Cradle of Filth Make Tea Now
Somehow, corpse painted soap is only the second-strangest piece of black metal-themed merch to appear on our radar today.
The strangest? Cradle of Filth branded tea.
Seriously. Not making this shit up.
Says the band in a tea-pun-filled statement:
“If anything this weird space of time known as ‘lockdown’ has taught us, is that literally everything can be mollified with a really good cup of tea.
“And having been provided with some fine tasting Satanic TEAs for the recording of the latest Cradle of Filth album (already on the boil and ready to pour later this year) from production company Pitch Black North, an idea was TEAsed into our collective skulls that a collaboration should be afoot.
“And thus it was.
“One for the uplift, one for the wind-down.
“Both based on Cradle of Filth songs, these expertly crafted beverages are not only bursting with maleficent flavour, but they also swim abrim with genuine witchcraft, having been brewed under all the right stars.
“So, put the heavy kettle on, put some Heavy Metal on and start conversing with your inner TEAmons.
“Pitch Black North presents DARK BLOOD and SWEETEST MALEFICIA.
“Steeped in Filth.”
This is, as far as I can recall at least, the very ever heavy metal-themed tea. Combine it with the special candle Steve Vai released earlier this year and you could probably have yourself a fairly relaxing evening.
