The last time we talked about Glenn Danzig on this site it was because he got punched in the face and knocked out by one of his opening bands. But now, the "Godfather of dark metal", as his press release calls him, is putting all that behind him. This September, Danzig will take to the open road along with a handful of other hardcore/dark/black metal bands in an effort to scare school kids, priests and housewives all across the nation. Chimaira, Behemoth, Himsa, Mortiis (ex-Emperor) and The Agony Scene, all of which have signed agreements that prohibit them from punching Danzig in the face, have all joined up with the tour.
Dubbed "Blackest Of The Black", the tour is now in its second year. The idea behind it is to pull together hard rocking bands that sell out venues and sell records, but don't get played on the radio or MTV. "It's anti the corporate crap nu-rap-metal that gets shoved down fans' throats at other concerts," said Danzig as he ripped the head off of a baby kitten and drank its blood with a curly straw.
The tour routing will be announced soon, but we DO know for sure that it will wrap up somewhere on the west coast on Halloween. Until then, you can watch the video of Danzing getting knocked out. Sorry, I just think it's pretty funny.
