Cradle Of Filth recently released a stunning video for their track ‘How Many Tears To Nurture A Rose?’, Directed by Vicente Cordero, it weaves a haunting tale – sinister, alluring and deadly. But he that dares not grasp the thorn, should never crave the rose…

Cradle Of Filth’s USA tour will launch next week on May 5th, supporting Danzig.


How Many Tears To Nurture A Rose? – official video

The gates of hell opened once again in 2021, revealing Cradle Of Filth’s 13th manifesto Existence Is Futile. Pieced together in isolation at Grindstone Studios in Suffolk with studio guru Scott Atkins, the record is a pitch-black, perverse and at times absurdly brutal masterpiece, based around the concept of existentialism.


Diehard fans were thrilled to learn that horror icon Doug ‘Pinhead’ Bradley made a welcome return, lending his dulcet tones to the band’s most politically astute song to date, the epic ‘Suffer Our Dominion’ as well as the album bonus track ‘Sisters Of The Mist’, which is the conclusion to the ‘Her Ghost In The Fog’ trilogy, started over 20 years ago on the infamous and classic Midian.
