An orange 180g vinyl version Cradle Of Filth’s 2001 Black Metal masterpiece.
‘Bitter Suites to Succubi’ followed on from the highly successful ‘Midian’ album released on Music For Nations in 2000, and further established the band’s meteoric rise to the forefront of British Metal in the early 2000’s.
‘Bitter Suites…’ contains original works such as fan-favourite ‘Born in a Burial Gown’, along with the band’s trademark grandiose sweeping gothic instrumental passages, plus a selection of reworked tracks from Cradle of Filth’s debut, the ferocious ‘The Principle of Evil Made Flesh’.
Overall, this is a supreme example of high-calibre extreme blackened Metal, accompanied by mainman Dani Filth’s accomplished lyrics and poetic narrative.
The album was recorded at New Rising Studios, UK and was engineered & mixed by Doug Cook.
Alongside vocalist Dani Filth, the band line-up notably featured Paul Allender (now of White Empress) on guitars, Adrian Erlandsson (of At the Gates & Paradise Lost fame) on drums, plus Martin Powell (formerly of My Dying Bride) on keys.
