The Skinny: Cradle of Filth has posted a brand new track, “Manticore,” from the upcoming album, The Manticore and Other Horrors, for streaming on SoundCloud – listen below! “Manticore” is the second track to surface from the band’s impending 10th studio release, which is due out on October 30th in North America via Nuclear Blast.
Recorded in eight weeks at both Springvale and Grindstone studios (where it was also mixed by Scott Atkins) in Suffolk, UK, the album is a testament to the longevity of The ‘Filth, as not only does it reek of Cradle’s (feared or revered) brand of delicious metal vamperotica, but this thoroughly modern album places the band firmly in fresh killing fields anew.
The Manticore and Other Horrors itself possesses an altogether new atmosphere for the band, incorporating a heavier, faster NWOBBM punk vibe that is both current and cruel, blended with ornate orchestration and the quirky immediateness of 2000’s Midian opus. Artwork for the impending release comes courtesy of Matthew Vickerstaff of Darkwaveart.
