Those reviewers who dismiss this by saying he can't sing anymore and that only Danzig I-IV are relevant must not listen to the whole danzig collection. Sure, danzig I-IV have a voice clarity not found on later releases, but pop in any of the old Misfits or Samhain stuff, and you would be able to see that distorted "bellering" lyrics in the style you find on this album are what you find on the majority of Danzig's recordings. Not everything has to have the vocal clarity of Snakes of Christ or Mother to be good. I actually like this album alot because his voice sounds MORE like it used to BEFORE Danzig I-IV. I mean - if some of you had reviewed Earth AD when it came out back in the day you would have probably said that the man's career was over then. I for one am glad that Danzig is NOT working with Rick Rubin - it makes his sound too polished and commercial (not to say that I don't really like those albums) but the raw sound here definitely takes him back to his roots a bit. Just remember - the "Crooner" albums (I-IV) are the minority of the Danzig experience, and I would take any of the tracks on this album over "Killer Wolf", "Heart of the Devil" or "I'm the One". Best tracks on 7 are Black Mass, Liberskull, Coldest Sun, Halo Goddess Bone, and Without Light, I am. The duds are Wicked Pussycat (this song does not fit with the rest), Angel Blake (sorry - I just can't like it) and God of Light (should have been left off the album - weak). The rest is definitely way above average.
