UK’s legendary extreme metal icons CRADLE OF FILTH have released the second single off their eagerly awaited 12th album, Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness Of Decay.

Commented singer Dani Filth: “This track is one of my favourite songs from the new ‘Cryptoriana’ album – aside from ‘Achingly Beautiful’, ‘Death And The Maiden’ and the title track- due to its very unique flavour and its vehement brutality. The culminative strike is especially very ‘Dusk… and Her Embrace’ era Black Metal…
Inspired by the works of H. Rider Haggard, a Victorian author who schooled in my home town of Ipswich, this song uses the railroad annexation of the Transvaal in Africa during the 19th century to paint a vision of the greedy machinations of man coming up against a furious, displaced natural foe, thus posing an allegory for the downtrodden, revolting.
I also have the latin of this expression tattooed on my arm (due to being the usual supercilious Leo!).
The quote was made famous having been said in 1697 by Johann Bernoulli about Isaac Newton’s anonymously submitted solution to Bernoulli’s challenge regarding the Brachistochrone curve.
So… Enjoy. Indulge. Desire. Darken.”

If you like your metal conceptually subtle but otherwise pretty much not subtle at all in any way, chances are you probably are a big Cradle fan. The UK’s favorite mischief makers summon the darkness once more with new album Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness Of Decay. Their 12th offering in a long and storied career, it is surely one of the more anticipated records for the metal scene of 2017. September 22 is the official release date, giving you a full month to learn the lyrics before Halloween. Watch the video below to see Dani looking kind of like a Goblin King/evil deer hybrid in a snowy realm with the band and a pile of I think naked virgins? The production value all around is great and I love the melodic choral style vocals over the blackened speed charnal shred and Filth’s shrieks.

Ex-Cradle Of Filth guitarist Paul Allender has returned to focus full time on White Empress, a symphonic band featuring ex- Coal Chamber and Luna Mortis members (to name drop just two more past bands of members). This, however, is a new beginning. Already creating a storm of fan excitement, the visually striking and musically arresting fury of the group is spreading like a blizzard to blanket the Earth.

We checked in with Paul to find out how he writes those kick ass riffs that made Cradle fans go crazy for so many years, the band’s Pledge music campaign and what goes on in the new frontiers charted by White Empress. Click HERE to read more!

Cradle of Filth guitarist to undergo surgery

Posted by tyrusrunyan on Friday, March 14, 2014 at 3:22 PM (PST)

Cradle_of_Filth_logo“Extreme metal band” Cradle of Filth’s guitarist James Mcllory will undergo back surgery to alleviate chronic back pain.

The band has issued the following statement:

Tomorrow, March the fifteenth, James Mcilroy, guitar hairwolf, will be having the delicate operation to repair his spine carried out, the very same shit that has kept him absent from the recent tour of Europe, and caused him so much pain over playing the last few years.

Pressed, though obviously not too heavily, on the subject, James had this to say when he emailed me this evening with the news…

“I am going into hospital today as they’ve graciously decided to give me a bed, and will be going into surgery tomorrow late morning or early afternoon. Operation lasts about 3-5 hours, and I should be back among the living on Sunday.

“It kind of goes something like this.

“All the support, and well wishes from across the world, the band and crewdle has been amazing, and I couldn’t wish for more support in my quest to obtain a similar 360 degree head movement of an owl (if you’re going to get part of your neck replaced, you may as well upgrade)! After this, I’ll also technically be more metal…

“Thanks to everyone, and see you on the other side, ready to fucking rock!” 

I hope you all can join with the band in wishing him well in advance of the operation and in a speedy recovery. We miss the lashing windmills!!!

Lyle Cooper leaves The Faceless

Posted by jessepac on Wednesday, January 23, 2013 at 9:47 PM (PST)

Lyle Cooper The FacelessThe Faceless are now drumless, as sticksmith Lyle Cooper has announced his departure. The band is currently playing a small United Kingdom tour and will hopefully find a replacement before their slot on the upcoming Cradle of Filth, Decapitated, and The Agonist run in the United States.

Here is what Cooper had to say about the situation:

“Over the last couple of years it seemed that the interests, goals and musical approach of the band was not that of my own. Also, managerial issues became too frequent with no resolution. These issues, I felt, made it hard for me as an individual to produce as a creative and enthusiastic member.”

The band is still touring in support of Autotheism, which came out last year on Sumerian Records.

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!”
