Devilment: JACKASS-Star auf Debütalbum zu hören, dritte Episode der offiziellen Album-Interview-Serie online

Witch County England’s finest, DEVILMENT um den Meister des Horrors, Dani Filth (CRADLE OF FILTH, TEMPLE OF THE BLACK MOON), haben bekanntgegeben, dass Bam Margera (MTV JACKASS, Viva La Bam, FUCKFACE UNSTOPPABLE) auf dem kommenden Debütalbum, »The Great And Secret Show«, das an Halloween (31. Oktober) erscheint, zu hören sein wird.
Margera ist auf dem MIDNIGHT OIL-CoverBeds Are Burning‚ im Duett zu hören. Der Song ist als Bonus Track auf der limitierten Erstauflage des Album enthalten.
Bam kommentiert: „Having known Dani for a while now, and having him sing onstage with me at my wedding in Iceland last year, when he asked me to be a part of a song DEVILMENT were covering, I naturally jumped at the chance. The original track was awesome, this new interpretation of it is even better and I am just stoked to be a part of Dani’s new band’s stuff, which in all honesty f**king rocks like a muthaf**king f**k!“

Dani Filth fügt hinzu: „It was actually on my birthday last year when the idea came to me to cover this track, as for some strange reason I kept hearing it being played on the local radio station and subsequently, a few times when I breezed into petrol stations and food stores. I’ve always liked the song since hearing it in my teens, as I think it’s very anthemic, and CRADLE OF FILTH have always been known for undertaking wacky songs and bastardising them to our own twisted ends, so with my birthday epiphany bursting upon me, I put the idea of covering the tune to the rest of the band… to a positive response. As for my good friend Bam Margera, I thought it would be cool for him to demonstrate his vocal prowess by returning a favour, for he’d had me sing with him (strangely enough, ANATHEMA’s ‚Sleepless‘) at his wedding ceremony in Iceland last year and I thought it a top notch way to get him back in style! He didn’t require much persuasion… In all seriousness, it was a challenge and as a band we have given the track a slightly more psychotic edge, courtesy of pounding drums, hypnotic bass, industrial-esque guitars and a wicked keyboard melody lending it a John Carpenter/Tubular Bells ‚Exorcist‘ vibe. Plus of course there’s the vocals!“

DEVILMENT haben außerdem die dritte Episode der offiziellen Album-Interview-Serie veröffentlicht. Seht hier, wie Dani, Daniel und Lauren darüber sprechen, wie sich die Band gefunden hat:
