“a masterful control over the multi-faceted Cradle of Filth sound; brutal vocal gymnastics, skull-rattling double-kicks, symphonic flourishes, dramatic narrative and balls-out axe-slinging all make their presence known, but in a manner which routinely serves to bolster the coherency of the greater whole…this fucking slays.” 9/10

CRADLE OF FILTH LAUNCHES “FORGIVE ME FATHER (I HAVE SINNED)” MUSIC VIDEO PREMIERE ON FANGORIA.COM‘; Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa’ due out this November on Nuclear Blast Records

September 29th, 2010
Cradle of Filth reveals artwork for 'Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa'

Cradle of Filth - 'Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa'

ENGLAND – Extreme metal’s most infamous act, Cradle Of Filth, has teamed up with America’s horror magazine, Fangoria, to premiere the band’s latest music video for the new track, “Forgive Me Father (I Have Sinned)”.  The video was directed by Dani Jacobs, and the song comes from the forthcoming full-length, Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa, to be released on Nuclear Blast Records on November 9th.  In the words of Cradle’s iconic frontman, Dani Filth, the band’s ninth studio album is their “most sinister and darkened fairytale.”  The music video for “Forgive Me Father (I Have Sinned)”, the album’s first single, does nothing to dispute that statement.  Head over to Fangoria.com now to see for yourself.

The Grammy nominated, Cradle Of Filth, continues to shock, excite, disgust and inspire in equal measures.  A loyal stalwart to the satanic horror ethos, Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa is a concept album based on Adam’s first wife, the lascivious demoness Lilith.  It was recorded at Monkey Puzzle Studios, near Bury St. Edmunds in Suffolk, England, and is the follow-up to 2008’s Godspeed On The Devil’s Thunder.  Artwork comes courtesy of Natalie Shau.

Cradle Of Filth – New Track Streaming

September 22nd, 2010

Cradle of Filth reveals artwork for 'Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa'

Cradle of Filth - 'Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa'

Cradle Of Filth – new track streaming on  Peaceville plus IPhone app launches with fan competition

A preview of a new track from Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa, the forthcoming album by Cradle Of Filth is now streaming on the album’s mini-site . The track, titled The Cult Of Venus Aversa, is also playing on the band’s new iPhone app which launched this week.

The free app contains audio samples, videos, pics and allows you to keep up with all the latest news from the band. The app also has a top users function which awards users points every time they use the app (i.e. write on the fan wall, post photo, share items to Facebook and Twitter, listen to tracks) and then ranks these users. The band are offering a special prize of a unique signed art print of the album’s artwork plus a signed copy of the album to whoever is the top user at midday (UK time) on the day of release (1st November 2010) Full terms and conditions are on the mini-site.

In addition to the new track the mini-site also features a video blog, info about the album, a gallery featuring new band pics and elements from the album artwork, a link to download a MP3 of the track Lilith Immaculate, downloads and more. The site is being updated on a weekly basis with new video blogs, fan competitions, promo videos, new downloads and more. We shall also be adding previews of a different track from the album every Wednesday.

Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa, released on the band’s own AbraCadaver imprint through Peaceville Records on November 1st and in the USA through Nuclear Blast on November 9th, is the band’s ninth studio album and in the words of Cradles infamous frontman Dani Filth is ‘without doubt the fastest and most brutal album we’ve created to date. As an acquaintance of the band so aptly noted, this is like Iron Maiden on crack in a graveyard of angels!’

‘This album is Cradle at our most sinister and darkened fairytale’, continues Dani. ‘A gothic horror themed slay-ride of fervour and perversion; yet amidst the orchestral melodrama and lush, cinematic production, there sits stalwart a ravening beast of furious riffing, flesh ripping vocals and monstrous, unstoppable percussion.’

Grammy nominated Cradle of Filth have been pioneers of extreme music since their debut in 1994 and have continued to evolve with each of their subsequent releases. Unafraid of ruffling a few feathers, the band have continually refused to bow to convention or to conform to prevalent trends and fads. Yet despite this uncompromising stance the band are still the most successful British heavy metal band since Iron Maiden, with legions of fans around the globe.

Never shy of embracing the epic, Cradle have constantly sought to push the boundaries of their art. Whether through elaborately theatrical stage shows (incorporating giant lumbering puppets, fire-breathing dancers, freaks and stilt-walkers from the notorious Circus Of Horrors), provocative merchandise (including the now legendary Jesus Is A C*** t-shirt), breathtaking artwork or the weighty subject matter of their albums (their previous one was a concept album telling the story of a French Lord who fought alongside Joan Of Arc, before embarking on a horrific killing spree), this is a band who have refused to be confined by the labels that have been placed on them.
The band (comprising of Dani Filth-vocals, Paul Allender and James McIlroy-guitars, David Pybus-bass, Martin Skaroupka-drums and Ashley Ellyllon-Keys) recorded Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa, the follow up to 2008s Godspeed on the Devil’s Thunder, at Monkey Puzzle studios near Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk. Cradle of Filth remain stalwarts to the satanic horror ethos by again composing a fully blown concept album, this time based on Adam’s first wife, the lascivious Demoness Lilith; throwing Medieval nuns, Knights Templars, Greek mythology and lashings of sex, occult lore and violent bloodshed into the smelting pot, to create a darkly erotic nightmare set to their unique scope of supreme vampyric metal. And with an as-near-as-dammit release date of All Hallows Eve 2010, Cradle of Filth are snarling at the leash to get out to all of their fans across the world. ‘We can’t wait to play this shit live’, admits Dani.

Yet despite this uncompromising stance the band are still the most successful British heavy metal band since Iron Maiden, with legions of fans around the globe.
Never shy of embracing the epic, Cradle have constantly sought to push the boundaries of their art. Whether through elaborately theatrical stage shows (incorporating giant lumbering puppets, fire-breathing dancers, freaks and stilt-walkers from the notorious Circus Of Horrors), provocative merchandise (including the now legendary Jesus Is A C*** t-shirt), breathtaking artwork or the weighty subject matter of their albums (their previous one was a concept album telling the story of a French Lord who fought alongside Joan Of Arc, before embarking on a horrific killing spree), this is a band who have refused to be confined by the labels that have been placed on them.
The band (comprising of Dani Filth-vocals, Paul Allender and James McIlroy-guitars, David Pybus-bass, Martin Skaroupka-drums and Ashley Ellyllon-Keys) recorded Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa, the follow up to 2008s Godspeed on the Devil’s Thunder, at Monkey Puzzle studios near Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk. Cradle of Filth remain stalwarts to the satanic horror ethos by again composing a fully blown concept album, this time based on Adam’s first wife, the lascivious Demoness Lilith; throwing Medieval nuns, Knights Templars, Greek mythology and lashings of sex, occult lore and violent bloodshed into the smelting pot, to create a darkly erotic nightmare set to their unique scope of supreme vampyric metal. And with an as-near-as-dammit release date of All Hallows Eve 2010, Cradle of Filth are snarling at the leash to get out to all of their fans across the world. We can’t wait to play this shit live, admits Dani. Long live the Filth!

Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa is the band’s ninth studio album, and in the words of Cradle’s infamous frontman, Dani Filth, is “without doubt the fastest and most brutal album we’ve created to date. As an acquaintance of the band so aptly noted, this is like ‘Iron Maiden on crack in a graveyard of angels!’”

“This album is Cradle at our most sinister and darkened fairytale,” continues Dani. “A gothic horror themed slay-ride of fervour and perversion; yet amidst the orchestral melodrama and lush, cinematic production, there sits stalwart a ravening beast of furious riffing, flesh ripping vocals and monstrous, unstoppable percussion.”

Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa was recorded at Monkey Puzzle Studios near Bury St. Edmunds in Suffolk, England. It is the follow-up to 2008’s Godspeed On The Devil’s Thunder. Artwork comes courtesy of Natalie Shau.

Given their resources, interest in the band, and track record in the U.S., we believe CRADLE OF FILTH will be best positioned to better the sales of their last album in North America.”

Grammy-nominated CRADLE OF FILTH have been pioneers of extreme music since their 1994 debut and have continued to evolve with each of their subsequent releases.  The band have continually refused to bow to convention or conform to prevalent trends and fads and have constantly sought to push the boundaries of their art.

This month, vocalist Dani Filth, guitarists Paul Allender and James McIlroy, bassist David Pybus, drummer Martin Skaroupka and keyboard player Ashley Ellyllon enter Monkey Puzzle Studios near Bury St. Edmunds in Suffolk, England to begin work on the follow-up to 2008’s Godspeed On The Devil’s Thunder.  Loyal stalwarts to the satanic horror ethos, CRADLE OF FILTH will compose another concept album, this time based on Adam’s first wife, the lascivious demoness Lilith.  Throwing medieval nuns, Knights Templars, Greek mythology, lashings of sex, occult lore, and violent bloodshed together into a creative milieu, the band are poised to create a darkly erotic nightmare set to their unique scope of supreme vampyric metal.
