Bio:

Danzig is an American band, formed in 1987 in Lodi, New Jersey, United States. The band is the musical outlet for singer and songwriter Glenn Danzig, preceded by the horror punk bands the Misfits and Samhain. They play in a bluesy doom-driven heavy metal style influenced by the early sound of Black Sabbath.On July 14, 1986, Samhain performed at The Ritz in New York in what was to be their final show. In attendance was Rick Rubin, who was scouting for potential bands to sign to his record label, Def American. Rubin at first wished only to sign Danzig, with the intent of making him the vocalist for a hard rock supergroup that Rubin envisioned. However, Danzig refused to sign to Rubin's label without Samhain's bassist Eerie Von. In 1987, he added John Christ on guitar and Chuck Biscuits (ex-Black Flag) on drums.To reflect the change in musical direction and avoid having to start anew after future lineup changes, Glenn, on Rubin's advice, changed the name of Samhain to his surname, Danzig.Glenn Danzig was the original vocalist and songwriter for the legendary horror punk band the Misfits. He formed Samhain after leaving the Misfits in the early 80s before forming Danzig in 1987 and forging ahead into the metallic realm. To reflect the change in musical direction and avoid lineup changes, Rick Rubin had asked Glenn to change Samhain's name to Danzig, so technically this band is still Samhain.The first (and some say the classic) Danzig line-up consisted of Glenn Danzig, John Christ (guitar), Eerie Von (bass) and Chuck Biscuits (drums). The aforementioned lineup lasted for 4 albums. Ironically, despite the illusion of being a real band, Danzig has always been more of a solo project for Glenn, who has remained constant for over a decade.Contrary to popular opinion, Danzig's Circle of Snakes is not "Danzig 8", as people tend to believe it is part of the numbered Danzig albums. Glenn claims that the album isn't a part of the numbered Danzig albums because of the different approach used on the album with it being more personal. Beside that, he claims the anthology reaches 7:77 only, which was I Luciferi.Glenn Danzig is a huge fan of comic book art and cartooning. He's made an appearance on the Adult Swim cartoon on Cartoon Network called Aqua Teen Hunger Force.

Album:

Danzig is the debut album of the American heavy metal band Danzig, released in August, 1988. The album was the first release on producer Rick Rubin's new label Def American Recordings.Def American's successor, American Recordings reissued the album in the United States and United Kingdom in 1998. It remains the band's best-selling album having been certified Gold in the U.S. in 1994, and has since been certified Platinum.Danzig was recorded at Atlantic Recording Studios and Chung King Metal, and mixed at Smoke Tree and Village.The song "Mother", retitled as "Mother '93" and with live audience overdubs, became a hit on radio and MTV in 1993-94 after a new video-single with live footage was created to mark its inclusion on Thrall: Demonsweatlive.The song was also later included on various hard rock and heavy metal music compilations, and featured in the video games Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, True Crime: New York City, the Guitar Hero series, and F.E.A.R. 3. It also appeared on the soundtrack to the 2013 film The Hangover Part III.Glenn Danzig originally wrote the songs "Twist of Cain" and "Possession" for his previous band, Samhain.Lyrically, "Twist of Cain" is inspired by the biblical story of Cain and Abel. Guitarist John Christ described the recording of "Twist of Cain": “We started writing that song even before Biscuits joined the band. At first we started recording it in G, then at the last minute we decided that A was better. We kept the drum tracks as they were and re-recorded the guitars, bass and vocals. Not many people know this, but James Hetfield (of Metallica) came down and recorded some backing vocals on that track.”Hetfield also recorded backing vocals on "Possession", however, due to contractual reasons he could not be credited in the album insert.A backwards piano track is used during the intro to "Possession".John Christ has described "She Rides" as “Our first sex song...it's such a stripped-down song, just a couple of guitar tracks and almost no bass. "She Rides" probably has the best vocal performance on the album, though. There are also some really weird background noises and moaning sounds on it.”While the album's liner notes expressly state "All songs written by Glenn Danzig", the song "The Hunter" was written by Booker T. & the M.G.'s and Carl Wells. Originally recorded by Albert King, the Danzig version of the song only features slightly modified lyrics.Folk musician Bonnie 'Prince' Billy recorded a cover version of "Am I Demon" for his 2007 EP Ask Forgiveness.
