If you like your metal conceptually subtle but otherwise pretty much not subtle at all in any way, chances are you probably are a big Cradle fan. The UK’s favorite mischief makers summon the darkness once more with new album Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness Of Decay. Their 12th offering in a long and storied career, it is surely one of the more anticipated records for the metal scene of 2017. September 22 is the official release date, giving you a full month to learn the lyrics before Halloween. Watch the video below to see Dani looking kind of like a Goblin King/evil deer hybrid in a snowy realm with the band and a pile of I think naked virgins? The production value all around is great and I love the melodic choral style vocals over the blackened speed charnal shred and Filth’s shrieks.
