CRADLE OF FILTH At Work On New Material

Wednesday, 2nd April 2014

British extreme metallers CRADLE OF FILTH have begun work on the follow-up to 2012’s The Manticore And Other Horrors, with the hope of a release this time next year in 2015.

Comments CRADLE OF FILTH vocalist Dani “Filth” Davey: “Fired up from the recent spate of shows in Europe with co-headliners BEHEMOTH, the band have decided to forego the year away from writing, and leap back into the fray with vigour anew.

“The crux of three songs have already been broached and I can say the material is comparable to that of Dusk… And Her Embrace [1996], Cruelty And The Beast [1998] and Midian [2000], albeit with a fresher sound. I can’t define it exactly, as it incorporates a wide variety of styles and dark emotions as one would come to expect from a CRADLE record. One thing is certain, though: this next release is going to be pushing the boundaries of what the band can achieve, and with forthcoming live shows peppering the writing process, I know this album is going to be fuelled by 101% metal fury!”

At last, after more than 20 years, Total Fucking Darkness, the infamous third demo from CRADLE OF FILTH, will be officially released in vinyl format on May 5. Housed in a heavy gatefold sleeve with paintings featuring the twisted visions of BBC Radio One presenter and occult artist Daniel Carter, the release will include some tracks previously unreleased by the band.
