When your band becomes a cult phenomenon, it's impossible to avoid those few fans peppered within your audience that take their dedication to insane levels. Fans will cover their rooms with your posters, ink your lyrics into their skin, or in the case of Cradle of Filth singer Dani Filth, the reincarnation of serial killer Elizabeth Bathory will claim to have been your lover in a past life.

Cradle of Filth, 'Frost on Her Pillow'
Gojira have cracked out another win in our latest Death Match, beating out black metal legends Enslaved by a respectable margin. We needed to find a massive and worthy opponent for Gojira this week, because if the French metallers win one more match, their song 'The Axe' will be declared as immortal in the Death Match Hall of Fame.
A couple of weeks after releasing the audio version of 'For Your Vulgar Delectation,' Cradle of Filth has unveiled a lyric video for the track from their upcoming album 'The Manticore and Other Horrors.' It's set to be released on Oct. 30. Frontman Dani Filth also details the band's latest escapades, including a video shoot, on the band's blog.
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.
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.
