5.0 out of 5 stars Find Out Exactly What You Do Believe Feb. 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
Not many musicians have career peaks that last more than fifteen years. Glenn Danzig may be the only musician to consistently put out great albums for such a long period of time. From the very first Misfits album through Samhain to Danzig 4, Danzig has buried the competition. After "Lucifuge", Glenn Danzig finally began to slow down.
Glenn Danzig made the cross over with a fifty/fifty hardcore metal blend in the mid-eighties with his band Samhain. His next project, Danzig, was 98% metal.
Danzig's debt album was very good with plenty of catchy guitar hooks, but it still seemed undeveloped. On "Lucifuge", he hit full stride.
People say Danzig's voice is a cross between Elvis Presley and Jim Morrison. His voice is way too unique to be classified and any comparison to past vocalists doesn't do justice.
There has never been a more sinister sounding recording. Even Black Sabbath could not be darker. It's not just the Satanic theme in the lyrics. The music is like razor sharp teeth. The Blues influence meets sludgy thrash type riffs. In parts it crawls, then howls, then flies off. Whether it's the type of distortion on the guitars or the slow, heavy bass lines, every single piece of sound makes this album seem as dark as possible. This is the audio equivalent of "The Exorcist" and "Rosemary's Baby".
"Long Way Back From Hell" begins with ringing and screaming guitars that feel like a descent into hell, the vocals serve as a warning, and Danzig's voice is absolutely flawless. "Snakes Of Christ"guitars saw through the soul. "Killer Wolf" showcases Danzig's vocals perfectly. "Tired Of Being Alive" ups the tempo and rises up during the chorus to unbelievable heights. "I'm The One" is like a folk-blues classic straight from the swamps of Louisiana.

4.0 out of 5 stars "gonna dance in the death of light" Jan. 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
If Jim Morrison and the devil collaborated in the studio this would be the result...and it's not bad. Some of the tracks here are straight up metal-but not too heavy-and others have a more classic rock sound; all of which feature Glenn Danzig's seductive vocals. The most classic rock 'n roll sounding tracks are "I'm the One" and the slow "Blood and Tears." The latter would've even been appropriate for an Elvis album. My favorite track is "Tired of Being Alive" which you can hear a clip of from the above link. It has an addictive rhythm you can't help but move your feet too, plus it has excellent backing vocals. "Girl" (my second favorite) also has an amazing beat with incredible guitar and "Morrisonian" lyrics like "Girl let's climb too high for the stars to reach us girl." Then there are songs to turn the lights out to like "Killer Wolf" and "Pain in the World." And then there is the beauty of metal in "Devil's Plaything." A mixed yet solid package that fans of the darker side of rock 'n roll will enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Doors meet Black Sabbath Dec 9 2003
Format:Audio CD
Danzig's second album features more of the blues-influenced, Sabbath-themed metal that made them popular. Musically they are a major improvement over the basic sounds of their self-titled debut, and lyrically are just as playfully dark. John Christ really begins to show his guitar talents here. Eerie Von's bass is still simple but very effective, and Chuck Biscuits is coming along well as a drummer. Glenn Danzig himself has also polished his singing abilities and vocal range, and really creates some great songs here.
The album starts right off with "Long Way Back from Hell," a fast-paced riff piece with great bass and drums present. It is even with this song that it becomes clear that there is much more musical diversity on this album, as evident in songs such as "Devil's Plaything" (a great semi-ballad with slow, melodic verses and heavy, powerful choruses).
Other songs, such as "Killer Wolf" and "I'm the One" really emphasize Danzig's blues influences. Just listen to them to know what I mean. The latter song is acoustic-based, and is sometimes just the thing to listen to when you want to feel powerful. Ooh, I love that song. Also, "777" is an acoustic/clean-electric based blues rocker, complete with slide guitar in the chorus!
Finally, "Blood and Tears" is a piano/keyboard-peppered semi-ballad with sort of melancholic choruses and general feel, with mostly clean guitars and a nice, slower beat to it. Great solo from John Christ, too. This song is possibly the best on the album.
All in all, this album is not nearly as good as DANZIG III: HOW THE GODS KILL (that one is their absolute peak, in my opinion), but it is still quite good. This is where Danzig really begins to form similarities to the Doors as well as Black Sabbath.

5.0 out of 5 stars Horror Metal Masterpiece. July 10 2003
Format:Audio CD
Despite a dull and lukewarm first album, Lucifuge tears down that first bad impression for good , blending magnificently, healthy doses of Metal, Punk, Blues and Gothic overtones. Definitely, Lucifuge is not a revolutionary record, in fact, the structure and dynamics of the songs are not out of this world. However, the blazing spot of the album is precisely the great quality of the tunes, regardless its economical and "standarized" musical approach. All the songs are performed with pasion, lust and with that fascinating ominous aura so characteristic of Glenn Danzig. Is precisely the "cartoonish" sense of evil- that doesn't mean less menacing- along with catchy melodic lines and memorable choruses what make Lucifuge so fascinating.
The musical foundation is solid as a rock thanks to John Christ (g), Eerie Von (b), Chuck Biscuits (d), but the show belongs to Mr.Danzig's vocal performance which creates passages of post-modern obscurantism and gothic horror; sharing with us his depressing conception on modern life along with his affection for class "B" horror parnafernalia. A nice trip to Hell.
