So here it is, the announced EP with a playing time of almost 50 minutes. I guess that's why we have to pay the full price! If justified or not, that's up to you to decide.
You'll get three re-recordings of songs off their debut-album "The Principle Of Evil Made Flesh", all sounding far fatter and more brutal. Then there is an adaption of the SISTERS OF MERCY-song "No Time To Cry", which has turned out very good. And the three new tracks can keep the level of their last masterpiece "Midian".
You can think about CRADLE OF FILTH whatever you want, but they have their own style and offer us a lot of possession and love for details! The hysteric vocals of Dani again will ward off many people, he barks, grunts, shrieks, wails...but he's original, you have to concede that! The songs all are somewhere between symphony, fury, theatralics and a horror-atmosphere. Only very few other bands manage to ooze such a ghostly aura, with lots of variety, great entertainment!
And listen closely to the lyrics, with all their evilness there always is a touch of poetry to them! Your normal school-English won't be enough there!
