Danzig - Danzig III: How The Gods Kill

Released : July 14, 1992
Recorded : 1991 - 1992
Genre : Heavy metal, blues rock, gothic metal, doom metal
Length : 49:12
Label : Def American Recordings
Producer : Glenn Danzig, Rick Rubin

Featuring disturbing cover art from H.R. Giger, Danzig's third album continues to expand the band's musical range; rather than pounding away at simple blues riffs, the atmospheric title track (yet another rewrite of "Twist of Cain," this time at a slower tempo) and the haunting ballad "Sistinas" attempt to match their music with the darkness of Glenn Danzig's lyrics, resulting in two of the album's high points. Danzig's vocals are more subtle in places, and John Christ's guitar work continues to improve. Arguably the definitive Danzig album.
