Danzig And Paradise Lost At Brixton Academy

Some pairings just fit perfectly. Bread and butter, salt and vinegar and in tonight's case, Danzig and Paradise Lost. The two veterans are both celebrating thirty years of their respective bands this year and joined forced for two nights only in the United Kingdom last week, the first taking place in Glasgow and the second in London. I went along to South London's Brixton Academy, one of several venues in the country under the sponsorship of mobile phone company, 02.

Taking to the stage with "No Hope In Sight," from the 2015 album, "The Plague Within," England's own, Paradise Lost offered no frills but plenty of darkness and Gothic visions with a lively set which featured no more than one song per album represented. This included only one song, "Blood and Chaos" from their latest opus, "Medusa," along with more recent material such as the title track from 2009's, "Faith Divides Us Death Unites Us" and "The Enemy" from "In Requiem."

There was also a number of older favourites on display such as the anthemic "Ember's Fire" and the "Shades Of God" standout track, "As I Die." The quintet also brought out a cover of the Bronski Beat hit, "Small Town Boy" before finishing up with "Say Just Words" from the 1997 album, "One Second." From start to finish, Paradise Lost carried themselves with the standing of the legends they are, whilst retaining an intimate feeling throughout, resulting in a solid performance and a setlist which delighted fans.

Misfits Reunion: Fans Have To Lock Away Phones

Danzig has never been a fan of filming happening at his live performances, but his forthcoming Misfits reunion shows this month will see him go to new extremes: Those attending the show will be forced to lock their phones away in a special case created by Yondr. The below statement was sent to ticket holders explaining the situation:

“We’re writing to inform you about the updated cellphone policy at the Original Misfits Reunion Show at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

There will be no use of cellphones, smart watches, cameras or recording devices permitted during the show. This exclusive one-off performance will be completely phone-free. Tickets MUST be pre-printed prior to arriving at the venue. Guests who do not have printed E-Tickets will not be permitted into the venue. Additional re-print fees will apply at the Box Office.

Upon arrival at the venue, all phones and smart watches will be secured in Yondr cases that will be unlocked at the end of the show. You’ll maintain possession of your phone throughout the event, and if needed, can access your phone at designated Yondr unlocking stations in the lobby. Your phone will be re-locked in a Yondr case before you re-enter the performance.

Anyone caught using a cellphone during the performance will be removed from the venue. We appreciate your cooperation in creating a phone-free viewing experience.”

Today, the band release the final trailer in which Dani reflects on his love for Danzig and some of his encounters with “Evil Elvis." Check it out below.

When recalling one of their many meetings, Dani comments: "He came to say hello after a show we played in LA and I was that [flustered] trying to put a top on I fell through the curtain, fell down the stairs and somebody opened the door and I literally fell into him and headbutted him. But he didn't mind at all! People see him as this arrogant man... I've heard all the tales... But last time I saw him, everybody was backstage. Me, my wife and my daughter where literally sitting up on stage to watch him. He's let me do that about three times."

Coliseum / Doomriders Re-Issuing Danzig Tribute

Magic Bullet Records will reissue the long out-of-print "Not Of this World" split 7" from Coliseum and Doomriders in November, and this week pre-orders have come online.

Back in 2005, Coliseum's Ryan Patterson self-released a 12" on his label Auxiliary, which featured both his band and Boston's Doomriders providing an ultimate tribute to the almighty Danzig. Each band turned out a cover of a song from the classic self-titled debut Danzig LP, with Coliseum adding two originals and Doomriders putting up one original track. A CD version of the release was also issued on the defunct Level Plane label.

While the Coliseum material was later repackaged into a collections release on Temporary Residence, the Doomriders material remained out-of-print for many years. As part of the upcoming Magic Bullet Records' 20th anniversary, the label is celebrating the friends and musicians that were a significant inspiration as the years went on, starting with a split 7" featuring both bands' Danzig covers from the 2005 "Not Of This World" spli More...

Danzig To Release Black Sabbath Covers Album

This was obviously an April Fool's gag. For the full list of our 2016 jokes, head here.

Heavy metal veteran Glen Danzig has confirmed that his eponymous band is following up the latest record, "Skeletons," which consisted of numerous cover versions including the Black Sabbath classic, "N.I.B." with a whole album devoted to Black Sabbath covers.

His cover of the aforementioned song received substantial feedback from social media as well as internet comment sections and the explicit music video for the song has thus far received over 150,000 views on YouTube.

With such a strong reaction to it, the singer, who claims he has found his definitive vocal style at last, will be returning to the studio to artistically interpret such classics as "Paranoid," "War Pigs," "The Wizard" and the previously instrumental piece, "Fluff," which he has penned lyrics for.

No confirmation has yet been received as to whether the videos for these songs will feature more porn stars.

The video includes adult movie stars such as Chanell Heart and is probably best watched when the children (and your wife) are out of the room due to it's graphic content, featuring both nudity and blood.

The song comes from Danzig's latest album, "Skeletons," which is a covers album including performances of such other artists as Aerosmith, Elvis Presley and The Everly Brothers amongst others. More...

Danzig Brings Blackest of the Black To Austin

Glenn Danzig started his Blackest of the Black tour over a decade ago in 2003. I caught it first in 2005 when he toured with Mortiis, Behemoth (among others) and what I believe was the first appearance of Doyle performing Misfits songs with Danzig. While this year’s lineup isn’t the “blackest,” that distinction goes to the last Blackest of the Black tour in 2010 when he took out Marduk and Possessed, Superjoint and Prong were solid acts nonetheless at this showing at Stubb’s in Austin.

Although they don’t carry the name recognition of a Phil Anselmo or Tommy Victor, openers Witch Mountain put on an impressive performance. The Portland-based doom act were in the news a year ago when longtime singer Uta Plotkin left the group and they hired 19-year-old Kayla Dixon as replacement. Dixon’s performance certainly showed she was up for the task this night. Her range was excellent. Whether she sang in a soaring almost R & B type voice or a death metal growl, her vocals were spot on. The rest of the band’s tones sounded great in their down tempo dirges. Even though there was only about 50 people in the crowd during their set, those in attendance seemed to show their approval. Touring with a big name like Danzig has to be doing wonders for their career.
