"Honey And Sulphur", the new video from England's black metal maestros Cradle of Filth, can be viewed below. The track comes off the group's new album, "Godspeed On The Devil's Thunder", which will be released on October 28 via Roadrunner Records.

In addition to the standard version of "Godspeed On The Devil's Thunder" (due out on October 28 via Roadrunner Records), there will also be a special edition and vinyl released.

"Godspeed on the Devil's Thunder" is conceptual and is based on the well-documented, true-life fall from grace of a shadowy historical figure named Gilles de Rais, a wealthy French nobleman who was one of Joan of Arc's brothers-in-arms. He was best known, however, as a prolific serial killer who mixed prayers with his nightly murders as well as an aspiring alchemist. He was accused of a panoply of crimes, among them heresy, demonology and kidnapping. There's even an extreme fringe sect of historians who question de Rais' true status, with some convinced he was framed.

Cradle of Filth's vocalist Dani Filth elaborated on the album's concept, saying, "By far this is our most extreme, dramatic and deeply disturbing album to date. The legend of Gilles de Rais has been given fresh, vampyrical life in this conceptual meisterwerk, swathed in pitch-black magic and a viciousness unsurpassed in the annals of Cradle history. Screw what our detractors say, everyone who has heard this album has bruised their jaws on the pentagram-bejewelled floor."

Cradle of Filth will make its much-anticipated return to U.S. soil this winter for their first headline tour since the Viva La Bands tour in fall 2007. Satyricon will serve as main support, while Greek metallers Septicflesh (no written as one word) will open the show. The tour runs for six weeks.
