Extreme metal antagonists CRADLE OF FILTH have begun work on the follow-up to 2012’s ‘The Manticore and Other Horrors’, with the hope of a release this time next year in 2015. Vocalist Dani Filth had this to say on the subject:
‘Fired up from the recent spate of shows in Europe with co-headliners Behemoth, the band have decided to forego the year away from writing, and leap back into the fray with vigour anew.
The crux of three songs have already been broached and I can say the material is comparable to that of Dusk, Cruelty and Midian, albeit with a fresher sound. I can’t define it exactly as it incorporates a wide variety of styles and dark emotions as one would come to expect from a Cradle record. One thing is certain though, this next release is going to be pushing the boundaries of what the band can achieve, and with forthcoming live shows peppering the writing process, I know this album is going to be fuelled by 101% metal fury!‘
In the meantime, the band’s legendary demo is given the re-mastered, re-release treatment via Mordgrimm records, featuring lots of rare bonus material to boot.
‘Total Fucking Darkness‘ will be unleashed upon the simpering flock on 5th May, with a four page retrospective being run within the pages of the current Metal Hammer magazine.
