Hecate Enthroned  

Being a British black metal band invites inevitable comparisons to Cradle Of Filth, a fate that has befallen Hecate Enthroned for much of their early career (and with the ex-vocalist serving time in COF once upon a time, the comparisons are all the more unavoidable). And indeed, the early Hecate albums do resemble early Cradle albums to a point, featuring a similar symphonic black metal style, as well as some of the most ungodly shrieking vocals I've heard in a long time. Ultimately, though, as both bands grow, they will naturally grow apart, and that is what has happened here, particularly since the more recent releases, such as Kings Of Chaos, show a noticeable shift towards death metal, though still retaining some of the early black roots.
