Cradle Of Filth – Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa (2010)

Darkly Darkly is a hideously-titled later effort from Cradle Of Filth, in what I refer to as the post-Thornography lull of disinteresting releases (Devil’s Thunder aside). Darkly is just that – dark, almost artificially so. Cradle’s sense of mystery and evil is something that permeates most of it’s musical output over the years, however here on Darkly Darkly the atmosphere seems forced and cheesy, and a little crap, to be honest.

Musically, the band are tight and proficiently sound. There are no complaints here. Its just as a whole, this record is a big miss, for me at least.
