FOUNDATIONS FORUM PROMO, August 29, 1988 ---------------------------------------- CONCRETE August 29, 1988 Dear Metal VIP: Find yourself a comfortable chair. One that will cushion your body from the effect that DANZIG, the latest musical attack from one of the premiere Punk/Metal creators, Glenn Danzig, will reek on you. The album (Def Jam stock #24208) will be descending on stores around the country August 30. Leader Glenn Danzig, one of the founding members of seventies punk/metal cult band THE MISFITS as well as TALUS and SAMHAIN, illustrates on DANZIG his signature rock-bottom rumble vocals, getting assistance from Eerie Von on bass, Chuck Bisquits on drums and John Christ on guitar. On the special promo advance CD enclosed in this package, pay special attention to "Mother", set as the first single. A sure-fire pick up on AOR, College & Alternative and Metal radio across the country, "Mother" is also currently being sent to MTV and other national broadcast TV stations around the U.S. You can catch DANZIG live on tour, with Slayer through August and headlining a solo club tour in the U.S. from September - October. Never one to disappoint the die-hard fans, Glenn's return to the "Cycle Punk Metal" spotlight with DANZIG re-establishes the idea that Metal Cool is "Alive and well and living in New York!" Let us know if we can further help you in spreading the Gospel According To DANZIG.

Samhain solidified DANZIG's metal and punk influence with Initium, Unholy Passion, and November Coming Fire. Glenn has also written the title cut for the film "Less Than Zero" with collaboration from producer Rick Rubin, as well as penning "Life Fades Away" for his longtime idol Roy Orbison. Eerie Von - Bass Discovered by and later learning the bass from teacher Glenn Danzig, Eerie co-founded DANZIG with Glenn in 1987, creating a now familiar pulsating, "ready to erupt" backdrop rhythm section. Chuck Bisquits - Drums Chuck joined up with Glenn to play drums in Danzig after the demise of Samhain in 1987. His bone-crushing driving riffs contribute to DANZIG's "thrash & crash" rhythm. John Christ - Guitar John's "cut like a knife" lead guitar gets beneath the skin like a cold chill 'n hot sweat, as he has carried, DANZIG through metal recognition since 1987. The four create DANZIG, the 80's answer to Cycle Punk Metal. DANZIG will be released nationally August 30.
