I think I found it. "Drrood" (Source: http://www.visiblemantra.org/pronunciation.html)

  • "The dental consonants (t th d dh) are pronounced with the tongue on the teeth. In English our tongue is often on the gum behind the teeth, making our dental stops sound like something between a true dental and a retroflex."
  • "ṛ as in cur"
  • "u as in put or foot"
  • "Aspirated consonants (kh, gh, ch, jh, th, dh, ph, bh): the h's are pronounced so that th as in hothouse, not as in theatre."

I’m not sure how you arrive at the decision that the kh is silent. It must be something like Drood-keh although without overdoing the ‘keh’ part too much. 

Then say that with a dodgy Russian accent and we are probably halfway there.

I think I found my mistake.  I think that it is closer to "Dru-huh," where the kh at the end is unvoiced and unaspirated.

I don't speak Sanskrit or study language, so I am finding this pronunciation very difficult.

    • "Wizard Bloody Wizard" is like the lifting of a thick fog.  From the off there's a feel of a dense weight being lifted from the band's signature occult/stoner blend of doom.  By the time I get to track two "Necromania" things almost seem like a dark cock-rock affair which is odd.   The over-arching feel though is of a band who have gone off the boil somewhat.  Despite the aforementioned lifting of the heavy atmosphere "Wizard Bloody Wizard" seems more of ground out effort made under some duress resulting in the album being robbed in the main of any feel...

    • I am a huge Cradle of Filth fan and on the album Hammer of The Witches they have a song called Right Wing of The Garden Triptych and based on the lyrics I believe it is a reference to the painting Garden of Earthy Delights by Hieronymus Bosch. Does anyone know if this is true or not?

    • Whether you love or hate Cannibal Corpse, their penchant for churning out accessible, fun and consistent DM can't be denied. Yes when they suck they really do suck (Gallery of Suicide), but even if technically never more complicated than most Kinder egg toys there's always a familiarity to CC albums that appeals. I get those that hate that familiarity. If you prefer to become lost in a Portalesque vortex when enjoying your extreme metal then the obvious churn of CC won't be for you. However, for every complex and archaic DM record in my collection I like to have a fair amount of surety too (someone will be along in a minute to replace "surety" with "safety" no doubt) and "Red Before Black" is as familiar to me after a few listens as most of the band's previous output...
