Welcome to the band side of my Danzig pages. It's mostly centered around what I consider "classic" Danzig - the first four albums. Maybe I'll have time for the rest later, but who cares?

"Danzig is an American heavy metal band led by former Samhain and Misfits singer Glenn Danzig. Formed in 1987 in Lodi, New Jersey, the group early on became a unique voice in the rock scene, playing a bluesy, doom-laden metal with Glenn Danzig crooning in the style of Roy Orbison and Elvis Presley."

the "danzig handbook"The "Danzig Handbook" was a promo booklet included with the Mother '93 single release. It came folded up with the CD sleeve, & was available on 4 different papers, including purple - which I have here to share via the Magic of Archive.org. My favorite section is probably "A Day In The Life of DANZIG" especially for Eerie Von's schedule. The whole thing just absolutely reeks with 90s cheese, like - the inclusion of Beavis & Butthead? Immaculate. I'm amazed that someone spent time putting this together & getting it approved, and that someone deemed it necessary to include a recipe for "Thrall Bars™". I personally could have done without the mention of underage girls in John Christs schedule page, but hey - it was 1993 & I can see that passing as humor to a label exec, and the ridiculousness of the rest of the pages make up for it IMHO.

Eerie Von's Facebook - He talks a lot about music, & is always sharing old photos. Dude is so sweet.
Audio recording of the "first" Danzig show (City Gardens, NJ - 1988) Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4
(Don't expect much from the sound quality, I just thought it was cool)
Danzig VHS, 1990 Part home-movie, part music, if I only had access to one Danzig related video it would be this one.
Lucifuge VHS Same idea, still pretty classic.
2010-ish Thrasher interview Short, Glenn's just an asshole though 99% of it so I got a laugh.

Current official Danzig site I mean, I guess it's cool.
