British extreme metallers Cradle Of Filth have premiered a new short film to promote their upcoming foray into graphic novels, The Curse of Venus Aversa, previously unveiled. Produced by Greylight Studios, the movie purports to show a secret ceremony in New Orleans recorded on a hidden camera. The graphic novel itself is co-written by vocalist Dani Filth and New Orleans comic book author Kurt Amacker, and takes place in a Victorian world populated by images, themes, and horrors drawn from the Filth's back catalog. The entire 76-page graphic novel is rendered in black and white art by illustrator Montgomery Borror.
There is a big European double-headlining tour coming next year in February. British extreme metallers Cradle Of Filth will embark on a 19-date European co-headlining tour with Polish death metal legion Behemoth, which will release their new album The Satanist in 2014. To complete the tour, there will be In Solitude, Inquisition and Svarttjern as support.
Cradle Of Filth announced they were preparing some special things for the 20th anniversary of their debut album The Principle Of Evil Made Flesh including a comic book and here it is. The British metallers will publish the 72-page "adult graphic novel" called The Curse Of Venus Aversa which features a story by singer Dani Filth and New Orleans cult comic book author Kurt Amacker (Dead Souls, The 69 Eyes: Helsinki Vampires), who wrote the final script. It tells the story of a "salacious Victorian poet who faces down authorities, hoards of vampires, an ancient goddess, and his own demons — all that, after the suicide of his lover Gabrielle."
Next year marks the 20th anniversary of Cradle Of Filth's landmark debut album The Principle Of Evil Made Flesh released on Cacophonous Records. To celebrate this occasion, the band is planning many things for 2014 including the first ever Cradle Of Filth comic, the release of a career-spanning double disc 'best-of' and subsequent touring.
