CRADLE OF FILTH unveil the cover artwork for forthcoming album ‘Hammer Of The Witches’

Cradle Of Filth the UK’s most visionary and hellish outfit have unveiled the serene and alluring, yet harrowing cover artwork for their upcoming 11th studio album and opus nocturne entitled ‘Hammer Of The Witches’.

Fiendish main man and vocalist Dani Filth explained the provocative artwork;

“The artwork for ‘Hammer Of The Witches’ was created by Latvian Artist Arthur Berzinsh and is a lavish walk-through of the lyricism, drawing on rich Renaissance themes and displaying them in beautiful yet unsettling scenarios. Half of the detailed pieces are totally original for the release, others are Berzinsh classics cunningly tailored to the themes of the album, which are themes rife with heady witchcraft, be it persecution, retribution or unfettered spiritual liberation. The female form is rampant throughout the artwork, unashamedly displayed in its classical rendition of beauty… and horror.”

Arthur Berzinsh is best known for his defiant neo-symbolism raster graphics and oil paintings, postmodern interpretations of classic myths and refined hooliganism in the playground of contemporary art. He has been proclaimed as a “sacred monster of Latvian postmodernism”. And rightly so, his visually expressive and mannerly works tend to trigger emotions which can make thoughts fidget and wriggle, unable to find a comfortable position among the impressions gathered. His creative work is characterized by a varied range of voluptuous erotica, intensified imagery, dream-like scenes and decorativeness weighed down by visual metaphors and contrasts teetering on the edge of symbolism.

Arthur Berzinsh explains his artwork and concepts;

“In terms of mood, I was looking for the inspiration of this set in the spirit of Faustian romanticism, the ambivalent art of Renaissance that reanimated motives of pagan mythology after the Middle Ages, and of course, the darkly beautiful and charming spirit of Goetia traditions that is filled with the atmosphere of hermetical rituals. My personal conceptual leitmotif that inspires me, is a conflict between the free-thinking and totalitarianism, where the raw power always gains the upper hand over individualism. The act of art is a theurgical act that creates existence in the Platonic reality - reality of ideas. So, at least in this Platonic dimension let’s give the suppressed ones a chance to get their revenge. For me the Goat of Mendes on the cover symbolizes the scapegoat, who’s tired of his humiliating role and wants a payback. This character is an archetypical symbol of libido and other primordial forces and instinctive aspects of a human being. And these forces always have been a menace for those who want to reign over the others, like it’s schematically represented in George Orwell’s “1984”.“

Cradle Of Filth have been ensconced in creative purgatory for the last few weeks in Britain’s darkest rural Suffolk, busy finishing the recording of their album at the reputedly haunted Grindstone Studios. It has been three years since the release of their previous album – the longest gap in the band’s history. And the wait is almost over.

‘Hammer Of The Witches’ the fruit of their diabolical endeavours is due for global release this July via Nuclear Blast.

Extreme Rules 2015 Preview: Dean Ambrose vs. Luke Harper (Chicago Street Fight)

At Extreme Rules, Dean Ambrose will go head-to-head with Luke Harper in a Chicago Street Fight. At the end of the day, the question really isn’t really who will win, but how much of the Windy City will still be standing once they are through.

The all-out turmoil between these two tough-as-nails competitors began at WrestleMania when, during the high-stakes Intercontinental Title Ladder Match, Harper powerbombed The Lunatic Fringe over the top rope and onto unforgiving steel rungs — essentially taking him out of the contest. Then four days later on SmackDown, Harper’s catastrophic one-on-one showdown against Ambrose again met a premature end, when Harper hurled his unhinged adversary through the announce table.    

Someone who never met Ambrose might suggest that he should leave well enough alone. But that individual just doesn’t understand Dean Ambrose. As Byron Saxton appropriately categorized him, the gutsy Superstar’s mind is a nothing short of a “cocoon of chaos.” Completely fearless and as tough and unpredictable as they come, Ambrose is an athlete custom-made for a Street Fight, where there are no rules and everything in reach is in play.

Then again, if there were a competitor molded specifically to face the former United States Champion in such a contest, Luke Harper would be it. Completely off his rocker, the bearded Superstar seems to feed off the anguish of his opponent and would be happy to watch everything burn.

Who will walk out of Chicago in one piece? Find out when Extreme Rules comes to WWE Network, this Sunday on WWE Network at 8/7 C.

It’s amazingly easy to convince Shootie to do something he thinks is pointless. All you have to do is suggest it’d be childish not to do it. He’s too proud to refuse! He’s very insistent on being taken seriously as an adult. That’s pretty childish.
