The Cruciatus Curse
The Cruciatus Curse
I was happy with what was flowing, so I raced home and recorded a sample on my computer. We had been recording at Getaway Studios for a while, but we really had not finished any songs yet. That song really became the domino effect to finish all of the songs.” “Slytherock” is his first studio release in quite a while. The last chunk of his time has been spent recording a new album and prepping for the release of his record label's newest artist, Dark Alley Murder and their cd "Hear No Evil".
Denni explains that the band is a muggle version of The Cruciatus Curse and still covers alot of parodies and original music. “ I didn’t want anyone to think that it was the end of The Cruiatus Curse, but the begining of a new version of The Cruciatus Curse for the Muggle world. Putting the cd set together really made me appreciate what I am doing in wizard rock now even more. It was time to get the creative juices flowing when I found a window of time available, I just figured if not now, when?,” adding, “Dark Alley Murder is a little bit more edgy lyricaly than The Cruciatus Curse and alot more aldult, but it was a release of energy that I needed. We were always a band that was slightly out of time and out of step, so I think my music with The Cruciatus Curse has grown pretty well.
I think we did a lot of good stuff in the beginning, very groundbreaking, but you know it just became this repeditive sound that just didn't catch people attention. Not a day goes by that I don't think back to the first song that I released as The Cruciatus Curse, and the feedback that we received was unbelievable. I love wizard rock and I will do it until I am physically forced from the stage!” Denni continues talking a bit about the energy surrounding their current projects and how he thinks he has found the perfect duo of musicians to work with. “In revisiting the older Crucaitus Curse stuff, [it] brought back a lot of things that I had forgotten about, unfortunately some of it negative. So it really make you appreciate what a great group of musicians and guys you are playing with now while I record my new record.
It took 6 or so years but I feel like I have found the perfect two people to work with; Joe Ritchie and Christopher Forsythe." The good news is that a new album is coming in summer of 2010 and that they’re close to finishing recording. “We will probably be finished with the new CD by the end of April. The unique thing about this record is that this is the first time since Joe joined the band that I actually recorded other people. In the sense that these are the guys I tour with and that I hang out with were a band and we recorded as a band. It’s got a much more solid vibe, more intricate and interesting record just due to the fact that there are always four people in the room at all times, contributing and working.
For me it’s great, because my solo records have always been a bit disjointed due to the changing roster of musicians. Great things come out of situations where you feel a great vibe, and that is what’s going on here. This is the first full thing with us together…” There is good news for fans awaiting Denni’s debut film, "AVALANTIS"… it’s finally written, now just to film it! "AVALANTIS" is written and we are just waiting to film! Finally, we just finished writing last week finally and all that stuff. So no, we are just figuring out when the best time to film it will be.
But as far as writing it… it’s done! After three and half years, it’s a nice feeling.” Unfortunately, Denni is still keeping tight-lipped on his newest project for DragonFilm, entitled "Pandora's Curse". “I can’t really tell you anything about it. There’s nothing really to talk about yet, because I haven’t really started it yet. The problem is that it was announced way ahead of time, so we talked about it a little bit, but its not even started yet.” Well you heard it from the man himself. But if the past dictates the future Denni Towle & The Cruciatus Curse have always been full of surprises.
