‘Dusk and her Embrace… the Original Sin’ by Cradle of Filth to be released

By on 16 May 2016

The reanimated Cacophonous label is to release the 21 year old recording of ‘Dusk and her Embrace… the Original Sin’, by Cradle of Filth, on 8 July. Cacophonous head Neil Harding said:

“The wait is over. The original ‘Dusk and Her Embrace’ is dragged kicking and screaming into the world, and people can finally hear for themselves what a true masterpiece it is.”

Recorded at Birmingham’s Zella Studios in the Spring of 1995, this second full-length introduce Gothic elements to Cradle’s raw black metal sound, focusing on decadent vampyric romanticism, death and loss, and forbidden love. However soon after recording the band split, half of the band forming The Blood Divine, and the remaining members made the collective decision at the time to not release a record that was not representative of the new line-up. Dani Filth said:

“This is where the quintessential Cradle Of filth album ‘Dusk And Her Embrace’ came from… Remastered for 2016 by Scott Atkins from the original DAT tapes with re-imagined art work by Drake this album remains raw and rawkus, untamed, proper underground British black metal… hopefully at it’s best, never to be repeated… enjoy!”

Re-mastered by Scott Atkins at Ipswich’s Grindstone Studio, the record is comprised of ten studio album tracks, two bonus demo tracks and artwork by Drake Mefestta. Guest vocal appearances come from Cronos (Venom) and Steve Grimmett (Grim Reaper).
