CRADLE OF FILTH release lyric video for "Achingly Beautiful"
UK's legendary extreme metal icons CRADLE OF FILTH have released the official lyric video for the venomous new song 'Achingly Beautiful'. The song comes off the band's upcoming album Cryptoriana - The Seductiveness Of Decay.
Commented Dani Filth: "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’.""

Cryptoriana - The Seductiveness Of Decay was recorded at Grindstone Studios, Suffolk, UK by the very honourable Scott Atkins, esq. who has been the resident go-to producer for CRADLE OF FILTH for several albums. Dani sat in during the mix, serving up flaming mugs of teas, making the studio couch his own and lending his ears when necessary.
