Seventh full-length album by the legendary British Symphonic Gothic Extreme Metal band.
Album was released on 17 October 2006, through Roadrunner Records. It was produced by former Anthrax guitarist Rob Caggiano, and once again features narration by Doug Bradley (as with “Midian” and “Nymphetamine”). It is Cradle of Filth's second album as a five-piece, as keyboardist Martin Powell left the band in 2005. This would also be the band's final album to feature drummer Adrian Erlandsson, and the only full-length to feature guitarist Charles Hedger.
Metal Hammer called album "undoubtedly their heaviest and most guitar-dominated record in many years". Terrorizer called the album "sharp, slick, elegant, focused, catchy, accessible heavy Gothic Metal, with the dark romantic shtick still present, but reined in and more explicitly parodic".
This album is another stake in the heart of disbelievers. In praise of lust, perversion and abandon, their signature brand of symphonic Gothic/Black Metal remains without peer!!
