Cradle of Filth are an English extreme metal band from Suffolk, currently featuring Dani Filth, Martin 'Marthus' Škaroupka, Daniel Firth, Lindsay Schoolcraft, Richard Shaw and Marek 'Ashok' Šmerda. Evolving from their original black metal sound to a more user-friendly blend of symphonic and gothic metal, the band would go on to become one of the UK’s most successful heavy acts.
Formed in 1991, the band released their debut album, ‘The Principle of Evil Made Flesh’, in 1994, after which they signed to Music For Nations, but it was their third album, ‘Cruelty and the Beast’, which came out in 1998, which saw the band break into the UK Albums Chart Top 50. The band briefly signed to Sony Records for their fifth album, ‘Damnation and a Day’, in 2003, before moving to Roadrunner Records, for their next record, ‘Nymphetamine’, in 2004 and Nuclear Blast, for their ninth album, ‘Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa’, in 2010. The band are set to release their latest album, ‘Cryptoriana - The Seductiveness of Decay’, in September 22, 2017.
Cradle Of Filth have announced UK and Ireland shows for autumn in support of ‘Cryptoriana - The Seductiveness of Decay’, and also head to North America in spring, and then Australia in May 2018. Catch them live by checking out dates and ticket information on Stereoboard below.

Another few years, another Cradle of Filth album. Grist for the Satanic mill, as frontman Dani Filth might put it. But the thing the band’s detractors fail to acknowledge, the thing that makes Suffolk’s spookiest outfit so damn idiosyncratic, is that they never release the same record twice.
Legends of extreme music, black metal blaggers or Hot Topic heathens...whatever your view on Cradle of Filth, it’s already been expressed on some internet messageboard. They’ve heard it all before. Dani Filth’s troupe of misfits have undergone various line-up and stylistic changes over their near three decade existence, but one thing remains the same: people online hate them.
