    Cradle of Filth's 13 Most Deliciously Gothic Song Titles

    The British symphonic black-metallers are back with 'Hammer of the Witches,' their 11th album. And like Cannibal Corpse and Slayer, they're masters of (comically?) dark wordplay

    • "Godspeed on the Devil's Thunder"

      Album: 2008's Godspeed on the Devil's Thunder

      Goth factor: H. P. Lovecraft drunk on absinthe in a cemetery holding a copy of the Necronomicon in one hand and the Egyptian Book of the Dead in the other while telling Edgar Allan Poe about his recent trip to Hot Topic.

      Is the song egregiously, amazingly long? Nope! A perfectly manageable bite of putrid pestilence.
