Danzig DVD In July
Personally combing through the Danzig vaults, Glenn Danzig chose the tracks for the "Il Demonio Nera" DVD which offer a variety of versions of Danzig classics such as "I Don"t Mind The Pain," "Serpentia," "Cantspeak" and "Until You Call on the Dark." Danzig"s choice of directors for these videos was certainly inspired: Dean Karr, who directed the video for "Until You Call on the Dark," went on to direct Marilyn Manson"s "Sweet Dreams" video and Iron Maiden "Rock in Rio" concert full-length; and the never-before-released video for "Serpentia" from Danzig 5, was directed by E. Elias Merhige who helmed the feature film "Shadow of the Vampire starring John Malkovich and Willem Dafoe.
"Il Demonio Nera" is just the latest project from Glenn Danzig, arguably one of the most versatile talents to emerge from hardcore"s first wave. His most current Danzig album, "Circle of Snakes," was released last fall; his "Black Aria 2" CD will be released later this year, and he is getting ready to direct "Gerouge," his first feature film for Rainstrom Productions.
"Il Demonio Nera" will be Danzig"s second DVD collection of vintage videos "Danzig Archive De La Morte," which features videos from "Danzig 3" and "Thralldemonsweatlive" was released in 2003.
