Dani Filth On Next Cradle Of Filth Album: “It’s A Cross Between ‘Hammer Of The Witches’ And ‘Cruelty And The Beast'”

Dani Filth was recently interviewed by Metal Forces about his band Devilment. During the talk, he also offered a little bit about Cradle Of Filth’s new album, which he says will sound like “a cross between ‘Hammer Of The Witches’ and ‘Cruelty And The Beast’.”


Filth said the following:

“From what I do know, it’s a cross between ‘Hammer Of The Witches’ [2015] and ‘Cruelty And The Beast’ [1998]. It’s very melodic, very fast… Well, it’s not all fast. There’s some big, heavy tracks on there. Very ornate. There’s some great fucking riffs on there, amazing. Yeah, can’t really speak much about Cradle. Obviously, it’s not a Cradle interview. That will come in time.”

The effort will be released in September 2017. Filth added the following about that:

“It’s gonna be delivered the second week of May, and the reason for… I mean, it’s not being pushed out or anything like that. Whatever we release, it’s usually about two years afterwards. I think it’s just the fact that I’ve got another band makes it look like it turns around quite quickly, but it has to be released in September because of new management planning this big world tour which has to start in America on a certain date. So, the album has to be delivered and released… It all has to fall into a certain place. You can’t just go ‘Oh, we missed our deadline. Sorry,’ because otherwise, you miss your slot with releasing and with the record company, and everything they’ve got planned. So yeah, we’re free to do what we want for a certain amount of months, but then it all has to fit into a schedule.”

He’s gonna put it out, if he is able to establish some tours and some work… It’s called Powerflow, it’s Sen Dog, Rogelio [Lozano] from Downset., Billy [Graziadei] from Biohazard, myself and Fernando Schaefer, which is a drummer in Worst—a Brazilian band, amazing drummer. If there’s some tours… I mean Prophets Of Rage is going out next year, there’s been talk about Powerflow being the opening band and also Tim‘s [Commerford] band [Wakrat.]”

Avenged Sevenfold Are Trying To Stop “The Best Of 2003-2015” Album Release

It was previously revealed that Avenged Sevenfold were getting sued by Warner Bros. for trying to get out of their contract by using the “seven-year rule” under California Labor Code, which “allows parties to leave personal service contracts under certain circumstances after seven years have passed.” The band originally owed the label another album, but after severing ties they ended up signing with Capitol under their own imprint to surprise release their new album “The Stage” on October 28. Now, according to TMZ, the band is trying to stop Warner Bros. from selling their greatest hits album “Best Of 2003-2015,” which the label released today (December 2). The band says they didn’t know about the effort beforehand, and that it violates their contract.
