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!"
