I mean, when was the last time you got AMPED for a fucking Cradle of Filth album. Can you even remember that far back? I can’t. I may safely say I have never waited in panty-wetting anticipation for a Cradle of Filth record. Nope — I never have. I just always get around to listening to new Cradle of Filth when I can, and find myself walking away from the experience shaking me head and grimacing in disgust.
But yes, Cradle of Filth have begun the songwriting process for the follow-up to last year’s Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa.
Dani Filth, extreme metal’s own Danzig (check here for reference), says that two song “(‘The Abhorrent’ and ‘Siding With The Titans’) [are] already past the demoing stage, with a third track snapping swiftly on their heels. I can reveal that they are sounding sonically, well, like Cradle of Filth, but in a very good way. But then again I would say that, wouldn’t I?”
“Whether it be true or not I think the songs thus far sound fab, very atmospheric but driving headlong, eerily cinematic and really memorable,” Dani continues.
“At the present we are looking at entering the studio around the third week in March 2012 with that ever-tentative release date of next All Hallow’s Eve to crawl eventually toward,” Filth concluded. “This would put the band firmly back out on the road towards the end of next year, possibly straight into the maw of Europe. There will be new things in the Cradle of Filth canon as we really try not to stagnate — well, not outside of our stage clothes anyway — but rest assured what has surfaced already is killer material indeed. And no, it’s not’s another fucking concept album!”
