Cradle of Filth Launch ‘Evermore Darkly’ Minisite, Preview New Music
The autumn season is imminent, so it’s the perfect time for brand new Cradle of Filth music to creep upon us. England’s blackest, most metallic and utterly theatrical blasphemers plan to release a crackling new CD/DVD set dubbed ‘Evermore Darkly,’ which is a companion item to last year’s ‘Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa.’ The ‘Evermore Darkly’ DVD will include a documentary and a full live performance. Mwuhahahahaha. Check out the minisite dedicated to all things ‘Evermore Darkly’ by going here.
The set is littered with plenty of fan-pleasing COF rarities, including new tracks, such as the cleverly titled ‘Thank Your Lucky Scars,’ along with a remix of ‘Forgive Me Father,’ which was handled by Anthrax‘s Rob Caggiano. Other rarities, such as an extended remix of ‘Lilith Immaculate,’ will also be packaged within. The mini-album commences with a classic reworking of ‘Summer Dying Fast,’ which teases the blackened British band’s upcoming orchestral project. Even more orchestral Cradle? That, we gotta hear!
The DVD will include the live show, which was filmed at last year’s Graspop festival in Belgium. As if there weren’t enough Cradle odds and sods, a video for ‘Lilith Immaculate’ will also be included. The on-the-road doc, which was filmed in the summer of 2011, is cheekily titled ‘You Can’t Polish a Turd, But You Can Roll it in Glitter.’ The doc will show off the band’s life on the road and backstage, reveling in the twisted glamour and the wretched filth!
