Paul Allender (born November 17, 1970) is the guitarist of the British extreme metal band Cradle of Filth.

Early life

Paul Allender was born on 17 November 1970 in Colchestermarker, Essex, UKmarker.

At the age of six years old, his father introduced him to martial arts which led to a total way of life for him and the home which he grew up in.

He received his first guitar at the age of fourteen and played in staggered periods until he was nineteen years old because his martial arts training was always his first priority.

Cradle of Filth

He joined the band as the guitarist in 1992 and stayed until 1996. In 1996, Paul left Cradle of Filth to join The Blood Divine and to spend more time with his son. In 1998 Paul started another band called Primary Slave. In 2000, just before Primary Slave signed for a record deal, Paul rejoined Cradle of Filth after receiving a phone call from Dani asking him to rejoin, along with drummer Adrian Erlandsson and keyboardist Martin Powell on the band's album, Midian.

While performing on stage with Cradle of Filth at Bloodstock Open Air in August 2009, a member of the audience threw a Gobstopper at the stage which hit Paul on his spine in his lower back. Paul was then sent to the hospital which caused the performance to end early.

Graphic art

Paul also has an art side project known as "Vomitorium: The Dark Art Of Cindy Frey And Paul Allender". He also produced the artwork for New Project's debut album Ultraviolent Light.
