British extreme gothic metallers Cradle of Filth have announced that their new album, the follow-up to ‘The Manticore and Other Horrors’, will be entitled ‘Hammer Of The Witches’. It will be a concept album inspired by by the 1486 treatise on the prosecution of witches by Heinrich Kramer and subtitled ‘Goetic Justice’. The latest from the band is that they are now at the mixing stage and the album is scheduled to come out in April 2015 via Nuclear Blast.
They are also working on a video for the new single ‘Right Wing Of The Garden Triptych’. The clip is being filmed at the former U.S. Military base of Bentwaters, Rendlesham Forest. Here’s some comments from Dani Filth:
“If the weekends activities were totally madcap and an experience never to forget, then today’s filming -involving a gorgeous girl tied in various limb contorting positions whilst demonic images were projected onto her lithe naked body- topped the lot. Plus I got to see a World War Two Spitfire fighter plane doing aerobatics over the field next to the photography studio too; both being things you just don’t see everyday!”
