The UK’s most exuberant metallers, CRADLE OF FILTH, have signed a deal with Roadrunner Records. Having just rocked North America alongside Roadrunner’s TYPE O NEGATIVE, frontman Dani Filth commented on the signing: “Obviously everybody in the band is very excited about the decision to sign to the label. I believe Roadrunner will definitely give us a much further push and without doubt, better credibility within the extreme metal scene. Bring on 2004, the year destined to be spattered with Filth…”
CRADLE OF FILTH are set to enter the studio in January to begin recording their Roadrunner debut tentatively titled Nymphetamine. The band have already concocted 10 new tracks for the forthcoming endeavor. Here are some songtitles:
“Medusa And Hemlock”
“Absinthe With Faust”
“Painting Flowers White Never Suited My Palette”
“Filthy Little Secret”
“Swansong For A Raven”
Bassist David Pubis described the new material as an “eclectic mix between the group’s Damnation and a Day and Cruelty and the Beast albums with a renewed vigor for melody, songmanship and plain fucking weirdness spat into the smelting bowl.” Expect at June 2004 release.
