British extreme/black metal heavyweights Cradle of Filth have launched a new website dedicated completely to their upcoming album 'The Manticore and Other Horrors.' Along with the website, Cradle of Filth have given fans their first taste of the 'Manticore' album with the track 'For Your Vulgar Delectation,' which is currently available for free download.
Cradle of Filth
After the release date of Oct. 30 for Cradle of Filth's upcoming tenth studio album 'The Manticore and Other Horrors' was announced last week, the band has now unveiled the cover art. Matthew Vickerstaff of Darkwaveart created the artwork for the record that was recorded at Springvale and Grindstone studios in Suffolk, England.
British extreme metal band Cradle of Filth are digging into the archives, reissuing eight previous releases in July via The End Records. Six of the reissues will hit stores on July 3, with the other two available July 31. Some of the material has not been previously available in North America.
Record Store Day is a goldmine for collectors and music geeks, with lots of limited edition material flooding the racks at indie retailers in a concerted effort to entice consumers into the stores. Cradle of Filth are giving headbangers more than enough reason to head to the local mom and pop shop, since the British black metal blasphemers will release 'Midnight in the Labyrinth' as a limited edition, two-disc set on April 21, according to a Facebook post.
Cradle of Filth singer Dani Filth offered a few new updates about his Temple of the Black Moon super group, which also features a member of Anthrax. The band is almost finished with 11 tracks, with Filth working on two others. He shared some song titles – we're most interested in hearing 'Last of the Vampire Playboys' and 'Don't Call Up What You Can't Put Down,' based on their names alone.
Cradle of Filth's Dani Filth on Future Projects
We recently spoke with Cradle of Filth vocalist Dani Filth about a collection of topics as broad as his vocal range. Loudwire was able to delve into the mind of one of metal's most iconic vocalists, with Mr. Filth offering responses regarding his connection to various Satanic organizations and his personal beliefs about religion as a whole.
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.
