‘Midnight In The Labyrinth’ is the latest, inspired work, from the UK’s most successful extreme act, traversing an ethereal cinematic landscape of classical and symphonic darkness; a style the band has always woven seamlessly into their compositions.
‘Midnight in the Labyrinth’ is available to coincide with Record Store Day on April 21st in participating countries, & sees a general release across other countries, as a strictly limited edition 2-disc set of delectable magic, with disc 1 containing narrated nightmares courtesy of Dani Filth, plus additional vocals from Sarah Jezebel Deva, whilst disc 2 contains purely orchestral and symphonic recordings.
Taking the most requested tracks from the first four official releases, Cradle of Filth have fulfilled audience desire by creating an album based on their most popular older tracks, but one that is delivered orchestrally to create a rich, haunting sonic landscape in the vein of soundtrack composers such as Jerry Goldsmith, Danny Elfman and Hans Zimmer.
Ten songs make up this 78 minute meisterwerk (including the addition of a thirteen minute exclusive aural séance on CD1), indulging such COF classics as ‘Funeral In Carpathia’, ‘The Twisted Nails Of Faith’ and ‘Summer Dying Fast’, which has already been showcased on last year’s ‘Evermore Darkly’ EP to a more than rapturous audience response.
Cradle Of Filth also return this Halloween with their new studio album.
