Cradle of Filth has a new album coming out titled Hammer of the Witches scheduled to be out on July 10th via Nuclear Blast and as usual, we get a little taste of what the album will sound like and what better way than releasing a song called “Deflowering the Maidenhead, Displeasuring the Goddess” to rustle the sensitives. Vocalist Dani Filth explains the meaning behind the track:
Deflowering the Maidenhead, Displeasuring the Goddess’ is based on the ancient belief of the world personified as Mother Goddess, concerning itself with her self-preservative measures when assailed by her final abuse by the human race. Violated, poisoned and unknowingly left for dead, Gaia’s is a pre-emptive, violent and justified retribution; without tears for creed or culture. Nature versus Mankind. A total renewal of species. The song spirals onward at a frenetic, apocalyptic pace to climax and was originally one of guitarist Ashok’s contributions to the album, along with ‘The Vampyre at My Side.’”
To be fair, the song sounds like a vast improvement from their previous, most recent releases and it may bring back some of the fans who stray from their shifting style throughout the years. To get Hammer of the Witches, visit Nuclear Blast’s webstore.
