One of the most infamous and notorious names in metal, Cradle Of Filth
continue to shock, excite, Disgust and inspire in equal measures. On
November 1st 2010, the latest chapter of the band’s dark history is to
be released through Peaceville Records  on the band’s own AbraCadaver
imprint. Titled ‘Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa’ their ninth studio album
is, in the word’s of Cradle’s infamous frontman Dani Filth “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

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.

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. “Long live the ‘Filth!”
