A PREVIOUS ARTICLE called Lindsay Schoolcraft’s favorite Cradle of Filh album
KICK*ASS METAL’S RATING SCALE

100 TIMELESS MASTERPIECE * 95 MASTERPIECE * 90 ESSENTIAL * 85 CLASSIC * 80 KILLER METAL

Cradle of Filth
Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa
Nuclear Blast
Cat # 2661-2

February 20th, 2013 Ushered in a new era of KICK*ASS Heavy Metal for Metal Gods and Legends Cradle of Filth. It is called the Lindsay Schoolcraft-era of Cradle of Filth.

I am a fan of the beauty and beast vocal configuration. And there is nobody better at this style than Cradle of Filth (except Crest of Darkness norway, had Kristin Fjellseth for 2 albums in 1999 & 2001, Kristin Fjellseth of Pale Forest fame, that band is like a Norwegain THE GATHERING, when Anneke Van Giersbergen was the lead Vocalist, and every Cradle of Filth fan worships the Ground The Gathering and Anneke Van Giersbergen walks on).

So I name the different era’s of Cradle of Filth after the Legendary Female Vocalist.

So Febrauary 20th, 2013 starts the Lindsay Schoolcraft-era of Cradle of Filth.

Which is pretty exciting for me since I am a fan of her bands. Mary And The Black Lambs, and I own 2 copies of her top 10 album of 2012.

Schoolcraft “Rushing Through The Sky”. I intend to buy 2 more copies of this album.

In honor of Lindsay Schoolcraft ascension from being a super star international World Class Vocalist from Canada from having one of the most awesome music albums ever released…To a awesome ascension to the Number # 1 Female Vocalist in heavy metal, aka a singer in the GODLY MAJOR RAGER, metal legends and metal gods. Cradle of Filth.

I deciced to AGAIN purchase the ENTIRE Cradle of Filth back catalogue in order to get my total Cradle of Filth CD count up to 100 Cradle of Filth CD’s of there 17 albums. I have the same count as Brian Russ, over at BNR pages. Right now I only own like 75 or 80 Cradle Of Filth CD’s. So my home work assignment for myself, is to get this count up to 100 CD’s.

Right now the top 10 KICK*ASS METAL albums for 2013 are
Crest of Darkness * In The Presence of Death
What ever Cradle of Filth releases
If there is a Schoolcraft solo album, 1n 2013
The Monolith Deathcult * Tetragrammatron….I mean the band has baseball bats, and Machetes, in there press photos
Tristania (NORWAY)* Darkest White
Enforcer * Death By Fire
Satan (THE BAND and not the Religion) *Life Sentence
Stolen Babies * Naught
Nervosa (THRASH BRAZIL) debut album…thrash..out soon? on Napalm Records

So since today is July 1st …I am already letting you know that Lindsay Schoolcraft will get my vote for #1 most important female vocalist in heavy metal, circa 2013. So in 6 months from now. You can not claimed KICK*ASS METAL sided-swiped you, with Lindasy Schoolcraft #1 Female Voclaist in heavy metal circa 2013.

The best bands in heavy metal ever are
Crest of Darkness
Cradle of Fith
Mercyful Fate
Exodus
Metallica
Deicide
Morbid Angel.

February 21st, 1994 is the time in histroy when Cradle of Filh became my favorite band of all*time. This was noticed also by the Death Metal GODLY MAJOR RAGER publication Sounds of Death isusse # 4…there first Cradle of Filth Review, and Sounds of Death isusse # 9 is the first ever Cradle of Filth interview with that publication.

Whoa what a cool album….Amy Lee, Bjork, Jessicka Addams, Chibi…. these are not only Lindsay Schoolcraft’s major influences/ major inspirations. THESE ARE SCHOOLCRAFT’S PEERS…!!!!!!

Without a single hestistation I would put Schoolcraft in the upper echelon of world class vocalist, ala Amy Lee, etc….

Since I consider this album totally and highly original, I will not be making tons of comparisons. Because Since hard rock and heavy metal are pretty much have the same birthdate 1970 with Led Zeppelin for hard rock and heavy metal with its February 13, 1970 birthday with Black Sabbath’s “Black Sabbath” (there were cool albums before this, as you know from reading the second edition of the book Encylopedia Metallica, which was released in August 1983, which has to be heavy metal’s 1st “holy bible” of sorts). I am not concering myself with sub-genre or genre this falls under.

Because with Andrea Meyer and Sarah Jezebel Deva. I will always seekout albums by Schoolcraft, no matter what moniker is being used. What does Lindsay Schoolcraft, Andrea Meyer and Sarah Jezebel Deva have in common, is that they are members (live/ or studio) of HEAVY METAL GODS Cradle of Filth.

Lindsay Schoolcraft does Live work for Heavy Metal GODS Cradle of Filth, since Feb. 2013.

Does Lindsay Schoolcraft create a legend with “Rushing through the Sky”. I say FUCK YEAH !!!!! because this album has a timeless quality to its songwriting style and utilization of dynamics and there are some genius experimental songwriting passages, that makes this more than essential.

As a songwriter Linday Schoolcraft, makes sure every song has a hook with the vocal melodies and the music itself always has a hook. A song without a hook is just a bunch of parts and pieces. The songwriting and understaning of music theory is more than above average, I would say Lindsay Schoolcraft, is a genius when it comes to understand how to construct a timeless song. And sings every song with true conviction and total passion.

Lindsay Schoolcraft is THE REAL DEAL….!!!!!!!

Buy or F*!@*!@ DIE !!!!!!!!!

Lindsay Schoolcraft is THE REAL DEAL….!!!!!!!
