CRADLE OF FILTH Launches “Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa” Mini-Site
ENGLAND – One of the most infamous and notorious names in metal, Cradle Of Filth, continue to shock, excite, disgust and inspire in equal measures. Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa, the latest chapter of the band’s dark history, is to be released through Nuclear Blast Records on November 9th, but fans can get a preview of the album at the new Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa mini-site, which is live now at: www.peaceville.com/cradleoffilth.
The mini-site features info about the album, a gallery of new band pics and elements from the album artwork, a link to download a MP3 of the track “Lilith Immaculate”, downloads and more. The site will be updated on a weekly basis with video blogs, fan competitions, promo videos, an iPhone app, new downloads and more. Previews of different tracks from the album will be added every Wednesday starting September 22nd.
Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa is the band’s ninth studio album, and in the words of Cradle’s infamous frontman, Dani Filth, is “without doubt the fastest and most brutal album we’ve created to date. As an acquaintance of the band so aptly noted, this is like ‘Iron Maiden on crack in a graveyard of angels!’”
“This album is Cradle at our most sinister and darkened fairytale,” continues Dani. “A gothic horror themed slay-ride of fervour and perversion; yet amidst the orchestral melodrama and lush, cinematic production, there sits stalwart a ravening beast of furious riffing, flesh ripping vocals and monstrous, unstoppable percussion.”
Whether through their wildly elaborate & theatrical live shows (which incorporate giant lumbering puppets, fire-breathing dancers, freaks and stilt-walkers), provocative merchandise (including the now legendary ‘Jesus Is A C***’ t-shirt), breathtaking artwork, or the weighty subject matter of their albums (their latest told the story of a French Lord who fought alongside Joan Of Arc before embarking on a horrific killing spree), this is a band whose uncompromising stance has been rewarded with legions of fans around the world, making them the most successful British heavy metal band since Iron Maiden.
