Paul Allender is a well-known musician and guitarist in the metal music scene. He first gained fame as a member of the popular British extreme metal band, Cradle of Filth, where he served as the lead guitarist and songwriter for more than a decade. During his time with Cradle of Filth, Allender played on several of the band’s most successful albums, including “Midian” and “Nymphetamine,” and helped shape their sound and image.
After leaving Cradle of Filth in 2014, Allender went on to pursue several other musical projects, including his own band, White Empress, which he founded in 2013. With White Empress, Allender was able to explore new musical directions and showcase his unique talents as both a guitarist and a songwriter. The band released their debut album, “Rise of the Empress,” in 2014, which was met with critical acclaim and helped establish them as a force to be reckoned with in the metal world.
Throughout his career, Allender has collaborated with numerous other artists and celebrities, including Marilyn Manson, Rob Halford of Judas Priest, and Cradle of Filth bandmate Dani Filth. He has also worked on various projects outside of music, including a collaboration with the fashion label New Rock, for which he designed a line of custom boots.
One of the most notable milestones in Allender’s career came in 2019 when he announced his return to Cradle of Filth after a five-year hiatus. The band’s fans were overjoyed to see Allender back on stage with the group, and his return helped reinvigorate the band’s sound and energy. Allender has since recorded and released new music with Cradle of Filth, including the critically acclaimed album “Existence Is Futile,” which was released in 2021.
In addition to his contributions to the music world, Allender is also an animal lover and advocate. In 2016, he even participated in a charity dog walk to raise funds for the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, one of the UK’s oldest and most well-respected animal shelters.
