Cradle of Filth To Reissue Two Iconic Titles on Vinyl

Cradle of Filth are set to reissue two iconic titles on vinyl, set to be out October 23rd. The Principle Of Evil Made Flesh is set to be reissued in Special Edition Gatefold blue/white 2LP limited to 1000 units. V Empire (Or Dark Faerytales in Phallustein) is set to be released in Gatefold Orange/Black LP with Double Sided insert limited to 1000 units.

Often imitated, Cradle of Filth helped usher in the second wave of black metal with their wholly unique sound, rife with dark keyboard melodies, vile riffs, and of course, Dani Filth’s unmistakable vocals. These reissues are deluxe gatefold covers on colored vinyl, the first ever domestic vinyl reissue for both titles!

Grammy nominated Cradle of Filth have been pioneers of extreme music since their debut in 1994 and have continued to evolve with each of their subsequent releases. Never shy of embracing the epic, Cradle have constantly sought to push the boundaries of their art and have continually refused to bow to convention or to conform to prevalent trends and fads. Despite this uncompromising stance, the band is still the most successful British heavy metal band since Iron Maiden with legions of fans around the globe. These 2 rare and early reissues are essential to the collections of any Cradle Of Filth or extreme metal fan.
