Cradle Of Filth Shares a New Single and Video – “Necromantic Fantasies”

Gothic Black Metal legends Cradle of Filth has shared a new single and video “Necromantic Fantasies.” The track comes from their forthcoming 13th studio album – Existence Is Futile via Nuclear Blast Records on October 22nd, 2021. Watch the video here!


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 commented::
“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!”


The album was recorded at frequent studio home Grindstone Studios with producer Scott Atkins and features artwork from Arthur Berzinsh, creator of the last two album artwork for Cradle.

Diehard fans will be thrilled to learn that horror icon Doug ‘Pinhead’ Bradley makes a welcome return to the CRADLE fold, lending his dulcet tones to the band’s most politically astute song to date, the epic “Suffer Our Dominion” as well as the album bonus track “Sisters Of The Mist,” which is the conclusion to the “Her Ghost In The Fog” trilogy that started over 20 years ago on the infamous and classic Midian.
