2014-08-29 - Witch County England's finest, DEVILMENT featuring the master of horrors, Dani Filth (CRADLE OF FILTH, TEMPLE OF THE BLACK MOON), have published the second epsiode of the official album interview series for the band's upcoming debut album, »The Great And Secret Show«, which is scheduled to be released on Halloween 2014 (October 31).
Check out Dani, Daniel and Lauren talking about the album's title, its artwork and lyrical concept:
Furthermore the tracklist for »The Great And Secret Show« has been announced today. See below.
The band, consisting of Dani Filth (vocals), Daniel Finch (guitar & samples) Colin Parks (rhythm guitar/lead guitar), Nick Johnson (bass guitar), Aaron Boast (drums), Lauren Francis (keyboards & vocals) recently signed a deal with Nuclear Blast Entertainment.
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...”
»The Great And Secret Show« 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 (see below/attached) was created by legendary Drake Mefestta.
Adds Filth: "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."
