Cruelty and the Beast is the third studio album by English extreme metal band Cradle of Filth. It was released on 5 May 1998 by record label Music for Nations. Cruelty and the Beast is a concept album based on the legend of the Hungarian "blood countess" Elizabeth Báthory. The album features guest narration on certain passages by Ingrid Pitt in-character as Báthory, a role she first played in the Hammer film Countess Dracula in 1971.
Those who follow Cradle of Filth likely know that Cruelty and the Beast introduced the band to North America and brought the group across the pond for the first time. Filth refers to the project as "an anatomical remix, not a remaster," and tinkered with Atkins at Grindstone Studios in Suffolk, England. The reissue is tentatively scheduled for release this fall
Cruelty brought thee orchids From the bowels of the abyss. Once upon atrocity when midwitches stifled cries And carved abortive runes in reddened wombs Exhumed by scrying eyes Madness came upon Her like an amourous lover's seed Lifesblood splashed upon Her skin In gouts torture unleashed. And to Her dead reflection Twas as if Her pallor gleamed Like an angel's warmed by candles Where erotic stains had cleaved So demons dragged this libertine Lusts screaming for release Upon the flesh of maidens preened As canvas for caprice.
