Now, six years after “Circle Of Snakes”, all DANZIG Fans have reason to celebrate: the new full-length “Deth Red Sabaoth”.
DANZIGs history is a history of success. The self-entitled debut was released in 1988. Only two years later followed “Lucifuge”. Both albums combined different styles from punk, gothic new wave, satanic metal to dark hard rock. Those records spread an icy chill, like noting before.
After the third full-length “How The Gods Kill” Danzig released an EP entitled “Thrall: Demonsweatlive” featuring live-tracks of the 1992 halloween-show as well as three brand new songs. This EP was a bombshell, as the live version of “Mother” rotated constantly in the hard rock radio stations. So DANZIG created a new video clip for “Mother”, which was broadcasted on MTV and vaulted the band up to the mainstream. In 1994 DANZIGs fourth album was released, simply called “4”. It came out to be much more atmospheric and experimental but was a masterpiece anyway: cool but hand-made, rough and inscrutable. After troubles with his record label and growing distance to his band mates, Danzig grabbed the chance, gathered new musicians around him and surprised his fans with a great fifth record called “Blackacidevil”, which featured many new ideas and perspective pointing out the darkwave/industrial rhythms.
The follow-up “Satan’s Child” was characterized by dark and heavy hard rock, interlaced by soft electronic samples. “It’s totally different than all the DANZIG records before. I hate it to do the same things over and over again. But I think the common thread running through all records is that punk attitude.” In 2002 came “I Luciferi” which recalled the sound of the classical DANZIG era. Two years later “Circle Of Snakes” was released, which was celebrated as Glenn Danzigs best work so far.
Now, six years later, DANZIG is back with his new stunning opus “Deth Red Sabaoth”. The album was produced by the master himself, who recorded the bass guitar for most of the songs on his own and also played the drums for “Black Candy”. This new album represents all his strengths. It is soaked by his charismatic compositions and his vocal style. It even makes references to the first four records (just listen to the “Mother”-influenced “Deth Red Moon”). “Deth Red Sabaoth” is an album, which will be loved by every single DANZIG Fan – it is the return of a legend!
