Cradle Of Filth – Total Fucking Darkness (2014)

Cradle Of Filth - Total Fucking Darkness

What you’re getting is a remastered and extended edition of the Total Fucking Darkness demo, which originally only contained about four songs and ran about twenty-five minutes. This new version contains twelve tracks, runs at a little over an hour and features nothing that has previously appeared on Invoking The Unclean, Orgiastic Pleasures Foul or The Black Goddess Rises,(with the exception of the title track from that latter demo, of course.) so this is Cradle as you’ve never heard them before and is an absolute treat for the fans. I’ll be perfectly honest with you; I was completely floored from the beginning to the end with this release. Hearing one of my all-time favorite acts in this new light was certainly an experience that I’ll never forget. Granted I’ve heard the old demos, but nothing came through with the clarity on this piece. The remastering is done so well that it could have been recorded this year, I can clearly discern the drumming, the guitars come in like a fiery fuzz and Dani’s vocals are blistering. You might hear a slight scream every once in a while, but for those of you who have cast this guy out as a Hot Topic sellout; this record’s going to make you shit yourself. Some of you are undoubtedly new to Cradle’s work and probably never knew that there was ever a period in time where they sounded like this. I’m also sure that some of you are going to wish that they never changed their sound with The Priniciple Of Evil Made Flesh debut. Oddly enough, even the sound change seems odd to me now, seeing as they recorded so much material in this death metal style right before the Principle debut released. Remember, this is the last demo they recorded before that debut album, so it’s an impeccably odd transition…”
