Cradle Of Filth have released a lyric video for their new track Achingly Beautiful.
It’s the latest material taken from the band’s upcoming album Cryptoriana - The Seductiveness Of Decay, which will arrive on September 22 via Nuclear Blast. They previously issued a promo for Heartbreak And Seance and a lyric promo for You Will Know The Lion By His Claw.
Frontman Dani Filth says: “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 school Cradle Of Filth vibe for me, both lyrically and musically, and reeking hideously of the vampiric, the dropdown section in the middle is pure A Gothic Romance.”
Cryptoriana - The Seductiveness Of Decay is available for pre-order (opens in new tab).
