Hot on the heels of the critically acclaimed Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa, extreme metal crew Cradle Of Filth are back with a brand new CD/DVD.
And the package offers something for everyone with new songs plus live and remixed versions of old favourites.
Dani Filth beat East Anglian icons including the late Sir Bobby Robson in a public poll to honour Suffolk’s most influential individual, group or building.
But now he’s back to being a metal icon with the promise of live shows to come.
“It is a much-loved musical stop-gap between albums,” said Filth. “It’s a pleasure treasure trove of wild and wicked wonders primed especially for fans.
“Something for them to sink their teeth into this Autumn as the Cradle invasion fleet is primed for future contagion….”
Evermore Darkly‘s DVD features a lengthy on-the-road documentary and 10 songs filmed live at this year’s Graspop metal meet – as well as the video for Lilith Immaculate.
The CD features brand new musical beast Thank Your Lucky Stars plus a special remix of Forgive Me Father, courtesy of Rob C from Anthrax.
It boasts an extended rendition of Lilith Immaculate, as well as tempered demo versions of three Darkly, Darkly… songs.
The mini-album closes with a special taster from Cradle of Filth’s impending orchestral project, in the form of a haunting, classic reworking of fan-favourite, Summer Dying Fast.
The ‘Evermore Darkly’ DVD contains footage from Summer 2011, when Cradle of Filth embarked on a rapid spate of tours, accompanied by two eager filmmakers. The resulting documentary, You Can’t Polish A Turd, But You Can Roll It In Glitter, combined with performance and interview footage culminates in a 45 minute film of the not so glamorous reality of life in a touring band at work and play, as they trawl their way across Europe over eight performances.
The DVD includes an interview with ghoul-guide Dani Filth, interspersed and peppered with live footage and backstage shenanigans, culminating in the entire hour-long set from this year’s highly anticipated Graspop festival appearance.
Look out for your latest load of Filth from October 17.
