DanzigDeth Red Sabaoth (Evilive)
Where's Rick Rubin when you need him? Lead-off "Hammer of the Gods" misses his flat sonic anvil in the separation of oracle from ocean, though succeeding burp gun "The Revengeful" discharges like one of the überproducer's concrete beatings. "Black Candy" licks its amorous snarl with more fuzzy tongue but also a tart melodic center to go with the rest of Deth Red Sabaoth. Oil fire guitars ("Ju Ju Bone"), Sabaoth ("Night Star Hel"), and 10 combined minutes on a pair of fiery "Pyre of Souls" means Deth. Glenn Danzig, hellhound still.
