Artist: Cradle Of Filth
Title: Total Fucking Darkness 2LP
Genre: Extreme Metal
Release Date: 5th May 2014
Label: Mordgrimm


Album Review

‘Total Fucking Darkness 2LP’ of CRADLE OF FILTH is a 1993 (their third) demo transformed to modern times from the tape-form; it has already opened its sonic eyes in May, so for some it’s old news. It has material originally intended for ‘Goetia’, the album that never came due to problems with their then label, as well as a lot of other interesting bits and bobs from the unreleased and hidden material in the band’s coven.

It shows them with raw Black Metal, brutal and less refined, Dani Filth is mostly in the grunting mode, it’s a dark wild beast of a release, examining itself with its tongue. In a way it retroactively reinvigorates one’s impression of their music. This is pre-‘Allende’ time so it’s also interesting to hear it without his input to see what Dani’s is - in the most obvious triad of showing that - it tries to reach epic proportions, is steeped in a sense of occult, it’s doing things one’s own way. It’s not just interesting for band’s fans to complete their discography with this kind of unearthing of band’s history, it’s interesting music full stop.
