Long-time FEARnet fave Dani Filth (aka Daniel Davey), best known as the founder and vocalist for iconic metal band Cradle of Filth, has now stepped in as official vocalist for another horror-themed metal band in the UK. The group Devilment, formed in 2011 by guitarist Daniel Finch, was having difficulty locking down a permanent lineup. The band finalized their instrumental core in late 2012, recruiting Dan Jackson on lead guitar, bassist Nick Johnson, and Aaron Boast behind the drumkit; they were still seeking a vocalist when Dani offered his services.
What began as a few tracks with Dani's vocals on the band's studio demo Grotescapology turned into eight demo tracks in all, including titles like “Psycho Babble,” “Bloodlust, Rust and Empire,” “Even Your Blood Group Rejects Me,” “I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream" (based on a horrifying story by Harlan Ellison), “Mother Kali” and “Staring at the Werewolf Corps.”
While recording is still in progress, the band has posted some ominous previews, as well as this full track “Girl from Mystery Island,” which is pretty damn wicked. Take a listen!
We're looking forward to more from Devilment, and we'll keep you updated... drop by their new website for more.
