CRADLE OF FILTH have entered Grindstone Studio in Suffolk, U.K. to begin recording their new album.
On Thursday (May 25), CRADLE OF FILTH posted a few photos from the studio to their social media and wrote in an accompanying message: “We’re on our way Filthlings! From [CRADLE drummer] Martin ‘Marthus’ Skaroupka Just finished recording drums for the new CRADLE OF FILTH album and it’s sounding amazing so far! Great to be working with our producer Scott Atkins at Grindstone Studio again!”
Last month, CRADLE OF FILTH released their first live album in over 20 years, “Trouble And Their Double Lives”, via Napalm Records. The LP was recorded between 2014 and 2019 at different performances in the USA, Europe, Australia and beyond during the band’s “Cryptoriana” world tour and dates following.
Produced, mixed and mastered by Scott Atkins at Grindstone Studios, with recording captured by Danny B, the effort not only features a slew of fan favorites encompassing the band’s discography but also two bonus tracks and two entirely brand new songs, “She Is A Fire” and “Demon Prince Regent”.
Earlier this month, Dani Filth was asked by BLABBERMOUTH.NET if the next CRADLE OF FILTH album would have a similar sound to previous LP’s like “Cryptoriana” or “Existence Is Futile”. He responded: “It’s not going to be a million miles away from that. I’ve been working on some of the material today.
“We’re putting the finishing touches on the songs we’re going to record, whether all of them make the grade or not. It has a ‘Dusk… And Her Embrace’ vibe to them. Musically, it plays across ‘Dusk’ and ‘Midian’, but lyrically, and the vibe of it, it has a ‘Dusk… And Her Embrace’ feel to it. I don’t know why. History repeats itself. Maybe it’s because we wrote ‘Dusk’ around this particular time of year, but it has that vibe. It sounds great, but I would say that, wouldn’t I?”
