Cradle of Filth To Release Eight Album Reissues

Grammy nominated Cradle Of Filth have been pioneers of extreme music since their debut in 1994 and have continued to evolve with each of their subsequent releases. Never shy of embracing the epic, Cradle have constantly sought to push the boundaries of their art and have continually refused to bow to convention or to conform to prevalent trends and fads. Despite this uncompromising stance, the band is still the most successful British heavy metal band since Iron Maiden with legions of fans around the globe. These rare and early reissues, some never officially released in North America, will now be available in Digi-Pak style packaging and are essential to the collection of any Cradle Of Filth or extreme metal fan.
