Yep. Just when you were getting sick of Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa and wearing that motherfucker down to the thickness of a nearly-translucent slice of ham comes word of new Filth on the horizon.
The British extreme metal outfit will return to the studio in December to resume work on an orchestral album titled Midnight In The Labyrinth. Hmm…so, that’s cool, I guess. I know Bam Margera’s plenty psyched. And, like, this pack of goth kids I always see at my mall who always look like they’re about to start sobbing. Black tights should not be worn on scrawny arms, they should be worn on the legs of luscious females. But I digress.
According to Dani Filth, Cradle of Filth’s frontman, the band will “reinvent” tracks from the band’s first four albums and include “full soundtrack-quality stuff…with choirs, strings and some narration.” Hmm. They’ll hit the studio on December 5.
Online, Filth updated fans saying that when the band gets back in the studio, that’s when “big choirs [will] be added to the haunting melee. All songs will be fully orchestrated akin to a horror movie soundtrack (think Danny Elfman, John Williams, Christopher Young, etc.) and are comprised solely of tracks from our first four releases.”
Of course, Cradle of Filth will be hitting the road in February on the “Creatures From The Black Abyss Tour,” presented by Decibel. Also on that run will be Nachtmystium, Turisas, and Daniel Lioneye. Word. You can find dates for that tour here.
