A Map of All Our Failures is a further voyage into the darkest depths of humanity, religion, folklore, love and death.

Cradle of Filth will release their tenth studio album The Manticore & Other Horrors on Oct. 30. It's perfect timing for the black metal band, since the Halloween season fits their aesthetic. The always nefarious frontman Dani Filth said, "This is our tenth commandment in metal. We have diversified and kept alive the spirit of this band and breathed it into something that I can proudly say, slays like an absolute motherfucker. The Manticore is coming... Long live the Filth!" Cradle of Filth will spread its darkness upon European lands with a tour throughout November and December. Mwuhahaha. [Via Press Release]

All That Remains singer Phil Labonte will appear on NBC Sports Network's 3-Gun Nation. As a gun enthusiast, which is a controversial stance in the wake of Batman: The Dark Knight Rises shootings in Colorado and the Sikh Temple shootings in Wisconsin this summer, Labonte is joining 3-GN host Mark Willis, also a singer himself, for a season-long, head-to-head challenge. It features the two lead singers receiving instructional sessions from pro 3-Gunners while comparing their individual progress throughout the experience.
Labonte said, "I love my music, but when I'm not on tour, I spend a lot of my time shooting. I have a lot of friends in the firearm industry, and I enjoy promoting the Second Amendment however I can. I'm pretty new to 3-Gun so I'm on a major learning curve; however I can honestly say I'm pretty much addicted to it now." Music featured in the show will include songs from the forthcoming new studio album from All That Remains, A War You Cannot Win. The band's seventh studio album will be released this fall via Razor & Tie /Prosthetic.
The show airs Sunday mornings in August on NBC Sports Network. [Via Press Release]
