Cradle Of Filth

'The Manticore & other Horrors' announced for Hallowe'en release

UK extreme metallers Cradle of Filth are set to release their new masterwork ‘The Manticore & other Horrors’ this Hallowe’en on Peaceville Records.

The title of this, Cradle Of Filth's tenth studio full-length, can be likened to a bestiary, a collection of stories on Monsters; personal demons, Chimeras, literary fiends and world-enslaving entities to blame but a few, Manticore being the ravening title track. It is a song about a beautiful mythological horror that comes to be feared as the disfigurehead of foreign occupation in the Indian provinces.

The songs Illicitus and Pallid Reflection bare the sweet ingredients of vampirism and lycanthropy; the wicked For Your Vulgar Delectation and Frost On her Pillow are woven perversely into grim fairytales, whilst classic, monumental tracks like The Abhorrent and Siding With The Titans both extol tentacular Lovecraftian values.

My Dying Bride

'A Map of all our Failures' coming October

It has been revealed that UK doom heroes My Dying Bride will entitle their forthcoming opus ‘A Map of all our Failures’. It will be released October 15th (USA October 16th) on Peaceville Records on CD, double vinyl & special edition CD/DVD. The album recording & mix was recently completed at Futureworks Studios in Manchester UK, with long-standing production maestro Mags at the helm.

A step up from 2009’s ‘For Lies I Sire’ - which set & subsequently met new heights of expectation placed upon the legendary Yorkshire doom troupe - ‘A Map of all our Failures’ is a further voyage into the darkest depths of humanity, religion, folklore, love & death. My Dying Bride’s distinctively sumptuous dual guitar melodies effortlessly flood into juggernaut doom metal riffs, with the vocals of Aaron Stainthorpe weaving a rich tapestry of tragic tales into the accompanying soundscapes. ‘A Map of all our Failures’ is perhaps best & most effectively summarised by guitarist Andrew Craighan, who describes the album as “a controlled demolition of all your hopes”.

The tracklisting is as follows:

1, Kneel till Doomsday
2, The Poorest Waltz
3, A Tapestry Scorned
4, Like A Perpetual Funeral
5, A Map of all our Failures
6, Hail Odysseus
7, Within The Presence of Absence
8, Abandoned As Christ

My Dying Bride has been the leading force in the death - doom metal genre since their inception in the early 90’s and have gone on to forge a legacy of greatness in the field over the past 2 decades.


The band will also be embarking upon a European tour in December in support of the album, as well as a local appearance at the UK’s esteemed Damnation Festival in November, at which Peaceville will be a proud sponsor to coincide with the label’s 25th anniversary.
