Glenn Danzig — the man, the myth, the muscles, the Misfits mastermind and, of course, the master of many talents, ranging from composer to comic book publisher — is ending a six-year dearth of new music. ‘Deth Red Sabaoth‘ is 11 songs strong, and some song titles include “The Revengeful” and “On a Wicked Night.” There is also the two-parter called “Pyre of Souls”; part one is said to be dirgy and opens with an acoustic guitar, a piano and Danzig’s signature vocals, while part two erupts with electric guitar fury. Longtime Danzig cohorts guitarist Tommy Victor of Prong, who has worked with the singer since 1996, and drummer Johnny Kelly of Type O Negative/Seventh Void, played on the album, which marks the first time Kelly — who has intermittently sat behind the kit for Danzig live shows since 2002 — has actually recorded with Danzig.

The album has a natural feel, thanks to the way the iconic Danzig attacked the recording process, choosing to steer clear of studio trickery and technology. “I think that fans will really dig this new album,” said Danzig in a statement. “I’ve been told several times that the album has a cool vitality to it, that it sounds energized, and I got that feeling when I was recording it. I wanted to have an organic sound, bigger and thicker, so I went out and bought some 1970’s Kustom tuck ‘n’ roll bass amps to play some of the guitar parts through. You’ll hear real reverb, real tremolo on this album, which sounds completely different than the stuff that’s done with computer chips.”

From that description, it sounds like ‘Deth Red Sabaoth’ is going to be beefier than Danzig’s arms, which look like they could crush walnuts!” — Amy Sciarretto, Noisecreep
