Back in 1996, Cradle of Filth released an album titled “Dusk…and Her Embrace”. However, the album that fans currently possess is not the original Dusk album. The original “Dusk…and Her Embrace” album was recorded in 1995 under the name “The Original Sin”.

The Original Sin” album was recorded with the same lineup from the album “The Principle of Evil Made Flesh” and the EP “Vempire”, however, the band was not happy back then with the record company they were signed to, so the band split up and “The Original Sin” was never released due to a lawsuit.

The album will be released on July 8, 2016 via Cacophonous Records.

Despite the band announcing the release date and unveiling the album cover art, it is still unclear whether the band will be releasing a rerecorded, remastered, or the very original album.

The Original Sin Tracklisting:
  • “Macabre, This Banquet”
  • “Nocturnal Supremacy”
  • “Heaven Torn Asunder”
  • “Dusk And Her Embrace”
  • “A Gothic Romance”
  • “The Graveyard By Moonlight”
  • “Funeral In Carpathia”
  • “Beauty Slept In Sodom”
  • “The Haunted Shores Of Avalon”
  • “Carmilla’s Masque”
  • “A Gothic Romance” (Bonus Demo Track)
  • “Nocturnal Supremacy” (Bonus Demo Track)

This is not the first time Cradle of Filth decides to resurrect an album from their (very) early years. In 2014, the band rereleased a remastered version of their 1992 demo “Total Fucking Darkness”. Will “The Original Sin” have the “Classic” sound of the band as heard on the previously mentioned release, or will it be a modern sound like the one heard on their 2015 release “Hammer of the Witches”?
