Cradle of Filth Record Covers, New Album

Cradle of Filth have spent the last month toiling the days away inside Lincolnshire, England's Chapel Studios, working on what will be the band's seventh LP — which is being slated for an early June release through Roadrunner Records. Before Cradle of Filth began working on the as-yet-untitled outing, frontman Dani Filth said the band recorded a cover of Samhain's "Halloween II," which will appear on the soundtrack to the forthcoming film "Underworld: Evolution." When the new disc arrives in stores, fans will hear two very interesting covers the Filth's been perfecting: U.K. techno-pop trio Heaven 17's "Temptation" and "Stay" by Shakespear's Sister.

"We picked those because they are interesting," Filth said. "It's going to be a challenge, and that's the whole point. If you're going to do something, don't just do it for the sake of doing it. It has to be something you can make your own."

The band's reunited with Rob Caggiano (Bleeding Through, Anthrax), who produced 2004's Nymphetamine and 2003's Damnation and a Day, and at this point in the process, Filth said "all the drum and bass tracks are pretty much done, and I've already started recording vocals." The Filth will work on the album until the end of the month before breaking for a two-week U.K. tour; they'll reconvene on the sessions in mid-January.

The album, he said, will end up containing about 10 tracks, including "Libertina Grim," "Lovesick for Mina," "The Byronic Man" and "Cemetery and Sundown."

"This record heightens our rhythm, and there are lots of cool off-beats. It's just as meandering as much of our stuff, but there are also some really catchy tracks there," Filth said. "I've introduced more sing-y type parts. It's a bigger, better-sounding Cradle of Filth, and more direct and to the point."

The band's DVD, "Peace Through Superior Firepower," which hits stores November 22, features Filth's #1 fan, Bam Margera, skating and causing his usual mayhem at the start of the "Postcards From Vulgaria" documentary. And Filth says he caught some slack from his peers for the move, as he does for the whole Margera connection. His response? "I just say, 'F--- you. We'll choose our bloody friends. I get on well with the guy — so what?' "

Are you people smoking crack? This album has a 1 in 10 chance of being good, and Bam Margera has to be the biggest f***ing idiot in this world, The last 2 cradle albums sucked, and the only things Dani Filth can do right is screams and growls, not f***ing sing along, he cant f***ing sing and his vocals now just suck, Why dont you people pick up a Borknagar or Limbonic Art album.

the last two albums of filth could not have been better! I have been a cof fan for years now and have bought most of their albums which were all master pieces to me. If cof says they are coming out with another and they say it should bw one of their best, then i will take their word for it and get it. anybody who hates filth like they say does'nt know what metal is then and they probably take it in the a$$ by an old man

I have to disagree with you Nymphetamine was garbage compared to Midian, Cradle To Enslave,
Vempire and so on. It just seems like they abandoned both their black and death metal roots on
that last cd and added a nu-metalish/classic metal element to thier sound. Sorry I used to love this
band and I have seen them live twice but I think their going down that road that metallica, slipknot
and korn is on and that is mediocrity.

Hmm... Well, I anticipate, yet embrace myself for this album to be a dissapointment. I love every single track Cradle of Filth have handed me, but some more than others. I liked Damnation and A Day as much as the rest, and I didn't see anything wrong with it. But I do think Nymphetamine went down the hill a bit. But I'm still buying their new one -- It might be even better than Nymphetamine. I shudder to think that this new album will be a complete failure. I won't give up on Cradle of Filth until they hand me true garbage, and they have yet to do that.

if nothing else, this string of posts has gone from amusingly stupid to hilariously stupid.

Cradle have pretty much betrayed Black and Death metal. I enjoyed their debut a lot, but for me it's been nothing but a downhill marathon from Filth. Nymphetamine was the ultimate insult to my ears. I expect the next album will make me just as angry. if not moreso.

just another example of a band that couldv been brilliant, but chose otherwise.
