Release Date: 2009-02-11
British extreme metallers Cradle of Filth kicked off their North American tour with Satyricon and Septic Flesh on January 19; they're back on the road in support of their new album, Godspeed on the Devil’s Thunder. The follow up to Thornography, GOTDT is a conceptual album based on the well-documented, true-life fall from grace of a shadowy historical figure named Gilles de Rais. The wealthy French nobleman was one of Joan of Arc's brothers-in-arms, but was best known as a prolific serial killer who mixed prayers with his nightly murders and was an aspiring alchemist.
