CRADLE OF FILTH have begun writing material for a new studio record!
Work has begun on the follow up to 2015’s Hammer of the Witches with the band spending the last week in a studio in Brno, Czech Republic. Speaking in regards to the news, frontman Dani Filth says, “As a band we are very much looking forward to our writing session in Brno. It’s going to be very inspirational to just bury ourselves away in a rehearsal room in the Czech Republic and knead our ammunition of razor sharp flesh-ripping sonic torments into sinister form. Hopefully when we emerge from our musical chrysalis one week later, something beautiful will be born. The new CRADLE OF FILTH album will be mostly written. Then will come the long Autumnal evenings bringing the monster further to life by dressing it in lyricism. I can hardly wait!”
Filth continues, “There are certainly a few songs completed already, though these will undoubtedly be scrutinised thoroughly when we hit the rehearsal studio. It’ll just be awesome to play through it all creatively in the rehearsal room. We can reveal that there is one song carried over from the previous album, a veritable lament entitled Achingly Beautiful. We’ve worked some more on it, fleshing it out considerably. It is very old school CRADLE OF FILTH, featuring a haunting middle section full of soaring female vocals and choir very akin to A Gothic Romance from the album ‘Dusk… and Her Embrace. It may not even make this album’s grade in the end, as we’re being extremely thorough with quality control, but it’s definitely something that is being delivered to the proverbial butcher’s block from the off.”
Whilst we cannot bring any information in regards to an album name, artwork or a single, keep tuned to Distorted Sound as we hear more from the band in the coming months.
