DANZIG: Returns to Billboard charts with “Deth Red Sabaoth”

DANZIG’S DETH RED SABAOTH DEBUT’S AT
#35 on BILLBOARD TOP 200 ALBUMS CHART
#3 on TOP INDEPENDENT ARTISTS CHART

“It’s wonderful to hear Danzig & Co. do that voodoo they do so well … the new record delivers the thrills and chills that fans would hope for, and that Danzig, at his best, is so good at serving up.”
**** – REVOLVER

 
Brooklyn, NY – The release of DANZIG’s brand new album, Deth Red Sabaoth returns the legendary artist to the Billboard Charts this week.
 
Deth Red Sabaoth was released on June 22 on Evilive/The End Records and is Danzig’s ninth studio album and first in over six years. The album debuts this week on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart at #35 and at #3 on the Top Independent Album Chart. It marks Danzig’s highest-charting album since the release of Danzig 4 in 1994.
 
The 11-track collection was written and produced by Glenn Danzig and 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 chores for most of the album, and played drums on “Black Candy.”
 
The CD cover artwork for Deth Red Sabaoth is an original painting by the award-winning artist Joe Chiodo whose work has graced not only Danzig’s Verotik publishing line, but the covers of numerous graphic novels and comic books, including “X-Men Unlimited.”
 
Deth Red Sabaoth marks Danzig’s ninth studio venture that began back in 1988 with the Rick Rubin-produced, Platinum-certified, Danzig. In 1993 “Mother” became a major hit and added to his iconic status that began over a decade earlier when he founded the near-mythic punk band Misfits and then Samhain.  Sales of over ten-million albums later and having been dubbed “goth-punk’s godfather” by SPIN, Glenn Danzig is arguably the most versatile talent to emerge from hardcore’s first wave, and truly is a renaissance man – a graphic designer, photographer, comic book publisher and composer.  His venture into composing and recording classical music yielded Black Aria, that debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Classical charts, and Black Aria II, that had Glenn sharing the Billboard/Classical’s Top Ten with Itzhak Perlman and Andrea Bocelli.  His indelible stamp is on artists like Marilyn Manson and Nine Inch Nails, and he has written songs that have been sung by a diverse array of artists, from Metallica to Roy Orbison to Johnny Cash.
 
Over his decades-long career, Glenn Danzig’s intense musical and lyrical statements have left a permanent mark on rock music, and continue to do so going into the 21st century.  Glenn’s song “Thirteen,” originally written for Johnny Cash and then recorded for Glenn’s own Satan’s Child album, was the opening song in last year’s box office smash and Golden Globe winner, “The Hangover.”
 
Danzig – Glenn, guitarist Tommy Victor, drummer Johnny Kelly and bassist Steve Zing – also a founding member of Samhain with Glenn – recently completed an exclusive 9-city album release tour and will continue to tour extensively to support Deth Red Sabaoth.
