I think they must have worn out the drummer. This guy looks like his own ghost on videos from the newest 2015 album of Cradle of Filth called the Hammer of the Witches.
CoF‘s 11th studio edition features the new guitarists Marek ‘Ashok’ Šmerda and Richard Shaw. You’ll also find Lindsay Schoolcraft on keyboards and female vocals for the first time with the cradle. So a lot of newbies in this band, and this is always somewhat of a worry when a new release is due. Either they wreck it, or it comes out really good.
