CRADLE OF FILTH - release new single and music video for "Necromantic Fantasies"!

CRADLE OF FILTH - release new single! - 2021-09-16

2021-09-16 - After shaking the world in its foundation with the announcement of their 13th manifesto, "Existence Is Futile", that will see the light of the day on October 22nd, CRADLE OF FILTH gather again to bring their next sacrifice to the devilish forces of Dark Metal: Today, the band reveals the second single of their new album to come - "Necromantic Fantasies".

Directed by Vicente Cordero, this video was shot back-to-back with his previous work for the band, the horribly apocalyptic 'Crawling King Chaos', though both are remarkably contrasting.

Dani Filth had this to say of the latest video to enter the Cradle catalogue:
"This is a very different video from its predecessor, sporting more of a narrative amid leaning back toward a dark Victorian gothic vibe, showcasing the second of many unique tracks on this, our 13th album.
It’s very cinematic, much like Crawling King Chaos, but walking a much more 'dark faerytale' path. The director Vicente has done such an amazing job bringing the storyline together with the band and the incredible sets. It looks gorgeous. And the song is pretty good too!"

Pieced together in isolation, at Grindstone Studios in Suffolk with studio guru Scott Atkins (Devilment/Benediction/Vader), the band's latest chef-d'oeuvre is a pitch-black, perverse and at times absurdly brutal and extreme masterpiece following a truly nihilistic concept:

"The album is about existentialism, existential dread and fear of the unknown," frontman Dani Filth explains. "The concept wasn’t created by the pandemic. We’d written it long before that began and it is really but the tip of the mountain as far as the way the world is headed, you know? I guess the title, »Existence Is Futile«, does sound a little morbid. But again, it’s more about recognising that truth and saying that everything is permitted because nothing really matters, which mimics the occultist Aleister Crowley’s maxim. We all know we’re going to die, so we might as well indulge life while we possess it. The final track on the album – 'Us, Dark, Invincible' – really drives that point home. Also, the artwork for this record was created by the Latvian visionary Arthur Berzinsh, who also dressed the last two albums, and that reeks of the exceedingly beautiful yet apocalyptic too."

Diehard fans will be thrilled to learn that horror icon Doug 'Pinhead' Bradley makes a welcome return to the CRADLE fold, lending his dulcet tones to the band's most politically astute song to date, the epic 'Suffer Our Dominion' as well as the album bonus track 'Sisters Of The Mist', which is the conclusion to the 'Her Ghost In The Fog' trilogy that started over 20 years ago on the infamous and classic "Midian".
