Lindsay Schoolcraft (ex-Cradle Of Filth) has released a new song titled “New World.” The track, which features Fabienne Erni (Eluveitie) and Jen Majura (Evanescence), can be streamed below:
“What happens when you take Gothic Metal and fuse it with Folk Metal? You get a duet between Fabienne Erni and myself that includes a killer guitar solo from Jen Majura of Evanescence!
‘New World’ is out now and just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. The best way you can support me and the team is by heading over to my Bandcamp page and naming your price 🙏✨
I wrote this harp driven, heavy track during my isolation of 2021 about our world’s events. The song’s theme manifested into a dark lullaby with Celtic-fantasy influences.
My intention is that this track sparks hope into the hearts of those who are feeling helpless right now. That we are reminded all good deeds, no matter how big or little, matter and make a difference. That good always prevails over evil and we are stronger than we think. 🕯”
Lindsay Schoolcraft (ex-Cradle Of Filth) has premiered a new video for her new song “Twin Flame.” You can check that out below:
“If you know about the Twin Flame phenomenon it is because you’ve experienced it yourself. You meet someone that you feel you’ve known forever. Everything changes around you: your life, your thoughts, your path and purpose. Intensely romantic or intensely painful, they are the mirror of your soul and ignite you to “wake up” to who you truly are.
This song came to me over the summer of 2021 and was recorded and released on my Patreon not long after. Some songs you can sit on for a while, but this one was on loop every night in my head, constantly reminding me that it wanted to be birthed. Once I had connected with Phantasma Photography over Twitter, the music video followed not long after and with so much ease. It’s like it was all meant to be.
After deep diving into Twin Flame experiences shared all over the globe, Chris (Phantasma) and I started drawing up the visuals for the music video. Along with Chris’s unique visual style and what resources we had available, we were able to create a smokey dreamland where the two halves of the Twin Flame long to find each other again.
While I’m usually known for releasing Gothic Metal tracks, it’s abundantly clear that this song, while Ethereal and Gothic, is a bit of a departure from metal. While I have plans to release more metal tracks in 2022, on Patreon I’m exploring other avenues of dark music. I am a huge fan of electronic and Trip-Hop artists like Depeche Mode, Massive Attack, and VAST and that influence shines through here.
Creating Twin Flame was a new journey with sharing the whole creative process over Patreon. It took a bit of discipline to get out of my head, slow down, and document and share every step, but my Patrons truly appreciated it and because of that I know they feel a special connection to this track too.”
Former Cradle Of Filth members Lindsay Schoolcraft and Sarah Jezebel Deva have joined forces for a new song titled “Stolen Light.” You can purchase that track on Bandcamp.
“This song is about taking back your power after enduring a long and grueling abusive relationship. Often verbal and emotional abuse is overlooked compared to physical violence, but the after effects have proven to be equally as fatal in the long run. Sarah and I bonded over our shared struggles we’ve faced in the music industry and this song is an ode to our perseverance, strength, and triumph in taking back our careers and love of singing and creating music.
This track could have not been possible without the mega talents of Tyler Williams at Monolithic Productions and orchestrator Spencer Creaghan. Thank you always for putting up with me and my crazy-ambitious projects.
And last but not least, to Sarah. For being a fighter, a champion, a legend, and an all around awesome person and brilliant artist. You praise me too much for your return, but I haven’t thanked you enough for being such a pivotal influence on me and a singer and musician. From a distance your voice has pulled me through some darker days and now your friendship has changed me for the better. Thank you for inspiring ‘Stolen Light’ and for all that you have given us through your voice, lyrics, and performances.”
Lindsay Schoolcraft (ex-Cradle Of Filth) has teamed up with Christopher Caouette for a new single titled “I May Be One.” You can purchase that track on Bandcamp. Schoolcraft commented:
“This collaboration, while a new venture, has been such a pleasure to create with Chris. When Chris sent me the first version I knew this song was about hope and finding justice and peace. I then created an Elven Warrior Princess character to write the song around. I truly do believe that one person can make a difference and that’s what I feel this song is about. The final touch of adding guitars and drums really brought this whole track together.”
Lindsay Schoolcraft (ex-Cradle of Filth) and Gaia Guarda have joined forces for a new song titled “I Didn’t Break.” That track is from the new “C² Underground Music Special” compilation, which will be available on September 17. Guarda told Outburn the following:
“‘I Didn’t Break’ was born in the depths of the uncertainty of 2020 by two stubborn musicians that decided to do a collaboration, even though they had no access to the studio due to the pandemic restrictions. I learned to record in my bathtub, and give a second life to a pantyhose that I had lying around as a pop filter. The fact that the production was such a big challenge makes the song even more special to us. We hope you like it as much as we do! And I do recommend that listen to it while taking a bath, so you can imagine my homemade setup!”
Lindsay Schoolcraft (ex-Cradle Of Filth) has premiered a new video for the title track of her new harp album “Worlds Away.” That effort will be released on October 9.
“‘Worlds Away’ was written about feeling isolated and as far away as possible from someone you love and don’t know how to tell them your feelings for them. When the pandemic struck I was inspired to finish this piece that was laying dormant for quite some time and then when the opportunity struck to film a music video I knew right away this was the song. The concept to this music video is being out in the middle of no where and feeling secluded. While any of your attempts to communicate to people aren’t possible, all that exists are the feelings you have left inside and that’s what keeps your hoping for better days to come. I feel like anyone can relate to that after the year we’ve all been through.”

Lindsay Schoolcraft (Cradle Of Filth) is streaming her new album “Martyr” in full via Metal Injection. That effort was co-written by ex-Evanescence drummer Rocky Gray and it will officially be released on October 7. Schoolcraft commented:
“Martyr is a tribute to all the music I love and everything I’ve wanted to create as a solo artist. I never thought I’d be able to work with the likes of Rocky Gray and all the talents that appear on this album, but, alas, here they are! I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I did enjoy breathing life into these heartfelt and turbulent pieces.”
Lindsay Schoolcraft (Cradle Of Filth) has premiered a lyric video for her new song “Where I Fall.” This track will appear on her new album “Martyr.” That effort was co-written by ex-Evanescence drummer Rocky Gray and it will be released on October 7.
Lindsay Schoolcraft (Cradle Of Filth) has premiered a lyric video for her new song “See The Light.” This track features Xenoyr (Ne Obliviscaris) and it will appear on Schoolcraft’s new album “Martyr.” That effort was co-written by ex-Evanescence drummer Rocky Gray and it will be released on October 7.
“I knew I wanted to have a duet on this album somewhere and the more I completed composing ‘See The Light’ with Rocky Gray, the more I knew Xenoyr needed to appear on it. Sometimes, if you want to say something loudly it has to be screamed harshly, and the more I reflected on the lyrics, the more I heard many of our shared conversations. This song is open to interpretation, but I wrote it back in 2016 when it was prevalent that greed and prejudice were more valued globally over compassion and doing the right thing. Those difficult times for the world inspired this song greatly.”
