Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa is the band’s ninth studio album and in the word’s of Cradle’s infamous frontman Dani Filth is “without doubt the fastest and most brutal album we’ve created to date. As an acquaintance of the band so aptly noted, this is like Iron Maiden on crack in a graveyard of angels!”
“This album is Cradle at our most sinister and darkened fairytale,” continues Dani. “A gothic horror themed slay-ride of fervour and perversion; yet amidst the orchestral melodrama and lush, cinematic production, there sits stalwart a ravening beast of furious riffing, flesh ripping vocals and monstrous, unstoppable percussion.”
