GLENN DANZIG / Black Aria (1992)

Black Aria isn’t typical Danzig; it’s dark, sinister and classical. Yes, classical.
All instruments were played by Glenn; there are strings, synthesisers, piano and occasional female voice courtesy of Renee Rubach. The album suffers from too much synth and never really achieves the grandeur of what much of it tries to evoke (Milton’s Paradise Lost), but it’s an interesting aside to Danzig’s usual work. Good luck trying to find a copy; it's rarer than dodo piss.
