During his time in the seminal hardcore band the Misfits, vocalist Glenn Danzig displayed a fascination with outlandish, graphic, often gory imagery; in forming the more heavy metal-oriented band Samhain, Danzig's lyrics delved into typical metal subject matter, but took the concept of darkness to an extreme.

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.Read more ›
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.
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.
