Devilment - To Release Debut Album, First Single Online


You have probably heard of Devilment before in previous reports. The band is fronted by Dani Filth (Cradle Of Filth, Temple Of The Black Moon) and has now signed a deal with Nuclear Blast Entertainment with plans to release the band's first full length The Great And Secret Show this autumn. Their first single "Mother Kali" can be heard here. Do you like what you hear?

The band consists of Dani Filth (vocals), Daniel Finch (guitar and samples) Colin Parks (rhythm guitar/lead guitar), Nick Johnson (bass guitar), Aaron Boast (drums), Lauren Francis (keyboards and vocals). The band's debut album was recorded at Grindstone Studios in Suffolk with producer Scott Atkins, who has previously worked with the likes of Cradle Of Filth, Behemoth, Amon Amarth, Sylosis and Gama Bomb. The artwork was created by Drake Mefestta.









Dani Filth had this to say about the signing: "I am thrilled to be a part of the Nuclear Blast family with my other band, the Witch County fiends Devilment. Our debut album The Great And Secret Show is a horror-metal fuelled slay ride of maleficent proportions and deserves some deep infernal love from a label that has dominated the metal market for aeons. And we have found that unconditional love at Nuclear Blast. All of us in the band are really looking forward to the forthcoming months, as the proverbial war machine kicks into gear and the album surfaces like some sub-aquatic monster hellbent on smashing stuff. Until then keep a cyclopean eye out for regular social media updates, videos and the announcement of live shows to further whet your appetite..."

Adds Filth about the cover: "The album cover depicts an intended escape by one of Jack The Ripper's victims, (followed as she is down a moonlit Victorian alley) into another enchanted realm. Some might read it as an imagined release from the horrible pain to follow, but the artist Drake Mefestta and I thought it served to show the lure of the mystical, amid a sea of debauch. The artwork that follows in the booklet is a stunning articulate walk-through of that enchanted realm. The album is entitled The Great And Secret Show and concerns itself with the occult pulse behind the world, a land of imagination that can be slipped into at will. Like a generator buzzing behind everything. The truth behind the Wizards curtain. A phantasmagorical nightscape. A wonderland. A midnight playground. The fertile land of the dead."

I like the cover artwork, but the song might require more spin as it did not really impress me.

I actually prefer this to the last couple recent CoF tracks I checked out and was just annoyed by. I think with the way his voice has gone in the last decade, and how boring and played out the theatrical narrative cliché of CoF is, a more stripped down music and deeper tone in his vocals suits him better. And now that Paul Allender is gone, again, I'd say Dani should consider laying CoF to rest and just continue with this band. At this point I'll listen to Devilment long before I'll go back to CoF.

The song may not be a master piece yet I like it and I like the idea that CoF has done its time and that Dani is still moving on. Manticore sounds like tired and uninspired CoF (and I love ALL of their other albums tho !). So Devilment may be a band to follow

Between Paul Allender leaving CoF and Dani presumably being far more focused on this, I think I can safely assume the next Cradle album will blow ass, if it's ever released.

First (before listening) I thought it was a Dissection rip-off, but it's nothing like that.
Good song.

Hey guys. I am an ukranian metalhead and I need your help. I am a great fan of CoF and I am very glad Dani has started this project called "Devilment". I have listened to all the songs of the new album and the best one for me is "Summer Arteries". But, as I am not a native speaker, I don't really understand all the words of that song. So I would be glad if you guys could type the lyrics here. Don't think I am stupid and never tried looking for them in the Web. I tried and found nothing. So please, be kind and help me if you can. Best regards from Ukraine!
