Full album title:
Godspeed on the Devil's Thunder - The Life and Crimes of Gilles De Rais

This is a concept album, based on the life of the infamous 15th century French nobleman, Gilles De Rais, who fought alongside Joan of Arc and accumulated great wealth before becoming a serial killer, sexual deviant and Satanist.

The title of the album derives from a valediction vocalist Dani Filth once used to sign a letter.

Music videos for "The Death of Love" and "Honey and Sulphur" were made.
