Cradle Of Filth'
Cryptoriana - The Seductiveness Of DecayA monstrous tour-de-force of utterly distinctive but reassuringly destructive heavy fucking metal, laced with spectral disquiet but delivered with muscular aplomb, Cryptoriana was conceived during the summer of 2016 as Cradle Of Filth convened in Ashok and Škaroupka's native Czech Republic, before being meticulously pieced together by the band and now long-time producer Scott Atkins back in the UK during the first half of 2017. From the exhilarating melodrama of opening two-fisted salvo 'Exquisite Torments Await' and 'Heartbreak And Seance' onwards, the twelfth Cradle Of Filth album manifestly represents yet another wild expansion of the band's sonic manifesto across nine epic and elaborate new anti-hymns and, as Dani mentions, a fervent blast through Canadian thrash legends Annihilator's ageless 'Alison Hell'. From 'Achingly Beautiful''s synapse-scorching holocaust of the heart to the flesh-ripping, thrash-driven grandeur of 'Wester, Vespertine' and the pitch-black lysergic gargoyle attack of 'You Will Know The Lion By His Claw', Cryptoriana is simply the most musically and visually startling record in Cradle Of Filth's history; one that grittily upholds the band's tradition of conjuring warped narratives that linger long in the memory.
"The album, both lyrically and artistically, is infused with Victorian gothic horror and thus the title is a reflection of that," Dani explains. "'Cryptoriana' implies the Victorians' infatuation with the supernatural, the grave and the fervently ghoulish. The subtitle, The Seductiveness Of Decay, further cements the attraction to death and the glittering lengthy process of self-annihilation. To immerse myself in the subject matter and courtesy of his good friend H.G. Wells, I built a time machine and went to live amongst the clandestine underworld of late Victorian England "
Cryptoriana - The Seductiveness Of Decay is exactly the kind of commanding artistic statement that fans of this indestructible British metal institution have grown to expect. The difference this time is that Cradle Of Filth appear to have clicked into a new, higher gear and the results are fascinating, terrifying and electrifying in equal measure. As they prepare to introduce these stunning new songs to their dedicated global fan base, Cradle Of Filth have never been more powerful or their excellence so undeniable.1. Exquisite Torments Await

Songs From The Garage (Pink Vinyl)Pink Colored Vinyl
Features AC/DC Lead Vocalist Brian Johnson
Guitars And Production Duties Handled By Rob Caggiano (Anthrax, Volbeat, Bleeding Through, Cradle Of Filth And More)
Whether it's Spinal Tap gloriously losing the plot, the escapades of Tenacious D getting them into trouble, or the phenomenon that is Dethklok tearing up the album charts, comedy and heavy music have long made for great bedfellows. Jim Breuer is a man who understands this, and with Songs From The Garage, his first full-length with longtime backing band The Regulators, he delivers both in his inimitable style. "I basically want the crowd to have a blast, and I write what I feel that I would love if I was in the crowd. So, going into the record the music had to be killer and have great hooks, that was most important, and I wanted to balance that with something that's funny," he enthuses. "I wanted to bring the smile back to hard rock that has a nice punch to it - and in doing so hopefully bridge the gap so my generation and their kids will come see this live together!"
In realizing this, Breuer has delivered a record that is pure, unadulterated fun, and yes, it rocks. From crunchy opening romp "Thrash" through the swaggering "Who Better Than Us?" to the gloriously deranged excitement suffusing "Sugar Rush", his exuberance is infectious, and he challenges you to keep your ass from shaking and the corners of your mouth twitching while it thunders from the speakers. Throughout, his influences bleed through, comfortably blurring the line between hard rock and metal while every anthemic chorus lodges irrevocably in the hippocampus. While a great many 'comedy rock' records are ultimately pretty throwaway and last as long as the joke stays funny, this is not the case with Songs From The Garage. True to his game plan, Breuer has made great songs, ones that persistently draw a smile and will fit comfortably when shuffled among the likes of Megadeth, AC/DC, Judas Priest and more contemporary bands, such as Avenged Sevenfold and Halestorm.
Having finally made the album that has been burning to get out of him since his teens, Breuer couldn't be happier with the result. Though he has fulfilled one rock and roll dream with its completion, it certainly does not mean he's about to kick back and leave it at that. "I plan on making great, funny videos for every song and have videos up during the concerts. I want pure entertainment when you come see this live, and now my rock and roll dream is to play this not only here in America, but anywhere else in the world that will accept it! I'm taking it one day at a time, living the dream."1. Thrash

And Hell Will Follow Me (Out Of Stock)Includes CD
A Pale Horse Named Death is the brainchild of Brooklyn, NY native Sal Abruscato, and sounds like Alice in Chains mysteriously sneaking up behind Type O Negative with a butcher knife while being filmed for a future episode of Law & Order. Sals partner in crime on And Hell Will Follow Me is Matt Brown, sound engineer extraordinaire and guitarist of fellow NY band Seventh Void.
The chemistry between me and Matt is unique and flawless, very rare in todays music. We are the murdering evil version of Lennon and McCartney. says Abruscato. Brown adds, Sal asked me if I would help to take these songs to the next level. I took on this project for my friend, to find some closure in rough times. The music is just an extension of our friendship and our passion for creativity.

Awaken (Out of Stock)The Blood Divine was a British Gothic metal band, founded in the summer of 1995 by Paul Allender, brothers Paul and Benjamin Ryan, after the three had recently left UK extreme metallers Cradle of Filth. They were joined by the recently ousted Anathema singer Darren White, & then recruited drummer William A. 'W.A.S.' Sarginson and bassist Steve Maloney before being quickly signed up by Peaceville Records.
The debut album 'Awaken' was recorded in early 1996 at Academy Studios in West Yorkshire UK (My Dying Bride, Paradise Lost, Anathema), and was released later that same year. This quickly led to intensive livework, touring throughout Europe with Cathedral and label mates, My Dying Bride.
With their expertly crafted compositions of rich, classic metal riffs and sweeping melodic passages, plus Ben Ryan's gothic & at times psychedelia-tinged keyboard arrangements backing up Daz White's perfectly fitting vocal delivery, 'Awaken' was greatly received upon release, as the band's profile swiftly grew.
In what was considered somewhat of a supergroup, The Blood Divine recorded 2 albums of highly individualistic gothic rock/doom metal with strong keyboard atmospherics & prog elements, before disbanding in 1998, with Paul Allender rejoining Cradle of Filth.1. So Serene

This was the last release that vocalist Darren White appeared on, before leaving the band to form The Blood Divine with various members of the original Cradle Of Filth line up.

Lost Paradise (Out of Stock)Paradise Lost formed in Halifax, West Yorkshire in 1988 and are known for being the founders of the Gothic Death/Doom Metal genre; a style fully brought into existence with their genre-defining second album, the highly influential 'Gothic'.
Having released 2 albums, including 'Gothic', for the UK's Peaceville Records and later helping to establish Peaceville as home to the finest trio of UK doom bands (alongside My Dying Bride and Anathema), Paradise Lost then signed with felow UK label, Music For Nations which eventually led to the band breaking through to mainstream rock and metal audiences as their style evolved, becoming one of the UK's most essential metal exports around the globe in the process.
'Lost Paradise' was the band's debut album, released in 1990 and one of the early highlights in the formative years of Peaceville. Featuring more death metal influences, Paradise Lost created a dark
and atmospheric style of brutal death metal, as opposed to one based on speed. The album was recorded at Academy Studios (My Dying Bride, Anathema, Cradle of Filth) in Yorkshire, England.1. Intro
