For Immediate Release:

CRADLE OF FILTH Unleashes Damnation And A Day Through Red Ink/Epic Records On March 25, 2003

Band Films Big Budget Video and OZZFEST Performance Confirmed!

British Shock Rock innovators Cradle of Filth have spent the past decade igniting the world with their singular brand of dramatic extreme heavy music. Now signed to Sony Music, they plan to dominate the world. Having worked painstakingly for the past year, Cradle of Filth is prepared to unleash their most dominating work to date. Scheduled for a March 25th release through the Red Ink/EPIC label, Damnation And A Day destroys boundaries and basically smashes the mold of what defines extreme. Simply stated, Cradle of Filth has transcended stereotypical genre and birthed a multi-faceted musical work of art.

Produced by Doug Cook (Anathema, Cathedral, & mixed 4 previous FILTH releases) and mixed by Rob Caggiano (Dry Kill Logic, Ill Nino, Ra, 36 Crazy Fists) & Steve Regina (Days of the New, Dream Theater, Dry Kill Logic) at Scrap 60 Productions, Damnation And A Day raises the bar for the band both musically and creatively. A concept record in design, the album was penned by founding member/vocalist Dani Davey, rife with apocalyptic prophecy and majestic sonic revelation. Joining Dani in this venture of macabre minstrelry are guitarist Paul Allender, keyboardist Martin Powell, drummer Adrian Erlandsson, and newcomer bassist Dave Pybus (formerly of Anathema).

The album is the band's 9th studio album and the first for Sony Music, and for this occasion, Cradle of Filth have pulled all the stops. Clocking in at 77 minutes, the band has implemented the edgiest musicianship and blackened elegance of their careers to date. Topping the achievement is the flowing film score quality accomplished through the employment of a 40-piece orchestra & 32-piece choir found in Budapest, Hungary.

Tracklisting for Damnation And A Day includes:

1. A Bruise Upon The Silent Moon
2. The Promise Of Fever
3. Hurt And Virtue
4. An Enemy Led The Tempest
5. Damned In Any Language (A Plague On Words)
6. Better To Reign In Hell
7. Serpent Tongue
8. Carrion
9. The Mordant Liquor Of Tears
10. Present From The Poison-Hearted
11. Doberman (Pharaoh)
12. Babalon A.D. (So Glad For The Madness)
13. A Scarlet Witch Lit The Season
14. Mannequin
15. Thank God For The Suffering
16. The Smoke Of Her Burning
17. End Of Daze

Red Ink/EPIC, realizing the band's shocking visual potential (Filth's unique stage show frequently includes stilt-walkers & fire-breathers), has commissioned a conceptual video for Damnation And A Day's first single, the gothic "Babalon AD (So Glad For The Madness)". The video was directed by Wiz (known for his work on Marilyn Manson's "Fight Song" & "Man That You Fear"), filmed in a derelict Jesuit seminary, and visually inspired by 120 Days of Sodom by the infamous Marquis De Sade. Fans can get a sneak peek of the video at the following location: http://www.theorderofthedragon.com/downloadvideo/

The next step in Cradle of Filth's plot for world domination is an extensive tour, hitting America shores in late Spring. The band is also confirmed to headline the infamous New England Metal And Hardcore Festival in Worcester, MA, as well as headline the second stage at the 2003 Ozzfest traveling festival. Armed with a 17-track platter of brilliant & menacing material of otherworldly proportions, no one would dare stand in their way.
