Why I Love... Danzig by Dani Filth, Cradle Of Filth/Devilment
Metal's filthiest figurehead salutes Evil Elvis, the original Misfit...
DANZIG IS THE KING OF DARK ROCK
“He’s been dubbed Evil Elvis, and he’s definitely got that kind of lilt to him. He’s very distinctive, especially the first four albums, when he had Chuck Biscuits, Eerie Von and John Christ; that unit had a very distinctive sound to it as well, which was very bluesy and laidback, with lots of weird trills. It was very primal as well, very thuggish – Chuck Biscuits’ drums were certainly like that, when he used to stand up to play drums and bash the fuck out of the kit.
Glenn Danzig has a very distinctive voice and I think that’s part of the appeal, because it’s very original and it stands... I was going to say it stands heads and shoulders above over bands, but... ha ha ha!” [Ed’s note: Danzig isn’t the tallest bloke ever.]
