Paul Allender talks about the new punky CRADLE OF FILTH record

1 min read

CRADLE OF FILTH guitarist Paul Allender recently talked to Pure Gain Audio about the band’s latest punky album “The Manticore and Other Horrors”, which was released almost a month ago.

He states:

I think it will be really important. It got an injection of groove, and there’s a punk aspect that we put back into it that the band had lost since the first album, “Principle of Evil Made Flesh”. That album had that vibe. It had that real aggressive, metal-punky vibe to it, which the band completely lost. And over the last few albums, it just felt like the stuff we were writing sounded the same. So this time we had to do something more drastic. There’s nothing worse than a band that keeps releasing albums that sound exactly the same over and over again. We have got such a really good feedback so far. The journalists that have heard it so far are really into it. Especially in Europe, there is a whole bunch of journalists that said this is the best thing we have ever done for the last 12 years, which is brilliant. And we had a lot of people coming to say to us as well: “We kind of lost interest for band on the last few albums, but this one puts you back in the game finally.” So I think it’s really important.
