UK based metal icons Cradle of Filth have released the second single off their upcoming 12th studio album, Cryptoriana-The Seductiveness Of Decay. The album is set to come out September 22nd.
The video features the lyrics to the song being typed out really fast on a typewriter, while cutting to images of other portions of the lyrics, and terrifying gothic-like imagery. Truly a creative way to express the lyrics and the feeling of the song.
Band member Dani Filth commented on the song saying, “This track is one of my favorite songs from the new Cryptoriana album -aside from ‘Achingly Beautiful’, ‘Death And The Maiden’ and the title track- due to its very unique flavor and its vehement brutality. The culminative strike is especially very Dusk… and Her Embrace era Black Metal”.
