Devilment Premiere “Full Dark, No Stars” Lyric Video

Devilment, the band featuring Cradle Of Filth’s Dani Filth, have premiered a lyric video for their new song “Full Dark, No Stars” This song is from their new album, “Devilment II: The Mephisto Waltzes,” which will be released on November 18.

Filth said the following:

“The title for this song is taken from a Stephen King horror anthology, much as the title of our first album was lifted from a book by Clive Barker (The Great And Secret Show) though there is no correlation between the book and the song, other than it represents a bleak period; a state of wanton depression; an absence of being. It is, much like many songs on this album, about regaining the light, the overcoming of demons, and of triumphing over the immense shadow of fear itself.”

Devilment Premiere “Hitchcock Blonde” Music Video

Devilment, the band featuring Cradle Of Filth’s Dani Filth, have premiered a new video for their new song “Hitchcock Blonde,” via Metal Hammer. This song is from their new album, “Devilment II: The Mephisto Waltzes,” which will be released on November 18.

Filth said the following:

“The song is pretty self-explanatory. This is all about [Alfred] Hitchcock’s infatuation with his onscreen heroines: cool, controlled, aloof and sophisticated blondes. It even namechecks ten of his favorite actresses.”

Devilment Premiere New Song “Under The Thunder”

Devilment, the band featuring Cradle Of Filth’s Dani Filth, have premiered a new song titled “Under The Thunder.” This song is from their new album, “Devilment II: The Mephisto Waltzes,” which will be released on November 18.

Filth said the following:

“A forced hand. A warning. A call to arms. Retribution undertaken by a wronged nation double-crossed on the land of their noble forbears. The song is a powerful metaphor for justified retaliation on a common enemy and the onset of the storm.”

The band posted the following:

Witch County nefarious frights Devilment – led by vehement frontman Dani Filth, are incredibly pleased to announce their forthcoming masterpiece ‘Devilment II: The Mephisto Waltzes’. The record, which is the follow up to 2014’s debut ‘The Great And Secret Show’, will be released by Nuclear Blast Entertainment on 18th November 2016.

Dani had this to say on the subject of the new record:
“Everybody in Devilment is very excited about the prospect of releasing our latest album, ‘II – The Mephisto Waltzes’, which we have worked extremely hard on. The album is definitely a step-up from our debut, featuring a more mature, dissonant presence coupled with a darker edge, yet at the same time utilising our better musical assets to deliver a unique metal hybrid. I don’t even know what to classify it!”

Dani’s crew have meticulously pieced together a second blood-spattered batch of deranged anthems that brings vastly more colour, intensity and lyrical versatility to this band’s spectral palate. The second Devilment record makes no splintered bones about its nefarious intent, offering a bewildering torrent of disparate and demented ideas and delivering them with refined, ultra-gothic panache and several jolting doses of Dani’s trademark verbal subterfuge. Assisted by long-time collaborators Lauren Francis (keys and vocals), Colin Parks (guitar), Nick Johnson (bass) and new drummer Matt Alston, Dani has arrived at the telling moment where Devilment become a genuine force to be reckoned with.

Regarding the album’s artwork, Dani revealed:
“Winner of many international awards, the artist for the new Devilment album is Elena Vizerskayaaka Kassandra, whose photography and photo-manipulation perfectly complements the mysterious and magickal world of Devilment. Elena’s work is sometimes compared to Dali and Magritte due to the complexity of artistic figures and the perceptible amount of layers, something to be felt and not necessarily understood, exotic dreams filled with reflections and allusion. I have been a fan of Elena’s work for a long while now and had originally wanted to utilise it for the Cradle Of Filth album, ‘The Manticore And Other Horrors’ as far back as 2011, which only fell through when band politics intervened and an in-house label artist was used instead.”

“In conjunction with Elena, the booklet was compiled and further augmented with illustration by Dan Goldsworthy, who has also undertaken album artwork for the likes of Accept, Hell, Xentrix, Gloryhammer and Sylosis, amongst others. His contribution to the album has provided it with a minimalist dark uniformity, punctuated by slick and classily macabre imagery, the perfect balance to Elena’s gorgeously vibrant photography.”

The album was produced, recorded, mixed and mastered at Grindstone Studios by close friend and long term collaborator Scott Atkins (Cradle Of Filth, Behemoth, Sylosis, Savage Messiah…), between March and July of this year.

Dani added:
“Scott has worked very closely with the band to share our vision and we are very proud of the finished result, especially the megalithic production values and the hammered-home emphasis on song writing.”
