Mr. Showbiz; Music Reviews: Danzig, 11/6/96 ------------------------------------------- If the addition of Glenn Danzig to the Disney stable caused so much media furor, one can only imagine that the actual clangor of Blackacidevil will send the Hunchback to the sanctuary of the bell tower, the Little Mermaid back to the sea, and Mickey scurrying for the nearest hole in the wall. But it should also send metal fans to the stores in droves to pick up what is one of Danzig's best outings, and certainly the freshest thing he's come up with in a number of years. This time out, the tattooed muscle man embraces the industrial genre, picking up some of the strains he explored with Samhain, the group he led between his time with the Misfits and his current band. Where Danzig's previous albums were heavy, Blackacidevil is hard. The five prior efforts offered studied demonic posturing; this one can be downright scary, with Danzig's muted vocals and an instrumental grind 'n' clang that can hold its own next to most any Ministry, nine inch nails, or Skinny Puppy entry. Don't believe it? Check out the sludgehammer groove of "See All You Were" or the Indy-car speed-shifting of "Sacrifice." But for headbangers worried that they've lost their closet link to Lucifer, Danzig's revision of Black Sabbath's "Hand of Doom: Version" --one of three Blackacidevil songs featuring Alice in Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell--shows Glenn Danzig still remembers from whence he came.
