Danzig: Skeletons

Album Review

Horror punk god fails to cover himself in glory

The setup for Skeletons is mouthwatering – the genre-smashing visionary that is Glenn Danzig surveys a lifetime of influences, cherry-picking a succulent array of meaty anthems and juicy deep cuts and recasts them through his obscenely darkened vision.

With a tracklist co-mingling croony standards by Elvis and the Everly Brothers with sleazy belters from Aerosmith, Sabbath and others, Skeletons lacks neither variety nor ambition. The finished product, however, falls badly short of the bar raised by Danzig’s previous work.
