Daniel Firth is the bassist for the notorious British extreme metal institution, Cradle of Filth. Having joined in 2012 for the recording of their tenth studio album, 'The Manticore and Other Horrors', he soon became a permanent fixture in the band, accompanying them on all of their subsequent tours across the globe. Now in 2015, Cradle of Filth are set to release and tour their brand new full-length recording, 'Hammer of the Witches'.

Marek 'Ashok' Smerda has been the guitarist for Cradle of Filth since early 2014 when he received the invitation to do the European Tour. Thenceforward he stayed in, having toured all around the world with the band while simultaneously having put his hand and heart to the plough to cooperate with other Cradle of Filth members on their spectacular new album, Hammer of the Witches.
For the last 20 years, Ashok gained a lot of experience both in studio sessions and live performances with various bands and other musical projects which allowed him to absorb a lot of useful skills to be shared with you.
