There has always been a pretty sharp divide in the metal community regarding Cradle of Filth, but regardless of all that drama, I really enjoy them. Sure, a lot of their music is pretty predictable and pretentious, but I would be lying if I said their latest offering Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa wasn’t one of my favorite albums from 2010, as well as their 2004 album Nymphetamine being a contender in my top twenty all time albums.

That being said, they are still an iffy band, and I’ll be honest, I did not enjoy their last single ‘For Your Vulgar Delectation’, and ‘Frost on Her Pillow’ is giving me that same uneasy feeling of “meh”. But for those interested you can view the video — which features a plethora of weird and not so pleasant imagery — above, and hopefully you’ll find something enjoyable in its folds.

Cradle of Filth’s forthcoming release, The Manticore and Other Horrors is out October 29th on Peaceville Records.
