This is the explicit cover artwork for “Mondoscuro”, the announced EP co-starring CADAVERIA and Necrodeath, both as distinct bands and as authors of new songs, composed and played together.
In detail, the EP will contain six tracks: two brand new and co-written songs, two covers (one of The Beatles and one of Type O Negative) and two unusual “exchange of roles”, that will see CADAVERIA reinterpreting a classic by Necrodeath and Necrodeath performing a CADAVERIA hit.
Among the other surprises of “Mondoscuro” there is the participation of Lindsay Schoolcraft from CRADLE OF FILTH, as special guest on vocals.
“Mondoscuro” cover artwork was designed by Italian-Venezuelan digital artist Paolo Perrotta Mazza.
The release of “Mondoscuro” on Black Tears of Death label is expected late this Summer.

Talking here about the violence in generally, and violence on stage, caused by a band or a band member, which occasionally and unfortunately also hits our Metal World….
We, at Metal Shock Finland, want to state that we highly detest these kind of isolated actions. It definitely is NOT the way Metal Family and its ideology is meant to be. And in saying this, we want to post yet another sad video about a futile violent incident on stage, completely without sense and reason… of how Dani Filth punched the face of a Russian fan on their recent tour in Russia. An absolute no-go!
After having worked with the band for several years in the United States already it is with great pleasure that Nuclear Blast Records can officially announce the worldwide signing of Great Britain’s most visionary, sickening and disturbing outfit: legendary CRADLE OF FILTH.
Iconic vocalist Dani Filth had this to say on the eminent subject… : “Nuclear Blast owner Markus Staiger has been trying to snare the band ever since I flew over to see him way back in 1996 as a viable label option, after we left Cacophonous records. He barely missed out due to the close proximity to the band of Music For Nations, the label that CRADLE stayed with until 2001. Now, not only do Nuclear Blast have offices all over the world, but the one in London is actually dead opposite to the old MFN building! Which is weird!
For the full frontal assault we have planned for the awesome new album, Nuclear Blast are the perfect war stallion to carry us screaming into the heart of the next chapter of COF’s dark, enigmatic history. Next year is going to be a massive year for the band and the black flags start flying here, with the announcement of our unholy union with Nuclear Blast who have already done great things with my Witch County band, DEVILMENT.”
CRADLE OF FILTH have just returned from their successful run through Russia and will hit the studio to begin recording the successor of 2012’s “The Manticore And Other Horrors” later this month.
Surf to this location to check out the collection of CRADLE OF FILTH‘s official music(k) videos and get yourself in a real morbid mood as you recall…
CRADLE OF FILTH is: Dani Filth – vocals Martin Skaroupka – drums Daniel Firth – bass Richard Shaw – guitar Ashok – guitar Lindsay Schoolcraft – keys, female vocals
Guitarist PAUL ALLENDER (ex-Cradle Of Filth) has caused significant interest and a media storm with his latest creation WHITE EMPRESS. Just recently he was revealed to be the Mastermind of this completely new and different Music-concept, which has all the right ingredients to become an endless and unbounded saga. As a taster for the fans of what is to come, recently WHITE EMPRESS released a four track EP “Obsession With The Empress”, to have some idea, go and listen to it here.
Just a couple of days ago Tarja Virmakari had an interesting chat with Paul, where he revealed many compelling details about what WHITE EMPRESS and Her Royal Court are about to announce and release. Paul also commented on and clarified a recent article in another metal-mag, claiming his departure from Cradle Of Filth, which handled it from an incorrect perspective. To hear what Paul has to say about it and WHITE EMPRESS, join the conversation below.
Decibel Magazine is currently streaming “Total Fucking Darkness,” the third demo from UK extreme metal miscreants, CRADLE OF FILTH, in its entirety!
Dubbed “a face-ripping kick in the ass,” by Metal Injection, “the rawest version of the band you are going to find,” by Stereokiller and praised for being, “as effective today as it was back when it was written,” by New Noise, the grim revival of Total Fucking Darkness was directed by vocalist Dani Filth, former guitarist Paul Ryan (currently of The King Is Blind) and Cacophonous Records founder, Frater Nihil, who first signed CRADLE OF FILTH, in an effort to bring fans old and new a remastered version of the now-iconic release along with material that had been sitting in the vaults for twenty years. Given new life at Turan Studio in Oxford with the assistance of engineer Tim Turan, “Total Fucking Darkness” comes available as a digipak CD and double gatefold LP via Mordgrimm.
In honor of its release, Decibel Magazine is streaming the CD edition of “Total Fucking Darkness” in full alongside an interview with Dani Filth who talks in-depth about his earliest COF memories, vampires, family life, the infamous “Jesus Is A Cunt” shirt and more.
