CRADLE OF FILTH - Dani Filth Discusses About The Artwork Of Upcoming Album

  • Print

Barbarous hellhounds Cradle Of Filth are set to release their forthcoming album entitled Hammer Of The Witches on 10th July via Nuclear Blast Records. In anticipation of the release the band's verbose mouthpiece Dani Filth explained all and more about the artwork in the video below.
The artwork was created by Arthur Berzinsh 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.
