If Ozzy Osbourne is the self-anointed Prince of Darkness, what does that make Glenn Danzig? The Duke of Doom, perhaps? Since the early 1980s with the Misfits and Samhain, then from 1988 with his eponymous band, the distinctive tenor of Glenn Danzig has driven his foreboding goth metal. I Luciferi stays true to his successful, occasionally silly gloom-grind formula, as evidenced by song titles such as "Black Mass," "Naked Witch," and "Dead Inside." "Kiss the Skull" smacks of Marilyn Mansons militant "Beautiful People," though its not as memorable, while the funeral, churchy, Type O Negative-like "The Coldest Sun" and the scorching "Halo Goddess Bone" are two more standouts. "Without Light, I Am" is a suitably spooky closer to this surprisingly strong showing. -- Katherine Turman
The untouchable legacy will undoubtedly be strengthened with this 2002 release on Spitfire Records. 13 tracks including 'Black Mass', 'Liberskull', 'Naked Witch' & 'Halo Goddess Bone'.

Ask someone to name 3 of their favorite albums and 3 albums that were the most disappointing to them and you will most likely get a very prompt answer. Ask the same person to name 3 of the most mediocre albums they have ever heard and they will have a loss for words.
I feel Danzig never walked that line. While most other bands leaped for the line (cough, Metallica) when greed came before the music. Danzig, I feel, has always been about the music first. He could care less if MTV or radio ever plays his music. Take Black Aria, his music transends his genre and even his voice. His music has always been about power.
If you want to feel that power soar through your veins and the evil inside you flow like a river of blood then let yourself be taken by 777:I Luciferi. Let the album grow in your mind like a seed spreading its grip over your soul.
Anyway, this album rocked. Try listening to it through your 15" sub with 400watts of juice flowing to it doing 120 on the Interstate. I love all Danzig albums, except 5 of course. I had to buy another copy of 666 because I was listening to it in my car and house so much it got all messed up. Not that I care because I will buy it again when the time comes.
777 is simply horrible. I had low expectations going into it, and even THEY weren't met. That is all I have to say about 777.
Glenn Danzig could learn a lot from Johnny Cash's example: get back with Rick Rubin & American Recordings, strip away all the nonsense, pick up a guitar, and SING.
What could possibly be better than an ACOUSTIC Glenn Danzig LP?? Just a guitar & THAT VOICE! He was born to do it and I really wish he would.
Because ANYTHING would be better than what he's doing now.

After the truly atrocious Blackacidevil and Satans Child, Danzig returns to his real sound, well maybe not his real sound, but a very good one. Read morePublished on May 2 2004 by HeadbangerDuh

The intro, Unendlich is a refreshing change from Overture of the Rebel Angels. Black Mass is a sing along favorite- "the bornless one"- hell yeah. Read morePublished on Jan. 13 2004 by Joseph Johnson
Though Danzig hasn't ever really had a guitarist that ruled; he and his band still dominate. He is old and still could be on the radio if people got over his age. Read morePublished on Dec 13 2003 by Nick
All these people complaining about Blackacidevil and 6:66 are babies and are probably only Danzig fans and not Samhain and Misfit fans. Read morePublished on Dec 5 2003 by Michael Gonnella
