Cradle Of Filth return with 2021 album.

"This album is about existential terror," Dani Filth declared with the announcement of Existence Is Futile. "The threat of everything. The end of the world, the end of one's life, existential dread." Often derided as the court jesters of black metal, here Cradle Of Filth are in their element as ringmasters of a terminal, macabre circus. And since it's happening right now, it's only logical that the band should rediscover such a diabolic form as this.

The themes may be apocalyptic, but in the face of the inevitable, here Cradle Of Filth sound more thrilling than they have in years as they dance in the warm glow of a nuclear explosion. Making reference to infamous occultist and fan of indulgence Aleister Crowley, explaining the album, Dani sums up the vitality thus: "We all know we’re going to die, so we might as well indulge life while we have it."
