As previously reported, a brand new CRADLE OF FILTH track, entitled "Foetus of a New Day Kicking", has been posted online at this location. The song comes off "Thornography", which is scheduled for release in the U.S. on October 17 via Roadrunner Records. An e-card for the CD can be accessed here. Another full-length track from the CD, entitled "Dirge Inferno", is available for streaming at this location.

The follow-up to 2004's "Nymphetamine", "Thornography" was recorded at Lincolnshire, England's Chapel studios with producer Rob Caggiano (BLEEDING THROUGH, ANTHRAX) and was mixed at Backstage Studios in Derbyshire, England by Andy Sneap (MACHINE HEAD, SKINLAB, NEVERMORE). The narraration for "Thornography" was once again laid down by Doug Bradley (a.k.a. "Hellraiser"'s chief Cenobite, Pinhead), who has previously worked with the group on "Her Ghost in the Fog" and "Swansong for a Raven".

Speaking to about the new CD, CRADLE OF FILTH frontman Dani "Filth" Davey said, "'Thornography' implies a self-hurt. Mankind's will to hurt God. It's like being an alcoholic and knowing you're not supposed to drink but you enjoy it so much so you do it anyway. Everything on the record has got a religious edge to it in a good or bad way. And it's not overtly satanic because sometimes you find that the darker stuff in life exists within the people who wield the power, who are supposedly in the light."
