Twiztid Premiere New Video For “Neon Vamp” Featuring Cradle Of Filth’s Dani Filth

Twiztid have premiered a new video for their latest single “Neon Vamp.“ That track features Cradle Of Filth’s Dani Filth and it will appear on the band’s new album “Unlikely Prescription,” which is set to be released on September 10.

Twiztid’s Jamie Madrox previously commented:

“I’ve always respected Dani Filth and the legacy he has etched out in the world of metal and wondered what would it sound like if our musical worlds collided like peanut butter & chocolate! And like a true legend he rose to the challenge and what we recorded is the most anticipated collaboration effort in a great long while!

Filth added:

“It was awesome to collaborate on a such a genre (monster) mash-up with the guys in Twiztid.

Slightly reticent at first, when I heard the track i was like, ‘this is actually very very sick!’ and the vampiric subject matter quickly decided it for me. I really like the song, it’s bristling with dark energy and it definitely carries that ‘Blade’ nite-club vibe about it’s rap/metal swagger. I hope fans of both both bands and genres enjoy the track just as much as I did in helping forge the beast.

Like a vampire telling you to suck it, having a nice day?

We’re here to corrupt it!!!

Hell yeah!”

Cradle Of Filth’s Dani Filth Says He Has Been E-Mailing With Ed Sheeran About A Possible Collaboration

As previously reported, Ed Sheeran recently said that he would be open to the possibility of making a metal album. Now, during a recent interview with Kerrang! Radio, Cradle Of Filth frontman Dani Filth revealed that he has been e-mailing with Sheeran about a possible collaboration.

Filth said the following:

“I’ve actually been e-mailing with him… He actually touched base with me. I’ve been invited up to his place. Well, he said he could come down to mine, but I pointed out to him that I don’t own my own bar or village, and it’d be better if I went there.

He said he’d do anything. Quite literally. He said he’s a massive fan. He seems like a genuinely very nice guy actually.”

He also said that he doesn’t think the idea is far fetched:

“We’ve always been like that. If someone tells us not to do something, then we’ll do it. That’s been our prerogative the whole time. I did this rap song with this band called Twiztid in America. It’s actually turned out more like Rammstein and Beastie Boys than full-on rap. So, in that respect, I think it the Ed Sheeran collaboration would be great fun. I think it’d be great if we did it for charity, because at least it would bring a bit of credibility to it. Because obviously to his public, it’d be, like, Oh my god, he’s got this weird comical guy,’ and to my public it’d be, like, ‘Oh my god, this is a bit weird, isn’t it? But I think that sort of thing nowadays works.”

Ed Sheeran Says He Is Open To Making A Death Metal Album

During a recent interview with The Sun, pop star Ed Sheeran revealed that he is open to making a death metal album. He said the following about that:

“I was really into death metal as a kid. I listened to Cradle Of Filth and Slipknot and all that stuff. I’m not saying I could ever step into that world. I learnt all those riffs on guitar as a kid. That’s something I’ve never thought about doing — but something I would not be opposed to creating.”

Notably, Cradle Of Filth frontman Dani Filth also responded to the article:

“I’ll believe it when I see it. Fellow Suffolk lad could come good in the end. ‘Dracula’s Castle On The Hill’ anyone?”

Cradle Of Filth Announce Comic Book Anthology Series “Maledictus Athenaeum”

Cradle Of Filth have teamed up with Incendium and Heavy Metal Entertainment for a new comic book anthology series titled “Maledictus Athenaeum.” The series will be released through a new music-focused imprint called Opus.

Here’s a description of the series [via Blabbermouth]

“In the ruined halls of the Maledictus Athenaeum lie occult histories, sealed records, and cursed artifacts. This unholy archive explores the far corners of Cradle Of Filth’s musical legacy, a vast universe of Ageless Vampires, Mythical Creatures and Vengeful Gods. The Countess, The Huntress, Lilith, The Manticore, and many more, will be revisited in stories from an all-star roster of comics talent from the pages of Heavy Metal magazine and beyond.

“Maledictus Athenaeum” begins as a five-issue series. The first print edition of each issue will be released as a prestige format limited edition collectible comic book, featuring cardstock covers, specialty foil treatments, glossy pages, and individual numbering. Each first printing will be limited to 2500 copies at $16.66, and available to order from this location. The first issue is available to order now and ships May 2021.”

Dani Filth commented:

“Cradle Of Filth’s collaboration with Incendium for the forthcoming comic series and action figures provides an incredible opportunity for fans to indulge and explore the mythologies and murk at the heart of the band’s lyrical compositions. As an avid collector of horror figures for decades now — citing the enclosing walls and shelves of my home crammed with toys and memorabilia as an example — I was only too eager to embrace this emphatic union with a company that is as excited about bringing our brand of lascivious gothic darkness to glorious undeath as we are.”

Incendium CEO Llexi Leon added:

“Dani has created such a rich mythology across Cradle Of Filth’s discography and we’re thrilled to explore those dark fantasy worlds with our ‘Maledictus Athenaeum’ anthology, an ever-growing gothic library that’s sure enthral readers with an irresistible blend of horror, romance, mystery, and mayhem — featuring incredible visuals to inspire all manner of toys and collectibles across our lines.”

The first wave of the toys they mentioned include action figures based on Dani Filth and the Succubus from the cover art for the band’s 2001 album “Bitter Suites To Succubi.” Those are available HERE and will ship in June 2021. Filth had the following to say about the figures:

“To begin with are figures of ‘yours ghoulie’ Dani Filth resplendent in my onstage battle outfit; accompanied to war by the cruel, domineering Succubus from the ‘Bitter Suites To Succubi’ album cover art, who is explored further in the first of many comic book adaptations to be unleashed in ‘Maledictus Athenaeum’. Both figures come delivered with classic action figure aplomb, whilst the comic book art is both visceral and evocative and is totally stunning. Naturally we cannot wait for fans and collectors alike to get their claws on these unique, exquisite treasures and given the depth of Cradle Of Filth’s extensive discography and with a wealth of dark occultisms to draw upon — having tackled the morbid and sordid tales of Elizabeth Bathory, Gilles de Rais, Lucifer and Lilith as full-blown concept albums already — our collaboration with Incendium promises to be a marriage forged in Hell that prospers for aeons…”

Cradle Of Filth’s Dani Filth To Appear In Upcoming Horror Film “Baphomet”

Cradle Of Filth frontman Dani Filth is set to appear in the upcoming horror film “Baphomet.” The movie, which was directed by Matthan Harris, will be released on June 8 and it will find Filth playing an occultist expert named “Lon Carlson.” Here’s an official synopsis for the film:

“The Richardson family celebrates their 28-year-old daughter’s pregnancy in Northern California. The celebration is interrupted when a Satanic cult member, Aksel Brandr, pays them an unexpected visit. Aksel, on behalf of the cult’s leader Henrik Brandr, offers to pay the family a large sum for ownership of their land. Jacob Richardson, the father, rejects the offer due to the priceless sentimental value of their home. Henrik and his cult, displeased, begin to put devastating curses on the Richardsons, trying to force them off their land – even if it means murdering them. After suffering unexplainable tragedies, the Richardsons seek help from Marybeth, a white witch high priestess. They soon discover a terrible secret about their home, revealing why it is so valuable to the cult. They realize they must protect their property from the cult at all costs, and a violent battle between good and evil ensues.”

Dani Filth Says Cradle Of Filth’s New Album Will Contain “Massive Choruses And Melancholic Drop-Downs”

Cradle Of Filth’s Dani Filth has taken to social media to reflect on 2020 and discuss the band’s plans for next year. Among the topics mentioned was the group’s new album, which the frontman says will feature “massive choruses and melancholic drop-downs.”

Here’s Filth’s full message:

“Greeting fellow Filthlings…

It has, without question, been a very strange year, but one not without interest.

In fact, I have to selfishly say that I have really enjoyed it despite the isolation and lack of live touring; it at least contributed to what may be our best album of current years, if not all time.

That being said, many sincere condolences for those who’ve had to suffer with COVID either by becoming infected and ill, or those who have lost loved ones.

So, there was absolutely no pressure to turn the album in, in fact there really was nothing better to do than indulge our creative juices and thus a huge swathe of the year was spent in the sultry depths of the Suffolk countryside polishing and perfecting our latest musical excretion.

It’s an absolute killer of an album (if you forgive my self-flattery), with an immense production courtesy of Scott Atkins and Grindstone studios once again and I’d like to be able to describe it to you but there is so much bubbling intently in this album… Fast and slow parts (and faster still), new delectable flavours and those reminiscent of earlier COF albums galore, massive choruses and melancholic drop-downs, old skool melodic NWOBM amid furious, scathing black metal amid apocalyptic groove and we as a band can’t wait for everyone to hear it…. And more importantly, experience our birthed monster live.

Of course the postponed Cradle of Filth livestream is happening in February and that promises to rival the production we put into our fabled London Palladium show of last year, so there’s still plenty of time to purchase online tickets if you want to see Cradle as big and as soon as possible, complete with our as yet-undisclosed new keyboardist/backing singer, who has waited patiently in the wings for over a year without due merit. I must add that her contribution to the new album has been exceptional, as has the rest of the band’s.

So what else does the new year have for Cradle of Filth I hear you ponder?

Well, aside from the new album and livestream, we are working on getting our Pale Countess pale ale produced in different territories as soon as possible; tours are now being booked for the third and fourth quarters of the year (with a slew of amazing touring partners); our custom Cradle guitars (both Vempire and Midian models) courtesy of Vorona Instruments are now well into production; lots of exciting new announcements are also to be set in motion in and around the launch and lastly, our Pitch Black North tea, VE cosmetics make-up pallets, Electric Bear Brewing beer, Corpsepaint soap, Drop Dead clothing collaboration and my VShout video shoutouts are all still available, albeit in dwindling quantities for the limited items.

So, thanks once again to our loyal and expectant fans, the Crewdle Of Filth (who’ve had a wholly uneventful working year), our management team at Oracle, all our professional associates near and far and the friends we’ve gathered along the way but haven’t been able to meet due to the spread of this f**king pandemic… Salutations! We can’t wait to crawl back out on the road and see you again; Fans, bands, friends and fiends alike, countries, venues, staff, tourbus drivers, that washing machine in Prattein…

Lastly, thank you Laura Woodley for her continuing online finesse and to New Rock and Blackcraft Clothing for their ongoing swaddling.

Exciting times indeed! Unless this is the actual Apocalypse.

So may you find peace this holiday season and remember to cherish the things clutched deep to your vampire hearts.

And here’s to a better, more productive year in 2021!

Stay FILTHy!
