With the release of their 13th album, Existence Is Futile, due 22nd October, Cradle Of Filth have revealed the video for the second single off the album – Necromantic Fantasies. Directed by Vicente Cordero, this video was shot back-to-back with his previous work for the band, the horribly apocalyptic Crawling King Chaos, though both are remarkably contrasting.
Dani Filth had this to say of the latest video to enter the Cradle catalogue:
“This is a very different video from its predecessor, sporting more of a narrative amid leaning back toward a dark Victorian gothic vibe, showcasing the second of many unique tracks on this, our 13th album.
It’s very cinematic, much like Crawling King Chaos, but walking a much more ‘dark faerytale’ path. The director Vicente has done such an amazing job bringing the storyline together with the band and the incredible sets. It looks gorgeous. And the song is pretty good too!”
Dramatic in all the wonderful dark ways that Cradle Of Filth can imagine. The track is an epic fantasy tinged metal wonder and Dani’s raspy growl still sounds as good as ever over the twin guitar theatrics. It’s a slower paced rock track full of gothic hooks thats rather addictive.
