Devilment putting finishing touches on new album


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.”

Devilment released their video for Sanity Hits A (Perfect) Zero last year, while further album details will be issued in due course.

They’ll tour the UK this December.
