Cradle Of Filth Announce Exclusive Cruelty And The Beast Show
Extreme metal heroes Cradle Of Filth have announced a very special show at the London Palladium for October 19.
Dubbed ‘Into The Pallademonium’, the Suffolk mob will be performing their 1998 third album Cruelty And The Beast at one of London’s most beautiful theatre venues, before then following the record-in-full set with “a second act full of graven favourites”.
Frontman Dani Filth says: “The Nightmare Before Halloween. Cradle Of Filth are very much looking forward to bringing this experience to the capital just prior to Halloween this year. It’s certainly going to be a night to remember, with a massive production accompanying not one, but two sets from yours truly, in a night dead-icated to all things ghoulish, flamboyant and macabre.
“Come on down to London Town fellow creatures of the night and experience Cradle Of Filth as you’ve never seen us before; performing not only one of our most celebrated releases, but also a slew of other fan-favourites, amidst cool and opulent surroundings.”
Tickets go on sale this Friday (August 16) from the Kerrang! Ticket Store – don’t miss out.
Kerrang! recently spoke to Dani about Cradle’s most recent U.S. tour, and the state of modern horror.
“I think horror is getting cooler, and more thought-out,” he said. “More off-the-wall, which I think is the case with music as well. Everything’s been so cross-pollinated, to the point where everything is sounding the same, and that which isn’t is just being regurgitated, with people doing reissues or redoing old movies – which isn’t always a bad thing. The recent Halloween was great, for example.”
What Dani finds especially interesting is how horror’s new directions have made it a genre unto itself once more, rather than a collection of “psychological thrillers” and goofball cult classics. “The good ones I’ve seen recently have all seemed to be very different. I like The Ritual, I liked Get Out, the premise of A Quite Place was cool…I like the way it’s getting back to being a genre as such. There was a time when it all sort of dissipated and no one was investing in it, and now it’s a bit more a genre.”
