Extreme Metal legends CRADLE OF FILTH – led by iconic frontman Dani Filth – have unleashed a thirst-quencher of epic proportions in the form of their first live album to be released in over 20 years, “Trouble And Their Double Lives”, out today via Napalm Records.
In celebration of today’s album release, CRADLE OF FILTH have revealed a brand new live performance music video for one of the two new studio tracks cut from ‘Trouble And Their Double Lives”, entitled “Demon Prince Regent”.
Dani Filth says about the track and live album release: “The footage for the studio track ‘Demon Prince Regent’ was filmed on the road whilst recently undertaking the co-headline ‘Double Trouble Live’ tour with DEVILDRIVER in the US. The video is a logical visual bridge between airing the second studio track and the actual live album, wherein you also get the luxury of seeing our repugnant faces. As for the album itself, I hope everyone enjoys this cantankerous volley of s(hits) just as much as we enjoyed making them, with songs stolen from COF shows from all across the world. And as cliche as it sounds, ‘this album is totally for the fans… Let’s see those f**king horns!!!’ “
Recorded between 2014 and 2019 at different performances in the USA, Europe, Australia and beyond during their “Cryptoriana World Tour” and dates following, the album serves as a time-capsule of blisteringly intense live energy, and an astounding testament to CRADLE OF FILTH’s renowned latest era.
Produced, mixed and mastered by Scott Atkins at Grindstone Studios in Suffolk, England with recording captured by Danny B, the brand new live onslaught not only features a slew of fan favorites encompassing the band’s electrifying discography – such as “Nymphetamine (Fix)”, “Bathory Aria” and “Blackest Magick in Practice” – but also two bonus tracks and two entirely brand new songs, “She is a Fire” and “Demon Prince Regent”.
The two new studio tracks provide a hefty taste of what’s to come on future CRADLE OF FILTH studio releases! “She Is A Fire” starts the album with a sinister riff, ominous atmosphere and spine-tingling keys. Dani Filth’s renowned vocal delivery cascades in haunting screams and whispers atop hair-raising guitar leads and unrelenting drums. “Demon Prince Regent” slams in with a wall of sound and grim, blackened guitar leads before reaching a headbanging, bouncing chorus. Dramatic, score-like symphonics encapsulate the melancholic anthem before leading into a speeding solo, proving itself as yet another CRADLE OF FILTH classic to be.
