Cradle Of Filth – ‘Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa’

CRADLE OF FILTH have just launched a new mini-site ahead of their latest album’s release. There’s also a free download available at www.peaceville.com/cradleoffilth
www.myspace.com/cradleoffilth

‘Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa’, the latest chapter in Cradle Of Filth’s dark history, is to be released through Peaceville Records on the band’s own AbraCadaver imprint on November 1st 2010 but fans can get a preview of the album at the new ‘Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa’ mini-site which has just been launched at www.peaceville.com/cradleoffilth

The site will feature 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 will be updated on a weekly basis with video blogs, fan competitions, promo videos, an Iphone app, new downloads and more. From September 22nd we shall also be adding previews of a different track from the album every Wednesday.

‘Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa’ is the band’s ninth studio album and in the word’s 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. 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. 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 2008’s ‘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 Hallow’s 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.
