CRADLE OF FILTH Issue Recording UpdateTuesday, 30th December 2014
UK-based black metal veterans CRADLE OF FILTH have checked in with the following update:
“Guitarist Marek ‘Ashok’ Smerda has now finished all his parts for the new album, which promises to be, like forced eye grips, a real ‘eye-opener’! The album – which compromises ten tracks and festers under the working title of Hammer Of The Witches – is being recorded at Grindstone studios, Suffolk, under the exquisite therionship of producer Scott Atkins, and has been likened to the very gory glory days of Cradle’s yore.
Ashok, pumped to the Nines, had this to say about his experience…
‘There are some riffs on this album that are so fast and ornate that my mind literally started to bleed, as well as my hands! And there are also some guitar melodies so heart-rending that I actually wept… more blood! It was really coming thick and fast!
The good thing here is the emphasis on ‘blood’ though. A body can never get enough! The album is truly amazing and I think the result will be a really massive wall of sound. And we can’t wait to play this monster live! A merry fucking Xmas and a happy New Year to you all!’
The new album will be unleashed on June 26th, via Nuclear Blast.
CRADLE OF FILTH play Wacken, Rockharz, Brutal Assult, Summer Breeze, Graspop, and Hellfest amongst many more Summer festivals yet to be confirmed, and all before heading off to the glorious U.S. Of A for an extensive tour come Fall.
Stay tuned ‘Filth mongers!”
