Cradle of Filth will release their new album, Hammer of the Witches, on July 10th, via Nuclear Blast, their first with the label to have a global release. The band has already revealed the first track, “Right Wing of the Garden Triptych,” which you can watch below, and today they’ve released the first in a series of album trailers. In the player above, watch frontman Dani Filth and his filthy cohorts discuss the writing of the album.
The band’s highly anticipated and caliginous creation was brought to fruition in Britain’s Witch County, in darkest rural Suffolk at the reputedly haunted Grindstone Studios. The album’s title is named after the Malleus Maleficarum, a medieval document of guidelines regarding the persecution and torture of witches — but Cradle of Filth’s title version is more retributory: It’s the Hammer of the Witches; the hammer is in the witches’ hands and it’s payback time.
Hammer of the Witches can be pre-ordered now in a variety of formats here.
