Glenn Danzig

You know it’s Danzig the moment you hear him. It’s not just that inimitable voice either. It’s the thick airy guitars, bluesy swagger, and “come hither” evil that placed him at the forefront of a number of musical revolutions. His work has indelibly impacted the landscape of extreme music, fortifying the crossroads between heavy riffs and occult imagery so prevalent these days. Moreover, you can consistently feel his presence throughout pop culture which expands further with his successful Verotik Comics and forthcoming feature film directorial debut. However,Danzig wants to show you where it started with his tenth full-length album and first since 2010’s Deth Red SaboathSkeletons.

Vains of Jenna is no stranger to Live Metal. In our early days, they were one of the first bands we formed a real relationship with. According to drummer Jacki Stone, he did his first real interviews with our site back in 2007, first with the release of their debut album, Lit Up/Let Down, and then while opening a U.S. summer tour with Poison and Ratt. How about that? (more…)
