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…

Dani & Fans,


For your vulgar delectation:


“I’ve seen bodies fall through the sky, burning into ash that rains down on those too scared to fight and so quick to die.”

-Zado Masoch


The above quote is from the main character of my book “Omnion” (See this place, and know horror, for what lies here, is only death). However, the reason for this post isn’t to spam you with an ad for my book. The book (Omnion) and my eponymously titled website (J Edward Williams is my nom de plume) are easy enough to find, if you’re so inclined.


In truth, the real reason is to thank you for you keeping alive and spreading the flame all these years. You’ve given us so much ‘filth’ to revel in. In thanks, I want to both give back and contribute something to this community. An offering, if you will, and one that your work has had no small part in shaping.


Toward that end, as a show of backing my words, my book will be free to everyone for the next 40+ hours on Amazon (every Amazon in the world actually). In this way, you and your fans are out nothing, save a small bit of time. But read or not. Take what you will, leave what you don’t. In closing, another quote from Zado Masoch, a demon in a man’s form. (Like someone else we all know.)


“I will walk all over you and you will learn to love it. They call it evolution.”

-Zado Masoch

Yours forever in darkness,

J Edward Williams

In statu nascendi

Once, as the primordial gleam exalted in purest dignity, willing to kindle our perpetual glow of eternity; once, as inexplicable nonentity turned into one inarticulate infinity; as the entire perfectibility came out of simply singularity; yore, as a unique creation brought forth this inexhaustible continuation; dominant disorder and a compulsory confusion came forth to apply for their legitimate manifestation too.

You and those who are as petite as you are, use to imagine that the minute what you call life, is serving a significant, crucial expression which you try to identify as a higher purpose, and you believe to sense that your self-projected reality could tag along this self-created imagination of your evaporate illusions and fugitive visions; your escaping dreams and your dreamy desires; your absconding admirations and your vanishing wishes. - But there were times before your times; in eras before every era; in an age before all the ages, when your complete sense; yes your absolute nous, awoke out of the one single drop of an endless emptiness and divine beauty of an indecipherable cosmic chaos. For apparently infinite epochs and multitudinous shining periods there was no perceptible sagacity in the cosmic disorder of the order till the day as a cosmic anarchy begun to orchestrate with the supreme command, and inflamed the Big Bang of Spirit. - The true spirit of men comes out of the unknown space of their heart. The true heart of men is the nameless gizmo which crafts you wisdom and unlocks your inner and outer truths of essence; your entrance key for stepping light-hearted and happy-go-lucky through the worldly world. - The true wisdom of your heart is the magic key to salvation and blessedness. The tender brightness of your pure soul is the bright smile of the whole world. All creations in heaven and on earth are a reversible reflect of your own being. This being is on earth as in heaven.

Feeling the infinite adore of its own generator, floating, circulating and rotating through every sole fibre, every single breath and every inconspicuous, unobtrusive cell of your insignificant, inconsequential essence, is the utmost gift a human heart could ever endure. Serving the kind will of this only initiator of all the existences, all beings and all the essences, is the supreme gift a human soul may ever experience. Seeking the whole world as a combination back to this contriver; exploring and stepping through the unknown, tight and noisy jungle of the invincible, visible phantom called certainty, while setting imagined orientation points and self-created imaginations like close or far, white or black, parable or difference; the soul is often anxious, fractious, manoeuvred and insecure, Insecure of the possibilities which the never-ending creation offers, presents and represents, which shine to be interesting and admirable, inviting and tempting, pleasant and confident first, but at the end to be only insensitive or excruciating, malicious or apathetic, malevolent or indifferent.

The world which is around you, my friend, and whose part you are, is wonderful and has what your soul admires the most; its daily allurements and every bit of the nightly temptations, real seductions and some unreal introductions but also what represents the paramount in one sophisticated world; its responsibility, obligations and consideration. - Your soul is searching back for the light which is the seat of your soul.

- Enlightenment, my human child, is the most colossal gift that a human spirit could ever receive, and it starts in the true heart; the pure soul which found its true being through the incessant fervour in its heart. But how an essence could ever be truly exempted and purely sun-like shining without the spiritual orgasm inside its core; without understanding the grace, the beauty and divine of its originator through its vivid empathy?

Enlightened men have existed since mankind exists.

Hey Dan, hope you're well... xx
