Cradle of Filth have announced their 13th studio album “Existence Is Futile” for October 22, and the second single from this album, “Necromantic Fantasies”, was also released as a video.
“This is a pretty different video from its predecessor, because the emphasis is on a narrative that relies on dark Victorian Gothic, which brilliantly portrayed the second of many unique tracks on this, our 13th album. The video has a cinematic flair, similar to “Crawling King Chaos”, but in the style of “darker fairy tales”. Director Vicente, combining the story with the band and the amazing sets, did a great job. It looks beautiful. And the song is pretty good, too. ”, said the frontman Dani Filth.
“The album is about existentialism, existential fear and fear of the unknown”, Dani explained. “The concept was not created by a pandemic. We wrote it long before it started, but a pandemic is the tip of the cotton bud as long as the world moves, you know? I guess the title, ‘Existence Is Futile’, sounds a bit morbid. But again, it’s more about recognizing that truth and that everything is allowed because nothing matters, which mimics the occultist’s maxim Aleister Crowleyyes. We all know that we will die, so we could indulge in life while we possess it. The last song on the album – ‘Us, Dark, Invincible’ – really scores. The cover for this record was created by a Latvian visionary Arthur Berzinsh, who has also worked on the covers of the last two albums. Extremely beautiful, but also apocalyptic. “
Diehard fans will be thrilled to learn that he is a horror icon Doug “Pinhead” Bradley returns to the “Cradle” group, lending his sweetheart tones to the most politically insightful song to date, the epic “Suffer Our Dominion” as well as bonus songs “Sisters Of The Mist”, which is the conclusion of the trilogy “Her Ghost In The Fog” which began more than 20 years ago on a notorious and classic realization “Midian”.
“Existence Is Futile” consists of 12 new songs with a total duration of 54 minutes.
