As you may have or may not of known, that CRADLE OF FILTH is on tour and soon they will be heading to Los Angeles on the 8th of February at Club Nokia. I have made it my mission to attend this event for a couple of reasons but one of them being that Finnish Musician Daniel Lioneye will open for the Main acted.
For those that don't know who DANIEL LIONEYE is well let me tell you. He is AKA LINDE from HIM (a Finnish, Love Metal band) HIM is a very successful band. They have a large fan base in Europe and Scandinavia but for some reason a huge fan base in the US. Which I think is a shame. They are really good. But I think is due illegal downloads of their music which may be why they are not as successful here in the States. Any way DANIEL LIONEYE aka LINDE is a side project that started back in 2000-2001 when HIM had some down time.
The First Album to come from that project was "King of Rock N Roll" With LINDE aka (DANIEL LIONEYE) as the vocals and guitar, Mikko Heinrik Julius ‘Migé Amour' Paananen on bass, Ville Hermanni ‘Rakohammas' Valo on drums, Kai ‘Hiili' Hiilesmaa on keyboards.
After a nine years of inactivity LINDE aka DANIEL LIONEYE returned to the Studio this time with H.I.M. keyboardist Janne "Burton" Puurtinen and Enochian Crescent drummer Black Vomit Bolton for what came to be an industrialized black metal experiment album.
