Product description

At last, after more than 20 years, Total Fucking Darkness, the infamous third demo from the U.K.'s notorious Cradle of Filth, is being officially released.
Featuring artwork from the twisted visions of Radio One Presenter and Occult Artist, Daniel Carter, the release will include some tracks previously unreleased by the band. Frater Nihil, the founder of Cacophonous Records, the label that first signed Cradle of Filth, got together with Dani Filth and Paul Ryan (former guitarist and now in The King is Blind) to bring fans of the band, both old and new, a remastered version of the demo along with material that had been sitting in the vaults for 20 years. They entered Turan Studio in Oxford and with the help of the engineer (who has worked on everything from Emperor to Thin Lizzy) brought the old recordings a new lease of life.

Being a long time fan of the band, I was eagerly awating this release and I wasn't too disappointed! The only thing that lets the side down for me is that the TFD demo sounds no different from the version I already have (supplied to me by an ex-member of the band from around the time of it's release) on cd. I had hoped that it had been cleaned up a little, but on the other hand, it's good to hear the songs as they were recorded and it's a brilliant demo too!

The rehersal tracks are of good quality and it's nice to hear the long lost songs again on an official release, rather than random bootlegs. But, it's the track from the long lost "Goetia" album that is by far the standout track here! As I say, being a long time fan, I know all about the lost album and how the studio tapes were wiped when the record label couldn't pay for the studio time. I, like many, many other fans always thought that we'd never get to hear a peep from this album, so to hear a full song in top quality is a big thing for us! We were always told that the album had a more "death metal" feel to it and it's very obvious from this track that it would have been totally different from "Principle..." It's really heavy, very, very fast and has some big keyboard parts too. A real and very nice surprise! It's such a shame that we'll (probably) never get to hear the rest of the album!

Well worth picking up by long time fans, but I feel the kids who think that Nymphetamine is Cradle finest hour will hate this release as it's FAR removed from what Cradle of Filth are now.

A funny release this. Everybody already has an opinion on Cradle of Filth, so you would think the only people who would purchase a previously unreleased demo would be completionists who are already huge fans. And those fans will no doubt be fans of the Filth due to their album output over the past 20 years.

What this album is, however, is absolutely nothing like anything the band went to put to tape. This is pure unadulterated death metal and it's bloody brilliant. It reminds me of early Prositute Disfigurement; low guttural growls, low low guitars. It shows demos of songs which would go onto make it in much different fashion on The Principle of Evil Made Flesh and for my money, they sound so much better here than they do with more polish.

When I listen to this album I just wish that Crade had continued in the death metal vein instead of opting for symphonic over-the-top black metal. Sure, they wouldn't have had the commercial success they went on to have, but the quality would have been so much higher. And that comes from someone who loves everything the band has ever put out. I just think they sound even better in this style.

If you have been put off CoF by their output since Midian, and you enjoy old school death metal then give this a go, it might open your eyes to how great this band were in the early days.

If you are a fan of their regular output, however, you might not find much to love with this release, other than for historical purposes.

I loved it! It brought back some of their older songs and gave it a more professional edge.
