DEVILMENT Dani Filth takes on the ultimate horror movie quiz for Halloween


Witch County nefarious frights DEVILMENT – led by vehement frontman Dani Filth, will release their forthcoming masterpiece ‘Devilment II: The Mephisto Waltzes’ on 18th November via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. Today, the band have released a new trailer in celebration of Halloween, in which Dani puts his knowledge of Horror movies to the test.

The video was directed by Sam Scott Hunter with a skeleton crew of academic students, with thanks to Film Suffolk. It features actress Leanne Joyce as the Hitchcock Blonde, who has appeared on Britain's Next Top Model, Call The Midwife and The Royals to name a few.

Dani comments: 
"This is all about the legendary film director Alfred Hitchcock's infatuation with his on-screen heroines; cool, controlled, aloof and sophisticated blondes. The song even name-checks ten of his favourite actresses.
As ever there is a psychotic bend to the lyrics and the accompanying video, which was shot in a derelict, haunted hotel in the middle of Ipswich (the band’s home town) where Lord Nelson was said to have stayed on numerable occasions. The various hideous frights throughout the video were past denizens of the hotel captured on camera." 

The Witch County wicked wanderers are set to embark on a tour of the UK in December. They will be joined by special guests SHE MUST BURN, who were last seen opening up for Cradle of Filth last October. A slew of local acts will begin the evening each night (one per venue) and a list of these will be presented shortly. Full dates can be seen below and tickets are available here: https://myticket.co.uk/artists/devilment

Dani’s crew have meticulously pieced together a second blood-spattered batch of deranged anthems that brings vastly more colour, intensity and lyrical versatility to this band’s spectral palate. The second DEVILMENTrecord makes no splintered bones about its nefarious intent, offering a bewildering torrent of disparate and demented ideas and delivering them with refined, ultra-gothic panache and several jolting doses of Dani’s trademark verbal subterfuge. Assisted by long-time collaborators Lauren Francis (keys and vocals), Colin Parks (guitar), Nick Johnson (bass) and new drummer Matt Alston, Dani has arrived at the telling moment where DEVILMENT become a genuine force to be reckoned with.
