CRADLE OF FILTH discuss »Hammer Of The Witches« artwork

Barbarous hellhounds CRADLE OF FILTH are set to release their forthcoming album »Hammer Of The Witches« on July 10th via Nuclear Blast Records In anticipation of the release, we asked the band's verbose mouthpiece of Hell to tell us a bit more about the album artwork - watch as Dani Filth explains all here: http://youtu.be/fL6jInrLTBA

The artwork was created by Arthur Berzinsh (http://www.berzinsh.lv) who 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. 

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.
