So I'm one of the CoF fans out there. Principles of Evil Made Flesh and Dusk and Her Embrace are two grade a black metal albums for me. Back when the symphonic and gothic elements were at a minimum. They have super intricate and furious riffing, absurdly harsh vocals, and an all around dark atmosphere throughout. Very well executed bm imo. Any bands that kinda do the same? Definitely with a main highlight in the guitars, technical and catchy, fast riffing. Throw in just a little bit of symphony to expand the sound.

I assume you've heard Hecate Enthroned's The Slaughter of Innocence?

Also, back around the turn of the century, Enochian Crescent were described as "Cradle of Filth in a parallel universe where gothic music never existed."

I'm tempted to suggest the first couple Bal-Sagoth albums.

Besides "The Slaughter Of Innocence", chech out Hecate Enthroned's EP "From Promethean Shores".

you could also try nokturnal mortum's lunar poetry demo, that one is vaguely reminiscent of COF at that time imo. hecate enthroned is indeed the most obvious recommendation here. maybe graveworm from italy as well, but HE probably comes closest.
CoF made fairly unique (and very good) music at that time, so there's not too much to recommend actually. lunar poetry might be a long shot already.

I've only heard HE mentioned by name but never explored them, but I'll check them out since seems to be a popular suggestion. Listened to some older Graveland albums before and enjoyed the twangy kinda guitar riffs.

I've always been meaning to check out Bal Sagoth and Nokturnal Mortem already.

Along with those two albums in the OP, I also always gotta go on to praise CoF's V Empire EP, which is their best work in my opinion and pretty much one of the sickest black metal releases out there. Their guitar work was just sublime

I know just the band you are looking for

I recommend Black Countess they are a Symphonic Gothic/Black metal band from Russia they sound alot like old Cradle of Filth trust me just give it a listen and you will see exactly what I mean.

Another band that I recommend is Anthelion this band I believe was heavily influenced from Cradle lots of similarities
Symphonic Black Metal, Backing Female Vocals, The Vocalist in this band does the same vocal style that Dani Filth does those high screams mixed with deep growls. Where Hecate Enthroned and old Cradle of Filth stopped with that sound this band continued. In my opinion this is like old COF but better
