British extreme metallers Cradle Of Filth have released the cover artwork to their upcoming album The Manticore And Other Horrors. This is the band’s 10th studio album and it is set to be released on October 30th in North America via Nuclear Blast.
The album’s cover artwork was done by Matthew Vickerstaff of Darkwaveart. You can click right here to see a bigger picture of the artwork.
The new album was recorded in eight weeks at both Springvale and Grindstone Studios (where it was also mixed by Scott Atkins), Suffolk. It is a testament to the longevity of the band, as not only does it reek of the band’s (feared or revered) brand of delicious metal vamperotica, but this thoroughly modern album places the band in fresh killing fields anew.
The album’s title can be likened to a bestiary, a collection of stories on monsters- personal demons, Chimeras, literary fiends and world-enslaving entities to blame but a few. Frontman Dani Filth commented: “This is our 10th commandment in metal. We have diversified and kept alive the spirit of this band and breathed it into something that I can proudly say, slays like an absolute motherf**ker. The Manticore is coming… Long live the filth!”
