Damnation and a Day (subtitled From Genesis to Nemesis...) is the fifth studio album by Cradle of Filth. It features the 40-piece Budapest Film Orchestra and 32-piece Budapest Film Choir, is partly based on John Milton's epic poem Paradise Lost, and was Cradle's only full-length release for the major label Sony before they transferred to Roadrunner Records.
Narration on the first track of each section is by David McEwen, who played Kemper in Cradle of Fear and appeared in the video for Her Ghost in the Fog, miming Doug Bradley's vocals.
This is the first Cradle full length album to feature only one full-time guitar player, as former guitarist Gian Pyres quit the band shortly before the writing and recording process. Keyboardist Martin Powell played session guitars for the album.
In addition to the Miltonic arc the album also features stand-alone tracks such as the Nile tribute[4] "Doberman Pharaoh" and the Aleister Crowley-influenced "Babalon AD (So Glad For The Madness)".
The album spawned two DVD singles for the songs "Babalon AD (So Glad For The Madness)" and "Mannequin". The former was directed by Wiz (who had previously worked with Marilyn Manson), and was modelled on Pier Paolo Pasolini's notorious film Salò; an adaptation of the Marquis de Sade's The 120 Days of Sodom. The latter, reminiscent of the films of Jan Švankmajer, was directed by Thomas Mignone, and featured stop motion animation by George Higham.
Their cover of Cliff Richard's Devil Woman was originally recorded during the Damnation and a Day recordings, but only surfaced on the special edition of Nymphetamine in 2005, re-recorded and with some of the lyrics altered (feminine ways became nymphetamine ways). This was because the band was unhappy with the original recordings they did of the track
