UK’s legendary extreme metal icons CRADLE OF FILTH had to push back the release of the first single off their eagerly awaited 12th album, »Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness Of Decay«, for one more week. ‘Heartbreak And Seance’ will now be released on July 11. The pre-orders for the album will coincide with the single release.
The band recently shot a music video for the song which will also be released on the above mentioned date. Find some photos from the set below this message.
Commented Dani Filth:
“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…”
»Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness Of Decay« will be released on September 22 via Nuclear Blast. Find the stunning cover artwork by Artūrs Bērziņš below. Bērziņš is the mastermind behind the new record’s artwork, photography and videography – 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”.

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