"This video was captured on the farms of Llama Magic in Suttons courtesy of Glynda 'Llama Mama' Bluhm.

In addition to the re-issuing of "Total Fucking Darkness," Cradle of Filth has checked in with the following update about starting work on a new album:
"The European tour was a massive success and decidedly awesome to slay the least! Hence this quick post to thank everyone for coming out in support of the band... You 'orrible lot were great and certainly pepped up our performances! So thank you all once again from the bottom of our filthy hearts (or indeed the heart of our filthy bottoms!) and see you all later in the year! More dates pending...
"Plus, we will begin to write the new album shortly, which promises to be an absolute blinder, enflamed as we are from playing an Old Skool set for the last nineteen shows!"
Cradle of Filth was recently covered in our Sunday Old School column as part of Black Metal History Month, and this upcoming album will follow previous full-length "The Manticore and Other Horrors" (reviewed here).
