As October 22 gets closer, and anticipation builds for Cradle of Filth’s new album, Existence Is Futile, the band have dropped a bomb of a video for the track “Necromantic Fantasies,” shot back-to-back with Cradle of Filth’s previous offering, “Crawling King Chaos.”

Existence Is Futile has been described as dark, perverse, and extreme, the perfect mix for all that is Cradle of Filth. Doug Bradley, better known as “Pinhead” to horror fans of the Hellraiser movie franchise, contributes vocals to the tracks “Suffer Our Dominion” and “Sisters Of The Mist.”

Dani Filth states:

“This is a very different video from its predecessor, sporting more of a narrative amid leaning back toward a dark, Victorian-gothic vibe, showcasing the second of many unique tracks on this, our 13th album.

It’s very cinematic, much like ‘Crawling King Chaos,’ but walking a much more ‘dark fairytale’ path. The director, Vicente, has done such an amazing job bringing the storyline together with the band and the incredible sets. It looks gorgeous. And the song is pretty good, too!”
