Dani has posted a lengthy blog on his myspace page. The blog states that Cradle Of Filth have started working on a new album with "the skeletal structures of a few songs laid out", sounding "very much like the 'Godspeed...' album thrust up a gear".

He once again emphasises how stupid it was to sell such "candy balls" at this year's Bloodstock Open Air, regarding the incident that happened.

And also reminds us that his new book five years in the making, "The Gospel Of Filth" is finally ready to ore-order from the band's website.

Greetings to all you merchants of menace and skinny villainesses, Dani here again with a belated update on all things fantastic and filthy;

At the time of writing, September is almost through, with skies fire-paved and a gorgeous Indian Summer settling like a phoenix on the East coast of England, the last few weeks finding me extremely busy with the trivialities of being at home and working in a band at the same time. Thus creativity has flourished under this wonderful boon and the first ideas for a new Cradle album have started to creep and crawl in the far-flung shadows of our combined imaginations. Bearing in mind we have merely the skeletal structures of a few songs laid out, that Autumnal vibe is already spreading like a mist, and the tunes are sounding very malefic indeed. Very much like the 'Godspeed...' album thrust up a gear.

Paul has moved to a luxury apartment on the dockside quay in Ipswich, the apocalyptic vision of a reddened sun split by the thin silhouettes of bobbing yacht masts, highly inspirational, tempering his writing with furious abandonment. In the meantime Martin is hard at work on his practice kit back in the Czech Republic, providing the midi backbone to Paul's initial structures, which are then later embellished by guitars and keyboards. Luckily Dave lives in spitting distance of Paul's new gaff, so he's in partnership with the basic skeleton of every track, which is then flown past Ashley (who has just moved this week from Phoenix to LA...), who then goes all symphonic on it's rugged ass. Things therefore are moving well towards our new, as-yet-untitled album, with a possible studio start date of early January to be ringed in all gothic diaries. Bring it on!

Now I think everybody got to hear about the stupid happenings at this year's Bloodstock with the kilo weight candy balls and the cancelled set, so much so this will be the last thing I'll say about it. Period. It's just a crying shame that some idiot ruined for so many people, least of all and very selfishly, me, as it was the last of our Summer festival run, it was on home turf and friends and family were present. Plus the weather was damn near perfect and there was a really cool vibe amongst people as the sun slunk towards our headline set. Aside from the fact that Paul, in really bad pain, had to be whisked to hospital for a body scan, two children, one of whom was handicapped, were almost hit by these deadly projectiles. And who the hell sells these things at a fucking festival anyway? Stupid beyond belief.

The next gigs to undertake in the Gothic diary were in fact the last shows for the band this year and they were in Russia. And due to Charles being tied up for these two shows held in Moscow and St Petersburg, James was on hand for what turned out to be the most mellow and best played shows of the year. Mellow because everything ran smoothly to clockwork, partly thanks to having an English promoter and (Snoop Doggy Dogg redecorating the venues right before us) and also because the hotels were utterly exquisite, especially the one in Moscow which boasted a two door access bathroom, a 50 dollar breakfast (me, Dave and Steve eating the equivalent of three to get our money's worth and still walking out with three tonnes of pastries and bio-yoghurts in our pockets - at least that is what Dave said the stains were from!) and a bulbous night bar on the roof that overlooked pretty much all of Moscow (it was spherical and a tad vertiginous) and required Mafia credentials to get in, though I managed somehow to do it in carpet slippers...

Other quick news (the obvious being that September is now halfway through October!) is that Dave has a new ESP custom bass design waiting in the wings (artwork courtesy of Sam Shearon), which, if it looks even half as good as the template on his laptop screen, will be an amazing piece of kit, airbrushed with some of the best Cthulhu-esque artwork this side of sunken R'lyeh. Also, the much-anticipated "Gospel Of Filth', 5 years in the making, is at last ready to buy via the web site, with an imposed cut off date of midnight on Hallowe'en before which to get your claws on this hugely researched modern day grimoire. But be warned! Not only is the curfew being strictly enforced, but the limited stock is already half accounted for, so time is really of the essence. Once the collector's edition is gone, it's gone for good in the swirling fogs of time.

The next blog should throw up some big surprises and I really wish at the time of going to press I was able to impart them fully to you, but unfortunately my little sweethearts, I have to curb my forked tongue for the time-being. Nevertheless the next e-mail should be quite contentious, if not full of the pith and pun that you bloodsucking freaks hanker to expect.

All the very brest,
Your good fiend,
Count Filth.

All the very breast?

Dani's writing us just like his lyrics: corny.

Should be an interesting new album though. Godspeed was a step in the right direction.

Does he really call himself 'Count Filth'?
Also, the whole candy incident is still hilarious to me. 'Full body scan' for a piece of candy? This must have been some kind of Uranium Jawbreaker they were selling. He should be happy it wasn't a beer bottle someone snuck in.

Actually, beer bottles, cans, whatever were allowed in. These gobstoppers, like has been reported many times, weighed a LOT - therefore they were obviously the weapon of choice.

Alright, I'm not too familer with the rules of this festival. If the guy had been seriously injured it wouldn't have been funny of course, but it amazes me how fast COF left the stage.

He apparently collapsed. These aren't spry, young chicks on stage - precautions needed to be taken. If they had returned to the stage, probably more would have been thrown.

True, I thought about that. But at the same time I couldn't imagine someone getting away with throwing something at a band twice. To have hit him he must have been near the fence, where all the hardcore fans of a band are. I find it hard to believe that no one saw this person throw it and let him/her get away with it.
Baz Anderson - 17.10.2009 at 23:02  
Well, they couldn't take that risk.
Black Conundrum - 17.10.2009 at 23:06  
I wonder how Paul Allender is doing now.
Opethian - 18.10.2009 at 06:23  
Hope its not another flop like Thronagraphy

Watch out Dani, I've been to the sweet shop, i've bought some evil looking M&Ms, demonic Fruit Salad chews and a fucking big Toblerone, my god the cormers on that will have someone's eye out.

Only joking. I know that what they were throwing were big bastards, hope he is OK now.
Slayer666 - 18.10.2009 at 20:32  
Very nice.... I just hope it won't be false advertising CoF is known for. If they continue with the path made by Godspeed, I'm going to be very, very happy.

Yeah, that does sounds reeeeeally good!

Well, I think at the end of his update post, he had some mistakes..
All the very brest,
Your good fiend,
Count Filth.


I think he meant:
All the very best,
Your good friend,
Filthy Cunt.


Only kidding... Good luck for them; however I never actually liked any of their albums.

Great read, I love how Dani writes his blogs. Haha, I think he definitely made a typo at the end there with 'breast.'
