‘I Fear For The Future Of Music’

TV Rock Live recently conducted an interview with vocalist Dani “Filth” Davey of British extreme metallers CRADLE OF FILTH.

On the events of November 13 in Paris, France, when more than 129 people were killed in seven coordinated terrorist attacks, including at the Bataclan, a French music venue where EAGLES OF DEATH METAL were performing:

Dani: “The three previous tours — maybe four, actually — we’ve always played the Bataclan. So, yeah, it was with some shock, obviously. We had a strange incident there as well, because our roadie spotted this man who was loitering around and he just as being very suspicious. And he got so worked up about it that he actually went to our tour manager and said, ‘Someone’s acting really strange in the crowd. They’ve been there all day, walking around. Nobody knows who they are, and they’re in the crowd.’ So, yeah, he was a bit worried about that, and he mentioned that before. He doesn’t know whether they were casing the joint or whatever, but, yeah… What can you do? They could strike anytime anywhere, and people have just gotta be vigilant. You can’t live in fear.”

On whether the Paris concert massacre has changed his band’s view of touring:

Dani: “Well, there’s a lot of things that have happened. 9-11 didn’t change our views of touring. The death of the PANTERA guy didn’t change our view of touring. A little bit… Everybody knows they’re vulnerable when they’re on stage. There’s so many bands out, so many venues, so many places… It doesn’t necessarily have to be a band either. The day after the French incident, we played in Copenhagen [Denmark], and we had two members of the S.W.A.T. team hiding out by the entrance with fully automatic rifles — just hiding, just in case anything happened. I don’t think anybody was aware that they were there.”

CRADLE OF FILTH‘s eleventh studio album, “Hammer Of The Witches“, which was released on July 10 via Nuclear Blast. The CD marks the first release with CRADLE OF FILTH‘s new lineup, which includes new guitarists Ashok (of Czech groups ROOT and INNER FEAR) and Richard Shaw (of English acts EMPEROR CHUNG and NG26).

CRADLE OF FILTH will embark on the “Inquisitional Tourture” North American headlining tour in January. Support on the trek will come from BUTCHER BABIES and NE OBLIVISCARIS.
