Danzig has signed to The End Records. The first record to be releasing through the deal is titled Deth Red Sabaoth and is due out June 22, 2010. Frontman Glenn Danzig commented on the record:
I’ve been told several times that the album has a cool vitality to it, it sounds energized, and I got that feeling when I was recording it. I wanted it to have an organic sound, bigger and thicker, so I went out and bought some 1970’s Kustom tuck ‘n roll bass amps to play some of the guitar parts through. You’ll hear real reverb, real tremolo on this album, which sounds completely different than the stuff that’s done with computer chips.
His backing band features guitarist Tommy Victor (Prong, Ministry) and drummer Johnny Kelly (Type O Negative, Seventh Void). Glenn took bass duties for the recording. The trio plan to tour to support the record this year with dates promised shortly.
