CRADLE OF FILTH guitarist Paul Allender recently spoke to Top5Tracks.com about.... you guessed, his five favourite songs. His list is as follows:
1) IRON MAIDEN - 'The Trooper'
2) MOTÖRHEAD - 'Ace Of Spades'
3) JUDAS PRIEST - Defenders Of The Faith (entire album)
4) DIO - 'Holy Diver'
5) CRADLE OF FILTH - 'For Your Vulgar Delecation'
Allender on 'The Trooper': "I like this song because it was this track that got me into metal. I bought this when it came out just because I liked the cover. Once I put it on I was hooked for life!"
