As for other matters the EP/DVD 'Evermore Darkly' should be out in a smattering of days, something has always been fan-related and served up like loving gloop just in time for Hallowe'en. It's an expansive release as we tried to get as much cool stuff on it as possible, including squeezing the whole hour-long show at Graspop into the jar as well. I think fans are going to love it, and if you don't, tough shit. We do!
The orchestral album 'Midnight In The Labyrinth' is also gluing together nicely with three of the tracks having been mixed thus far. The full running order for this opus nocturne is as follows, though possibly not in this precise order…
The Forest Whispers My Name
The Twisted Nails Of Faith
Summer Dying Fast -a preview of this appearing on the EP
The Rape And Ruin Of Angels (Hosannas In Extremis)
Funeral In Carpathia
Thirteen Autumns And A Widow
A Gothic Romance (Red Roses For The Devil's Whore)
Cruelty Brought Thee Orchids
Dusk And Her Embrace
If you've been holidaying on Venus for the past few months then you most likely won't been aware of this exciting COF project which features nine classic Cradle tunes reinvented as orchestral compositions. This is no elevator music (or indeed the theme music to Schindler's Lift!), this is a full-on horror film soundtrack in the vein of Danny Elfman, Christopher Young or Jerry Goldsmith. Musical scores to whittle away the evil winter months to… this should see the poisonous light of day in April 2012. Ish.
There is also a wealth of new merchandising on the way too, which can be found on the band's web-store on this very site, including the re-introduction of the classic 'Jesus Is A Cunt' t-shirt in all it's ultra blasphemous glory, as well as key iconic designs from our back catalogue. Also keep your eyes peeled for a glut of new designs which will be arriving just in time for Xmas morn. Festive they ain't!
Anyhoo, I feel certain that most of our immediate plans are covered for the time being and if you want to catch up with any of the latest press marauding, especially here in the United Kingdom Of A State, then here is a small list of some of the bigger but not necessarily better ones.
‘At Home With Dani’ feature to run within the next 4 weeks with a 2 page feature confirmed for their Halloween issue, Me picking out some of my favourite horror films from the safety of my sofa.
In NME there is also a ‘Does Rock N Roll Kill Braincells?’ creature feature, where I ably prove this title pretty correct in it's assumption, whites runs quite fortuitously for Halloween.
The new issue of Metal Hammer also features a column I have written concerning the subject of heavy metal and related social prejudice, aside from a blowing review. Heavy thinking stuff indeed!
Once again thanks for your patience and ardent devotion to the cause and have a truly creepy All Hallow's Eve if I don't catch you in the meantime.
Ave Sultanas! Fork the prunes!
