|Devilment The Great And Secret Show Limited Edition Gatefold Vinyl 2LP Set
· Originally formed by Daniel Finch back in late 2011 amidst a bout of religious delirium, Devilment initially experienced myriad problems trying to hold down a stable vocalist. Enter Daniel’s friend Dani Filth (Cradle Of Filth,
Temple Of The Black Moon) who, although not entirely stable mentally, agreed to help out on a couple of tracks, having some time off from his other projects. Dani Filth comments, “When I heard what Dan Finch was doing, I just had to get my claws into it. It had a unique sound to it that was both creepy and heavy, but indelibly groovy.”
· September 2013 saw the band enter Grindstone Studios in Suffolk with producer Scott Atkins (Cradle Of Filth, Behemoth, Amon Amarth). The band have completed 13 tracks including a bonus cover of Midnight Oil’s classic ‘Beds Are Burning’ with guest vocals courtesy of Dani’s longterm friend Bam Margera (of MTV’s ‘Jackass’ and ‘Viva La Bam’ fame).
· Lyrically the album is centred around the poetically macabre; part Roald Dahl, part HP Lovecraft, part Tim Burton, all Dani Filth, with songs about exonerating the Hindu Goddess of Death and Rebirth; celebrating the band's
Witch County origins; murderously unstable relationships; exotic cinematic women; mind-altering Victorian drugs and the phantasmagorical beauty that exists behind the thinly veiled curtain of existence.
· The album, entitled ‘The Great And Secret Show’, is a monolith of pure unadulterated metal madness and is unlike anything that you would expect to come from the craw of Dani Filth. Classic heavy and groove-laden riffs combined with a soundtrack ripped from a Hitchcock flick are infused with
insane melodies and a roaming evil-eye for the avant garde. The artwork, undertaken by Drake Mefestta, is an incredible walkthrough of megalithic proportions and destined to drop jaws to the floor.
