The Manticore and Other Horrors

The Manticore and Other Horrors by Cradle of Filth
Released: Oct 2012
Label: Nuclear Blast
Caterwauling even by bag-of-cats standards of these Brit Halloweenies, the Filthy ones' 10th album nonetheless has milliseconds that sort of stand out. Between dainty opening and closing funeral-parlor instrumentals, there's "For Your Vulgar Delectation" (puke sounds and sex pants); "Pallid Reflection" (pop-punk jangle and some semblance of chorus hook plus fretting about a "bourgeois creature") and "Siding With the Titans" (something about "rabbit's flesh"). Bonus titles are inspired by a French decadent poet and a Manchester theosophist; other tracks, apparently, by whips and chains.
