“Midnight In The Labyrinth” is the latest, inspired work, from British extreme metallers CRADLE OF FILTH, traversing an ethereal cinematic landscape of classical and symphonic darkness; a style the band has always woven seamlessly into their compositions.
Taking the most requested tracks from the first four official releases, CRADLE OF FILTH have fulfilled audience desire by creating an album based on their most popular older tracks, but one that is delivered orchestrally to create a rich, haunting sonic landscape in the vein of soundtrack composers such as Jerry Goldsmith, Danny Elfman and Hans Zimmer.
Ten songs make up this 78-minute meisterwerk (including the addition of a thirteen-minute exclusive aural séance on CD1), indulging such CRADLE OF FILTH classics as “Funeral In Carpathia”, “The Twisted Nails Of Faith” and “Summer Dying Fast”, which has already been showcased on last year’s “Evermore Darkly” EP to a more than rapturous audience response.
“Midnight In The Labyrinth” is available to coincide with Record Store Day on April 21 in participating countries, and sees a general release across other countries, as a strictly limited edition two-disc set of delectable magic, with disc 1 containing narrated nightmares courtesy of Dani Filth, plus additional vocals from Sarah Jezebel Deva, whilst disc 2 contains purely orchestral and symphonic recordings.
And if that’s not enough to wet your filthy appetite, CRADLE OF FILTH will return this Halloween with their new studio album!
