Kings Of Extreme Metal

Posted on February 12, 2008

A most proper press release, for a most proper signing, Cradle Of Filth: Roadrunner Records Sign Kings of Extreme Metal CRADLE OF FILTH New York, NY – Roadrunner Records are proud to announce the signing of England’s notorious extreme metal outfit, CRADLE OF FILTH. The band, second-stage headliners of this year’s Ozzfest, and having just finished a tour in America supported by Type O Negative and Moonspell, are delighted by the recent turn of events. Dani Filth, the group’s often outspoken vocalist had this to say about the move – “Obviously everybody in the band is very excited about the decision to sign to the label. I believe Roadrunner will definitely give us a much further push and without doubt, better credibility within the extreme metal scene. Bring on 2004, the year destined to be spattered with Filth…” Roadrunner are equally thrilled, as A&R man, Mike Gitter states, “As all truly great bands do, Cradle of Filth provoke. That makes people draw a line. Cradle assault the senses: hitting both head and groin. Cradle of Filth are leaders rather than followers – often copied, never replicated. They have already left a bloody stain on the Encyclopedia Metallicus – Roadrunner and I are excited to help make the world a FILTHIER place.” CRADLE have already written enough material for their first album with Roadrunner (their sixth full length to date) and are due to begin recording in late January with a release date scheduled for early June. The album, tentatively titled ‘Nymphetamine’ (roughly translated as the druggish beast-like addiction to beautiful, classical women) will feature the following tracks (as of December ’03): Medusa And Hemlock Nemesis Prey Gilded Cunt Absinthe With Faust Painting Flowers White Never Suited My Palette Coffin Fodder Filthy Little Secret Gabrielle Swansong For A Raven CRADLE bassist, David Pubis, describes the new material as an “eclectic mix between the group’s ‘Damnation..’ and ‘Cruelty…’ albums with a renewed vigor for melody, songmanship and plain fucking weirdness spat into the smelting bowl. Revolting human worms, you have been warned!” Cradle Of Filth, welcome aboard…
