Personal life[edit] Daniel Lloyd Davey was born to Susan Janet Moore and Lawrence John Davey in Hertford
and is the oldest child of four. He has two sisters, Amanda (b. 1975) and Rachel (b. 1978), and a brother, Philip (b. 1981).[1] He married his wife Toni on 31 October 2005, in Ipswich.[2] The two have a daughter, Luna Scarlett. Career[edit] Dani Filth's present and primary band is Cradle of Filth. He also has been lending his voice to the band Devilment, a side project that has taken off into a full-time job in between Cradle records. His earliest bands were Carnival Fruitcake, The Lemon Grove Kids, PDA and Feast on Excrement.[1] He named Judas Priest, Venom, Emperor, Destruction, Slayer, Iron Maiden, Sabbat, Misfits, Paradise Lost and Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas
The Nightmare Before Christmas
among his major influences.[1] 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,[1] 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
The Gospel of Filth
with Gavin Baddeley.[3] The book, which Filth describes as an "occult study," features contributions from Clive Barker, Christopher Lee
Christopher Lee
and Ingrid Pierson.[4] He had been accused many times of being a Satanist, but has denounced such rumours, claiming instead to being "more of a Luciferian."[5] 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.[6] 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.[7] 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".[citation needed] Cradle of Fear[edit] In 2000, Filth appeared in the movie Cradle of Fear
Cradle of Fear
as The Man, a deranged psychopath taking revenge on his father's persecutors. 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..."[8] Discography[edit] Cradle of Filth[edit]
