It's fantastic. The first few times i heard it I was all "Oh congratulations, Glenn - you've just invented The Cult" but I've been listening to it ever since, so the guy's done something right...

So how do practices work when you’re the primary songwriter?
I’m the only songwriter.

Do you show up with prewritten parts? Do you say, “Hey, Tommy, here’s the new part”?
This is the same question you would ask Bowie or somebody.

Yeah, but I’m never going to get to meet Bowie. You’re it.
You’ve never been able to ask this question before?

I’ve never spoken with anybody who’s reached this point in their career.
Oh, OK. Well, basically I write the songs, I bring them down, show everybody their part, and then we play it until it sounds good.

I previously gave up on Danzig when Samhain started going metal (circa Samhain III I guess). I've actually never listened to this album, suppose it's time to get back on board.

I saw Sleater-Kinney cover Mother once, that was pretty good.

Here’s a question I’ve always had. Have you heard of Jerusalem syndrome? That’s the thing where normal tourists go to the Holy Land, freak out, and convince themselves they’re John the Baptist or Jesus.
I’ve never heard of that.

It’s a recognized psychological phenomenon.
I’ve never heard of it.

I guess it’s not that well known. I didn’t make it up, though.
All right. ’Cause I read a lot.

This is my first Danzig album listen. Love it. Heavy grooves. Heavily leaning on the rock and roll side of the metal spectrum.

Finished just before my walk to work, which is about 45 minutes, so it passes the album length test.

Surprised and delighted how solid it is.
