Cradle Of Filth – Announce UK and Ireland Shows March 2016

 Cradle Of Filth – Announce UK and Ireland Shows March 2016

Cradle Of Filth, one of the greatest and most influential British metal bands of all time are very pleased to announce a run of three UK and Ireland shows this upcoming March. These dates will follow a highly anticipated headline performance at renowned UK metal festival Hammerfest VIII.

You can see Cradle Of Filth live on the following dates:

March 10th to 13th – Hammerfest VIII

March 12th – Chester, Live Rooms

March 13th – Dublin, Academy

March 14th – Belfast, Limelight 1

Cradle Of Filth’s latest album and opus nocturne Hammer Of The Witches was released earlier this year to widespread critical acclaim. The album stands out as a milestone

in Cradle’s lengthy history. It continues their grand tradition of infusing every album with a unique atmosphere and conceptual elements that embolden the songs’ dramatic execution. It is classic Cradle from start to finish. And with typically mischievous aplomb, the album’s title flips the historical script, turning the tables on the gruesome witch hunts of 16th and 17th century Europe and exacting some hard-earned vengeance on behalf of all of those who suffered persecution at the hands of religious zealots during that turbulent period in history.

They sound revitalised, playing with a primordial vigour, as though purging centuries of rage.”

these are the most vital and incisive songs Dani Filth has conjured from the dark ether in a long time.”

Cradle Of Filth have cast a commanding and macabre shadow across the metal scene for nearly a quarter of a century. Armed with their trademark, cross-pollinated assault, that taps into myriad strands of sonic extremity and morbid opulence, they have steadily conquered the entire world, unleashing a malevolent slew of classic albums along the way. From the raw and rambunctious savagery of their 1994 debut ‘The Principle Of Evil Made Flesh‘ to the wickedly monstrous, technicolour bombast of 2012’s ‘The Manticore & Other Horrors‘, the Cradle ethos and aesthetic has had a huge impact on the evolution of metal. The band’s insatiable appetite for performing live alongside frontman Dani Filth‘s unerring charisma and sense of occasion ensure that they have established a powerful and enduring connection with Hell-bound acolytes everywhere.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
