The Lost Tracks of Danzig


The man who created the color black will never retire, nor will his importance to both metal and punk rock ever fade.

Danzig has unearthed 26 unreleased songs from his past, tracks that didn’t make it onto any of the band’s 7 album “arc” that began with 1988’s Danzig. Of these lost tracks, some are obvious cutting room floor material that has only now seen the light of day because Danzig fans are always desperate for more from the man. Others are choice cuts that may have just fallen through the studio cracks, or were even too controversial for release (if you can imagine a Glenn Danzig penned tune being “too controversial”).

The songs that make this bold 2 disc collection a worthy cause are:

“Angels of the Seventh Dawn” — originally recorded for Danzig II: Lucifuge

“Come To Silver” — an acoustic version of the song that was originally written for Johnny Cash but never got recorded by the real man in black because Danzig had left DefJam and took the song with him

“Lick the Blood Off My Hands” — recorded for Danzig 5: Blackaciddevil, but didn’t make it onto the final cut

“Crawl Across Your Killing Floor” — a song so bluesy and badass that even Danzig himself calls it a favorite. It didn’t get finished in time to make it onto Danzig 6: Satan’s Child, so now it resides as the gem within this collection.

Also included are a few cover songs (David Bowie, T. Rex, The Germs), and a CD booklet with an explanation for every song’s origin. Like virtually everything Danzig produces, this artwork is one more in a long line of must-haves.
