A dark shadow grows on the land once more. Cradle of Filth spreads its leathery wings and heads to the hinterlands once again to begin recording of its Roadrunner debut, Nymphetamine. With producer (and Anthrax guitarist) Rob Caggiano heading here to the UK this weekend, the horror that COF has spent months laboring over will finally take shape. Early listens to the violent vignettes penned by the esteemed members of The Cradle reveal a band hellbent….but then again, with COF, when haven’t they been heading in that infernal direction? Ironic isn’t it, that the first day on studio mayhem is Friday the 13th? Then again, the next day is St Valentine’s day…something grimly fiendish in that, don’tcha think?
