CRADLE OF FILTH's 'Cruelty And The Beast' To Be Reissued In November
Originally released in May 1998, CRADLE OF FILTH‘s heavy metal classic “Cruelty And The Beast” is regarded as one of the milestones in the gothic black metal genre.
Now 21 years later, this milestone album has been remixed and remastered by Grindstone Studio’s Scott Atkins and will be reissued on November 1 through legendary U.K. label Music For Nations.
Singer Dani Filth comments: “Released on the 5th of May, around the same time as we were arrested at the Vatican, ‘Cruelty And The Beast’ had been a painstaking labour of love, a year of intense writing amid ever growing popularity and distraction. The album’s concept of the Hungarian blood countess Elizabeth Bathory — both historically astute and fictionally correct — was to become a dangerous obsession of mine and one that saw many a first light of dawn working on the lyrics, hellbent on making the story worthy of her legend.“
Released on CD, transparent red vinyl and digitally, this elevated version of “Cruelty And The Beast” features new artwork from band illuminator Stuart Williamson, exclusive liner notes from Dani Filth and black metal writer and documentarian Dayal Patterson as well as a bonus track cover of IRON MAIDEN’s “Hallowed Be Thy Name”.
75 limited-edition test pressing vinyl versions will also be available, each coming with a personalised signed letter from Dani Filth.
