Former THEATRE OF TRAGEDY/current LEAVES' EYES vocalist Liv Kristine has recorded a guest appearance for the new CRADLE OF FILTH album, "Nymphetamine", due late September through Roadrunner Records. "We are now in the mixing stage of the 'Nymphetamine' session at Chapel studios, Linclonshire, UK," bassist Dave Pybus writes on the group's web site. "This is headed by Colin Richardson with the presence of Dan Turner and occasionally [producer] Rob [Caggiano]. The word on the street is this record sounds massive. So far we have six songs mixed down: 'Gilded C**t', 'Medusa and Hemlock', 'Gabrielle', 'Swansong for a Raven', 'Filthy Little Secret' and 'English Fire'.

"I personally got to hear these few mixes on our return from last weekends festivals in Budapest and Waldrock in Holland," Dave added. "We were away from home for quite some time actually due to all the traveling between shows. We are mixing in-between festivals, which can be quite chaotic. I must admit, the new stuff does sound like nothing we have done before. And yes, I know all bands say that about their new material, but this 'experiment' of us playing together in the studio has really started to pay off. OK, its slower, and a lot more hard work, but we are trying to capture something special with atmosphere which is somehow lost in all that digital editing found in modern recordings. It's very aggressive. Gives it the edge we were looking for. Totally in your face for the most part haha. Maybe, it will be like a year after this record is out that we truly realize how cool this album will be due to that process. Only time will tell. It's exciting, that's for sure."
