Cradle of Filth have teamed up with the fretful ghouls at Vorona Instruments to present two incredible guitars based on the band’s infamous Midian and Vempire or Dark Faerytales in Phallustein albums. Well, Vempire is technically an EP, but a damn fine one at that!
"Handmade to order and intended for the serious connoisseur, these two weapons of mass disruption convey the essence of the albums they are named after; fantastical, vicious and darkly to behold."
Each guitar has a unique serial number for authenticity and come encoffined in cases bearing the COF and Vorona logos.

Be part of the limited run of our most recent creation, welcome to the Vempire!"
