Cradle Of Filth has premiered their new song recently. You can check out the lyric video for their song “Achingly Beautiful” below. The song is from the band’s upcoming new album Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness Of Decay which is due out on September 22nd via Nuclear Blast.
Frontman Dani Filth has the following to say about the song:
“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 skool Cradle vibe for me, both lyrically and musically, and reeking hideously of the Vampiric, the dropdown section in the middle is pure ‘A Gothic Romance’.”
