Cradle of Filth unveiled a vivid and gory music video on Monday (March 21) for their Existence is futile cut “How many tears to feed a rose?”
Featuring a Dani Filth painted on a corpse, the macabre clip flickers between shots of the English extreme metal bandleader and shadowy scenes in a forest where a gruesome, evil creature holds court. It’s probably best not to stare in front of the kids.
Cradle of Filth said the video tells a haunting story. “Sinister, Alluring, and Deadly” is how they described it on their website before adding: “But he who dares not grasp the thorn, should never crave the rose…”
Filth said, “This is yet another excellent video from director Vicente Cordero, encapsulating the occult essence of the song’s lyricism with big, colorful strokes of utter madness. It truly makes for a chilling, yet oddly compelling viewing.”
Existence is futileCradle of Filth’s 13th studio album, was released in October 2021. It features the singles “Crawling King Chaos” and “Necromantic Fantasies”.
