Sad news as Lindsay Schoolcraft, the longest-tenured keyboardist and backing vocalist in Cradle of Filth has departed the band.

The band has replacement selected, but not yet announced. Cradle is working on a new album, which Lindsay has been working on with them. It will be the follow up to Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness Of Decay, out now via their long-time label Nuclear Blast. Continue reading

Some good advice I received from my mentor in music criticism was to never underestimate or pigeonhole an artist. Cradle of Filth has made a twenty-five year career out of Black and Death Metal music supremacy, often covering the dark and all about that blasphemous life. Although she definitely has earned her place in that world as a member of that band, singer and multi-talented musician Lindsay Schoolcraft displays a wide array of gifts will not fit in a neat box for you to file and categorize. On her debut solo album Martyr (Self-Released), she satisfies her jones (and ours) for all types of Gothy Metal and Rock styles.
Entrancing Metal artist Lindsay Schoolcraft, best known for her work with Cradle of Filth and Antiqva, will release her début solo album Martyr tomorrow. The full album is streaming over at Metal Injection before you can buy it tomorrow. Co-written by Rocky Gray (Evanescence), featuring vocals from Xenoyr of Ne Obliviscaris, the album is a great blend of all of Lindsay’s influences and puts her many talents to the fore as a dynamic singer and composer. Jam it out now and be on the lookout for our review soon! Continue reading
