Cradle Of Filth Premiere “Achingly Beautiful” Lyric Video

Cradle Of Filth have premiered a lyric video for their new song “Achingly Beautiful.” This song is from the band’s new album “Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness Of Decay,” which will be released on September 22 via Nuclear Blast.

Dani Filth commented:

“Influenced by the stories of E.F Benson, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, H.Rider Haggard, Oscar Wilde, Arthur Machen and Algernon Blackwood to shame but a few, this song concerns itself with a spectral guest at a great masked ball who, (deeply embedded in his cruel libertine nature, attends merely for merciless, seductive sport), but instead discovers the woman of his dreams and both bewitching the other, finds in her his dark, immortal equal.

I love this song as it has a very old skool Cradle vibe for me, both lyrically and musically, and reeking hideously of the Vampiric, the dropdown section in the middle is pure ‘A Gothic Romance’.”

Cradle Of Filth Premiere “You Will Know The Lion By His Claw” Lyric Video

Cradle Of Filth have premiered a lyric video for their new song “You Will Know The Lion By His Claw.” This song is from the band’s new album “Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness Of Decay,” which will be released on September 22 via Nuclear Blast.

Dani Filth commented:

“This track is one of my favourite songs from the new ‘Cryptoriana‘ album – aside from ‘Achingly Beautiful’, ‘Death And The Maiden’ and the title track- due to its very unique flavour and its vehement brutality. The culminative strike is especially very ‘Dusk… and Her Embrace‘ era Black Metal…

Inspired by the works of H. Rider Haggard, a Victorian author who schooled in my home town of Ipswich, this song uses the railroad annexation of the Transvaal in Africa during the 19th century to paint a vision of the greedy machinations of man coming up against a furious, displaced natural foe, thus posing an allegory for the downtrodden, revolting.

I also have the Latin of this expression tattooed on my arm (due to being the usual supercilious Leo!).
The quote was made famous having been said in 1697 by Johann Bernoulli about Isaac Newton’s anonymously submitted solution to Bernoulli’s challenge regarding the Brachistochrone curve.

So… Enjoy. Indulge. Desire. Darken.”
