The mini-album CD starts off with an incredibly heavy song (after the intro track) called "Thank Your Lucky Scars" which is worth the price of admission alone. The track sounds a lot like "Darkly..." and Cradle truly delivers on the opening track. Brutal to say the least. Other highlights include an extended-length version of "Lilith Immaculate" which consists of the original song which now has a 2 minute long orchestral breakdown in the middle of the song, which sounds similar to the type of breakdown you'd hear on "Cruelty and the Beast" or "Damnation and a Day". Another interesting track is the remix of "Forgive Me Father (I Have Sinned)" by Rob C. of Anthrax. The remix isn't quite what you'd expect from a guy from Anthrax. It's basically a techno kind of remix. It's interesting, but may not appeal to all Cradle fans. There are also 3 tracks on this mini-album that are basically just demos of songs from "Darkly..." but they are labeled as "Elder Version(s)" and they are probably the least interesting part of the mini-album. "Evermore Darkly" closes with an orchestral rendition of the classic Cradle song "Summer Dying Fast", which will be featured on the upcoming Cradle Of Filth orchestral compilation, "Midnight In the Labyrinth".Read more ›
Onto the DVD, Venus Diversa, which is what makes Evermore Darkly... worth purchasing. It begins with the promo video for `Lilith Immaculate'. Up next is the You Can't Polish A Turd... But You Can Roll It In Glitter rockumentary. Filmed primarily in Russia, with a couple of quick stops in Europe, it completely demystifies the notion that touring is one big party; in fact it painstakingly portrays how brutal jet lag and sleep deprivation due to hectic travel schedules can really be.Read more ›
Thank Your Lucky Scars isn't a bad track, but it's not a "standout" either. It's worth having simply for completionist purposes and is probably the reason most people will pick this up.
The three "Elder" versions Of the Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa tracks are rather uninteresting. Nothing noticeably different between the demos to make them worth having/listening to. Hearing Dani whisper Caroline Campbell's lines in the Forgive Me Father demo was unexpected though, and made me laugh a bit on my first listen.
Extended version of Lilith Immaculate is good for a few listens, nothing too spectacular. Again, worth having for completionist purposes alone.
I really like the beat of Forgive Me Father (I'm In A Trance), but just doesn't work well with the song... seems like it would be tough to remix Cradle well in that style.
Summer Dying Fast ('Midnight In The Labyrinth' breadcrumb trail) is preview/teaser for Cradle of Filth's next release, an orchestral CD titled Midnight in the Labyrinth. If you're into orchestral stuff/movie scores then you'll enjoy this. It works really well as a closing track for the album.
The DVD documents the part of a tour in support of Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa. It kind of rushes along, but as Dani says while setting up the DVD they left out all of the boring stuff.
-Contains the video for Lilith Immaculate but not the video for Forgive Me Father (I Have Sinned), which is kind of disappointing.Read more ›

|Difference between US version and the European Import?||
Apparently not. There's just one edition (content-wise) according to MetalStorm.ee and Metal-Archives.com.
In Metal-Archives, if there's more than one edition of an album the details of different content are mainly, if not strictly, in the 'additional notes' section.
