British extreme heavy metal act Cradle of Filth recently announced its latest inspired work, Midnight in the Labyrinth, a two-disc set traversing an ethereal cinematic landscape of classical and symphonic darkness. This strictly limited edition release of delectable magic will contain narrated nightmares, courtesy of Dani Filth, plus additional vocals from Sarah Jezebel Deva, on disc one. Disc two will feature purely orchestral and symphonic recordings.
Midnight in the Labyrinth will be available to coincide with Record Store Day on April 21st via Nuclear Blast Records, however the band and label have launched an exclusive pre-order bundle package: http://bit.ly/mitlnbusa featuring a commemorative, limited-edition t-shirt and 2-CD digibook.
Taking the most requested tracks from the first four official releases, Cradle of Filth has fulfilled audience desire by creating an album based on the most popular older tracks, but one that is delivered orchestrally to create a rich, haunting sonic landscape in the vein of soundtrack composers such as Jerry Goldsmith, Danny Elfman, and Hans Zimmer.
The collection will include 10 songs spanning 78-minutes (including the addition of a thirteen-minute exclusive aural séance on CD1), with reworked COF classics like “Funeral In Carpathia” and “The Twisted Nails Of Faith,” as well as “Summer Dying Fast,” which was showcased on last year’s ‘Evermore Darkly…’ EP.
Stay tuned for more information on Cradle of Filth and Midnight in the Labyrinth.
