Hit Parader, 1992

Hit or Miss

   Glenn Danzig is the "Mr. Mean" of heavy metal. It's a rep this muscular 
rocker puts to good use on his band's latest release How The Gods Kill. This 
is metal played with an intensity that often borders on the maniacal. From 
the bizarre H.R. Geiger cover to such tunes as Godless, Dirty Black Summer 
and When The Dying Calls this is a disc clearly not for the faint of heart. 
Will it be the album that finally brings Danzig commercial success to match 
their critical acclaim? Probably not--it's just too unrelenting for that. 
But perhaps the time is finally right for Glenn and his band of not-so-merry 
men to make it big. They deserve whatever recognition they get simply for 
having the guts to play metal the way it was meant to be played.
