It’s bad enough that Metal’s biggest clown next to Fred Durst, Dani Filth, is inflicting a musical massacre over in North America with his band of drag queens, Cradle of Filth, but he didn’t have to write an entire essay on it, Jesus.
If you really want to read Dani’s tour blog (why?) then you can check it out over at Metal Hammer.
It’s not often I get personal on this site, but as an English man, I sincerely apologize on the behalf of Cradle of Filth, and everyone involved in that band, for all the noise pollution they are currently causing in the United States and Canada. I hope you can forgive the UK.
Today was just one of those days, I didn’t want to wake up, and everything was just, well, fuck to be honest. So what did I do? I didn’t “break stuff” like I’m Fred Durst and the year is 1999, but I wanted to show the world that I was hardcore, that I was Metal, and that I am not to be messed with.
What was the best way to achieve this? Well I used the handy tutorial above and dressed like Dani Filth from Cradle of Filth. Then everyone knew that I was serious business, and that I don’t compromise.
I looked, like, totally awesome. Ok, so my boss fired me, my girlfriend dumped me and the school kids at the train station laughed and threw rocks at me, but who cares? I’m fuckin’ Metal.
Regarless of whether you think Cradle of Filth‘s frontman, Dani Filth is an icon or not, it doesn’t matter, because the judges of the U.K.’s Choose Suffolk (why would anyone choose Suffolk? Seriously) Icons contest have kindly decided for you, that he is not.
Despite gaining 13,025 votes, 11,806 more than the nearest rival, in the Suffolk Icons contest, Dani Filth was dropped from the contest, for, what seems like, no reason at all. Other than the judges are probably old farts that don’t want to see any “horrid” Metal polluting their contest and county. Hey, can’t say I blame them though, and it’s not like Cradle of Filth are real Metal anyways.

According to Kerrang, Cradle of Filth‘s verbal (and visual) diarrhea, Dani Filth, has some how acquired a lordship. Whatever; whether it’s Lord Filth, Mr Filth, Dani Filth. It’s all still Filth.
Lord Filth commented:
“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” commented the attention seeking Filth. “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.”
In other news, the band’s Darkly Darkly Venus Aversa is out now. So make sure to avoid that and buy some Slayer albums instead.
Dani Filth (most likely not his real name) of Cradle of Filth was recently interviewed by the site, I Like Music (which in itself is fairly ironic), in which Mr Filth makes a variety of jokes comments.
Dani claims the band like to make no two albums the same. That said, they don’t seem to be against making over 10 million albums of the exact same music. Dani then goes on to criticise British Pop singer, Cheryl Cole, for “not being able to sing.” Am I missing something here, or has Dani never listened to his own singing?
Read the interview over at I Like Music.
Good news then, Cradle of Filth have released a new video for Forgive Me Father (I Have Sinned), taken from the forthcoming album, Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa, due for release November 1st.
