After being forced to postpone four shows due to visa issues, CRADLE OF FILTH‘s long-awaited Inquisitional Torture North American Tour 2016 is finally underway! The debaucherous trek kicked off in Charlotte, North Carolina Sunday evening and will run through March 8th, razing twenty-three cities with an included appearance at this year’s 70000 Tons Of Metal cruise. Support is being provided by Butcher Babies and Ne Obliviscaris. Tickets are available now at THIS LOCATION.
CRADLE OF FILTH is touring in support of their latest album, Hammer Of The Witches, brought to fruition in Britain’s Witch County, in darkest rural Suffolk at the reputedly haunted Grindstone Studios. The album’s title is named after the “Malleus Maleficarum,” a medieval document of guidelines regarding the persecution and torture of witches – but CRADLE OF FILTH‘s title version is more retributory: It’s the Hammer Of The Witches; the hammer is in the witches’ hands and it’s payback time.

CRADLE OF FILTH have cast a commanding and macabre shadow across the metal scene for nearly a quarter of a century. Armed with their trademark, cross-pollinated assault that taps into myriad strands of sonic extremity and morbid opulence, they have steadily conquered the entire world, unleashing a malevolent slew of classic albums along the way. From the raw and rambunctious savagery of their 1994 debut The Principle Of Evil Made Flesh to the wickedly monstrous, technicolor bombast of 2012’s The Manticore & Other Horrors, the CRADLE ethos and aesthetic has had a huge impact on the evolution of metal, the band’s insatiable appetite for performing live and frontman Dani Filth’s unerring charisma and sense of occasion ensuring that they have established a powerful and enduring connection with Hell-bound acolytes everywhere.
