On A Wicked Night

I am simply amazed (and delighted) about how many of the bands I loved as a teenager/young adult are still putting out exciting and excellent new music as of late. Slayer, Ratt, Metallica, Megadeth, Dinosaur Jr., U2, Alice In Chains, Scorpions, Testament and Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers all come to mind off the top of my head and now it appears the legendary Glenn Danzig might be prepared for a comeback under the banner of the band named after him. I love the first four Danzig albums and even think the fifth one, Blackacidevil was pretty decent, but they lost me after that. He is now preparing to release the 9th Danzig studio album and his new label The End has put up the first single on their website. Verdict? This sounds like prime era Danzig (think Lucifuge and How The Gods Kill) and is therefore pretty fantastic sounding. I have it from a reliable source that the rest of the album sticks with the style of his first few albums and is completely killer. Guess we'll find out when Deth Red Sabaoth is released on June 22.
