Over the last couple of years Glen Danzig, the legendary frontman of Danzig, Samhain and of course The Misfits, has been out on the road doing Danzig Legacy shows where he and his band and special guests perform music from all of his bands. Since this year marks the 25th anniversary of Danzig as we know it he again has been on tour celebrating his 25th anniversary. His set has had all the Danzig songs you would expect, plus some Samhain gems and it’s been ending with a set of Misfit tunes featuring his bassist from The Misfits Doyle Von Frankenstein. In honor of the last round of tour dates being booked we help celebrate everything Danzig this weekend.
In honor of all this Danzig stuff this week we go In The Vault with a rare onstage interview with Glenn from 1983 as The Misfits were getting set to release what would be their final album with Danzig called Earth A.D.
Did you know that Danzig’s biggest song “Mother” didn’t become the big hit until it’s re-release on 1993′s Thrall:Demonsweatlive? Since this live e.p. spawned his biggest hit we’ll play the four live tracks found on it during this week’s Power Set.
Since we are celebrating all things Danzig this week’s Then & Now features his Misfits band mate Doyle. Doyle’s new album is called Abominator and we’ll lay down a new tune from it plus an old school Misfits song.
And since Danzig’s music has been featured in a few different movies and TV shows, this week’s heavy metal movie and soundtrack recommendation isn’t so much a soundtrack as it is a look at Danzig in pop culture. For example, that time he bought Carl’s house on Aqua Teen Hunger Force because it had running Elf blood going through it.
This plus metal from Rob Zombie, Ozzy, Type O Negative, Metallica and more inside Hangar 19.
