Whoever says that Cradle are going down-hill are a bunch of hillbilly fucking morons who sit all day behind their fake IDs slagging all and sundry off because they actually have no life to speak of. But then, to be fair, they haven't heard the awesome new album tracks that are now at the halfway stage to recording (start date for the album is the end of November).

Anyhoo, on a more pleasant bend, we had a brilliant couple of days last week, firstly playing the Trutnoff festival in…

Dani Filth Tour Blog 13/02/14

The co-headline European tour with Behemoth is going great, from a sold-out show at the London Forum to a furious headline gig in Paris, it's been a f**king blast!

Yesterday we had a quite a packed day off metro-ing it around Paris, photos of which I will be posting over the coming day or so as I collate them on my travels. Keep those peepers peeled.

The picture below was taken in the Catacombs far below Paris where 6 million human remains are interred in ornate skull and bone…

What had you go from Lemon Grove to CoF?  That had I had to ask because CoF was your first known heavy metal band -- I auditioned for heavy metal bands and they told me,  "You're too dark. We want to be more like Motley Crue or Guns 'n Roses your vocal is too frightening for a melodic vocalist.  It's frightening because such black metal style lyrics coming from that kind of vocalist is dangerous." as I was exploring the themes known as Dark Metal.

We got  game going on facebook -- a three way contest who can cause the most controversy just for shits and giggles.  The game -- well it was my birthday's party game -- have you ever heard of the game Controversy Tag? You saw mine on the table.  Your turn. Virgina Creeper caused some controversy with his photos -- I just proved the controversy I can do can rival you on many levels.  I disrupted the system of how Lulu.com works when I got my files back -- you will see the painting I pulled out and if you heard Washington is Next by Megadeth you will know where that is going.     The rules -- post the most controversial photo you can find or write a very controversial post or find a controversial video on youtube.com and toss it on your blog;  this anthology I am doing let's take the controversy levels on work safe aspects because this is going to cause a shit storm because my contributor and editor I am training are doing controversial photographs.

Welcome to tumblr.com man -- I found the larger photo that was taken by my ex-room mate.  Thanx for taking my buddy Drake under your wing.   If he ever gets homesick man -- just send him to my profile and he will feel like he's in Carol Stream; also get this for him -- Lindsay has the discount code to get this one for 28% off.  He may have the book but you guys will be fighting over it too. Tumblr.com became my playground as I go as my short name over there -- I am toying with Eric Hovind; I sure you know about Dr. Dino -- I debunk people like him. I figured I can give you something to play with when you're on tumblr.com -- hell you have my blog to thumb around as I heard from Ripley's Believe it or Not...
