Danzig's "Deth Red Sabaoth" Charts At #35

The release of DANZIG’s brand new album, "Deth Red Sabaoth" (reviewed here), returns the artist to the Billboard Charts this week. "Deth Red Sabaoth" was released on June 22 on Evilive/The End Records and is Danzig’s ninth studio album and first in over six years. The album debuts this week on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart at #35 and at #3 on the Top Independent Album Chart. It marks Danzig’s highest-charting album since the release of "Danzig 4" in 1994.

The 11-track collection was written and produced by Glenn Danzig and joining Glenn in the studio for the recording of Deth Red Sabaoth were guitarist Tommy Victor (Prong, Ministry), a Danzig cohort on and off since 1997, and drummer Johnny Kelly (Type O Negative, Seventh Void). While Kelly has toured with Glenn intermittently since 2002, this is the first time he has recorded with the band. Glenn handled the bass chores for most of the album, and played drums on "Black Candy."

The CD cover artwork for Deth Red Sabaoth is an original painting by artist Joe Chiodo whose work has graced not only Danzig's Verotik publishing line, but the covers of numerous graphic novels and comic books, including "X-Men Unlimited."

Deth Red Sabaoth marks Danzig's ninth studio venture that began back in 1988 with the Rick Rubin-produced, Platinum-certified, Danzig. In 1993 "Mother" became a major hit and added to his iconic status that began over a decade earlier when he founded the near-mythic punk band Misfits and then Samhain.

Danzig - Glenn, guitarist Tommy Victor, drummer Johnny Kelly and bassist Steve Zing - also a founding member of Samhain with Glenn – recently completed an exclusive 9-city album release tour and will continue to tour extensively to support Deth Red Sabaoth.

Chuck Biscuits Is (Probably) Alive And Well

Contrary to the previous report, Chuck Biscuits, former member of Danzig and hardcore acts such as Black Flag, Social Distortion and Circle Jerks, as well as lending his talents to Hip-Hop legends Run DMC, is apparently still alive. Confirmation that he is, in fact, still alive has yet to come back, but it seems that reports of his death stemmed from an elaborate hoax. With the source of the original report being completely fooled, yet sounding legitimate, news spread across scores of site and even Biscuits' Wikipdia entry was updated to reflect his death. Brooklyn Vegan has an indepth rundown and commentary on the whole thing if you're interested in the details.
