This entry is part 1 of 11 in the series The Top 10 Danzig songs

Here are my Top 10 Danzig songs of the now-classic original lineup of Danzig (vocals), John Christ (guitars), Eerie Von (bass) and Chuck Biscuits (drums). This lineup was active years 1987-1994 and released the most iconic and revered albums among fans with Danzig (1988), Danzig II: Lucifuge (1990), Danzig III: How the Gods Kill (1992) and Danzig 4(1994).

(Danzig II: Lucifuge, 1990)

For myself, “Her Black Wings” is the signature Danzig track. It encompasses all the evil and occult nature of this band, along with being a perfectly executed song. The music video is also iconic. Lyrically, Glenn seems to be enchanted by a Demoness of which he’ll be taken to Hell, under “her black wings.”

Honorable mentions that could have very easily cracked the Top 10: “Twist of Cain” (Danzig) “Snakes of Christ” (Danzig II: Lucifuge), “Sistinas” (Danzig III: How the Gods Kill), “Bringer of Death” (Danzig 4)
