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 III: How the Gods Kill is the third album by Glenn Danzig's band Danzig, and the highest to chart at the time of its release in 1992 on Def American Recordings. It was reissued in 1998 by Def American's successor, American Recordings.How the Gods Kill was a departure from the previous Danzig album and featured more of a doom and gothic metal sound.Eerie Von considers the album to be Danzig's best, with the band at its peak and able to record most of the basic tracks for each song within a couple of takes.John Christ noted how a lot of time was spent perfecting the guitar sounds for the album. For the quieter moments on the songs "Anything", "Sistinas" and "How the Gods Kill", Christ used a Strat guitar previously played by Jeff Beck.The title song "How the Gods Kill" concerns a search for knowledge and an understanding of oneself.According to John Christ, “That was a real tricky song to write and record. It has so many level jumps and changes in the sound of the guitar. I had to go from a very soft section to a very loud section to an in-between section. If you listen closely, you can hear a hissing noise in the vocals in the intro because we were using a real noisy vocal preamp. We tried everything to get rid of it, but Glenn's performance was so good that we decided to leave it - the mood was just right.”The song "Sistinas" was written during a drum track recording session, as John Christ recalled: “We were in the studio recording drum tracks, and while we were on a break Glenn picked up my guitar and started getting an idea for a song. Then I came up with a little chorus part, and in about an hour or two we had the basic structure of the song. He wanted it to have a Roy Orbison type of vibe with some timpani and keyboards. We used an old Fender amp with a vibrato on it, and we cranked up the vibrato to get those really big chords - it was perfect for that song.”Opening track "Godless" is about feelings of frustration caused by organised religion."Heart of the Devil" was the first song on the album to be performed live by the band, during the European Lucifuge tour in 1991.Later in the same year, it was confirmed that the tracks "Bodies" and "Do You Wear the Mark" had been written for the album.Blues legend Willie Dixon had agreed to guest on the track "Heart of the Devil", but died before the recording session was scheduled.The avant-garde metal band Lux Occulta recorded a cover version of "Heart of the Devil" for their 1998 EP Maior Arcana: The Words That Turn Flesh into Light.The tracks "How the Gods Kill" and "Dirty Black Summer" became popular and remain a permanent fixture in the band's set list.The album's cover is a 1976 painting called Meister und Margeritha (The Master and Margarita) by famous Swiss artist H. R. Giger. For the album cover, Giger modified the original painting slightly, covering "the Master's" erect penis with a dagger bearing his interpretation of the Danzig skull symbol. Giger's version of the Danzig skull was later used as the cover art for the "Dirty Black Summer" single.Like Danzig's other three albums with the original lineup, this album was issued a Parental Advisory sticker, later complete with a "strong language" warning, despite the total absence of profanity.
