Album Review

Danzig's first album of new material in six years stays true to its creator’s punk roots by returning to the sludgy, borrowed amplifier cacophony of Samhain and Legacy of Brutality-era Misfits. Deth Red Sabaoth sounds like what a lot of the Samhain/Misfits fans wanted the group’s 1988 debut to be: a raw, dirty, D.I.Y. collection of comic book-inspired violence, thrust together by the unholy union of punk and metal. Opener “Hammer of the Gods” will give those fans reason to rejoice, as it serves up a perfect storm of both genres, perfectly encapsulating everything people love (and despise) about the group. One has to give credit to Glenn Danzig (who played bass on most of the record, and sat behind the drum kit on album highlight “Black Candy”) for trying to keep it real. Nine studio albums in to his third full-time band, he’s not doing it for anyone other than himself.
