After it being pushed back for 1 week Cradle Of Filth finally released the music video for ”Heartbreak And Seance” from their upcoming album ‘Cryptoriana’ which will be available on the 22th of September this very year via Nuclear Blast. This song is the first song to be ever released from their long awaited 12th album and it shows which way they might be taking. Really excited about it!
Cradle Of Filth has build up a legacy of 11th full albums and ‘Cryptoriana The Seductiveness Of Decay’ or short ‘Cryptoriana’ might just be the one that will change their path forever. It all started with their demo ‘A Pungent And Sexual Miasma’, this demo got released in the year 1992 which is also the year the demo ‘Involking The Unclean’ came out. These demos are a must to check out since they really show the roots of this band. 2 years later they released their debut album ‘The Principle Of Evil Made Flesh’ which is already evil sounding and even more when looking at the dark lyrics. After that they have created several albums, EP’s and demos as well yet they have always delivered nothing but pure creativeness and ofcourse some darkness to go with it. They have changed their sound multiple times but this time might change everything so take a good look at the just released music video!
Before clicking on the video read what Dani had to say about it!
“Working with such an artistic director as Artūrs Bērziņš was indeed an honour, as the video shoot was very extensively planned, involving a myriad of extras and crew, make-up girls and set builders, a crow, some well-behaved snakes and a considerable amount of snow, candles, water, trees, naked bodies, lamentable mourners, as well as all being submerged in suitably gothic landscapes and vistas. And the fact that we travelled to Riga in Latvia to film it was also very unique and interesting. The video itself is fantastic, drawing from the darkly erotic imagery of the album artwork and bringing it to richly technicolored classical life. We had such a blast shooting it, as the accompanying photos attest to…”
The stunning album covert artwork has been created by Artūrs Bērziņš, he is the mind behind the new record’s artwork, photography and videography. He has been proclaimed as a “sacred monster of Latvian postmodernism”!
