British extreme metallers CRADLE OF FILTH performed their new song "Forgive Me Father (I Have Sinned)" earlier this week 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."
The fan edition comes packaged in a deluxe box containing:
* 2 CDs : the album plus disc of bonus tracks (including "Adest Rosa Secreta Eros", an exclusive track that will not be available on any other edition of the album).
* 1 DVD : the promo video for "Forgive Me Father (I Have Sinned)", plus a documentary on the making of the video.
* A 64-page hard-back book containing band photos, musings and artwork.
* An exclusive t-shirt.
* A lenticular 3D version of the album cover art ready for framing.
* Photographic prints.

The band are still putting the final touches to the designs for all of the box's contents. These will be revealed soon.

"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."
