Dani Filth is top ‘Suffolk icon’
PUBLISHED: 12:07 16 September 2010
DEATH metal star Dani Filth is running away with the race to be named Suffolk’s top icon, it emerged today.
The self-styled “crypt-crawling” frontman of Cradle of Filth is streets ahead of any other contenders in the Choose Suffolk-led contest.
As of this morning, the 37-year-old, who used to be based in Hadleigh, had 1,622 views - almost 600 ahead of second placed Broomhill Swimming Pool in Ipswich.
A pint of Adnams, a Suffolk Punch and the Middy Train complete the top 5.
The site was set-up by Choose Suffolk, a partnership aimed at putting the county “on the map”, and tourism manager Alex Paul said that the submission of Dani as an “icon” showed that there was more to Suffolk than just the traditional beauty spots.
Cradle of Filth have consistently been one of the biggest-selling and most successful British heavy metal bands since releasing breakthrough album Dusk... and Her Embrace in 1996.
