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...
