CRADLE OF FILTH | NEW TRACK 'ENSHRINED IN CREMATORIA' POSTED ONLINE
June 29, 2015
Cradle Of Filth's highly anticipated and caliginous creation ‘Hammer Of The Witches’ is set for release on July 10th but fans hankering to hear new tunes can listen to 'Enshrined In Crematoria' on YouTube:
Frontman Dani elaborated on the track: "Lyrically the track 'Enshrined In Crematoria' is hilted in the legendary Ark Of The Tragedian, the poet's Holy Grail. It is the author's inspiration personified as a tombed angel, much like that of Poe's pale obsession, and the magickal 'midnight' ritual wherein she is conjured forth as a reincarnation of his lost love, to provide forbidden artistic sustenance. It is imagination's utter peak and fuel for a literal literary madman. 'Enshrined In Crematoria' is at essence the first of guitarist Richard Shaw's contributions to the new album, before the full band took it by the teeth and spat it into light."
'Hammer Of The Witches' 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.
