Cradle of Filth Release New Song and Video, “Heartbreak and Seance”
Kanye West’s favorite black metal band, Cradle of Filth, have released a new song and video called “Heartbreak and Seance,” because of course that’s what it’s called. The video is nothing special — at this point, I’m inclined to believe Dani Filth owns a set that he uses for every CoF clip — and the song is… fine? The chorus is undeniably catchy, but most of the track is pretty standard Cradle of Filthian black metal by way of Anne Rice. Basically, if you already like this band, you will like this song, and if you don’t like this band, this song will probably not sway you. Either way, the lyric “Winter seems far colder without you by my shoulder” will make you giggle, so that’s something.
Check out “Heartbreak and Seance” below. It comes off of Cradle of Filth’s new album, Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness Of Decay, which comes out September 22 on Nuclear Blast, and can be pre-ordered here.
