Product Overview

The cradle is rocking, the dead are rising, the seas will boil and the skies will fall. As the world stands poised on the edge of mass destruction, the freaks, fools and monsters who rule us are about to be taught a real lesson in the use of power, for Cradle of Filth have created the greatest album of their career to date. Damnation and a Day, has been carved out of the darkness that is about to engulf what we know as civilisation.Damnation and a Day was scripted by the prince of darkness Dani Filth, whose quest to decipher the truth behind the Bible, brought him to summon forth Lucifer during a ritualistic killing. The once expelled angel willingly gave his side of the story from beginning to what will be the inevitable end for us. You will bear witness to his tale, during the 17 tracks of the concept album Damnation and a Day which lies before you. Your death is nigh, so listen carefully and then offer your soul to the Filth and you might be saved, deny them and your destruction will come in many forms.

In the beginning there was metal and it was heavy. In the mid-'80s an underground sub-genre made a name for itself based as much on satanic imagery as on extreme music, with bands like Bathory and Mayhem. Enter England's Cradle of Filth, who took black metal to new heights in the '90s. DAMNATION AND A DAY finds the band at the artistic pinnacle of its controversial career, with the unprecedented-for-the-genre support of Sony firmly behind them.
Forged with fire and brimstone, DAMNATION tells the biblical tale of temptation ("Serpent Tongue") and the revenge of outcasts ("Carrion"), a theme present in many Cradle albums, be the subjects cast out of society or heaven. Dani Filth's multifaceted whisper-to-a-scream vocals are operatic in scope and anguished with pain. Not unlike a more evil manifestation of Iron Maiden, double-time melodic riffs gallop and trample the senses. Brass-heavy orchestral interludes like a Verdi requiem and Karloff-esque spoken passages lend a horror-film quality. Goth ("Thank God For The Suffering") and Egyptian ("Doberman Pharaoh") vibes add depth and texture. DAMNATION is an all-out aural assault that will force you to take notice.
Artist Overview
Black metal, death metal, extreme metal, or goth--U.K. band Cradle of Filth has been tagged as all four and more, a testament to their versatility and imagination within the confines of the often monolithic metal genre. Formed by lead singer and former Feast of Excrement member Dani Filth in 1991, the band has undergone many line-up changes, but the steady thread is Dani Filth's operatic and expressive vocals, which conjure the bliss of demons, the rage of heaven, and everything in between. The poeticism of his lyrics is supported by choral singing and other symphonic touches. The band released several independent albums before signing to Sony in 2003, and continue to confound and delight their fans with an ever-evolving yet always-extreme sound.
