The new release with feature fully orchestral interpretations of songs taken from its first four albums. In a posting made through Dani Filth's official blog site he commented on the release by saying:

"All songs will be fully orchestrated akin to a horror movie soundtrack (think Danny Elfman, John Williams, Christopher Young, etc.) and are comprised solely of tracks from our first four releases" — 1996 EP "Vempire Or Dark Faerytales In Phallustein", 1994's "The Principle Of Evil Made Flesh", 1996's "Dusk... And Her Embrace" and 1998's "Cruelty And The Beast" — "'Funeral In Carpathia' being my favorite conversion thus far."

the orchestrations that are created for these songs are on a grand scale of their own. I was hoping that COF or Dimmu would have done something like this. Dimmu does have about 7 orchestra versions of their songs, but if you want something done right........

Cradle of filth hasn't released anything halfway decent since nymphetamine, I don't see why this is any different or will be any better

Darkly, darkly, venus aversa is very good album, and it has everything that real Cof fan should love. The only thing that I would change about Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa is production - I would create a little more raw production, but to me DDVA is faster Principle... mixed with Dusk... and Nymphetamine.
