    Walt Disney Co.'s Hollywood Records will release an album from 
    Danzig, a heavy metal singer whose songs contain satanic themes.
    "Blackacidevil" will hit record stores on Oct. 30, the day before 
    Halloween. A danzig spokeswoman said the new album has no satanic 
    references but does have "dark, Gothic and sexual" overtones.
    The recording artist, she said, denies he is a satanist.
    Financially troubled Hollywood Records lured Danzig from a Time 
    Warner Inc. label with a reported seven figure deal. The move was 
    unprecedented for Hollywood Records, which, in keeping with Disney's 
    wholesome image, had stayed away from rap and other explicit music.

    Hollywood Records spokeswoman Sue Sawyer also said the new album has 
    no satanic messages. "It's only rock 'n' roll," Sawyer said. "For 40 
    years people have been scandalized by it."
