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 Posts Graphic Novel Teaser

Cradle of Filth recently announced the upcoming release of a new graphic novel, and now the band has posted a teaser video, which can be viewed below. Cradle of Filth also comments:

"We at Cradle of Filth have premiered a new short film to promote our upcoming foray into graphic novels, The Curse of Venus Aversa. Produced by Greylight Studios, the movie purports to show a secret ceremony in New Orleans recorded on a hidden camera. The graphic novel itself is co-written by vocalist Dani Filth and New Orleans comic book author Kurt Amacker, and takes place in a Victorian world populated by images, themes, and horrors drawn from the Filth’s sprawling back catalog. The entire 76-page graphic novel is rendered in haunting black and white art by illustrator Montgomery Borror.

"The initial Kickstarter campaign to support the project smashed through its goal in only four days, but continues through November 9th. The campaign also offers fans a chance to order limited edition t-shirts and work shirts by Sigh Co. Graphics, and even handmade Dani Filth voodoo doll from Quarter Kids. The new film shows a ritual in New Orleans recorded on a hidden camera, in which the dolls are blessed by the city’s premiere vampire storyteller, Lord Chaz Howell."

From his home in Suffolk, Filth spoke on the movie, “I understood that the doll blessing ceremony took place, but things may not have gone as planned. Kurt sent me the video the other day. You’ll have to watch to see what happened. Strange things seem to occur in that city.”

Filth’s co-author, Kurt Amacker, stated from a dark bar in the city’s infamous French Quarter, “I think people need to see the film to understand what we might’ve uncovered here. I’ve still got a lot of unanswered phone calls out right now. Sometimes, New Orleans just kind of takes you. Regardless, I think people need to be careful when they accept these dolls into their homes.” More...

In Solitude To Support Behemoth, Cradle Of Filth

Looks like February will be bedazzled by a rather black sun when occult outfit In Solitude will embark on a 19-date European trek supporting Cradle of Filth on the band's co-headlining tour with Behemoth. Support on this tour also comes from Inquisition and Svarttjern.

In Solitude from Uppsala, Sweden is out now with third effort "Sister." Currently In Solitude is touring North America supporting Watain.

Behemoth meanwhile will release new album "The Satanist" in 2014. Frontman Nergal comments: “We are immensely proud to start promotion of 'The Satanist' on the release date of the album in such a noble company. It's been a while since we toured Europe for the last time… The wolf pack grew stronger and hungrier and with new opus and stage production we have so much more to offer. This European crusade will be the catalyst of 2 years long tour so keep your eyes open!”

Vocalist Dani Filth of Cradle of Filth also comments: “We are very much looking forward to touring with Behemoth et al, as I think the combined line-up for these momentous shows is definitely very killer. Prepare for some riotous shows immersed in such esteemed dark company, as Cradle traverses an Old Skool tour programme set against a viscerally visual backdrop of nocturnal metal supremacy. In other words, be there or be squared. Pinhead-style!” More...
