Extreme Metal Icons Cradle Of Filth Sign Worldwide Contract With Napalm Records

Austrian rock and metal empire Napalm Records is thrilled to announce their exciting new partnership with English extreme metal titans CRADLE OF FILTH, who have just signed a worldwide contract with the label!

Positioned firmly at the top of the extreme black metal genre, CRADLE OF FILTH – led and revolutionized by iconic frontman Dani Filth – reign supreme as one of the most revered, formative and notorious names in the scene, and are undeniably responsible for breaking ground for many of today’s top metal artists with their trademark mixture of grim blackened heaviness, macabre theatricality and scintillating gothic style. The rule of Filth began in 1991, followed by the unleashing of 1994’s The Principle Of Evil Made Flesh – humble beginnings that expanded into cinematic classics like Cruelty And The Beast and Midian.

Now, Napalm Records is honored to deliver the band’s haunting hallmark to the masses as their musical panorama reaches into the future.

CRADLE OF FILTH mastermind Dani Filth says:
“It is with great expectation and excitement that we announce our move to Napalm Records, having seen and heard a great deal of complimentary things about the label, which in turn leads us to believe that this will be the perfect nesting ground for Cradle Of Filth in 2022 and beyond. 
We’d like to thank all our fans for their continued support and trust in us doing the right thing for the band and its music. 

All hail the eternal ‘Filth!”

Thomas Caser, CEO, Napalm Records adds:
“We are thrilled to welcome the most influential and iconic extreme metal band to our ever-growing Napalm Records family. Being a fan of the band since their very first album, it is with great honor and excitement that we’re able to work with them from now on! We are ready to conquer the metal world with Cradle Of Filth!”
