Cradle Of Filth To Release New Album “Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness Of Decay” In September

Cradle Of Filth have announced that their new album “Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness Of Decay” will be released on September 22. The cover art for the effort, which was created by Arturs Berzinš, can be seen below:

Dani Filth said the following:

“The album is deeply infused with Victorian gothic horror and thus the title is a reflection of that. ‘Cryptoriana’ implies the Victorian’s infatuation with the supernatural, the grave and the ghoulish. And the subtitle ‘The Seductiveness Of Decay’ further cements this attraction to death and the glittering lengthy process of self-annihilation.”

The first single and preorders will be available on July 5. In other news, the band have also announced a UK/Ireland tour:

10/30 Belfast, IRE – Limelight
10/31 Dublin, IRE – Academy (Halloween Show)
11/02 Manchester, UK – Academy 2
11/03 Glasgow, UK – Garage
11/04 Birmingham, UK – O2 Institute 2
11/05 Leeds, UK – Church
11/07 Oxford, UK – O2 Academy
11/08 Southampton, UK – Engine Rooms
11/09 Norwich, UK – Waterfront
11/10 London, UK – Electric Ballroom
11/11 Bristol, UK – Bierkeller

Dani Filth On Next Cradle Of Filth Album: “It’s A Cross Between ‘Hammer Of The Witches’ And ‘Cruelty And The Beast'”

Dani Filth was recently interviewed by Metal Forces about his band Devilment. During the talk, he also offered a little bit about Cradle Of Filth’s new album, which he says will sound like “a cross between ‘Hammer Of The Witches’ and ‘Cruelty And The Beast’.”

Filth said the following:

“From what I do know, it’s a cross between ‘Hammer Of The Witches’ [2015] and ‘Cruelty And The Beast’ [1998]. It’s very melodic, very fast… Well, it’s not all fast. There’s some big, heavy tracks on there. Very ornate. There’s some great fucking riffs on there, amazing. Yeah, can’t really speak much about Cradle. Obviously, it’s not a Cradle interview. That will come in time.”

The effort will be released in September 2017. Filth added the following about that:

“It’s gonna be delivered the second week of May, and the reason for… I mean, it’s not being pushed out or anything like that. Whatever we release, it’s usually about two years afterwards. I think it’s just the fact that I’ve got another band makes it look like it turns around quite quickly, but it has to be released in September because of new management planning this big world tour which has to start in America on a certain date. So, the album has to be delivered and released… It all has to fall into a certain place. You can’t just go ‘Oh, we missed our deadline. Sorry,’ because otherwise, you miss your slot with releasing and with the record company, and everything they’ve got planned. So yeah, we’re free to do what we want for a certain amount of months, but then it all has to fit into a schedule.”

Concert Review: Cradle Of Filth, Butcher Babies, & Ne Obliviscaris In San Francisco, CA

Last night (February 21), I attended the Cradle Of Filth, Butcher Babies, and Ne Obliviscaris show at the Fillmore in San Francisco, CA, and it was a hell of a show.

12122612_1068918619820221_2740471755112666918_n

Ne Obliviscaris opened the show, and they put on a cool performance. This was the Australian metal band’s first North American tour, and they definitely left a lasting impression. They had a unique heavy sound that also incorporated a violin for a symphonic feel.  A highlight from their set was their performance of “And Plague Flowers the Kaleidoscope.”

Butcher Babies took the stage next, and were perhaps the strongest act of the night. Frontwomen Heidi Shepherd, and Carla Harvey were energetic and performed at top form. Shepherd even sang in the middle of the pit at one point. Their set was heavily weighted in tracks from their latest release, “Take It Like A Man,” with some tracks from “Goliath,” and their self-titled EP thrown in for good measure. Highlights from their set include: “Axewound,” “Igniter,” “The Butcher,” and a “Goliath” medley featuring bits of the title track, “The Deathsurround,” and “I Smell A Massacre.”

Then it was time for the headliners of the night, Cradle Of Filth. The band came out one by one as the “Humana Inspired to Nightmare” intro played in the background. Frontman Dani Filth was the last to walk out, and as soon as he walked up to the microphone, he let out his banshee like scream to signal the beginning of “Heaven Torn Asunder.” From their the band performed for about an hour, and then returned for an encore, which was practically another full set. The band was on point all night, proving that the latest incarnation of the band is one of the best lineups in their history. Keyboardist, Lindsay Schoolcraft was especially impressive when she sang vocals on songs like “Nymphetamine (Fix).” All in all they put on a good show full of tracks from their latest album “Hammer Of The Witches,” mixed with others spanning their whole career. Some highlights from their performance included: “Her Ghost In The Fog,” Blackest Magick in Practice,” and “The Principle of Evil Made Flesh.”

Cradle Of Filth Have Resolved Their Visa Issues & Are On Their Way To Kickoff Their North American Tour

After previously cancelling the first four shows of their North American tour, Cradle Of Filth have resolved their visa issues, and are cleared to begin the trek on January 31. You can read more about that in the below Instagram post:

CRADLE OF FILTH ARE ON THEIR WAY TO SEE ALL THEIR US FANS!! The band will be flying out Saturday to begin the tour in Charlotte Sun 31st Jan. CRADLE OF FILTH would like once again apologise to everyone who were intending to see the band at the four cancelled shows this week in the U.S. The cancellation, ironically, was mainly down to the slow return of Dani's visa from the American Embassy in London, rather than the brutal weather. Dani has now received his visa after an agonising wait. We're utterly utterly sorry for the cancellations, but it has been something that has been totally out of the band's hands. We can only hope that the rest of the tour will be as amazing as planned. Thanks once again for your understanding and see you out on the road! #Cradleoffilth #US #canada #inquisitionaltourture #danifilth
