CRADLE OF FILTH “have now fully entered the mixing stage of their latest musical whors d’oeuvres entitled Hammer Of The Witches, having just finished filming a video for the album track ‘Right Wing Of The Garden Triptych’ over a long weekend at a former U.S. Airbase in Suffolk (see still below).
The album -out via Nuclear Blast in the Summer- is inspired by the 1486 treatise on the prosecution of witches by Heinrich Kramer and subtitled ‘Goetic Justice‘, as the theme is one of violent revenge for violent persecution.The album (fingers crossed and hopefully not by torture) will be delivered up to the proper authorities on April 20th. You have been warned.”
CRADLE OF FILTH‘s tenth studio album, “The Manticore And Other Horrors”, sold 4,500 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 96 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band’s previous full-length effort, “Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa”, opened with 5,800 units in November 2010 to land at No. 99.
