Cradle of Filth Let yourself be tempted by “Necromantic Fantasies” on the last song
Cradle of Filth debuted “Necromantic Fantasies”, the second new track from the upcoming Existence is futile album.
The first glimpse of the new album, “Crawling King Chaos”, was a total assault and, here, Cradle of Filth relied on aggression, opting for a slower tempo dominated by catchy riffs, classic metallic melodies and gothic splendor.
“This is a very different video from its predecessor, sporting more of a narrative amid a return to a dark Victorian Gothic vibe, featuring the second of many unique tracks on this, our 13th album,” said the leader Dani Filth. “The concept was not created by the pandemic. We wrote it long before it started, but the pandemic is just the tip of the cotton swab in the direction the world is going, you know?”
“It’s very cinematic, kind of like ‘Crawling King Chaos’, but on a much more ‘dark fairy tale’ path. Director Vicente did an amazing job bringing the script together with the band and the amazing sets. . It’s beautiful. And the song is pretty good too, “he added.

Cradle of Filth will be on the road in the United States throughout October with a trip to Mexico for a festival appearance that will close the race.
They will come back to their revolutionary album from 1998 Cruelty and the beast, performing the classic record in its entirety each night alongside other fan favorites. It is likely that “Crawling King Chaos” or “Necromantic Fantasies” will also slip into the background with the new album which will be released on October 22 on Nuclear Blast.

Cradle of Filth, lyrics from “Necromantic Fantasies”
Lovecraft by day Bend it to Wyrd’s ways Life is linked, a masquerade Where nothing is eternal Save the grave And our burning desire
Look around us now, rebellious The world is wound up in tragedy And out of the mad crowd Obstacles bless our fate
At full moon And the wolves howl in the forest Would you take my hand And lead us both on our dark adventure? Would we share our dreams These necromantic fantasies? So could we ever be Except when our hearts line up like thunder?
Do as you like Never had their guilt Death purrs with a dark melody Precious hours Like sylph and dirt Are built on borrowed time So let’s fly The twin spirits have united into one inside As countless demons refine damnation We will revel in our own salvation Before dying Before judgment comes crashing down Let’s make our destinies together On the throne of paradise
My soul was caricature, don’t worry He was limping cold and lame Then through my frost defenses You came with your eyes full of flame
So when the stars are spreading And the nights are filled with terror Will you whisper the truth We right about their human error? Would we share our dreams These necromantic fantasies? So could we ever be Except when our hearts line up like thunder?
Love conquers all, love conquered me He brought Madeleine to her knees So breathe magic in the air Tragic tastes are everywhere As the heavens fix their wrathful eyes On the man licking the dry planet From tears to leaven, leave you and I just spread our wings … At full moon And the wolves howl in the forest Would you take my hand And lead us both on our last trip? Would we share our dreams These necromantic fantasies? Really, could we ever be Other than when our hearts are six feet underground?
Cradle of Dirt, “Necromantic Fantasies”
