CRADLE OF FILTH Announce US Album Release Date

From their press release:

CRADLE OF FILTH have announced an October 30th North American release date for the band’s 10th studio album, The Manticore & Other Horrors, out just in time for Halloween courtesy of Nuclear Blast USA. European release date TBA shortly.

Commented the band’s infamous front man, Dani Filth, “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!”

Recorded in eight weeks at both Springvale and Grindstone studios (where it was also mixed by Scott Atkins), Suffolk, the album is a testament to the longevity of The 'Filth, as not only does it reek of Cradle's (feared or revered) brand of delicious metal vamperotica, but this thoroughly modern album places the band firmly in fresh killing fields anew.

The Manticore & Other Horrors itself possesses an altogether new atmosphere for the band, incorporating a heavier, faster NWOBBM punk vibe that is both current and cruel, blended with ornate orchestration and the quirky immediateness of 2000's Midian opus.

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. “Manticore,” the ravening title track, is a song about a beautiful mythological horror that comes to be feared as the disfigurehead of foreign occupation in the Indian provinces.

The songs “Illicitus” and “Pallid Reflection” bare the sweet ingredients of vampirism and lycanthropy; the wicked “For Your Vulgar Delectation” and “Frost On Her Pillow” are woven perversely into grim fairy tales, whilst classic, monumental tracks like “The Abhorrent and Siding With The Titans” both extol tentacular Lovecraftian values.

CRADLE OF FILTH will spread its darkness upon European lands with a tour throughout November and December.

Stay tuned for more information on Cradle Of Filth and The Manticore & Other Horrors.

Cradle Of Filth members:
Dani Filth - vocals
Paul Allender - guitar
James McIlroy - guitar
David Pybus - bass
Martin Skaroupka - drums

I thought the last album (Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa) was pretty good.

Godspeed on the Devil's Thunder was way better. Darkly was too cinematic with the orchestration. Hopefully this new album goes back to thier Midian/Nymphetamine writing style with the keys rather than over orchestrated film scores lol
