CRADLE OF FILTH Leader DANI FILTH - “It’s Never Easy To Make An Album… If It Was Everybody Would Be Doing It”; Video
September 18, 2017, a year ago
FaceCulture has released a two-part video interview with Cradle Of Filth leader, Dani Filth. In Part 1, Dani talks about Francis Ford Coppola’s Dracula, movie soundtracks, tonal layers, a team building exercise, victorian supernatural horror, and a representation of fear.
In Part 2, he talks about about a macabre era, reconnecting with Liv Kristine, the pressures of making an album, dealing with critique, Thornography, and modern day myths.
Cradle Of Filth will release their new album, Cryptoriana - The Seductiveness Of Decay, this Friday (September 22nd) via Nuclear Blast Records. The album is available for pre-order here.
The new record was recorded at Grindstone Studios, Suffolk, UK by the very honourable Scott Atkins, esq. who has been the resident go-to producer for Cradle Of Filth for several albums. Dani sat in during the mix, serving up flaming mugs of teas, making the studio couch his own and lending his ears when necessary.
The cover artwork by Artūrs Bērziņš can be seen below. Bērziņš is the mastermind behind the new record’s artwork, photography and videography – best known for his defiant neo-symbolism raster graphics and oil paintings; postmodern interpretations of classic myths. He has been proclaimed as a “sacred monster of Latvian postmodernism”.
