   "I am a walking screaming hell/A thing of torture to behold"-it takes 
big stones to sell such lyrics, but burly Glenn Danzig proves pumped for 
the task. He has mastered both the yahoo manque yell of Jim Morrison 
circa "Roadhouse Blues" and a Lizard King whisper that suggests dark 
ceremonies, torchlit rites. Danzig's tightest set, 4 uncorks John 
Christ's Black Sabbath-spinoff guitar on bluesy goth rock, but the 
whiplash sound effects on "Sadistikal" risk redundancy, and "I Don't 
Mind the Pain" hilariously understates their case.
