Cradle Of Filth Frontman Talks About New Material

CRADLE OF FILTH's official MySpace page has been updated with a question-and-answer session featuring the entire band. An excerpt from the Dani Filth (vocals) portion of the interview follows:

Q: How do you compare CRADLE OF FILTH now to the CRADLE OF FILTH from the early 1990s? What can us die hard fans expect from CRADLE OF FILTH later on?

Dani: "Well, every band must mature and evolve. As a band we are constantly trying to improve on our formula and indeed not actually become too formulaic in the meantime, if that makes any sense. The new stuff again swerves from the expected. In fact, the new tracks on the 'Thornography' deluxe version (out February) are as the title suggests...harder, darker, faster."

Q: What is your opinion about the people who record any of your shows (or others band shows) and put them on the Internet for free downloads as DVDs or live CDs?

Dani: "It's inevitable that this is going to happen somewhere or the other. I'm not an avid fan of this but it's not the end of the world as far as I'm concerned. The only think I don't particularly like about this sort of bootlegging is if the sound is reminiscent of a bee trapped in a matchbox. I don't think it justifies the band and indeed the concert on the night if the quality put out on the web is poor. It seems like a pretty needless thing to do. Saying that, if the gig is good and you've got away with it on the night, all bloody luck to you..."

Q: Are there any plans to undertake a solo project as I have heard whispers on the wind that you and Joey Jordison (SLIPKNOT) were involved in a band together. Is there any real truth to this rumor?

Dani: "There is some truth to this rumor though it was a side project designed to vent steam and not to interfere with anything CRADLE was doing at that time. Joey was originally going to man the drum-stool but that prestigious seat was then rumored for John Tempesta (WHITE ZOMBIE, THE CULT). Also involved was producer Rob Caggiano, GORGOROTH bassist King, I, PARASITE noise terrorist Christopher Jon and another who hadn't fully committed. We actually have a few songs fully written but our record company decided that it was in the band's and my best interest to refuse me permission to continue any further with it. I acquiesced gracefully, though not without a proper moan first, you understand!"

Why must every "tr00 metal" fan be horrible at grammar?

But on topic. . .Cradle's new stuff is far from darker, or heavier. They would have to go back to the same type of aggression found on Midian and earlier.

Jesus Christ! Why are these a**clowns still making this Hot Topic s***. They clearly haven't done anything memorable since Midian and even that had more than its fair share of stupidity.

I've always said and still stand by it. If you want to hear ok black metal listen to Cradle of Filth because their early stuff was good, but if you want to listen to amazing black metal then you got to put them to the side and listen to Dimmu.

Well headbanger54, that's a pretty random statement in a Cradle of Filth topic, but anyway. If you weren't so dense you would realize that both Slipknot and Korn are forms of metal and are relevant in today's world of metal news. But this site sucks, so you won't be back anyway, right? That is a good thing for the rest of us. Go ahead and listen to whatever it is you think tr00 metal is. Undoubtedly you are a poser anyway, since you didn't bother to specify exactly what "tr00" metal is.

Cradle was (at one point) melodic black metal, as was Dimmu. I refrain from saying Dimmu is still Melodic Black Metal as their past couple discs have focused less on the elements of MBM and more so on vocal manipulation, atmospheric noise, industrial influences, and less gothic/black keys, black metal riffing, and unprocessed vocals.

I'm an avid fan of Cradle of Filth, more so the earlier stuff, especially Dusk & Her Embrace, but looking forward to hearing more.

I don't care if they're not what they used to be, they're still a lot better than anything getting radio play - and I'm not going to bash a band because they're not "metal enough" for me... Especially a band that helped make black metal /MBM what it is... even if they've strayed...

Dimmu are just as bad in my opinion, Cradle may have turned trendy goth but at least some of their stuff was interesting. In either case I'll take Ulver, Emperor, Xasthur etc ANY day.

...and then you hit puberty, and realize that "fckn break sh** to" isn't necessarily a qualifier for good music...

Go find some sh**hole band that qualifies as good metal to you, I'll be listening to stuff I like despite what other people may think of it.

I disagree Cynic although DCA and the last one could have been better Puritania was one of the better metal cds in the early 2,000's and i never said they were true bm they stopped doing that after they started singing in English anyway but they have not made a mockery of themselves and not started doing cliff richards and soul covers and sucking ville vallo's c*** like Dio Jr and company has and this is from a dude that has 2 cradle shirts and all their shiit up to damnation and a day. Good metal is about the music son(????????) and not about being premadonnas and when your fukkin lunchbox is going to be sold at spencers or your girlie tees at hot topic like this joke of a band has done. I knew they would suck after robin, gian quit the band anyways theyre just as bad as Shakesphere's Sister.

f*** thornography. Tonite in Flames is a sh**ty song, a very bad choice for a single, and Ville Vallo is a queer.

Nymphetamine was the beginning of the end.

Listen to Twisted Nails of Faith if you want to hear awsome CoF
