To celebrate Record Store Day (which is tomorrow, April 21), Cradle Of Filth will be releasing Midnight In The Labyrinth. This album sees the UK extreme metal group “reinventing” select songs from their first four albums with the help of orchestras and choirs. In other words, if you ever wondered what a Cradle Of Filth song sounded like with an orchestra in place of guitars or drums, then you’re in luck.
We previously heard the orchestra rendition of “Summer Dying Fast” on 2011 EP Evermore Darkly. And today, Terrorizor has premiered the Midnight In The Labyrinth version of “A Gothic Romance (Red Roses for the Devil’s Whore).” To be honest, we’re not entirely sure how to feel about the orchestra version. With that said, it is impressive to hear how it’s transition from the original.
Give the new orchestra version of “A Gothic Romance (Red Roses for the Devil’s Whore)” a listen in the stream after the jump (courtesy of Terrorizer) and just for yourself.
