Danzig Premieres New Single "Devil on HWY 9"

If you have been craving some new Danzig tunes in your life, then your wish has been granted. The evil Elvis of heavy metal Glenn Danzig just put out a crunchy and shredtastic first single to his upcoming album Black Laden Crown (due out May 26, 2017) titled Devil on HWY 9 (which you can listen to by clicking the video above).

Overall it is a pretty solid track. The riffs and rhythms will pound out your ear drums till they bleed (in the best way possible, of course), the guitar solos are blistering and lightning quick, and Danzig's trademark vocal style is there to put the cherry on top of the icing.

The only thing I will nitpick about this track is that you can definitely tell that Glenn has aged. You can hear it in his voice big time. He doesn't have that smooth Jim Morrison/Elvis timbre to his voice any more. You can still tell that it's him, but I wouldn't go in expecting to hear the same voice from 30 years ago. That said, I understand that Danzig can't really help that and will cut him some slack. As I said, it's still overall a solid track and I'm interested in hearing what the rest of it will sound like.
