DANI FILTH Discusses Devil Horns Trademark Controversy - “GENE SIMMONS Is Just An Idiot”; Video

In support of the upcoming Cradle Of Filth album, Dani Filth spoke with Duke TV about his Victorian influences, working with video director Artūrs Bērziņš, recording a cover version of Annihilator’s “Alison Hell”, re-releasing a remixed version of Cruelty And The Beast in 2018 and starring in the movie Baphomet.

As an occult specialist, Dani also gives his opinion on Gene Simmons’ devil horns trademark issue. Watch below:

Cradle Of Filth will release their new album, Cryptoriana - The Seductiveness Of Decay, on 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”.

The band has also announced their first full scale UK and Ireland tour in years, starting in Belfast, Northern Ireland on October 30th.

Dani Filth: "We, as a band, are incredibly excited about hitting the UK and Ireland for a full run of dates around All Hallows Eve, as playing the band's home country is always great fun and the audiences here are very receptive.

We aim to be very prolific on the live front, delivering a show worthy of our fan’s exalted expectations and more.”
