What seems like a lifetime ago I was introduced to the work of the infamous Misfits, and through that the even more infamous Glenn Danzig. At the time I was still very new to the worlds of metal and punk, so I had no real reference point for what was thrown at me. I can honestly say that up to that point in my youth I had only heard Metallica, Megadeth, Black Sabbath/Ozzy, and Slayer.
So the Misfits entered the picture and I attempted to find Samhain material, which was nowhere to be found in the rural SE Indiana area I'm from, at least in the early 90's it wasn't. So I went out and hunted down the first Danzig disc, quickly to be followed by II and III. For this naive youth it was quite an eye opener. I hadn't been exposed to anyone who used the romantic approach to anything "dark" before. So I have to honestly say that to this day I have never been able to honestly judge what these albums are truly worth to the metal community, because my bias is far too extreme in favor of them, mostly because of the timing and age that I was exposed to the material.
So, how would Danzig measure up to you in your musical adventures??
