The third full-length studio album by legendary American Heavy/Blues/Gothic/Doom Metal band.
The highest to chart album at the time of its release in 1992 on Def American Recordings. It's marks a departure from the previous Danzig albums and featured more of a Doom and Gothic Metal sound.
Featuring disturbing cover art from H.R. Giger, the album continues to expand the band's musical range; rather than pounding away at simple Blues riffs, the Atmospheric title track 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.
Blues legend Willie Dixon had agreed to guest on the track "Heart of the Devil", but died before the recording session was scheduled.
Music videos were released for the songs "How the Gods Kill", "Dirty Black Summer", "Bodies" and "Sistinas". A live performance of the song "Left Hand Black" has also been released.
Retaining and perfecting all their Rock and Roll glory, while adding a thick layer of Atmosphere, Danzig reached their apex with their third album. Twenty years later, it hasn't shown its age in the slightest.
