In his most recent blog, which can be read in its entirety at this location, COF frontman Dani Filth stated, “I can truly say that The Manticore and Other Horrors sounds fucking awesome, a real noticeable twist in tone but all the better for it. It’s ornate, taut, punk and aggressive but very much the neo-classical whore of yore, spitting raw bloody fury through the maw of the majestic. But I would say that, I’ve had a firm hand in it’s oily whelping!
That’s right. Breakneck Gothic Lustmord razor metal with a hint of the willies.
Something that surpasses our previous two albums with nary a blink for forgiveness. Something that has the true pumping blood of Cradle at it’s indelible helm. Something truly wicked.”
