NEWS: Cradle of Filth to open Cryptoriana tour in Belfast

OUR favourite dark creatures Cradle of Filth are set to open up its Cryptoriana tour in Belfast on 30th October.

The tour is named after the band's upcoming 12th full-length album.

‘Cryptoriana - The Seductiveness Of Decay’ will be released on September 22nd via Nuclear Blast.

You can view the stunning cover artwork by Artūrs Bērziņš below.

Bērziņš is the mastermind behind the new record’s artwork, photography and videography – best known for his defiant neo-symbolism raster graphics and oil paintings; postmodern interpretations of classic myths. He has been proclaimed as a “sacred monster of Latvian postmodernism”.

Dani Filth said: "The album is deeply infused with Victorian gothic horror and thus the title is a reflection of that. 'Cryptoriana' implies the Victorian's infatuation with the supernatural, the grave and the ghoulish.

"And the subtitle 'The Seductiveness Of Decay' further cements this attraction to death and the glittering lengthy process of self-annihilation."

The first single off ‘Cryptoriana - The Seductiveness Of Decay’ will be released on July 5th, the same day that the album pre-order will become available.

Tickets, priced £12.50, will be available from Monday - all the usual outlets.

As Mr Loveday said when announcing this: "Ave Satanas".
