ENGLAND – Cradle of Filth has just launched a lyric video for the new track, “For Your Vulgar Delectation,” seen above. The song comes from the UK outfit’s impending 10th studio album, The Manticore and Other Horrors, which is slated to be released in North America on October 30th via Nuclear Blast.
Fans can pre-order The Manticore and Other Horrors as a standard or deluxe edition CD or CD/deluxe edition plus T-shirt bundle package today via the Nuclear Blast webstore.
Recorded in eight weeks at both Springvale and Grindstone studios in Suffolk, UK (where it was also mixed by Scott Atkins), the album is a testament to the longevity of The ‘Filth, as not only does it reek of Cradle’s (feared or revered) brand of delicious metal vamperotica, but this thoroughly modern album places the band firmly in fresh killing fields.
The Manticore and Other Horrors itself possesses an altogether new atmosphere for the band, incorporating a heavier, faster NWOBBM punk vibe that is both current and cruel, blended with ornate orchestration and the quirky immediateness of 2000′s Midian opus.
The album’s title can be likened to a bestiary, a collection of stories on monsters – personal demons, Chimeras, literary fiends, and world-enslaving entities to blame but a few.
Artwork for the impending release comes courtesy of Matthew Vickerstaff of Darkwaveart.
Commented Dani Filth:
“This is our 10th commandment in metal. We have diversified and kept alive the spirit of this band and breathed it into something that I can proudly say slays like an absolute motherfucker. The Manticore is coming… Long live the Filth!”
Cradle of Filth will spread its darkness upon European lands with a tour throughout November and December.
