Everyone’s favorite over-the-top, dramatic, symphonic, black metallers, CRADLE OF FILTH, are back with their ninth studio album, Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa. Set for a November 9th release on Nuclear Blast Records, the album is said to be “the fastest and most brutal album we’ve created to date,” according to frontman Dani Filth. The album artwork (right) was finely crafted by Natalie Shau.
Dani continues to describe the album: “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.”
Okay… not particularly out-of-line with what we’ve come to expect from CRADLE OF FILTH (at least from a selling point).
