  • Description

    Belched from Hell's depths into the rustic charms of the Witch County, Suffolk thirty long and disturbing years ago, Cradle of Filth are undisputed giants of the heavy metal realm. The band were already due to make a new album during those long, lonely months of lockdown in 2020. Having grabbed the opportunity with both hands, frontman Dani Filth avows that unavoidable isolation from the rest of the world was the best possible incentive to get the job done, while also adding plenty of eerie atmosphere to the whole experience. Sonically speaking, 'Existence Is Futile' is easily the most powerful and dramatic record Cradle of Filth have ever made: it's the sound of band's enviable onstage chemistry spilling over into the studio, propelling each member of the band to new levels of intensity.
