Originally formed by Daniel Finch back in late 2011 amidst a bout of religious delirium, Devilment back then experienced a myriad of problems trying to hold down a stable vocalist (the rope, I believe, was never quite strong enough).Enter Daniel’s friend Dani Filth (Cradle Of Filth, Temple Of The Black Moon), who, although not entirely stable mentally, agreed to help out on a couple of tracks, having some time off from his other projects.Dani Filth comments, “When I heard what Dan Finch was doing, I just had to get my claws into it. It had a unique sound to it that was both creepy and heavy, but indelibly groovy.”

September 2013 saw the band enter Grindstone Studios in Suffolk with Producer Scott Atkins (Cradle of Filth, Behemoth, Amon Amarth). The band have completed 13 tracks, which, amongst their lot, features a cover of Midnight Oil's classic "Beds Are Burning", with guest vocals coming courtesy of Dani's long-term friend Bam Margera (of MTV's Jackass and Viva La Bam fame). Lyrically the album is centred around the poetically macabre; part Roald Dahl, part HP Lovecraft, part Tim Burton, all Dani Filth, with songs about exonerating the Hindu Goddess of Death and Rebirth; Celebrating the band's Witch County origins; Murderously unstable relationships; Exotic cinematic women; Mind-altering Victorian drugs and the phantasmagorical beauty that exists behind the thinly veiled curtain of existence.

The final album, entitled "The Great And Secret Show", is a monolith of pure unadulterated metal madness and is unlike anything that you would expect to come from the craw of Dani Filth.Classic heavy and groove-laden riffs combined with a soundtrack ripped from a Hitchcock flick, are infused with insane melodies and a roaming evil-eye for the avant garde. Plus the artwork, undertaken by Drake Mefestta, is an incredible walk-through of megalithic proportions and destined to drop jaws to the floor.
