  CRADLE OF FILTH RELEASE BRAND NEW PHOTOS FROM LATEST VIDEO SHOOT
5th July 2017



cradle of filth

Cradle Of Filth have changed the release date of the first single from their eagerly awaited twelth album, 'Cryptoriana - The Seductiveness Of Decay'.

Debut single 'Heartbreak And Seance' will now be released on July 11th, and the pre-orders for the album will go live on the same day.

The band recently shot a music video for 'Heartbreak And Séance’, which will also be released on July 11th and all the photos in this article are brand new, just released and from that shoot.

Cradle Of Filth mainman Dani Filth told us:

"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 technicoloured classical life. We had such a blast shooting it, as the accompanying photos attest to..."

'Cryptoriana - The Seductiveness Of Decay' will be released on September 22nd via Nuclear Blast and the stunning cover artwork by Artūrs Bērziņš can be seen at the top of this article.

Bērziņš is the mastermind behind the new record's artwork, photography and videography and is best known for his defiant neo-symbolism raster graphics and oil paintings; postmodern interpretations of classic myths. He has been proclaimed as a "sacred monster of Latvian postmodernism".

'Cryptoriana - The Seductiveness Of Decay' was recorded at Grindstone Studios, Suffolk by the very honourable Scott Atkins, esq. who has been the resident go-to producer for Cradle Of Filth for several albums.

Dani Filth sat in during the mix, serving up flaming mugs of teas, making the studio couch his own and lending his ears when necessary.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
