Danzig is great but . . .

"Far be it from me to give a bad review to anything Danzig does because I love Glenn dearly but I was a bit disappointed. There's just not enough Danzig here! To put it simply, if you love Danzig's music, you'll get 6 music videos in different formats, some directed by the man himself. You will purchase this item, you will enjoy seeing Glenn, you will sing along and have a good time (I think Danzig fans will grab anything they can get their hands on!). I would like to see a compilation DVD of all of Danzig's videos with some interviews thrown in for good measure. That would make me happier. Until then, I suppose I will have to stick with this!"
Seems like a waste of money

"Until You Call on the Dark" is presented in two different ways. The first is the original "live" performance version that features a couple of dominatrix and Glenn wearing a dirty hood, playing to a frenzied crowd behind the tattered net. The second version is basically just footage from the one camera that was on Danzig. I don't really see much difference between the two stop motion videos for "Cantspeak", except maybe the archive clips that are used.
For the song "I Don't Mind the Pain" you get three versions; the MTV version, a version that contains Danzig by himself (basically b-roll from the original), and a version of just the band (same thing-b roll). "Sadistikal" comes in the original black and white version, as well as a color/black & white mix (nice boobie shots). "Sacrifice" is the only video that stands alone, as Glenn hangs high above his rabid fans. "Serpentia" also comes in its regular form, and b-roll form.
Despite what the packaging tells you, you're really only getting five videos. Adding up the different versions you get twelve. Call me crazy, but it make more sense to release a DVD of all of your videos rather than from two albums (two albums that came out long ago).
This DVD seems like a waste of money unless you're a die-hard fan that must have absolutely everything Danzig ever produced. Five videos (despite the useless b-roll versions) just aren't worth it. I'm sure one day Glenn will release all his videos on one DVD. You might as well wait for that.
Did You Know?"

"I love Danizg and always have. From his Misfits material, to Samhain, to his solo stuff, I've been a lifelong Danzig fan, and have yearned for a video collection for quite some time. When "Archive de la Morte" came out not too long ago, I thought that my prayers would have been answered, and they were a bit, because I finally had a small collection of the Evil Elvis' videos. Now, "Il Demonio Nera" follows the same suit, giving you what is really five videos, just with different edits and cuts which produces some different versions of said videos. Yes, you get "Sacrifice" and some others, and the videos are quite good, but even at the pretty modest price, I can't help but feel a bit ripped off. When it comes to band DVD's, I usually hope that they're packed to the brim with features, and there's no such luck here, but all things considering, this is still worth picking up for Danzig fans. All in all, you already know whether you're going to pick this up or not, let's just hope the next time Danzig releases something on DVD, it's something really special."
