The second full-length studio album by legendary American Heavy/Blues Metal band.
"Lucifuge" was recorded over an eleven-month period, between June 1989 and May 1990; up to this point, it was the longest time Danzig had taken to make an album. It has a pronounced Blues influence that adds a sinister edge akin to records by Howlin' Wolf or Robert Johnson, who have both been accused of playing the "Devil's music". Thematically, a number of songs throughout the album ask questions about the concept of evil.
The album is stronger than its predecessor is. A dank Bluesy influence makes thundering riffs crunch and groove as the band delves into more styles than ever before. Rubin's production now is much fleshier, and Glenn exercises the theatrical Satanic-Pagan muscle-stud angle to entertaining effect. It was one of the most accomplished and absorbing Rock albums of the year, and a quantum leap for Danzig.
As with the debut album, "Lucifuge" was distributed by Geffen Records, but due to the nature of Danzig's music, the company refused to put its name on the packaging.
Music videos were released for the songs "Her Black Wings", "Killer Wolf", "I'm the One" and "Devil's Plaything".
In 2002, Spin Magazine named "Danzig II" the 33rd greatest Metal album of all time.
