UK's extreme metal band Cradle of Filth has released the second single from their forthcoming album, Cryptoriana - The Seductiveness Of Decay (due out September 22). Its official lyric video can be found below.

Vocalist Dani Filth comments: "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."
