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 Comments On New Album

Cradle of Filth's Dani Filth has posted a new blog online discussing the band's upcoming new album "The Manticore and Other Horrors," which is due out on October 30th, 2012. You can read the full blog right here or catch this excerpt from Dani:

"Greetings fellow munchkins, At last I can verify that the witch is dead. The album is finished, and indeed finally titled; The Manticore and Other Horrors is officially signed, sealed and delivered to the Devil's doorstep with a note written in spidery ink apologising for the delay.

"Of which there was basically none come to think of it, as we worked like the damned to bring this album kicking and screaming into being over the last few months. With the fulfillment of the vocals at Springvale studios, we reconvened at Scott Atkin's Grindstone studios (newcomer Daniel Firth having just finished his bass off), to tackle a mix that had already been pre-waxed extensively into shape, and to finish what choir and female vocals were left to undertake, for what I call on this album, the evil faerie-dusting.

"Then it was three weeks deep (separated by a Hellgig weekend) locked away in the verdant Suffolk countryside gently coaxing our Frankenstein to life, assailed by some of the strangest weather an English July has ever seen, nibbling ever further and further into the mix as the heavens violated the earth. Goddamn that outside toilet!

"So here and now, with Bod as my witness, I can truly say that The Manticore and Other Horrors sounds fxxking awesome, a real noticeable twist in tone but all the better for it. It's ornate, taut, punk and aggressive but very much the neo-classical whore of yore, spitting raw bloody fury through the maw of the majestic. But I would say that, I've had a firm hand in it's oily whelping! More...

Cradle Of Filth Unveils New Album Artwork

Cradle of Filth has revealed the cover art for its upcoming 10th studio album, "The Manticore and Other Horrors," due out October 30th in North America via Nuclear Blast Records. Artwork comes courtesy of Matthew Vickerstaff of Darkwaveart and can be viewed below. The following press release was issued about the album:

"Recorded in eight weeks at both Springvale and Grindstone studios (where it was also mixed by Scott Atkins), Suffolk, the album is a testament to the longevity of The 'Filth, as not only does it reek of Cradle's (feared or revered) brand of delicious metal vamperotica, but this thoroughly modern album places the band firmly in fresh killing fields anew.

"The Manticore and Other Horrors itself possesses an altogether new atmosphere for the band, incorporating a heavier, faster NWOBBM punk vibe that is both current and cruel, blended with ornate orchestration and the quirky immediateness of 2000's Midian opus. The album’s title can be likened to a bestiary, a collection of stories on monsters - personal demons, Chimeras, literary fiends and world-enslaving entities to blame but a few."

Commented the band’s infamous front man, Dani Filth, “This is our 10th commandment in metal. We have diversified and kept alive the spirit of this band and breathed it into something that I can proudly say, slays like an absolute motherf**ker. The Manticore is coming… Long live the filth!” More...

Dani Filth Issues Recording Update

Front man Dani Filth from Cradle of Filth has issued the following update about recording new material for an upcoming release:

"Greetings fellow travellers on the B1088 trunk road to darkness! Plenty of news to pass onto you this time, just like that horrid rash the pills were for. I know I promised you an update to arrive almost a month earlier than it has, but please rest assured that my absence has been totally necessary and hopefully you will feel justly rewarded by the news that the album has now progressed into the mixing stage, with nothing more than the choirs and female vocals to be scraped into the smelting pot.

"All the music and my vocals have been committed (as have their protagonists!) to the greater picture and it all sounds truly amazing, rest assured worrisome warts, with the final two songs, 'Succumb To This' and 'Nightmares Of An Ether Drinker' titulary being added to the final roster.

"The album has been split over two working studios; I have been based at Cradle's resident studio Springvale under the helmsmanship of Mark Harwood for the last month or so, whilst the music has been captured not ten miles up the road at Scott Atkin's Grindstone studio, enabling us to work parallel to one another and thus aid not only the creative itch, but the speed of the recording process too. Though typically that very first day I started and for the first time in over fifty years, the local farmer decides to dig up two hundred-odd tonnes of earth from the plot outside the studio, and bury it behind a subsiding barn on the hill, using as many clanking leviathans of machinery possible. The utter cad! More...

Cradle Of Filth Issues Album Update

Cradle Of Filth's front man Dani Filth has issued the following update on his blog about working on a new full-length album and the upcoming release of the "Midnight in the Labyrinth" orchestral album:

"Dear voracious night-gaunts,

"Salutations from the void as we prepare for the sweltering morbidity of Summer and the rigorous studio session that awaits the band as we prepare to begin recording our new, as yet untitled, tenth studio album (though there are numerous titles floating about the ether, most of them ludicrous, some a little more befitting…).

"April 21st is the day that our much-anticipated 'Midnight In The Labyrinth' orchestral album is to be released, on what is to be known as 'Record Store Day' (which is slightly ironic I know, seeing as no-one buys records these days, let alone ventures, God forbid, into a real life music store!) and it is sure not to disappoint. Unless of course you're NOT expecting a colossal slab of orchestral music in the vein of the great horror movie composers set to an appetite-whetting smorgasbord of Cradle's earlier classics.

"The album itself has turned out really well, with the mix by 'Dusk.. And Her Embrace's' Kit Woolven bringing a swathe of luxuriousness to the proceedings. Plus we managed to entice Sarah Jezebel Deva back to add her definitive touch to the female narrative and lead vocal parts (partly in exchange for me singing on a track on her new EP, and partly in exchange for thirteen pence in old money and half a mouldy Snickers bar).

Cradle Of Filth Unveils Orchestral Album Cover Art

Cradle of Filth unveiled the album art for the band's orchestral album "Midnight in the Labyrinth" (seen below), which reinvents tracks from the band's first four albums.

Guest vocalist Sarah Jezebel Deva will provide additional vocals the first CD. The album promises to be a full-on horror film soundtrack in the vein of Danny Elfman, Christopher Young or Jerry Goldsmith.

The release will consist of ten songs spanning 78 minutes (including the addition of a thirteen minute exclusive aural séance on CD1), and will include reworks of songs such as "Funeral In Carpathia," "The Twisted Nails Of Faith" and "Summer Dying Fast," which appeared as a teaser on the 2011 mini-album "Evermore Darkly" (see Metal Underground's review here.

OpEd

Re-recording Metal - For Better or for Worse?

Back in 2005, Dimmu Borgir was a band still basking in the unholy success of its latest outing “Death Cult Armageddon.” And yet instead of launching into a new opus for fans to consume the band members decided on a new approach; they would re-release an early and often praised album (“Stormblåst”) by completely re-recording it, updating the sound with modern production and slap “MMV” on the end. There had of course been prior examples of bands making this choice, but it was perhaps here that best truly crystallized the new era of metal re-recordings. No doubt you have heard of similar re-recordings in the same vein, perhaps most recently Gorgoroth’s “Under the Sign of Hell 2011” or Burzum’s “From the Depths of Darkness”? Perhaps not, but that’s what I aim to uncover for you here. More...
