Yes, folks — the same Dani Filth from Cradle of Filth is now the Dani Filth who fronts Devilment, a band from Ipswich.
Originally formed by Daniel J. Finch back in late 2011 amidst a bout of religious delirium, Devilment consisted of drummer Simon Dawson (Steve Harris), bassist Justin Walker and keyboardist Kieron De-Courci.
The band could never find a steady vocalist. Until now.
Filth, “although not entirely stable mentally,” agreed to help out on a couple of tracks, which then turned swiftly into a studio demo, completed after Dani finished work on Cradle’s The Manticore And Other Horrors last summer.
The demo, known as Grotescapology, features eight tracks, which, although psychotically competent, were used solely as a backbone for a new line-up when Simon Dawson suddenly departed to record and tour the Steve Harris British Lion album. The other two members also bailed.
But the band has bounced back with bassist Nick Johnson, guitarist Dan Jackson and drummer Aaron Boast.
Here’s what Devilment sounds like.
