If you're doing a Holiday Gift Guide, consider including the "3 Faces of Danzig," an ultra-cool, limited edition, toy figure series that is the perfect Holiday gift for the music fan who really does have everything.
Three fully-articulated figures make up the collection that highlight different eras of Glenn Danzig's career - "Misfits-version" Danzig which wears his classic skull-and-crossbones black T-shirt from the Misfits' "Walk Among Us" album cover; "Samhain-version" Danzig, covered in dripping blood ala the "Initium" LP cover, and "Danzig-version" Danzig, which is shirtless and comes complete with the trademark Danzig belt buckle and upside-down-cross medallion necklace as on the "Lucifuge" album. The figures are made of soft vinyl, stand 10-inches tall and retail for $75.00 each.
The "3 Faces of Danzig" toy figures are being manufactured by the Japanese company Medicom and sold in the U.S. By the Chaser Merchandising
Company in stores such as Spencer Gifts, Hot Topic, comic book/specialty stores, and on the Chaser website
Glenn Danzig has just released "Black Aria II" (evilive), his second thematic classical album and the follow up to 1993's "Black Aria," which debuted at #1 on Billboard's Classical Albums chart. "Black Aria II" is based on Lilith, the mythological first wife of Adam, and of it, Village Voice Media wrote, "...the instrumentals surpass the wonderful eerieness of anything the auteur has ever written...Eternal doom never sounded so beautiful."
