CRADLE OF FILTH Issue Second Official Video Trailer For ‘Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness Of Decay’ Album
August 17th, 2017

British extreme metal group Cradle Of Filth issue 12th full-length studio album Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness Of Decay on September 22nd, 2017 through Nuclear Blast Records.

Frontman Dani Filth commented: “The album is deeply infused with Victorian gothic horror and thus the title is a reflection of that. ‘Cryptoriana’ implies the Victorian’s infatuation with the supernatural, the grave and the ghoulish. And the subtitle ‘The Seductiveness Of Decay’ further cements this attraction to death and the glittering lengthy process of self-annihilation.”

A second official video trailer for Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness Of Decay has been released and can be viewed below.

The outing was recorded at Grindstone Studios in Suffolk, England with producer Scott Atkins.
