Name: Daniel Firth


Birthday: 23/05/86


Place of residence: Glasgow, Scotland


Hobbies: Apart from all things musical, I also enjoy reading, writing, playing football, home brewing and hill walking.


Musical background: I had been playing electric guitar for about ten years before I picked up the bass and found it was well-suited to my style. I began playing in a local Misfits tribute band, devoting a good chunk of my free time to the instrument, before being offered to play for Scottish extreme metal band Man Must Die. After a recording session with MMD at Scott Atkins’s Grindstone Studios I became known to Cradle and got involved with them on ‘The Manticore and Other Horrors’.


Equipment: Schecter Hellraiser Extreme-5, Sansamp Bass Driver, Wharfedale Pro S-1500 power amp, Marshall 8x10, Rotosound Strings


Idols in Music: Steve Harris, Adrian Smith, Dave Murray, Bruce Dickinson, Chuck Schuldiner, Jeff Buckley, Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, Neil Peart, Devin Townsend, Freddie Mercury, Tony Iommi, Toby Driver, Trey Azagthoth, Paul Masvidal

Best CoF show so far: Hellfest 2013 was an incredible show for me. The whole setup was fantastic and the fans were out in force, giving it their all. Being right near the end of the touring cycle, it felt like a grand finale to my first full year in the band.


Fave CoF songs to perform: The Principle of Evil Made Flesh, Haunted Shores


How do you kill time on tour: I read a lot, do some writing and often explore the local surroundings, especially if there’s a nice hill or forest nearby.


Strangest experience on tour: Probably passing out during a border crossing, hung-over, whilst trying to get through with no passport, then being revived with toast. There have been more rock and roll experiences, but that one was pretty weird.


Place you would like to visit, but haven't: Japan, The Faroe Islands, New Zealand

Your fave bands: Iron Maiden, Death, Rush, Cynic, Lykathea Aflame, Devin Townsend, Sodom, Kreator, Slayer, Black Sabbath, Dream Theater, Jeff Buckley, Judas Priest, Manilla Road, Morbid Angel, Suffocation, Idlewild, Immolation, Napalm Death, Carcass, Queen, Running Wild, Sepultura, Manic Street Preachers, Savatage, Boards of Canada, Nick Drake, Rage, Maudlin of the Well


Fave food/drink: Cheese, mince and clapshot, tea, ale, whisky


Favourite authors: Iain (M.) Banks, Wilbur Smith, Isaac Asimov, Clive Barker, H.P. Lovecraft, Arthur C. Clarke, Alasdair Gray


Twelve favourite albums:

Iron Maiden – Seventh Son of a Seventh Son

Jeff Buckley – Grace

Cynic – Focus

Lykathea Aflame – Elvenefris

Slayer – Reign in Blood

Idlewild – 100 Broken Windows

Death – Human

Strapping Young Lad - City

Suffocation - Human Waste

Dream Theater – Images and Words

Message to the fans: You're a great bunch of lads and lasses, thanks for your support!
