CRADLE OF FILTH Frontman Interviewed In Sydney (Video)

Music Feeds conducted an interview with vocalist Dani "Filth" Davey of British extreme metallers CRADLE OF FILTH on May 11 in Sydney, Australia. You can now watch the chat below.

As previously reported, Dani has completed work on a poetry book, "Across The River Bedlam", for release later in the year. The book, which will contain "poems that [Dani has] written from time to time over the years," will include illustrations by Sam Araya, the artist responsible for CRADLE OF FILTH's "Thornography" and "Harder, Darker, Faster" releases as well as various COF t-shirt designs.

Artwork that will be included in the book can be found at this location.

In other news, CRADLE OF FILTH is working on an adult comic book, the story for which has been scripted by the comic writer Kurt Amacker (with assistance from Dani Filth). Several artists are in the process of mocking up some example pages for the prospective publishers. Dani states: "I am very excited about this venture, as it promises to be a very adult story woven straight from the CRADLE OF FILTH universe, featuring a liberated Oscar Wilde, the Demoness Lilith, nefarious sexual magickal practices and an errant Suffolk Lord who is in the unenviable process of being charged under 19th-century blasphemy laws, discovering himself engaged in a nightmarish occult netherworld."

CRADLE OF FILTH's tenth studio album, "The Manticore And Other Horrors", sold 4,500 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 96 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band's previous full-length effort, "Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa", opened with 5,800 units in November 2010 to land at No. 99.
