among his major influences. At the age of eighteen, Filth took up a job at a Chinese restaurant. He later chose his career in music over an internship at a newspaper, although his "Dani's Inferno" column ran for two years in Metal Hammer during the late 1990s.

He has co-written and released The Gospel of Filth with Gavin Baddeley . The book, which Filth describes as an "occult study," features contributions from Clive Barker

and Ingrid Pierson. He had been accused many times of being a Satanist , but has denounced such rumours, claiming instead to being "more of a Luciferian ."

Away from Cradle, Filth appeared on the Roadrunner United CD in 2005 (contributing vocals to "Dawn of a Golden Age"), and his high profile has also led to a handful of film and television roles. In 2003, he provided the voice of the eponymous main character in the feature-length animation Dominator .

He was ranked 95 in the Hit Parader 's Top 100 Metal Vocalist of All Time.

Filth recorded the song "(She's) The Mother of Tears" with Claudio Simonetti and Simonetti's band Daemonia, for the soundtrack of Dario Argento 's film The Mother of Tears .

Chris Motionless, of the band Motionless in White

, revealed in an issue of Kerrang! magazine that Filth would appear on their 2014 album Reincarnate. He provided guest vocals for the song "Puppets III."


In 2000, Filth appeared in the movie Cradle of Fear

as The Man, a deranged psychopath taking revenge on his father's persecutors. The film also starred David McEwen, Edmund Dehn, Emily Booth , Eileen Daly , Rebecca Eden and Emma Rice. A homage to the cult Amicus anthology Asylum , Cradle of Fear
Cradle of Fear
unfolds four stories all linked by the thread of an incarcerated child killer wreaking vengeance on those responsible for his imprisonment. The movie's tagline on some posters was, "It's not if they die... It's how..."
