Danzig Signs To The End Records and Announces New Album "Deth Red Sabaoth"

Glenn Danzig is set to unleash his first new Danzig studio album in six years. "Deth Red Sabaoth," produced by Glenn and recorded in Los Angeles over the course of 2009, will be released on June 22, 2010 through Evilive and The End Records. The cover artwork will be done by artist Joe Chiodo.

The 11-track collection, penned by Danzig, includes tracks like "Black Candy," "The Revengeful," and the first single, "On A Wicked Night." Part 1 of the exquisite two-part "Pyre of Souls" opens with acoustic guitar, haunting piano, Glenn's plainsong vocal, and an almost dirge-like feel; Part II explodes with electric guitars and a driving, mesmerizing cadence.

"I think that fans will really dig this new album," said Glenn. "I've been told several times that the album has a cool vitality to it, it sounds energized, and I got that feeling when I was recording it. I wanted it to have an organic sound, bigger and thicker, so I went out and bought some 1970's Kustom tuck 'n roll bass amps to play some of the guitar parts through. You'll hear real reverb, real tremolo on this album, which sounds completely different than the stuff that's done with computer chips."

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 for most of the album, and played drums on "Black Candy."

YES!! Darken the skies and let the Deth Red Sabaoth arrive!! This album is gonna rule! Damn! I am f***in' psyched! Wonder when and who he's gonna tour with this year? I'm sure his last tour with Dimmu rocked, but hopefully he'll get Gorgeous Frankenstein back! Also, I just heard him do a song called "Fathers Grave" with Melissa Auf der Maur (think she was bass player for Hole?)...awesome creepy song! Danzig saying "I dug your fathers grave" is priceless!

hellrat, I just found the Black Aria pt.I on a tape as well during last Xmas vacations. Given it a few rotations... weird, spooky in a satanic ceremony kind of way, but overall, pretty cool stuff, agreed!
