    In one of the weirder rumours to hit the metal industry in some time, it seems that an extreme metal collaboration between Cradle Of Filth and Ed Sheeran will soon be coming our way. 

    The stupendously successful singer-songwriter is a noted fan of the heavier end of the musical spectrum, having recently let slip a love for both Slipknot and Cradle Of Filth and has half-jokingly expressed an interest in making a metal record. His metal credentials seem to go further too,  having covered Behemoth's  Demigod at least once in a live setting, and made an appearance on Jimmy Fallon where he played an acoustic-pop version of Limp Bizkit's Break Stuff.   Now it seems Ed is ready to step things of a considerable notch with Cradle Of Filth's Dani Filth confirming that he and Ed have been in contact about a collaboration. 

    Speaking to Kerrang Radio  Dani revealed that the time appears to be nigh for the two worlds to collide. 

    I’ve been invited up to his place. Well, he said he could come down to mine, but I pointed out to him that I don’t own my own bar or village, and it’d be better if I went there,” said Dani. “He said he’d do anything, quite literally. He said he’s a massive fan. He seems like a genuinely very nice guy actually.

    As for how Dani expects Cradle Of Filth fans to react to any potential release between the two distinctly different Suffolk sons, he in typical Dani Filth style couldn't give a fuck, as long as it does some good for the world. 

    I think the Ed Sheeran collaboration would be great fun. I think it’d be great if we did it for charity because at least it would bring a bit of credibility to it. Because obviously to his public, it’d be like ‘Oh my god, he’s got this weird comical guy’, and to my public, it’d be like ‘Oh my god, this is a bit weird, isn’t it?’ But I think that sort of thing, nowadays, works.

     Whether any of this results in a release or not, we are already thankful because it led already conjured this piece of comedic brilliance from Dani's mind. 

    Dracula's Castle On The Hill Dani, very nice, we see what you did there and we love it. 
    If all this talk of Ed Sheeran has you in need of some respite, why not find it in this classic video from Cradle Of Filth. 

     

    Then continue your Cradle of Filth binge by listening to their essential tracks now.
