18:18 - Alex Lemon Glad to see you added Desire's sophomore release as opposed to their debut. While I enjoy both, their second full length is their best imo
18:12 - EMols86 [link] So I just added Arcturus, Desire, Disillusion, Nocturnus and Shape Of Despair albums to my list. Definitely an improvement.

15:56 - Apothecary I love the punk feel of this, like Kvelertak on PCP [link]
15:52 - EMols86 @Jaeryd17 that's pretty cool (and insane if it were real), but I've heard of that concept before. @huascaman probably in the top 20 of best movies I've ever seen (for the record, I've seen 1200+ movies :P).
The legendary Danzig will be celebrating their 25th anniversary this year with a tour. The band has already announced the first leg of the tour which will feature Danzig plus Glenn Danzig and Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein performing the music of the Misfits. The special guests on these US dates are Corrosion Of Conformity and The Agonist.
Danzig will be releasing a yet untitled covers album later this year, including songs from Elvis and Black Sabbath. Danzig has recently premiered the first single off that album, "Devil's Angels", at their website. The song is a cover from the late '60's movie theme song of the same name. The full covers album tracklist will be revealed soon.
"Ju Ju Bone", the new video from Danzig, can be viewed at ARTISTdirect.com. The video was co-directed by Glenn Danzig and Jonathan Lewis, who is also the director of the horror cult classic "Black Devil Doll".
"Ju Ju Bone" comes off the band's latest album, entitled Deth Red Sabaoth, which was released on June 22, 2010 via Evilive/The End Records.

Danzig recently shot a video for the song "Crawl across Your Killing Floor" outside of Los Angeles. The track will be included on the upcoming "Lost Tracks of Danzig" collection, a two-CD set of previously unreleased Danzig tracks spaning the band's entire career; from the 1988 self-titled debut to the present. A November release is expected.
As previously reported, Glenn Danzig's long-awaited "Black Aria II" CD, the follow-up to the original "Black Aria" (1993), will be available in stores on September 19, 2006. The album, the material for which has apparently been written for five years, is a classical, operatic piece based on Lilith, the mythological first wife of Adam, according to Danzig. "It's different from the first record but similar in a lot of ways," he said.
The release date of DANZIG's eighth studio album, "Circle of Snakes", has been pushed back to the last week of August, according to the official DANZIG fansite The 7th House. A single from the album — containing the title cut, "1000 Devils Reign" and another song to be announced later — will surface by the end of June. The album will be released through Glenn Danzig's Evilive label in the U.S. and Regain Records in Europe.
"Circle of Snakes" track listing:
03. 1000 Devils Reign
04. Circle of Snakes
07. When We Were Dead
08. TBA (working title: "Devilsnight")
09. Skull Forrest
