English extreme metallers Cradle of Filth have signed a deal with Nuclear Blast ahead of the release of their hotly anticipated 11th studio album.
The album, titled Hammer Of The Witches, is due out sometime next year and will be the first featuring Gutiarists Richard Shaw and Ashok – replacing Paul Allender, who was sacked earlier this year, partly due to his commitments to his new band White Empress.
A statement from Dani Filth reveals: “Nuclear Blast owner Markus Staiger has been trying to snare the band ever since I flew over to see him way back in 1996 as a viable label option, after we left Cacophonous Records. He barely missed out due to the close proximity to the band of Music For Nations, the label that Cradle stayed with until 2001.
“For the full frontal assault we have planned for the awesome new album, Nuclear Blast are the perfect war stallion to carry us screaming into the heart of the next chapter of Cradle Of Filth’s dark, enigmatic history.”
