DEVILMENT Unveil Music Video For ‘JudasStein’ Track
July 30th, 2017

Ipswich, England-based symphonic gothic metal band Devilment – fronted by Cradle Of Filth mainman Dani Filth – have released a music video for the track ‘JudasStein’, which can be viewed below.

Devilment issued second full-length studio album Devilment II: The Mephisto Waltzes on November 18th, 2016 through Nuclear Blast Entertainment.

Dani Filth commented: “Everybody in Devilment is very excited about the prospect of releasing our latest album, Devilment II: The Mephisto Waltzes, which we have worked extremely hard on. The album is definitely a step-up from our debut, featuring a more mature, dissonant presence coupled with a darker edge, yet at the same time utilising our better musical assets to deliver a unique metal hybrid. I don’t even know what to classify it!”

The outing was produced, recorded, mixed and mastered at Grindstone Studios in Ipswich by long term collaborator Scott Atkins between March and July 2016.

Filth said: “Scott has worked very closely with the band to share our vision and we are very proud of the finished result, especially the megalithic production values and the hammered-home emphasis on song writing.”

Cover artwork duties fell to Elena Vizerskayaaka Kassandra.

The vocalist added: “Winner of many international awards, the artist for the new Devilment album is Elena Vizerskayaaka Kassandra, whose photography and photo-manipulation perfectly complements the mysterious and magickal world of Devilment. Elena’s work is sometimes compared to Dali and Magritte due to the complexity of artistic figures and the perceptible amount of layers, something to be felt and not necessarily understood, exotic dreams filled with reflections and allusion. I have been a fan of Elena’s work for a long while now and had originally wanted to utilise it for the Cradle Of Filth album, The Manticore And Other Horrors as far back as 2011, which only fell through when band politics intervened and an in-house label artist was used instead.

“In conjunction with Elena, the booklet was compiled and further augmented with illustration by Dan Goldsworthy, who has also undertaken album artwork for the likes of Accept, Hell, Xentrix, Gloryhammer and Sylosis, amongst others. His contribution to the album has provided it with a minimalist dark uniformity, punctuated by slick and classily macabre imagery, the perfect balance to Elena’s gorgeously vibrant photography.”

The track listing is as follows;

01. ‘JudasStein’
02. ‘Hitchcock Blonde’
03. ‘Under The Thunder’
04. ‘Full Dark, No Stars’
