Devilment putting finishing touches on new album
Exclusive: Cradle Of Filth and Devilment frontman Dani Filth says follow-up to 2014's The Great And Secret Show is 'Marilyn Manson-meets-Rob Zombie'
Dani Filth has confirmed that the next Devilment album is finished.
The Cradle Of Filth and Devilment frontman says they're putting the finishing touches on the follow-up to 2014's The Great And Secret Show – which was overseen by producer Scott Atkins at Suffolk's Grindstone Studios.
Filth tells TeamRock: "We literally finished it at the weekend. We did mastering then – it was a very lengthy night. It's all done and we're in the process of putting the artwork and the lyrics all together for delivery by next week."
"It's been a bloody hectic last couple of weeks – long nights. But it sounds fantastic now it's all done. The production is awesome.
"Scott put the hours into this one more because I think he has a vested interest. He's a good friend and we're a local band – we're all within 30 miles of each other."
Speaking about the album's sound, Filth says: "It's a bit like fucked-up Manson meets Rob Zombie. It's really heavy with pop sensibilities and really strange parts. I wouldn't go and say it's commercial as such. It sounds a lot more muso."
He adds: "It's a big step forward from the last record – and it's a lot darker than that too. I think it's going to surprise a lot of people."
They'll tour the UK this December.
