Tales From The Crypt

CONTINUING TO DEFY GENERIC CONVENTIONS, CRADLE OF FILTH ARE STILL GOING STRONG ON ALBUM NUMBER TWELVE. DANI FILTH SOUNDS OFF ON VICTORIAN OCCULTISM, BLACK METAL ELITISTS AND “IRON MAIDEN ON CRACK”…

CRADLE OF FILTH

“SOMEHOW ALONG THE WAY BLACK METAL BECAME ONE DISTINCTIVE SOUND AND I NEVER AGREED WITH THAT”

Purveyors of extreme gothic metal for almost three decades, Ipswich sixpiece Cradle Of Filth are responsible for an entire generation of New Rock clad youths and the infamous “Jesus Is A Cunt” t-shirt that has become a staple of festivals such as Bloodstock. While many may look back on the record collections of their youth and recollect albums such as ‘Midian’ with a nostalgic twinkle in their eye, Cradle Of Filth have lost none of their relevance and are still as potent as ever – the release of twelfth album ‘Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness Of Decay’ is proof of this. This record is deeply infused with Victorian gothic horror and thus the title is a reflection of that; ‘Cryptoriana…’ implies the Victorians’ obsession with the supernatural, the grave and the ghoulish, and the subtitle, ‘…The Seductiveness Of Decay’, further cements this attraction to death and the glittering lengthy process of selfannihilation.

About Terrorizer Magazine

Every month when it comes to writing this editorial, I sit back and tot up how many new records I’ve listened to in the time we’ve worked on getting this bad boy to the printers, and then I contemplate just how many more we’ve got to sift through for the upcoming issues as well. I literally lose count every time and for that I’m thankful. Never does it stop being fun listening to music each and every day. For me, Terrorizer also gives an opportunity for some of those bands to talk about their creations and the stories behind them. These are aspects that to me are as equally as important as the music itself. The written word can then bring those stories to life and that, in essence, is the importance of magazines and why they are still relevant in a social media driven world. Life isn’t just a soundbite or a meme and neither is music, so being able to share the stories behind Myrkur’s stunning new album or the dark, personal journey behind Akercocke’s brilliant ‘comeback’ album is vital. I hope you enjoy reading the features as much as I did when they landed in my inbox. Alongside those two pieces, as always there’s a fuck load of awesome bands featured and the odd controversial review to boot. It’s been a blast to create the issue and we’re already hard at work at the new one so we’ll see you very soon! Stay tuned. Darren Sadler
