The new album will be out on September 22nd via Nuclear Blast.
The extreme metal act Cradle Of Filth has just revealed that they will be releasing their twelfth studio album, entitled “Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness Of Decay”, on September 22nd via Nuclear Blast. The band also unveiled the cover artwork by Artūrs Bērziņš, best known for his unique neo-symbolism graphics and oil paintings, as well as postmodern interpretations of classic myths.
Dani Filth commented:
“The album is deeply infused with Victorian Gothic horror and thus the title is a reflection of that. ‘Cryptoriana’ implies the Victorian’s infatuation with the supernatural, the grave and the ghoulish. And the subtitle ‘The Seductiveness Of Decay’ further cements this attraction to death and the glittering lengthy process of self-annihilation.”
The first single off of Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness Of Decay will be released on July 5th, along with pre-order options.
“Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness Of Decay” was recorded at Grindstone Studios, Suffolk, U.K. by the very honorable Scott Atkins, who has been the resident go-to producer for Cradle Of Filth for several albums. Cradle Of Filth frontman Dani Filth sat in during the mix, serving up flaming mugs of teas, making the studio couch his own and lending his ears when necessary.
The band has also announced some tour dates. Once again, Dani Filth had a few words about this matter:
“We, as a band, are incredibly excited about hitting the U.K. and Ireland for a full run of dates around All Hallows Eve, as playing the band’s home country is always great fun and the audiences here are very receptive. And nuts. The dates will be the first in a long line of shows that will extend throughout the rest of the world throughout 2018. We aim to be very prolific on the live front, delivering a show worthy of our fans’ exalted expectations and more.”
