Dani Filth’s Side Project, Devilment, Drops Video Interview + Track List

Cradle of Filth’s Dani Filth has a side project called Devilment, which melds the worlds of horror and heavy metal with perfect precision. Today the band has not only dropped the second installment of their video interview series, but they also revealed the album’s track listing (see below). The album, The Great and Secret Show, is scheduled to be released on, of all dates, Halloween 2014 (that’s October 31st for the numbskulls).

In the video interview, as seen in the player above, Dani, Daniel Finch (guitar & samples), and Lauren Francis (keyboards & vocals) talk about the album’s title, its artwork, and lyrical concept. And anything that’s in some part inspired by Clive Barker has to be awesome, right?

Dani Filth had this to say about the album:

Our debut album, The Great And Secret Show, is a horror-metal fueled slay ride of maleficent proportions. All of us in the band are really looking forward to the forthcoming months, as the proverbial war machine kicks into gear and the album surfaces like some sub-aquatic monster hellbent on smashing stuff. Until then, keep a cyclopean eye out for regular social media updates, videos, and the announcement of live shows to further whet your appetite.

Devilment has already released the first single from The Great and Secret Show. Check out “Mother Kali” right here:

The Great And Secret Show was recorded at Grindstone Studios in Suffolk with producer Scott Atkins, who has previously worked with the likes of Cradle of Filth, Behemoth, Amon Amarth, Sylosis, and Gama Bomb. The artwork was created by legendary Drake Mefestta.

Adds Filth:

The album cover depicts an intended escape by one of Jack The Ripper’s victims, (followed as she is down a moonlit Victorian alley) into another enchanted realm. Some might read it as an imagined release from the horrible pain to follow, but the artist Drake Mefestta and I thought it served to show the lure of the mystical, amid a sea of debauch. The artwork that follows in the booklet is a stunning articulate walkthrough of that enchanted realm. The album is entitled The Great And Secret Show and concerns itself with the occult pulse behind the world, a land of imagination that can be slipped into at will. Like a generator buzzing behind everything. The truth behind the Wizard’s curtain. A phantasmagorical nightscape. A wonderland. A midnight playground. The fertile land of the dead.
