Biography

Lodi, New York NJ, United States (1987 – present)

Danzig is a band from the United States, formed in 1987, in Lodi, New Jersey. The band serves as a musical outlet for singer/composer Glenn Danzig, and their music fuses dark lyrics and imagery with influenced music. Danzig can be seen as the third stage in Glenn Danzig’s musical career, preceded by the band The Misfits and the band Samhain.

On July 14, 1986, Samhain performed what was to be their final show, at The Ritz in New York City. In attendance was Rick Rubin, who was scouting for potential bands to sign to his record label, Def Jam. Upon viewing Samhain’s performance, Rubin was impressed with Glenn Danzig’s powerful stage persona and vocal abilities. He approached him after the show and propositioned him. At first, he wished only to sign Danzig, with the intent of making him the vocalist for a heavy metal supergroup that Rubin envisioned. However, Danzig refused to sign to Rubin’s label without Samhain’s bassist, Eerie Von, whom Glenn had become great friends with. Rubin agreed to sign Samhain, and he began making suggestions for the new direction he felt the band should take. Rubin felt the music should be stripped down, and that Glenn’s vocal talents should become the focal point for the band.

    if someone has vinyl copy of their second album "lucifuge" please upload front cover in high quality because I can't find decent quality image anywhere on the internet and I like it much better than CD version

    6:66 Satan's Child is very much a good album. I really like that one a lot. There's one or two tracks on it that aren't top quality perhaps, but the album as a whole is a great one. I also remember that "Crawl Across Your Killing Floor" was originally recorded during those sessions. Think if that would've been on the album as well, it would've been even greater!

    4 is their peak for me. The dark brooding atmosphere on that record is untouchable.
