CRADLE OF FILTH @ Vagos Metal Fest, 2018/08/10

Originally shot for Glam Magazine.


When the power went down in the middle of “Heartbreak And Seance” (or “Bathory Area” – can’t remember for sure. I do know it hadn’t been long since I’d left the photopit, so it must have been around the 4th or the 5th song), we all thought Dani Filth would throw a tantrum and that was it for CRADLE OF FILTH‘s first show in Vagos. It was quite a pleasant shock when he smiled and said they had done that, that he didn’t like that song and so decided to cut it short. :D

It had been 10 years since I’d last seen them live, meaning this line-up – already 4 years old at the time – was totally new to me. I’ve missed Paul Allender‘s evil faces, but must admit Rich Shaw‘s deranged expressions were super fun to shoot. :D The only thing I disliked was Lindsay Schoolcraft‘s voice. Great keyboard player, not so much of a singer… not for CoF, at least.

Lost count of how many times Filth dedicated songs to their “friends in MOONSPELL. Yep, he was definitely in a great mood. :D

As for me, I had way more fun than I thought I would. My copy of “The Principle Of Evil Made Flesh” had quite a rotation back in the day – “back in the day” being the key-phrase here… But it felt great hearing “the forest whispering my name” again. ;)
