Cradle of Filth frontman Dani Filth has posted a new blog online announcing the band is writing material to follow-up the "Darkly, Darkly Venus Aversa" album (reviewed here). An excerpt from the blog follows:

"Long time dead fellow creatures of the underworld! Sorry for my lengthy absence but this time of the year always brings out the creative touch-paper in the band, so we've made like busy little bees and started to write the follow up to last year's 'Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa' , with two songs ('The Abhorrent' and 'Siding With The Titans' ) already past the demoing stage, with a third track snapping swiftly on their heels. I can reveal that they are sounding sonically, well, like Cradle of Filth, but in a very good way. But then again I would say that, wouldn't I? Whether it be true or not I think the songs thus far sound fab, very atmospheric but driving headlong, eerily cinematic and really memorable.

"At the present we are looking at entering the studio around the third week in March 2012 with that ever tentative release date of next All Hallow's Eve to crawl eventually toward. This would put the band firmly back out on the road towards the end of next year, possibly straight into the maw of Europe. There will be new things in the Cradle Of Filth canon as we really try not to stagnate, well not outside of our stage clothes anyway, but rest assured what has surfaced already is killer material indeed. And no, it's not's another fucking concept album!

"As for other matters the EP/DVD 'Evermore Darkly' should be out in a smattering of days, something has always been fan-related and served up like loving gloop just in time for Hallowe'en. It's an expansive release as we tried to get as much cool stuff on it as possible, including squeezing the whole hour-long show at Graspop into the jar as well. I think fans are going to love it, and if you don't, tough shit. We do!"

I actually do like their music, though I haven't bought their albums in a while. I think I might catch up on all that one of these days. But his choice of words in that statement could REALLY be twisted the wrong way... it just made me LOL.

i'm glad they're not trying to be the trend-setters of black/extreme metal. Now they're just catering to their fanbase. Their recent sound has been pretty consistent, not too mainstream or poppy. Looking forward to a new non-concept album.
