Ahead of the reissue of Cradle of Filth’s heavy metal classic, ‘Cruelty and the Beast’ on 1st November through Music For Nations, the band have shared a lyric video for the re-mistressed version of ‘Lustmord And Wargasm (The Lick Of Carnivorous Winds)’. Dani Filth comments,
“We chose this song as a first snifter of the beast, as it’s a perfect example of the ‘Re-mistressed’ rerelease.
In truth we could’ve chosen any of the tracks from the album, but went with ‘Lustmord And Wargasm (The Lick Of Carnivorous Winds) as it has everything dripping in spades; blast beats, luscious melodies, a massive epic dropdown section, eerie orchestration, hardcore riffs and a vicious bite that will rip your f**king face clean off.
 
And the lyric video… well it’s a lyric video. It’s a video with lyrics, albeit the epilogue of an epic tale concerning the Hungarian Blood Countess Elizabeth Bathory.
So. turn it up to eleven, recline back in your bath of warm virgin’s effluent and let this awesome new mix of our classic album steal away with your immortal soul!  
 
Denn die toten reiten schnell. 
For the dead travel fast…..”

This time they dive into the bloody and gloomy atmosphere of World War I which took place during 1914-1918.

Opening song ‘The Future Of Warware’ is symphonic, massive and epic in every detail, aided especially by soaring skilled guitar work. It is a grand way to start which is all-consuming and sets the scene wonderfully as well as displaying power metal as it should be…
