As previously reported, UK extreme Metal act Cradle of Filth, has announced an October 30th North American release date for the band’s 10th studio album, 'The Manticore & Other Horrors', out just in time for Halloween courtesy of Nuclear Blast Records.
Recorded in eight weeks at both Springvale and Grindstone studios
(where it was also mixed by Scott Atkins), Suffolk, the album is a
testament to the longevity of The 'Filth, as not only does it reek of
Cradle's (feared or revered) brand of delicious metal vamperotica, but
this thoroughly modern album places the band firmly in fresh killing
'The Manticore & Other Horrors' itself
possesses an altogether new atmosphere for the band, incorporating a
heavier, faster NWOBBM Punk vibe that is both current and cruel, blended
with ornate orchestration and the quirky immediateness of 2000's
The album’s title can be likened to a
bestiary, a collection of stories on monsters - personal demons,
Chimeras, literary fiends and world-enslaving entities to blame but a
few. “Manticore,” the ravening title track, is a song about a beautiful
mythological horror that comes to be feared as the disfigurehead of
foreign occupation in the Indian provinces.
“Illicitus” and “Pallid Reflection” bare the sweet ingredients of
vampirism and lycanthropy; the wicked “For Your Vulgar Delectation” and
“Frost On Her Pillow” are woven perversely into grim fairy tales, whilst
classic, monumental tracks like “The Abhorrent and Siding With The
Titans” both extol tentacular Lovecraftian values.
Cradle of Filth will spread its darkness upon European lands with a tour throughout November and December.
