Extreme metal band Cradle Of Filth has announced that they will be releasing a remastered edition of their third demo Total F*cking Darkness, which was originally released over 20 years ago. The reissue will come as a gatefold double LP as well as a digipak CD via Mordgrimm this Spring.

Direct from the press release: “Given new life at Turan Studio in Oxford with the aid of engineer Tim Turan (who has worked on everything from Emperor to Thin Lizzy), Total F*cking Darkness commences with “Spattered In Faeces”, the only surviving track from the now mythical Goetia sessions, followed on Side A and the rest of Side B with the recordings from the Total F*cking Darkness demo. Side C offers up another previously unreleased hymn with “Devil Mayfair (Advocatus Diaboli)”, recorded in a rehearsal studio on Samhain 1992, followed by three more tracks from the same session, a further hint of the material that would have featured on the aborted Goetia album. Two short instrumental movements from former Cradle Of Filth keyboardist Ben Ryan are also included.”

    That’s cool. I probably won’t buy it but it’s good to see them go back to the start and remaster stuff.

    I’m behind on my CoF albums. I only recently got Godspeed on the Devil’s Thunder and wasn’t too impressed. It was better than Thornography and Damnation and a Day but still nothing beats Dusk… And Her Embrace and Cruelty and the Beast.

    I just love those albums, particularly A Gothic Romance and Beneath the Howling Stars. Such great stories.
