Formed: 1991
From: Suffolk, United Kingdom
Last Known Status: Active

Background

It all began in 1991, the first of an unholy trinity of demos was complete. The young lads knew they had started something dark; something evil; something out of this world. They didn't disappoint with the release of their debut album 'The Principle of Evil Made Flesh' in 1994 on the label Cacophonous. The full length CD was a menagerie of gothic keyboards, metal riffing and Vampyric imagery. In other words the ultimate hammer horror soundtrack.

Drawing from an incredibly infinite list of influences, including the likes of Bathory, Celtic Frost and Diamanda Galas, and also the literary genius of Lord Byron, Sheridan LeFanu, Friedrich Nietzsche, Bram Stoker and Charles Baudelaire, Cradle Of Filth have produced albums of ever increasing quality. Soaring, sonic masterpieces that envelop you and take you away into the darkest depths of the collective Cradle mind. A dreamlike place full of legend, myths and Vampyres.

With 10 years in the past, Cradle Of Filth only have the future to conquer. Their recent concerts have built a fan base they never dreamed of. They truly have withstood the test of time.

Cradle Of Filth: Japanese Version Of Nymphetamine

Cradle Of Filth bassist Dave Pybus has posted the following studio update on the band's official web site:

"The new album is finished and the promo tour has started which saw me and [vocalist] Dani [Filth] travel through Cologne - Germany, Stockholm - Sweden, Amsterdam - Holland, Milan - Italy and New York - USA. There is a 6-track CD featuring unmixed and unmastered songs gone out to the press which rumour has it can be downloaded on the net. I wanna personally thank whoever did this for us as it's helped the promotion of 'Nymphetamine' a thousand fold and we now hope to go on and sell a million copies due to people downloading our songs before we put them on the website. Cheers for that. I'll buy you a beer if we ever meet. You can officially download the title track for us when it appears on the 'Resident Evil' soundtrack later this month. Thanks.

"One thing not many people have heard so far is our Bathory 'Bestial Lust' cover, which is set to appear on Japanese release of 'Nymphetamine' as an extra track. We did this before Bathory mainman Quorthon died but we'd still like to think of it as a tribute to them. Maybe this track will appear on our special edition early next year, so rest of the world... don't worry.

"The video shoot for 'Nymphetamine' takes place this week in London at a secret location and [former Theatre Of Tragedy and current Leaves's Eyes singer] Liv Kristine WILL be featured in the video. Dani tells us: 'It's sort of a murder ballad. The vibe of it is going to be like you are watching theatre. It's going to be very Shakespearian, but the lead characters are actually both females, so there is going to be a slight lesbian kink to it.' Nice... I spent some of today choosing the models for the video.

"Preparation for our South American tour has now begun and we are working on the set list in rehearsals, which is leaning more towards older tracks for the fans down there. 'Nymphetamine' will be released while we are actually in Colombia (on the 28th September), so plenty of reason for us to celebrate! As for touring plans in the rest of the world... bands tipped to be playing with us range from Mudvayne, Lacuna Coil, 3 Inches Of Blood in the USA and Type O Negative in Europe before Christmas. All this can change so please don't quote me on it. I'd just rather people hear it from the band instead of unreliable sources."

Cradle Of Filth Studio Update

Former THEATRE OF TRAGEDY/current LEAVES' EYES vocalist Liv Kristine has recorded a guest appearance for the new CRADLE OF FILTH album, "Nymphetamine", due late September through Roadrunner Records.

"We are now in the mixing stage of the 'Nymphetamine' session at Chapel studios, Linclonshire, UK," bassist Dave Pybus writes on the group's web site. "This is headed by Colin Richardson with the presence of Dan Turner and occasionally [producer] Rob [Caggiano]. The word on the street is this record sounds massive. So far we have six songs mixed down: 'Gilded C**t', 'Medusa and Hemlock', 'Gabrielle', 'Swansong for a Raven', 'Filthy Little Secret' and 'English Fire'.

"I personally got to hear these few mixes on our return from last weekends festivals in Budapest and Waldrock in Holland," Dave added. "We were away from home for quite some time actually due to all the traveling between shows. We are mixing in-between festivals, which can be quite chaotic. I must admit, the new stuff does sound like nothing we have done before. And yes, I know all bands say that about their new material, but this 'experiment' of us playing together in the studio has really started to pay off. OK, its slower, and a lot more hard work, but we are trying to capture something special with atmosphere which is somehow lost in all that digital editing found in modern recordings. It's very aggressive. Gives it the edge we were looking for. Totally in your face for the most part haha. Maybe, it will be like a year after this record is out that we truly realize how cool this album will be due to that process. Only time will tell. It's exciting, that's for sure."

Dani Filth Talks About New Album, 'Nymphetamine'

CRADLE OF FILTH singer Dani Filth (a.k.a. Dani Davey) has commented on the band's upcoming CD, "Nymphetamine", the group's first for new label Roadrunner Records.

The follow-up to last year's "Damnation and a Day", "Nymphetamine" (roughly translated as the druggish beast-like addiction to beautiful, classical women) was produced by ANTHRAX guitarist Rob Caggiano, who has previously worked with the group during the mixing stage for "Damnation…". Mixing duties were handled by Colin Richardson (FEAR FACTORY, MACHINE HEAD, NAPALM DEATH).

"We weren't under any pressure to make this record and that's been the catalyst for us to create something really incredible," Dani said. "The only way to top the last album was to go a completely different way, so it's a real mixture of styles this time. We haven't anchored ourselves to a concept. It was a real pleasure to write on a variety of different themes and the music is really diverse and sonically precise. The whole thing sounds perfect and very fucking heavy."

"Nymphetamine" is due this fall through Roadrunner.

CRADLE OF FILTH bassist David Pybus had previously described the new material as an "eclectic mix between the group's 'Damnation..' and [1998's] 'Cruelty and the Beast' albums with a renewed vigor for melody, songmanship and plain fucking weirdness spat into the smelting bowl."
