Suffolk, England – 1991. Darkness manifests itself to the world of the living in the form of CRADLE OF FILTH. 26 years and eleven studio albums later this looming leviathan is back to haunt the dreams of mankind yet again with their twelfth  studio album entitled “Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness Of Decay” (Nuclear Blast Records).
