“The twelfth studio album from the UK’s most visionary and hellish outfit!” This is how Cradle Of Filth is promoting its new album called ‘Cryptoriana: The Seductiveness Of Decay’.
Release date: 22nd september 2017.
‘Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness of Decay’ is the eighth studio album by Cradle Of Filth.
“The twelfth studio album from the UK’s most visionary and hellish outfit”. This is how the gothic black metal band promotes its new album. It seems like ‘Cryptoriana’ already has amazing reviews from famous webzines: “Their best effort since ‘Cruelty and the Beast’!” (EMP), “SEX & DEATH UBER ALLES! England’s necromancers deliver a sensually jinxed record!” (Metal Hammer). There is practically nothing but Victorian fiction in the last Cradle of Filth‘s album. After ‘Nymphetamine’ (2004) and ‘Thornography’ (2006), ‘Cryptoriana’ is the new title to be added to their discography.
Dani Filth comments the album
“It’s the kind of thing Cradle does,” said Dani Filth, as he spoke about the name of the album, the leader and only survivor of the band’s original line-up. In addition, Dani said: “While writing the album, I read a lot of books, especially collections of phantom stories. And all the best ones dated from the late nineteenth century: E.F. Benson, H. Rider Haggard, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Robert Louis Stevenson…”
