Cradle of Filth released ”You Will Know The Lion By His Claw ” new lyric video!

British metal legends  Cradle of Filth released ”You Will Know The Lion By His Claw” from their upcoming album ”Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness Of Decay”, which will be out in September 22th via Nuclear Blast Records.

 

Statment of the Vocalist singer Dani Filth about the song:

“This track is one of my favourite songs from the new ‘Cryptoriana’ album -aside from ‘Achingly Beautiful’, ‘Death And The Maiden’ and the title track- due to its very unique flavour and its vehement brutality. The culminative strike is especially very ‘Dusk… and Her Embrace’ era Black Metal…

Inspired by the works of H. Rider Haggard, a Victorian author who schooled in my home town of Ipswich, this song uses the railroad annexation of the Transvaal in Africa during the 19th century to paint a vision of the greedy machinations of man coming up against a furious, displaced natural foe, thus posing an allegory for the downtrodden, revolting.

I also have the latin of this expression tattooed on my arm (due to being the usual supercilious Leo!).
The quote was made famous having been said in 1697 by Johann Bernoulli about Isaac Newton’s anonymously submitted solution to Bernoulli’s challenge regarding the Brachistochrone curve.So… Enjoy. Indulge. Desire. Darken.”

“The moment we have been waiting for is here. Our new album, ”Of The Dark Light”, will finally be released through Nuclear Blast on June 9, 2017! Over the last four-year period Suffocation has taken its time to write this record and we couldn’t be prouder. It is our most brutal record yet!

“Suffocation worked through the end of 2016 to hash out and lay down the tracks at Full Force Studios with Joe Cincotta and once again enlisted Zeuss to bring this creation to life! Myself, Frank Mullen, Charles Errigo, Eric Morotti and Derek Boyer have all pushed the limit of what Suffocation is and we hope you enjoy it!

“We also had the honor of having Colin Marks handling our artwork which is a new frontier for us and a different avenue and style to the traditional Suffocation records. We also including some backup vocals from Kevin Muller (The Merciless concept) which for us makes this album very unique! This will be our tenth studio release and we really hope you like ”…Of The Dark Light”! Keep the grind alive and hope to see you on the road!”
