CRADLE OF FILTH performed its new song "Forgive Me Father (I Have Sinned)" earlier this month on Germany's MTV. You can now watch video footage of their playback appearance below.
CRADLE OF FILTH will embark on its first North American tour since 2009, a headlining run dubbed "FEARnet and Decibel Presents: Creatures From The Black Abyss Tour", in February 2011. Support on the trek will come from NACHTMYSTIUM, TURISAS and DANIEL LIONEYE.
The special fan edition of CRADLE OF FILTH's new album, "Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa", is only available at this location and will be strictly limited; once they sell out they will never be re-pressed.
As vocalist Dani Filth stated, this is "the best CRADLE OF FILTH release that we have ever created, the ultimate version of our ultimate album. For you, our loyal mortal appreciators."
"Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa" was released on November 1 through Peaceville Records on the band's own AbraCadaver imprint (November 9 in North America via Nuclear Blast Records).
"Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa" is, in the words of Dani Filth, "without doubt the fastest and most brutal album we've created to date. As an acquaintance of the band so aptly noted, this is like 'IRON MAIDEN on crack in a graveyard of angels!' This album is CRADLE at our most sinister and darkened fairytale," continues Dani. "A gothic horror themed slay-ride of fervour and perversion; yet amidst the orchestral melodrama and lush, cinematic production, there sits stalwart a ravening beast of furious riffing, flesh ripping vocals and monstrous, unstoppable percussion."
