New Stuff


  • Axl Rosenberg

So there’s a new Cradle of Filth song, “Lilith Immaculate,”and we got a bunch of reader e-mails about it hours (and in one case days) BEFORE we got a press release. So three cheers for COF’s fanatical followers knowing about it every time Dani Filth farts, regardless of whether or not the media tells them how it smelled.

ANYWAY, the song. You can download it by signing up for the COF mailing list, or you can just listen below. It sounds like Cradle of Filth to me. I’m not a huge fan, and the one time I saw the band live, it was pretty much the most awful thing ever… but every now and then they churns out a pop-black metal tune that gets stuck in my noggin. (Like that song “Nymphetamine.” That’s a guilty pleasure if ever there was one.) And I do think that Dani Filth is a really, really smart guy with a vision who has worked very hard for his success. One might not like that vision, which is fine… but the dude has gotten as far as he has for a reason, y’know?

Cradle of Filth’s new album, Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa, comes out November 9 on Nuclear Blast. Everyone who didn’t e-mail us should talk about how much they hate this band in the comments section, and then everyone who did e-mail us should defend them.
