Sorry it's been a while since I've done a review.
Darkly Darkly, Venus Aversa is Cradle of Filth's new album.
I' m reviewing this because I think it's getting a raw deal from the know it all's out there who couldn't play an instrument if their tenticles were put to the fire.
This album is in a way a cross of the last three, taking pieces from each musically.
They are no longer with Roadrunner by their choice and desire for more creative room. So they are enduring big budget cuts. That is what musicians with passion and balls do.
Dani and friends still deliver.
Minus Sarah, Ashley Ellyon has stepped up doing keyboard and backup vocals, she does the deed well. Also back after being absent from the last album is James Mcllroy, bringing more thrash riffs to the Filth sound. Co founder Paul Adler delivers fine display of scattered solo's. Pybus on Bass still the same as before.
I own the vinyl which comes with an extra song
-Beast of Extermination
If you prefer CD form I suggest the delux edition which comes with a second disc containing 4 bonus songs.
My EvilAngel and I got ours from CM Distro which offers an exclusive T-shirt in normal Filth style to piss of your local conservative anti music mind suckers.
