This entry is part 4 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).

As I previously stated, How the Gods Kill is Danzig’s most complete album. Slotting in a track no. 4 and clocking in a nearly six minutes long, the title track is one of Danzig’s most epic recording achievements. From Glenn’s lyrics and slow, quiet parts, to the uproar of another classic riff from John Christ, it’s easy to get lost in this song. “Would you let it go?”
