Extreme metal legends Cradle of Filth have announced their first live album in over twenty years, Trouble and Their Double Lives. Referred to as a time capsule to the intensity of their live performances spanning 2014-2019, the live album is scheduled to arrive on April 28 via Napalm Records. Mixed and mastered by the talented Scott Atkins at Grindstone Studios in Suffolk, England, this live onslaught features not only fan favorites like “Nymphetamine (Fix),” “Bathory Aria,” and “Blackest Magick in Practice,” but also two bonus tracks and two brand new songs, “She is a Fire” and “Demon Prince Regent.” And speaking of new tracks, Cradle of Filth have released a video for “She is a Fire” to celebrate the upcoming live album announcement.  

 

Mastermind Dani Filth comments:

“This track and the other original track on this album, ‘Demon Prince Regent’, were both written after the recording of Existence Is Futile and present a perfect, but not necessarily related, bridge between our Nuclear Blast days and the forthcoming album on Napalm Records. It was always intended to be a double album, so we just thought, ‘f**k it! Let’s cram some original material on there as well! The absolute worst of both worlds! The song itself is about the epitome of burning passion; the dark inspiration of love and the creature that has ignited it. I would say a live record was long overdue, judging by the 20-odd year gap between this and our previous offering! It also serves as a great accompaniment to the forthcoming co-headlining ‘Double Trouble Live’ tour(s) with Devildriver, and strangely enough is also a notable gap-filler whilst we prepare our debut album for Napalm Records, due for mass excretion in 2024.”
