Over the next week Cradle of Filth will unleash a wave of decadence and debauchery upon their disciples of the dark arts. This carnival of chaos will begin with a webchat on Friday 8pm (Get involved here www.livestream.com/peaceville)and the release of a new album on Monday. The album entitled The Manticore & Other Horrors 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, Manticore being the ravening title track. It is a song about a beautiful mythological horror that comes to be feared as the disfigurehead of foreign occupation in the Indian provinces.
For now though please debase yourself by watching a typical torrent of bloodcurdling horror in this, their new video Frost on Her Pillow. Or see what I thought of their lead single here.
