Cradle of Filth share lyric video for remixed and remastered version of ‘Lustmord And Wargasm (The Lick Of Carnivorous Winds)’


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…..”

CRADLE OF FILTH Announce – You Will Know The Lion By His Claw (OFFICIAL LYRIC VIDEO)

According to  Cradle Of Filth’s Facebook :

UK’s legendary extreme metal icons CRADLE OF FILTH have released the second single off of their eagerly awaited 12th album, ‘Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness Of Decay’.
Watch the official lyric video for ‘You Will Know The Lion By His Claw’ here: https://youtu.be/s8r6DoD83ok

Commented singer Dani Filth: “This track is one of my favourite songs from the new ‘Cryptoriana’ album -aside from ‘Achingly Beautiful’, ‘Death And The Maiden’ and the title track- due to its very unique flavour and its vehement brutality. The culminative strike is especially very ‘Dusk… and Her Embrace’ era Black Metal…
Inspired by the works of H. Rider Haggard, a Victorian author who schooled in my home town of Ipswich, this song uses the railroad annexation of the Transvaal in Africa during the 19th century to paint a vision of the greedy machinations of man coming up against a furious, displaced natural foe, thus posing an allegory for the downtrodden, revolting.
I also have the latin of this expression tattooed on my arm (due to being the usual supercilious Leo!).
The quote was made famous having been said in 1697 by Johann Bernoulli about Isaac Newton’s anonymously submitted solution to Bernoulli’s challenge regarding the Brachistochrone curve.
So… Enjoy. Indulge. Desire. Darken.”

Furthermore the band also announced to release the dates for the upcoming European tour in support of ‘Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness Of Decay’ on Thursday, August 17.
