Suffolk symphonic black metallers Cradle Of Filth have just dropped a revamped take of ‘Lustmord And Wargasm (The Lick Of Carnivorous Winds)’, which comes from the upcoming remixed and remastered version of their 1998 classic LP, ‘Cruelty And The Beast’.
This is what vocalist Dani Filth had to say about the song.
“We chose this song as a first snifter of the beast, as it’s a perfect example of the ‘Re-Mistressed’ re-release. In truth, we could’ve chosen any of the tracks from the album, but went with ‘Lustmord And Wargasm (The Lick Of Carnivorous Winds)’ as it has everything dripping in spades; blast beats, luscious melodies, a massive epic dropdown section, eerie orchestration, hardcore riffs, and a vicious bite that will rip your fucking face clean off.
And the lyric video… well it’s a lyric video. It’s a video with lyrics, albeit the epilogue of an epic tale, concerning the Hungarian Blood Countess Elizabeth Bathory. So, turn it up to eleven, recline back in your bath of warm virgin’s effluent, and let this awesome new mix of our classic album steal away with your immortal soul!”
The refreshing production breathes new life into the over 20-year-old track, and you can give it a spin below.
The remixed and remastered version of the album, ‘Cruelty And The Beast: Re-Mistressed’, will be released on November 1st 2019 through Music For Nations.
