Although Danzig experimented with their sound throughout their career, they were never better than on their debut album. This has stood the test of time quite nicely. You still hear "Mother" and "Twist of Cain" frequently on the heavier radio stations and sometimes even "Am I Demon?" and there's a reason why. They had great simple memorable riffs and Glenn had the Elvis from Hell shtick down. All of the songs here are very good and the aforementioned "Mother" would actually be a big hit six years later at the height of grunge when featured on the EP Demonsweatlive. "She Rides" would become a legendary song in the strip clubs while "Not of this World" and "Evil Thing" had killer guitar lines that attracted fans of both punk and heavy metal. The songs "Soul on Fire", "Possession", and "End of Time" were more dramatic and were just as impressive. And what other band of the genre could take blues legend Albert King's "The Hunter" and nearly make it their own? I stopped listening to this kind of music on a regular basis about 20 years ago. But I can still listen to this and get into it.

For those who are new to the work of Glenn Danzig this is really a good place to start. As compared with Glenns lengthy and astounding carer including the misfits and samhain this is a great place to start as i said before. Here is a rundown of the tracks and just why thet are great.
1. Twist of cain: Great starter for the record and originally a samhain demo. THe opening riff is so catchy snd glenn comes in with that iconic scream. Very Doomy but hard edged at the same time finally ending with an amazing drum break down from Drummer Chuck Bicuits.Lyricaly very much in the vein as samhain.
2. Not of this world: Another great opening riff snf Glenns vocals shine again here. There is a great bridge John christ that makes for a nice build up for the chorus thats very powerful. Lyrically again allof these song feel like samhain songs...well more near November coming fire than intium or unholy passion. When i listen to this record it really seems like this could have easily been samhain 4 had names not been changed.
3. She rides: Very down and dirty blues song. Very very sexual.
4. Soul on fire: Starts very slow and kind of ominus but builds into a powerfull verse and even more so chorus. Very powerful vocals on this song inparticular.
5. Am i demon: Very fast song, almost thrashy with a great technical solo by john Christ.
6.Mother: Anyone who knows this song then...i dont have to say anything, it speaks for itself.
7. Possesion: Anothe left over samhain track. Like Twist of cain its much more polished. Lyricaly this is one of the more darker songs.
8. End of time: Very slow song, lyrically this could almost passa as a ballad but im still not sure.
9. The Hunter: Mid paced song, almost feel like the record is staring to wind down a little.
10. Evil thing: Another mis paced song. A good closer.
thats all for now thanks

On of the best albums of the 80s, this classic has top to bottem hits, and every single song is catchy and memorable. Definately worth checking out of you are a fan of blues and doom metal.

This album was released about a year after Danzig was formed from the ashes of Samhain. Moving away from his previous sounds of punk, we end up with a goth/metal album with a blues undertone, this is one of the best albums Danzig has released.

I highly recommend this album for any fan of Danzig, or if you just now getting into any of his works this is a good starting point as well as Misfits or Samhain all great bodies of work from the evil Elvis.
Danzig- Vocals
John Christ- Guitar
Eerie Von- Bass
Chuck Biscuits- Drums

A huge change up from his days with the Mizfits but Danzig proves he's just as good, if not better, as a solo artist with this album.

First heard Glenn Danzig on Sirius radio. Didn't know who he was. Liked him enough to try this album and glad I did. Includes Mother(the track I heard on Sirius), and the rest is solid as well. Checked Danzig's bio. The dude is a little out there, and probably not very religious. Nevertheless, a strong vocalist with a different style. Don't pay attention to his message in the vocals, whatever that may be, and you will enjoy this album.
