Filth Celebrate Hallowe'en With Spooky Novel

Rockers CRADLE OF FILTH will celebrate Hallowe'en this year (31OCT05) by releasing a book which tells a fictional tale about the band's supernatural adventures.

The currently untitled novel, written by music journalist GAVIN BADDELEY, includes popular myths about the group and each chapter is loosely based around one of the metal outfit's nine albums.

Frontman DANI FILTH says, "It's going to be a coffee table book, the sort of thing you can just flick through.

"Gavin's really well-versed in the occult and black metal and everything. I've read the first part and it's excellent.

"The opening's about the rise of the evil British Empire. It references why Hollywood always places a quintessential English gentleman in the role of the bad guy - people like ALAN RICKMAN."
