Cradle Of Filth have released a making-of video showing how they created the promo for latest track Heartbreak And Seance.

The Arturs Berzins-directed video was unveiled earlier this month and is the first track taken from the band’s upcoming 12th studio album Cryptoriana - The Seductiveness Of Decay, which will arrive on September 22 via Nuclear Blast.

Speaking about the video, vocalist Dani Filth said: “Working with such an artistic director as Arturs Berzins was indeed an honour.

“The video shoot was very extensively planned, involving 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.”

He added: “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 is available for pre-order (opens in new tab).
