A brand new Cradle Of Filthtrack, entitled "Dirge Inferno", is available for streaming here. The song comes off the British extreme metallers' new album, "Thornography", due on October 16 via Roadrunner Records. The follow-up to 2004's "Nymphetamine", "Thornography" was recorded at Lincolnshire, England's Chapel studios with producer Rob Caggiano and was mixed at Backstage Studios in Derbyshire, England by Andy Sneap.

"Thornography" [cover] track listing:

Under Pregnant Skies She Comes Alive Like Miss Leviathan
Dirge Inferno
Tonight in Flames
Libertina Grimm
Byronic Man
I Am The Thorn
Cemetery And Sundown
Lovesick For Mina
The Foetus Of A New Day Kicking
Rise Of The Pentagram
Under Huntress Moon

The narraration for "Thornography" was once again laid down by Doug Bradley (a.k.a. "Hellraiser"'s chief Cenobite, Pinhead), who has previously worked with the group on "Her Ghost in the Fog" and "Swansong for a Raven".

On the subject of the album's musicial direction, Cradle Of Filth guitarist Paul Allender recently told Terrorizer magazine, "There are quite a few guitar solos on this album. To be honest, I've never really classed myself as a lead player as such, but this is the first time I've sat down and seriously practiced lead work. I've been so involved in actually writing new material and coming up with song structures that I haven't had time to practice all the frilly things that go on top of it. Up 'till now, there hasn't really been much room for guitar solos as such. The riffs we write, they're not riffs that are meant to be soloed on top of. They're melodic within themselves. But I'm a great believer than less is definitely more. I love listening to all the shreddy, widdly stuff, but I have no interest in playing it. This new album is quite guitar-orientated. The last album was, but this is definitely more melodic. Dare I say it, there are quite a lot of typical Maiden-esque harmonies in there."

this song is quit good specially what concerns dani's voice and the guitars i hope the whole album will be as good as the song
ThunderAxe1989 - 26.08.2006 at 04:04  
meh, i don't really like it, i don't 'feel it'......and yeah it does sound a little too Iron Maiden-like (the guitars i mean). I'll have to give it a thumb down, sorry.

I quite like it, though admittedly hope it's not the best the new album has to offer.
Dr Ikari - 26.08.2006 at 07:02  
I dunno...I've seen some videos of these guys playing live recently and the band just don't sound too good. Let's see what happens

As long as its not Nymphetamine 2... that would be a travesty.

Nymphetamine was a terrible attempt at Celtic Frost with tacky orchestras... they should just stick to their classic style and go back to Cruelty style

'Damnation And A Day' is a great album! :p

However, I thought that 'Thornography' will by shitty album, but now I'm sure I'll buy it : )
Eviscerator - 16.09.2006 at 01:16  
Damnation and Nymph sucked ass but I'm rather impressed by this song. They changed again, musically. Good direction this time. It's not Principle but...hey
