Eveningstar.co.uk is reporting that vocalist Dani Filth from Cradle of Filth is currently among the top 10 nominees in a vote for people to identify Suffolk area icons:

When Suffolk residents were asked to identify their icons of the county, most people expected traditional favourites such as the Suffolk Punch, the Heritage Coast and Adnams and Greene King beers to feature prominently.

As expected, all of these have been put forward to the Suffolk Icons website, but also in the current top 10 is an extremely unlikely icon – the self-styled “crypt-crawling” frontman of “death metal” rock band, Cradle of Filth. According to Suffolk folk, the one-time Hadleigh-based rocker Mr Dani Filth is a true icon of the county.

He has been put forward as one of the most iconic things about Suffolk and has been backed by nearly 200 visitors to the website. The 37-year-old star is in the top 10 on the site, alongside a pint of Southwold-brewed Adnams ale, a mighty Suffolk Punch horse, the coastline’s famous beach huts and the idyllic Dunwich Heath.
