FILTHY UPDATE

Posted on February 12, 2008

Cradle Of Filth are currently recording their seventh LP at Lincolnshire, England’s Chapel Studios for an early June 2006 release. The group’s frontman Dani Filth told MTV.com that when the group’s new disc arrives in stores, fans will hear two very interesting covers the FILTH’s been perfecting: U.K. techno-pop trio HEAVEN 17’s “Temptation” and “Stay” by SHAKESPEAR’S SISTER. “We picked those because they are interesting,” Filth said. “It’s going to be a challenge, and that’s the whole point. If you’re going to do something, don’t just do it for the sake of doing it. It has to be something you can make your own.” The band’s reunited with Rob Caggiano (BLEEDING THROUGH, ANTHRAX), who produced 2004’s “Nymphetamine” and 2003’s “Damnation and a Day”, and at this point in the process, Filth said “all the drum and bass tracks are pretty much done, and I’ve already started recording vocals.” The FILTH will work on the album until the end of the month before breaking for a two-week U.K. tour they’ll reconvene on the sessions in mid-January. The album, he said, will end up containing about 10 tracks, including “Libertina Grim”, “Lovesick for Mina”, “The Byronic Man” and “Cemetery and Sundown”. “This record heightens our rhythm, and there are lots of cool off-beats. It’s just as meandering as much of our stuff, but there are also some really catchy tracks there,” Filth told MTV.com. “I’ve introduced more sing-y type parts. It’s a bigger, better-sounding CRADLE OF FILTH, and more direct and to the point.”
