September 26, 2017, a year ago
Cradle Of Filth singer Dani Filth was interviewed by Sam Dunn at Hellfest in 2011 for the Extreme Metal episode of Metal Evolution. They talkled about Cradle's place in black metal, discovering Venom, and why a pop collaboration would be more hardcore than burning a church.
This extended interview excerpt is presented raw and uncut, with new director's commentary.
Cradle Of Filth’s new album, Cryptoriana - The Seductiveness Of Decay, is out now via Nuclear Blast Records. The album can be ordered 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”.
