Line-up (members)

  • Dani Filth : Vocals, Lyrics
  • Paul Ryan : Guitars
  • Paul Allender : Guitars
  • Robin Graves : Bass
  • Darren J. White : Drums
  • Benjamin Ryan : Keyboards
Recorded and mixed in three days at Portacabin Studios, Westerfield, Suffolk on 4 tracks.

Unlike the other demo releases, this is NOT death metal. This musical style is a very similar style to that played on the album The Principle of Evil Made Flesh but with a rougher production and less intelligible vocals.

The cover says the demo is a promo for Goetia.

The demo was officialy re-released by Mordgrimm on May 5th, 2014. This remastered new version (engineered in Turan Studio in Oxford) includes as bonus the song "Spattered in Faeces", the only surviving track from the Goetia sessions, the unreleased track "Devil Mayfair (Advocatus Diaboli)", recorded at Samhain 1992, plus other three tracks from that session, along with two short instrumental pieces from the band's former keyboardist, Ben Ryan. New cover artwork features paintings of Daniel P. Carter.

Available in the following formats:
* Gatefold vinyl edition: 666 copies in three two-colour 180gm vinyl variants limited to 222 copies each: orange/black, blue/grey and grey/black; each copy have a booklet limited to this edition, with a foreword by Dani Filth and previously unseen photos from the band vaults.
* Limited box set edition: only 66 copies available, including 180 gm double vinyl in three two-colour versions, digipack compact version, limited booklet with lyrics, photos, foreword, hand embossed black card box, three art prints, exclusive poster, logo patch, t-shirt.

Comments

level   (75/100)
This was more in the Death Metal section... Why the hell is it marked "Symphonic Black Metal"?
level   (45/100)
크래들 오브 필쓰의 초기작들은 좋아하기에 데모 앨범 네 장도 억지로 구해서 들었지만.... 데스메탈은 영 아닌듯..
level   (60/100)
여기까지의 총 4장의 데모엘범은 COF가 원래는 데스메탈 기반 음악이었다는것을 보여준다. 음악 자체도 굉장히 구질구질하고, 연주력 빼면 별로 들어볼 건덕지도 없다.
