CRADLE OF FILTH Frontman Becomes A Lord

According to, Dani "Filth" Davey's CRADLE OF FILTH bandmates have presented the singer with the title Lord Filth to celebrate the fact that he is leading the race to be named one of the top 10 icons of the U.K.'s Suffolk county.

"I'm looking into what my title allows, whether that's driving a flock of sheep through the town centre on a bank holiday or the keys to every inn and wine cellar in the county," Dani joked. "I've also been looking into a nice new country pile, the parties will be immense, the kind Lord Byron would throw if he had access to some SLAYER albums. I'm fully expecting it to help get me a better table when I eat out too, especially in the U.S. Ultimately this is a great opportunity to mess with people's perceptions."

The Suffolk Icons site was launched by Choose Suffolk, a partnership aimed at putting the county "on the map," and tourism manager Alex Paul told that the submission of Dani as an "icon" showed that there was more to Suffolk than just the traditional beauty spots.

"The web site has produced a great range of images and features of Suffolk," he said. "It's a creative tool. We didn't know what to expect because nothing like this has ever been done before.

"What's great is it's not just the obvious ones, there are unusual ones that are just as valid.

"There's no right or wrong here, although we are going to pull a few out.

"It's about everyone's voices being heard. It's not about going for the obvious and people feel that Dani Filth is an icon and is as important to people as a pint of Adnams."
