CRADLE OF FILTH Frontman 'The Gospel Of Filth: A Black Metal Bible'; Details Revealed

"The Gospel of Filth: A Black Metal Bible", the new book written by music journalist Gavin Baddeley with the help of CRADLE OF FILTH frontman Dani Filth, is the boldest, most comprehensive and authoritative guide to the realms of darkness and devilry ever published. Taking in every significant milestone and major landmark, this lavishly illustrated volume will prove to be the definitive guide to the dark side for decades to come. From ancient formulae for conjuring the goddesses of hell, to the latest research on the psychopathology of serial murder, no tombstone remains unturned in this wide-ranging and witty dissection of the uncanny and unholy, of the esoteric and erotic. Music forms "The Gospel"'s entry point, but every medium, from movies and literature, to comics and computer games is considered, while the authorities consulted range from Oxford academics to metal musicians as well known for their criminal records as musical ones.
