We arrived in Seoul at a reasonable hour and were greeted by the promoter and his interpreter, who not only is playing in the support band the next night, but also owns the club where we will be playing and a bar where we undoubtedly will end up partying in after.
The lengthy journey into the city via a giant red penis statue, finds us at yet another luxurious hotel (The Marigold-just constructed) where we have enough time allocated to drop off our travel bomb sites before heading out…

Not a huge amount to write about for this insert as its a lengthy travel day to Hong Kong via a five hour lay-off in Kuala Lumpur once again and after the last few days travelling and playing in the heat, plus the 'do' everybody had last night, we are all genuinely tired to fuck. Still, our humour remains intact as we troll through check-in/security/ boarding gate/plane and Big Martin's…
Native to Paraguay, Samuel Araya has been illustrating games for companies like White Wolf, Green Ronin and Paizo Publishing, and you may know his work in that genre.
This is not that show.
This collection features new works (never before seen!) as well as a set of illustrations used for the upcoming book of poetry by frontman Dani Filth (of band Cradle of Filth). Dark,mysterious, beautiful and disturbing,…

The show day in Argentina begins with a lengthy lay-in at the hotel and a
hearty breakfast, with plenty of time to catch up with the necessities of life, like back to back episodes of CSI and dyeing my hair, which seems to have aged considerably within the last four or five flights.
The day starts with an accursed alarm call, a gallon of coffee and a very early check-in for the two flights to Costa Rica, the first via El Salvador where we will be playing tomorrow, the rising sun chasing us down the runway as we point ourselves towards our heavenly goal.
Delirious from the outset, the flight makes little sense as we are so tired that everything passes like a blur, one minute I'm captivated by the loud on board announcements, the next I'm waking up on the…
The tour started with a five am roll call at Springvale studios, which was running an hour late from the off, meaning that I was the only one sitting down at the rehearsal room whilst my pick-up was sixty odd miles away on this cold, chilly April morning. However, having loaded everything up from the Cradle Of Filth equipment shed, we made up for time by telling James and Daniel to get cabs to Heathrow airport from central London to avoid us getting caught in the building congestion…Continue
Good evening Filthmongers,
I thought I'd quickly write a blog before departing for Mexico this week to undertake Cradle Of Filth's tour of South America.
Everything is go and we are all presumably well-rehearsed. I say presumably as I haven't seen any of the band since finishing the European tour late last December! A bit tricky when you all live in different parts of the world it has to be said.
Anyhoo, I do know that we are all very excited about playing together live again,…
Greetings once again friends and fallacies,
Dani here, riddled with Seasonal Affective Disorder. For, despite the gothic ambience of drizzling rain and wind lashing about the backdrop of the Suffolk countryside, I would die for a tropical day sat in the shade of palm tree about now, Midnight-hogging Vampire Overlord or not. The weather is miserable and cold. My Mother came back from India to two foot of snow, the colour of lightly cooked steak to a house so cold you could ice your…
The week we were due to receive our US performance visas truly was one of the worst weeks of my life, as it launched itself blazing into nightmare with the rotten news that the US tour was being cancelled. Believe you me, there is still no one more pissed off about this than me, over nothing more than a silly visa issue. Still, what can you do, the more you complain about the immigration laws, the less likely we are to get in next time we intend to…
It has indeed been six/seven weeks since our return from our successful European tour with Godseed, Rotting Christ, Blynd and Darkend in joyous tow, so it feels only right to at last commit pen to paper and fill you all in on what has been happening of late in the Cradle Of Filth camp.
Sweden is cold. Still, the venue is close and labyrinthine, there are early showers and clothes washing facilities, nice food and some nice solidarity after the sluggish day off.
The door to the bus still entrances me with its jet propulsion hydraulics
that threaten to clamp you against the bus's metal bosom should it catch
you, which it really fucking tries to do every time I try and shut it. It's like a carnivorous door on the…

I'm surprised that I even made it as far as the tour bus considering the hectic week that led to it's to chaotic beginnings.
Chaos heaped upon chaos. But in a nice way.
The week of doom really started in the previous Friday taking my wife Toni and Daughter, Luna (plus chum) to Thorpe Park theme park for one of their Hallowe'en nights, highlights being the Saw ride, Nemesis…
Greetings fellow munchkins,
At last I can verify that the witch is dead.
The album is finished, and indeed finally titled; The Manticore and Other Horrors is officially signed, sealed and delivered to the Devil's doorstep with a note written in spidery ink apologising for the delay.
Of which there was basically none come to think of it, as we worked…Continue
Greetings fellow travellers on the B1088 trunk road to darkness!
Plenty of news to pass onto you this time, just like that horrid rash the pills were for.
I know I promised you an update to arrive almost a month earlier than it has, but please rest assured that my absence has been totally necessary and hopefully you will feel justly rewarded by the news that the album has now progressed into the mixing stage, with nothing more than the choirs and female vocals to…
Dear voracious night-gaunts,
Salutations from the void as we prepare for the sweltering morbidity of Summer and the rigorous studio session that awaits the band as we prepare to begin recording our new, as yet untitled, tenth studio album (though there are numerous titles floating about the ether, most of them ludicrous, some a little more befitting…).
April 21st is the day that our much-anticipated 'Midnight In The Labyrinth' orchestral album is to be…
