From the Cradle to Enslave is an EP by Cradle of Filth. It contains two original tracks; the title track and "Of Dark Blood and Fucking". The rest of the disc consists of two cover versions, a re-recording of a track from the album Dusk and Her Embrace, and a dance remix.
From the Cradle to Enslave was the first of Cradle of Filth's songs to have an accompanying video. The video was directed by Alex Chandon, who also made the film Cradle of Fear, starring Dani Filth. It featured explicit images of nudity and gore and was released in two versions, edited and unedited. Both versions can be found on the PanDaemonAeon DVD.
This was the first official Cradle release to attract the Parental Advisory warning.
Dani Filth revealed his antipathy towards the title track in Kerrang! issue 1130: "We have to play it at every gig... I'd like to erase it, so I wouldn't have to play it again. After a while you just want to play something different. There's something about the hook that just strikes a chord of fear down my spine."
The American release features "Dawn of Eternity" (Massacre cover) instead of "Perverts Church".
