Guitarist and another bloke you've never heard of out of Hadleigh sickos...

Cradle Of Filth have lost two members as guitarist and songwriter Stuart Antsis has been sacked and keyboartds player Les 'Lecter' Smith has quit.

Speaking in the current issue of metal mag Kerrang! Antsis alleged that the band's singer Dani and their management had been conspiring to have him sacked for months.

"All Dani does is vandalise my songs," he said. "It's like taking your kids to have their heads kicked in."

Hew also said that he was upset over dance mixes of COF tracks because he hates techno.

But singer Dani Filth responded by saying: "I don't know why they can't just leave gracefully...It was personal and I didn't think anyone would have the gall to retaliate.."

COF's new EP 'From The Cradle To Enslave' is out on November 1.
