MADBALL bassist Hoya Roc has uploaded a photo to the Lockerz.com social networking site which purportedly shows CRADLE OF FILTH frontman Dani Filth being forcibly restrained to the floor, allegedly by a security guard, at yesterday’s (Thursday, July 14) Lez’Arts Scéniques festival in Sélestat, France where both bands performed. Roc‘s caption accompanying the picture reads as follows: “When metal fantasy goes wrong !! Haha cradle of filth singer gettin yoked up by security”
CRADLE OF FILTH guitarist Paul Allender revealed in a recent interview that the band has started writing material for a new album. The British extreme metal group is scheduled to take time out from touring until the end of next year in order to focus on writing the new CD. “We don’t want any distractions, we don’t want anything coming in the way of us writing,” Allender told Heavy Worlds at last month’s Gods Of Metal festival in Italy. “That’s why we know it’s gonna be damn good.”
He added, “People ask, how do you write to a concept album… we don’t. All the songs are written as individual tracks on their own. When the music’s done, we send it to Dani and he decides whether it’s gonna be a concept album or what the songs are gonna be about.”
Allender is confident that CRADLE OF FILTH‘s follow-up to last year’s “Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa” will take the band to new heights.
“A lot of people have said we have come back true to form, and what we are hearing now is that they reckon that our best is still to come,” Allender said. “I do believe this next one will be…. The ideas that we have got for the new album, what we’re writing soon, what we’ve started writing already, is fucking killer.”
