Metal In The Mainstream

CRADLE OF FILTH Frontman Would Like His Band's T-Shirts Sold At Walmart

Dude's gotta pay his bills, right?

Cradle of Filth's t-shirt résumé includes the famously-crude "Jesus is a Cunt" design, which is still making waves all these years later. Not exactly Walmart material, but Cradle of Filth vocalist Dani Filth would still like to see some of his band's shirts there.

Filth tells Metal Hammer that he sees rock shirts in stores all the time now. Plus, and it's an obvious one, the money from Walmart sales would be pretty damn good.

"I went into Asda the other day and they’ve got Kiss, Pink Floyd and AC/DC shirts in there now. It’s like Walmart in the States, that shop is made for tour because they’re huge and they have everything, even Misfits and limited-edition Star Wars stuff. I’d be very happy if they started selling Cradle shirts. I’m not finicky and it has to be said that the money would be good…"

Elsewhere, Filth also discusses his favorite recent black metal artists. Filth said black metal isn't as complicated as it once was, but there are also less constraints on the genre as a whole now.

"It’s OK. It’s not as complicated as it once was. I think everybody’s branched out and experimented. When the scene first started in 1991-1992, everyone was doing very different things anyway; bands like Necromantia and Moonspell, you didn’t have guitarists, you had three bass players. There were a lot of different styles going on back then and I think now people are doing very much the same thing, but there’s less constraints now.

"There’s a few bands revising the old style like Immortal, but on the other hand, there’s great bands like Alcest doing black shoegaze who I absolutely love.

"The new Deathspell Omega album is incredible, there’s new bands like Craft who did one of my favorite albums last year, White Noise and Black Metal. The manacles were put on the scene for a long time and the fans demanded it had to be kvlt, which is something we’ve always rebelled against and I’m glad people share that view now."
