British extreme metallers CRADLE OF FILTH, who are currently embroiled in the mixing stage of their new album, "Hammer Of The Witches", spent this past weekend on the coast of Suffolk, England filming a video for their forthcoming single, "Right Wing Of The Garden Triptych". The clip was shot in a creepy-looking hangar at a former U.S. military base and features some very perverse going-ons amidst the filth and fury.
A photo from the "Right Wing Of The Garden Triptych" video shoot can be seen below.
Due later in the year via Nuclear Blast, CRADLE OF FILTH's new CD is inspired by the 1486 treatise on the prosecution of witches by Heinrich Kramer and subtitled "Goetic Justice", as the theme is one of violent revenge for violent persecution.
"Hammer Of The Witches" will mark the first release with the band's new lineup, which includes new guitarists Ashok (of Czech groups ROOT and INNER FEAR) and Richard Shaw (of English acts EMPEROR CHUNG and NG26).
CRADLE OF FILTH singer Dani Filth recently told Australia's "Rabid Noise" podcast about the band's upcoming album: "It's sounding amazing. It's gone back to the twin-guitar harmonies — very fast and ornate and atmospherically sppoky, but [with] lots of melody. I think it's gonna surprise a lot of people."
CRADLE OF FILTH's tenth studio album, "The Manticore And Other Horrors", sold 4,500 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 96 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band's previous full-length effort, "Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa", opened with 5,800 units in November 2010 to land at No. 99.
