British extreme metallers CRADLE OF FILTH recently entered Grindstone Studios in Suffolk, England with producer Scott Atkins (SYLOSIS, GAMA BOMB) to begin recording their tenth album for a fall release.
A two-minute video clip of the drum-recording sessions can be seen below.
CRADLE OF FILTH vocalist, Dani “Filth” Davey recently stated about the band’s new material, “I would personally liken it to a hubbub of CRADLE through the years but with a fresh energetic streak racing prominently throughout… it’s fast, innovative, melodic, brutal and utterly uncompromising, VERY cinematic (there is a noticeable rise of the orchestral thanks to Martin [Skaroupka, drums] who has been working alongside Paul‘s [Allender, guitar] feverous songwriting both on these and the drum tracks, which are astonishing to say the least…), romantic, necromantic, angry and reflective. Fuck me, it’s a new CRADLE OF FILTH album, and a really bloody good one at that, if the demos alone are taken as a foretaste of the thunderstorm to come.”
He continued, “The album itself is not a concept album this time around (you think you’re sighing with relief!), but a bestiary of songs all revolving around a chimerical theme. Titles thus far include the following… ‘Siding With The Titans’, ‘The Abhorrent’, ‘Illicitus’, ‘Frost On Her Pillow’, ‘For Your Vulgar Delectation’, ‘Death, The Great Adventure’, ‘Manticore’, ‘The Unveiling Of O’, ‘Pallid Reflection’ and ‘Huge Onyx Wings Behind Despair’.”
“Midnight In The Labyrinth”, an orchestral album which reinvents tracks from CRADLE OF FILTH‘s first four albums and includes choirs, strings and some narration, was released on Record Store Day (April 21) in participating countries and as a strictly limited-edition two-disc set of delectable magic in the rest of the world.
