CRADLE OF FILTH | NEW TRACK 'DEFLOWERING THE MAIDENHEAD, DISPLEASURING THE GODDESS' PREMIERES ONLINE
June 24, 2015
Barbarous hellhounds Cradle Of Filth are set to release their forthcoming album ‘Hammer Of The Witches’ on July 10th but until then, the band are whetting the appetite of eager fans by releasing another new track online! Listen to 'Deflowering The Maidenhead, Displeasuring The Goddess’ below:
Frontman Dani Filth commented on the track: "'Deflowering The Maidenhead, Displeasuring The Goddess' is based on the ancient belief of the world personified as Mother Goddess, concerning itself with her self-preservative measures when assailed by her final abuse by the human race. Violated, poisoned and unknowingly left for dead, Gaia's is a pre-emptive, violent and justified retribution; without tears for creed or culture. Nature versus Mankind. A total renewal of species. The song spirals onward at a frenetic, apocalyptic pace to climax and was originally one of guitarist Ashok's contributions to the album, along with 'The Vampyre At My Side'."
Pre-order 'Hammer Of The Witches' from iTunes to receive 'Deflowering The Maidenhead, Displeasuring The Goddess' as an instant-grat track: http://nblast.de/COFHammeriTunes.
The band's highly anticipated and caliginous creation was brought to fruition in Britain’s Witch County, in darkest rural Suffolk at the reputedly haunted Grindstone Studios. The album’s title is named after the‘Malleus Maleficarum’, a medieval document of guidelines regarding the persecution and torture of witches – but Cradle Of Filth’s title version is more retributory: It’s the Hammer Of The Witches; the hammer is in the witches' hands and it's payback time.
