It was initially recorded as the band's second album for Cacophonous records following The Principle of Evil Made Flesh.
Cradle's relationship with Cacophonous subsequently collapsed, however: Acrimonious legal proceedings took up most of ,  and the original version of Dusk was shelved and later re-worked and re-recorded as the eventual Music For Nations release. Writing in The Gospel of Filth in , Dani indicated that these early recordings were merely demos, rather than a finished album:.
We reached a deal with Cacophonous whereby they got another recording from us [ V Empire ], and in return they agreed to cease the dispute we'd become entangled in with them. The material that we'd demoed for Dusk and Her Embrace needed the space and attention of a full album, so we saved it. Dani Filth revealed plans for a 20th anniversary release of the original Cacophonous recordings in , and a release date was officially announced in Filth told Team Rock:.
The title for the new release was Dusk It was released on CD and digital on July 8, Allender, the Ryan brothers and Kennedy all left the band before the version of Dusk From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Songs, Reviews, Credits, Awards: Retrieved 11 August Cradle of Filth — Dusk and Her Embrace: Retrieved 27 August Retrieved 30 August Retrieved 8 September Archived from the original on 7 May Their theatrical approach to the black metal genre was nothing new, but they turned it up a notch by cutting out much of the humor and bad special effects that groups like Mercyful Fate depended on and replaced them with a creepier, nastier stage show.
But unlike so many of the bands in this genre, they had the music to back it up, and Dusk and Her Embrace may be their finest moment.
What they did more than any other group is take the extreme playing style of the Norwegian black metal scene and apply a Sisters of Mercy style of melody to the singing. A hundred different metal bands tried to use goth flourishes in their music, but Cradle of Filth realized that you could make goth conform to heavy metal, not the other way around.
This results in some creepy material; just listen to "Heaven Torn Asunder" or "Malice Through the Looking Glass" to hear some of the most important black metal ever made.
What is even weirder is how catchy this music is. They really do a good job of incorporating memorable vocal lines and melodies into one of the least accessible genres of the 20th century. The keyboard intros and flourishes may be a little much for some listeners, but in the field of gothic European black metal, would you really expect anything less? With catchy songs, a brutal delivery, and a great gimmick, this is as good as underground metal gets. Along with Emperor , Faxed Head , and a few other pioneers, this band really helped the black metal genre to reappear after the death metal craze of the early '90s, but more than any other group, they also helped to put a twisted, ugly face on the genre for all to see.
Dani talks in a gothic voice and Sarah really shows what she can do on this song. Let me tell you, I am not a COF fanboy. The song's beautiful pianos, choirs and strings make a great music feast for the ear, and this is more than enough for me. Out of those 4 albums, Dusk and Her Embrace is the third and probably the best. For a guy that buys everything filthy he can get his hands on, this purchase did not disappoint. We also observe a change in the lyrics, Dani slowly replacing Satanism and Paganism with Vampirism.
