Misfits - 221
Danzig - 37
Samhain - 24
In my opinion you can't really go wrong with any of these choices. Love him or hate him, the guy has one hell of an impressive resume. I honestly had a tough time deciding just which band I personally liked more. Misfits would probably be the easy answer (as it proved to be for most), but the first four Danzig records are pretty much flawless in my book. I know, I know, most of you wrote him off after Danzig II, "Lucifuge", but if you've never heard Danzig IV, you're doing yourself a great disservice. Sure the album cover may suck, but when you tear into the first track, "Brand New God", forget about it... Danzig at his best.
A few years ago I stumbled upon this Danzig video on YouTube. It's from September 16th, 1994 in San Jose California and he's doing "Brand New God". Although the quality isn't perfect and you have to have a few seconds of patience at the very start of the video due to some bodies in the way, the energy and sound captured in this particular video is pretty damn impressive. Check it out... all hail Danzig. -Tim DCXX
