CRADLE OF FILTH - New Lyric Video Released

Devilish extreme metal icons Cradle Of Filth have released a lyric video for the new track named "You Will Know The Lion By His Claw". The track is taken from bands upcoming 12th album entitled Cryptoriana - The Seductiveness Of Decay, which will be released on 22nd September via Nuclear Blast Records. 
Singer Dani Filth commented: "This track is one of my favourite songs from the new Cryptoriana album - aside from "Achingly Beautiful", "Death And The Maiden" and the title track- due to its very unique flavour and its vehement brutality. The culminative strike is especially very Dusk… And Her Embrace era Black Metal… Inspired by the works of H. Rider Haggard, a Victorian author who schooled in my home town of Ipswich, this song uses the railroad annexation of the Transvaal in Africa during the 19th century to paint a vision of the greedy machinations of man coming up against a furious, displaced natural foe, thus posing an allegory for the downtrodden, revolting. I also have the latin of this expression tattooed on my arm (due to being the usual supercilious Leo!). The quote was made famous having been said in 1697 by Johann Bernoulli about Isaac Newton's anonymously submitted solution to Bernoulli's challenge regarding the Brachistochrone curve. So… Enjoy. Indulge. Desire. Darken." Previously released video clip for the track "Heartbreak And Seance" can be seen over HERE, but first enjoy in "You Will Know The Lion By His Claw" in the player below.
