Veteran British extreme metallers CRADLE OF FILTH have released the official music video for the song “How Many Tears To Nurture A Rose?” The clip premiered last night as part of CRADLE OF FILTH‘s “Infernal Vernal Equinox Deadstream”, and now fans all across the globe can also bask in its sublime black magick.
Directed by Vicente Cordero, the stunning video winds a haunting tale – sinister, alluring and deadly. But he that dares not grasp the thorn, should never crave the rose…
CRADLE OF FILTH front-man Dani “Filth” Davey stated: “This is yet another great video by director Vicente Cordero, encapsulating the occult essence of the song’s lyricism with great sweeping colorful strokes of total batshit-craziness. It really makes for frightening, yet strangely compelling viewing.”
CRADLE OF FILTH‘s latest album, “Existence Is Futile”, was released in October. The LP was pieced together in isolation at Grindstone Studios in Suffolk with studio guru Scott Atkins (DEVILMENT, BENEDICTION, VADER). Horror icon Doug “Pinhead” Bradley made a welcome return to the CRADLE fold, lending his dulcet tones to the band’s most politically astute song to date, the epic “Suffer Our Dominion” as well as the album bonus track “Sisters Of The Mist”, which is the conclusion to the “Her Ghost In The Fog” trilogy that started over 20 years ago on the infamous and classic “Midian”.
