OK, it’s not that he started it all on his own, but Cradle of Filth’s Dani Filth is in a new band and it’s called Temple of the Black Moon, which makes me think of the Temple of Doom and that dude who ripped people’s hearts out while chanting, “Kalimah!”
Describing themselves as creating “music for an evil film noir,” the new group also features Rob Caggiano of Anthrax and The Damned Things, King of Ov Hell and formerly of Gorgoroth, and The Cult’s John Tempesta, who was once in White Zombie.
“We had an innumerable amount of names that never seemed likely to stick, that was until we put our proverbial heads together and narrowed it down to just three or four, and then tossed for it (proverbially of course) using a silver Norwegian crown (we couldn’t find any proper money),” said Filth. “The name Temple of the Black Moon represents the rigorous worship of desire, (the black moon astrologically has always held association with the dark Goddess Lilith) and of course the ramifications of the lunar eclipse, always a herald for death and ill-omen.”
OK. Whatever you say, dude. The band’s debut studio offering is expected later this year or early next.
