Veteran gloom-rocker covers classics on new album, “Skeletons”.
Danzig fans (and ZZ Top fans and Aerosmith fans and The Troggs fans and…) rejoice! The legendary doom-rocker and ex-MISFITS front-man has a new disc ready to roll out called “Skeletons” (Nuclear Blast/Evillive Records) and it’s a bit of a departure.
Judging from the new press photo above, Danizg is still ample pissed at the planet but “Skeletons” offers a brighter side and, in some cases, a wildly stranger side, to the notorious Satanic curmudgeon. See, “Skeletons” is a cover album and man alive are some of the tunes selected here off the beaten, bloody path…
These are my skeletons, says Danzig. You may or may not know that I dig these songs. You could say that some of this music is the actual basis and skeleton of what I listened to growing upultimately informing the kind of music I like. Its the foundation. If you took Elvis and Sabbath out of my life, I probably wouldnt be the Glenn Danzig you know! Im glad both sides are represented on this record.
Here’s a look at the full track list:
1. Devil’s Angels (from Devils Angels soundtrack)
I don’t know about you, but a cover of a track ripped from an Al Adamson flick…well, Holy Hell…we’re in!
“Skeletons” streets November 27th.
