The band are still putting the final touches to the designs for all of the box's contents. These will be revealed soon.

"Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa" is scheduled for release on November 1 through Peaceville Records on the band's own AbraCadaver imprint (November 9 in North America via Nuclear Blast Records).

"Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa" is, in the words of Dani Filth, "without doubt the fastest and most brutal album we've created to date. As an acquaintance of the band so aptly noted, this is like 'IRON MAIDEN on crack in a graveyard of angels!' This album is CRADLE at our most sinister and darkened fairytale," continues Dani. "A gothic horror themed slay-ride of fervour and perversion; yet amidst the orchestral melodrama and lush, cinematic production, there sits stalwart a ravening beast of furious riffing, flesh ripping vocals and monstrous, unstoppable percussion."
