Cradle Of Filth have debuted the official music video for their song “Blackest Magick In Practice”. Director Sam Scott-Hunter comments:

“There’s dark madness in this video. ‘Blackest Magick In Practice‘ is a deeply tragic tale of lost love. It’s the grief stricken insanity of trying to bring back that loved one from the dead; desperately trying to hold onto that person who’s gone, even if that leads down a dark and gruesome path. I don’t want to give it all away, but I will say that the hardest part of the production was getting hold of a human ear.

I wanted to convey the power of the band too, in amongst the romance, madness and magick. Behind the imagery of the lyrics is a great and powerful metal band of amazing musicians, and I hope people can feel the intensity of the band when they watch this. It is intense viewing. There should be a bit of madness in the video, because there’s madness in this song.”

The track is taken from the band’s latest full-length Hammer Of The Witches, which is out now through Nuclear Blast.

The extreme metal outfit will be touring North America next year beginning in January. Dates can be found here.
