What's this about a split?

On July 5th 1995 John Christ and Eerie Von terminated their contracts with 
Danzig and left the band.

John Christ is currently writing songs for a solo album, doing some guitar 
clinics for Ibanez, freelance writing for RIP magazine (see "Ozzy meets 
Christ" in October issue") and doing studio work for film composers in Los 
Angeles as well as fielding offers from other bands.

Eerie Von is working on his new blues band in New Jersey playing bass and 
handling the vocals with guitar by long-time Danzig soundman Rick Dittamo.

Glenn will be going into the studio on August 24th to begin work on a new 
Danzig album with Joey Castillo; Glenn will be playing guitar, bass and 
probably keboards on this album.  It will be released in the spring and 
accopmpanied by a major tour; there is also a possibility (according to 
Glenn) of a late fall tour with White Zombie on the west coast with new 
musicians to play live.  And yes, the band will still be called "Danzig".

Joey may also be playing on the upcoming Sugartooth album and I have heard 
that Chuck Biscuits has a new band.

Why did Chuck leave?

According to an interview with Glenn in the October 14, 1994 issue of
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, "He opted to leave the band on the Metallica
tour,"  insists Danzig, claiming that Biscuits refused to sign both
an employment  contract and a no drug contract. "Our problems with
Chuck getting his life  together go back over two years....the band
was tired of being his nanny."

Biscuits suffered from drug problems; his brother Kenneth Montgomery,
better  known as "Dim Wit" (a member of punk band D.O.A. and later
drummer for the Four Horsemen as well as one time Danzig roadie)
O.D.'d on heroin in late 1994.  (The Verotik published "Alphabet of
Murder" book is dedicated to the memory of Dim Wit.)
Who is the new drummer?

The new drummer is JOEY CASTILLO, formerly of SUGARTOOTH and WASTED YOUTH. 
 His first show playing live with Danzig was their free gig at the  Whiskey 
in Los Angeles, CA on 10/4/94 to promote the release of "4p".  The  first 
video he has appeared in was "Cantspeak", followed by "I  Don't Mind the 
Pain".  To  date he has not played on any Danzig  studio releases.
What does "4p" mean?

"The Four P movement is an alleged Satanic cult operating throughout
the  United States. An offshoot of the notorious Process Church of
the Final  Judgment, the Four P movement takes it's name from the
Process' original  sigil: a swastika like form composed of four
interlocking Ps. The Four P  movement was supposedly begun in 1967,
and has been connected to a number of  ritual killings across the
country, including the Son of Sam killings in New York and the Manson
Family in California."

What are the symbols on the cover of fourth album?

The symbols on the new Danzig album do indeed spell out "Danzig". The
 alphabet is a secret alphabet from Medieval Germany from the
Vehmgericht (a  secret tribunal group). The whole alphabet is
illustrated in a book called "Magical Alphabets" by Nigel Pennick
published by Samuel Weiser, Inc., 1992.
What's the hidden track on "4p" called?

Track #66 is called "Invocation" according to an interview with Glenn
in the  August 1994 issue of METAL HAMMER magazine.

What is the meaning of "777"

According to the British magician Aliester Crowley in his book "Gematria" on 
the magical correspondences of numbers, "777" corresponds to the flaming 
sword wielded by the angel that drove Adam and Eve out of the garden of Eden 
after they committed the original sin.

What about Glenn's comic book company?

In 1994 Glenn founded "VEROTIK" -  the name comes from a merging of
"violent" and "erotic" and he intends to publish the best in mature
audience  erotic horror.  Their managing editor is Stephen Wardlaw
(formerly with Tundra and Kitchen Sink) who recently replaced Hart Fisher.

To date they have published:

"Illustrations Arcanum"; large trade paperback book of pencil
illustrations  by Frank Frazetta (Frazetta's first new published work
in quite some time, a  real coup for a new publishing company!)

"Phantom Lady"; trade paperback book reprinting this rare "good girl"
comic from the 1950's with new cover art by Adam Hughes ($9.95)

"Alphabet of Murder" by Bad Otis Link; alphabet of famous killers by
one of  the artists who brought you the Cannibal Art Trading cards
(and recipes)  along with Rob Zombie and Chuck Biscuits ($4.95)

"Verotika #1, 2, 3,4";  bi monthly horror anthology comic ($2.95)   Issue #1 
contained 2 stories - "Obscenity" written by Glenn Danzig and illustrated by 
Simon Bisley which is the origin story for "Satanika".   Also  included was 
a comic adaptation of the short story "the Braille Encyclopedia" by Grant 
Morrison (which originally appeared in prose form in the horror anthology 
"Hotter Blood")  Issue #2 contained "The Room Where Love Lies" by Grant 
Morrison illustrated by Kim Hagen, as well as an adaptation of "Box 69" by 
Rex Miller.  Issue #3 contains a story by Jae ("Hellshock") Lee and an 
adaptation of the story "Demon Lover" by Nancy Collins illustrated by 
Esteban Moroto.  Issue #4 contains a Nancy Collins story and one by Hart 
Fisher with cover by Martin Emund.

Satanika #1, 2, 3  ($2.95) - ongoing series about a half human, half demon 
girl written by Glenn Danzig and illustrated by Duke Mighten.  Covers on 
issues #1 and 2 by Simon Bisley, #3 by Martin Emund.  (The first 3 issues 
will be collected in a trade paperback later this year)

Jaguar God #1 ($2.95) - ongoing series based on South American folklore; 
written by Glenn Danzig with interior artwork by Frank Teran.  Covers by 
Frank Frazetta.

Death Dealer #1 ($5.95) - ongoing series based on the famous Frazetta 
character, written by Danzig with interior art by Simon Bisley, covers by 
Frank Frazetta.

Devilman #1  written and illustrated by Go Nagai (1st US publication of 
famous manga in Japan for MANY years that inspired a TV series and two made 
for video movies).  There are two editions of #1 - a special "San Diego 
Comic Con" edition ($4.95) with a full color fold out cardstock cover and a 
regular edition ($2.95) with a black and red cover.

Due in the future will be:

"Igrat" mini series based on Satanika's opponent

"GOTH" (Government Operative Total Hate) Mini series about a secret 
experiment to create a super human gone way wrong...

"Sunglasses After Dark" adaprtation of "Sonja Blue" vampire novels by Nancy 
Collins  (A special San Diego only ashcan of this was sold at the 1995 San 
Diego Comic Con)

Other future series will include a "Vampire Hunter D" series based on
the Japanime OVA (this will be new stories, not just an adaptaion)

They will also be releasing a series of resin model kits based on Verotik 
characters.  Now available are "super deformed" small resins of Satanika and 
Dalkiel.  Out later this year will be a large piece of Satanika and Dalkiel 
sculpted from the Bisley cover to Satanika #1, and a piece of Dalkiel 
sculpted after the opening splash page by Bisley in Verotika #1.

 If you want these comics it's best to special order them in advance
from your local comic shop since so many comic stores don't carry
much in the way of indies as they are too busy catering to Marvel &
Image zombies.  If your comic store carries PREVIEWS or ADVANCE
comics (which are basically large  order books) you will find
listings of everything Verotik publishes solicited through there but
you will have to order several months in advance!

You can also order direct by mail from Verotik.  In the past they had a lot 
of trouble in filling mail orders (I'm waiting on a T shirt order from 5 
months ago...)  but according to new editor in chief Stephen Wardlaw whom I 
spoke to at the San Diego Comic Con inJuly they are working on filling the 
orders left by the previous administration.

What's up with the Samhain Box set?

This is due out in the future but there is no release date set yet. 
 According to Glenn he has been working with Eerie Von & Steve Zing on this 
and Steve dug up a lot of photos & some good quality live tapes, so the 
boxed set will contain two live Samhain CD's!  There will also be a sizable 
fold out booklet with unpublished photos (Eerie Von has been in the darkroom 
again and recently sent Glenn some more photos for it) and all of the lyrics 
including the ones to Unholy Passion and Final Descent.


What's happened to Plan 9?

Plan 9 records is no longer - Glenn is putting together a new label which 
will becalled "Evilive" - the Samhain box set will be put out on Evilive and 
Glenn may be signing other artists to his label as well.

Will Glenn play Wolverine in the  "X-Men" movie?

Glenn was sent a script for this but according to an e-mail message I 
receieved on this from American Records he has turned this project down,

What's the tattoo on Glenn's back?

The tattoo on Glenn's back (visible in the video to "She Rides") is
the logo of the Japanese manga (comic book) "Devilman" by Go Nagai.
(There are also two small Devilman heads worked into either side of
the tattoo on his arm.   Glenn Danzig's tattoos were done by Rick
Spellman of Anaheim, CA (who also did the one on Eerie Von as well as
all of Henry Rollin's).
Will there be any more releases like "Black Aria"?

According to Glenn there will be a soundtrack album for "Death
Dealer" sometime in the future.  ("Death Dealer" is a forthcoming
comic from Glenn's publishing company  Verotik based on the famous
Frank Frazetta character - it will be drawn by Simon Bisley with
covers by Frazetta)
What are the lyrics to the new songs on "Thrall"?

"Thralldemonsweat live" is the only Danzig release that was not
issued with a lyric sheet.  However, the lyrics did appear in the
press release and are as follows:

     God and life
     They don't come free
     Crown of thorns
     Strung thru their teeth

     It's Coming Down

     Sin and sweat
     They taste so sweet
     Comes the rush
     An angel screams

     It's coming down
     I'm on fire and I need a hole
     It's coming down

     Love and death
     they don't come free
     Crown and thorns
     To make you bleed

     It's coming down
     I'm on fire and I need a hole
     It's coming down

     Did you know
     I would come if you spoke my name
     Did you lie
     When you said you needed the cool
     Of the night
     To caress your deepest thoughts    
     I can hear
     All the darkest things you fear

     I'm gonna make it easy

     Did you smile
     As I wandered in the black
     Of your eyes
     Now I live among the things
     That we see
     And the darkest things you fear

     I'm gonna make it easy

     Violet Fire
     Cold in your arms
     Kiss me
     Violet fire

     If you're looking for trouble
     You came to the right place
     If you're looking for trouble
     Just stare in this face
     I was born looking out
     From my mama's sack
     My daddy was the
     Demon Werewolf Jack

     Because I'm evil
     My middle name is misery
     Said I'm evil child
     Don't you mess around with me

     Never look for trouble
     And I never am
     I don't take no orders
     From no kinda man
     I'm only made of
     Flesh and blood
     But if you're looking on
     Some trouble
     Why don't you try it on your own

     Because I'm evil
     My middle name is misery
     Said I'm evil child
     And don't you mess around
     With me

b. 6/23/5?
Co-founded Lodi NJ based punk band THE MISFITS in 1977 with bassist
Jerry Only; recorded series of now highly sought after 7" singles on
their own labels Blank records and Plan 9.  First Misfits album "Walk
Among Us" issued in 1982 on Ruby/Slash, followed by "Earth AD" on
Plan 9 in 1983.  (All other Misfits albums issued after  break up of
band)  The final Misfits show was 10/29/83 in Detroit.  Following the
breakup of the Misfits Glenn formed SAMHAIN with Misfits photographer
and sometimes roadie Eerie Von.  SAMHAIN  evolved into DANZIG in 1987
when signed to Rick Rubin's fledgling Def American (later just
American) label.  Besides his work with these bands Glenn has also
issued the 1981 solo 7 "Who Killed Marilyn", a track on the 1987
soundtrack to the movie "Less than Zero" and in 1990 the  hauntingly
beautiful classical album "Black Aria".  In 1994 he founded the
comics company Verotik, dedicated to publishing the finest in adult
oriented comics in the genre of erotic horror.

EERIE VON (Bassist for Samhain 1984-1987, Danzig 1988-1995)
b. 8/25/64
(this write up from the press kit to "Thrall-Demonsweatlive")

"Eerie Von, Danzig's bassist and master of understatement, says of
himself, "I was never a quiet person."  Danzig fans are already well
aware of Von's tornado-force energy on stage.  Perhaps it stems from
his contentment playing with a band he strongly believes in.  A New
Jersey native and professional photographer at the time, Eerie met
Glenn Danzig in the early '80's during a photo session he did with
the singer.  Eerie had been a long time Misfits fan, and as a punk
drummer himself (for NJ based band Rosemary's Babies  - EVB), he
particularly admired Glenn's artistry.  Eerie and Glenn struck up a
fast friendship, and later Von was asked to join Glenn's new band,
Samhain.  "He thought I was too much of a showman to sit behind a
drum kit, so I took up the bass."

"With Samhain, Eerie perfected his signature rapid-eighth-note style
of playing.  In 1987, when Danzig was formed, Eerie remained on
board.  Subsequent years have been spent building an ever-expanding
fanbase, but doing so strictly on Danzig's own terms.  "We won't
compromise," he says.  "If we simply wanted to 'make it', we wouldn't
be in this band."

"Despite the rigors, Eerie has never lost sight of his own
dedication.   "When I get up on stage," he notes, "the feeling is the
same as when we  started."  Eerie Von plays a Fender Jazz bass, Ampeg
heads, SVT cabinets,  D'Adario strings, and heavy picks."

JOHN CHRIST (Guitarist to 1995)
b. 2/19/65
(this write up from the press kit to "Thrall-Demonsweatlive")

"Admirers of Danzig's music owe a debt of gratitude to guitarist John
 Christ.  Not only does he bring to the band his customary
over-the-top rock  and roll chops, but his extensive classical and
jazz background gives  Danzig's music a flair and subtlety few others
can match.  But you won't get  any self-congratulation out of this
soft spoken Baltimore native; only the  same fierce determination he
shares with his band-mates to achieve success  on his own terms.

"Growing up in a musical family, John played trumpet and french horn
as a  kid, and later picked up the guitar, performing with folk
groups.  But that  all changed in one blinding moment.  "The first
time I heard "Cat Scratch  Fever" by Ted Nugent, I knew I wanted to
do that as a career."  In the  meantime he attended the prestigious
Peabody Prep in Baltimore, studying classical guitar.  He later
attended the Towson State University studying jazz bass, theory and
composition.  On the side he played guitars in local rock bands.  The
two sides of his musical personality pulled at each other until one
day, they snapped.

"In January 1987, John auditioned for the new band Glenn Danzig was
forming.   "I hadn't head anything that heavy before," he recalls.
"It was fast down  strumming, and gave me serious cramps.  I was
determined to do it."  His campaign to join Danzig didn't stop with
the audition.  He left dazzling guitar solos on Glenn's answering
machine until he was finally asked to join the  band.  Though he
looks forward to someday working again in the classical and jazz
fields, he is no less enthusiastic about his role with Danzig, and he
remains happy helping Glenn realize his vision.  "When he's trying to
pull something out of me musically, and I'm able to give it to him,
that's satisfying."

"John Christ plays late '70's model B.C. Rich guitars with Kahler
tremelos, VhT "Pit Bull" amps, Marshall cabinets, Rocktron
Intelliverb, Rocktron patchmate, VhT Power amp, and a MIDI pedal

CHUCK BISCUITS (drummer from 1988-summer 1994)
b. 4/7/65
(this write up from the press kit to "Thrall-Demonsweatlive")

"Chuck Biscuits left home at age 12 to play drums for the seminal
Vancouver-based punk band D.O.A.  Today he is an avid collector of
vintage breakfast cereals (among them an original unopened box of
Quisp, circa 1965).  Could there be a connection?  While others may
wish to probe the psychology of Mr. Biscuits, music fans are far more
content letting his drumming do all the explaining.  Chuck is one of
the most muscular and fearless drummers in rock n/ roll, and his
presence in Danzig is truly a defining feature of the band's
trademark sound.

"Part of that comes from experience.  In addition to his early teen
years  with D.O.A., a move to Los Angeles found Chuck working with
other creme de la creme punk outfits like Black Flag, the Circle
Jerks, Fear and the Weirdos.  After several tours of duty with bands
like these, it's no wonder Chuck eventually felt burned out enough to
call it quits, but as he packed his bags to return to Canada, a call
came from the east coast asking him to join Danzig.  "I was asked,
'What will it take to get you here', and I said,  'a plane ticket."
Chuck this became a cherished member of Danzig.

"A great part of the band's appeal for Chuck is working with Glenn.
"He seriously doesn't give a damn what anybody else thinks about what
he does," he notes.  "He's the only musician I know as committed to
his ideas, and it scares people when they first encounter it."  Of
all his previous band experiences, he is proudest of his body of work
with Danzig.  "On the first record, we weren't so sure within
ourselves what we were doing as a band, but now, there's no doubt."
Like his bandmates, Chuck is resolute about Danzig's refusal to
compromise.  But that only makes success that much sweeter.

"Chuck Biscuits plays a '70's-era refitted Ludwig kit, Tama hardware,
and Zildjian Earthride cymbals."

JOEY CASTILLO (drummer from Sept. 1994 onwards)
b. 3/30/66
Former drummer of LA based Punk band WASTED YOUTH and SUGARTOOTH,
Joey joined Danzig in September of 1994 to replace Chuck Biscuits.
His first live show with Danzig was at their free show at the Whiskey
in Los Angeles on October 4, 1994 to promote the release date of
"4p". .  (I have no other biographical date as yet - can anybody
