Watch DANZIG Perform At 'Blackest Of The Black' Festival
May 29, 2017
Fan-filmed video footage of DANZIG's performance at this year's edition of the "Blackest Of The Black" festival, which took place May 26-27 at Oak Canyon Park in Silverado, California, can be seen below. The two-day event featured over twenty artists — including MINISTRY, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES and CORROSION OF CONFORMITY — with DANZIG serving as headliner on May 27.
Prior to this year's installment, Danzig had taken the "Blackest Of The Black" tour on the road six times: 2003, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2010 and 2015. Past outings of the several-band package have included a cross-section of supporting acts, both veteran and up-and-coming groups in the metal underground like SUPERJOINT, TOXIC HOLOCAUST, POSSESSED, BEHEMOTH, MORTIIS, WITHERED, SKELETONWITCH and MOONSPELL, to name a few.
Ahead of the 2017 installment of the "Blackest Of The Black", Danzig told Rolling Stone magazine: "It's going to be insane. I don't think anyone's seen anything like it. You've seen the bands on there; it's not your normal festival. For DANZIG, this is the twenty-fifth anniversary of 'How The Gods Kill', so we're going to be pulling out at least five or six songs from that album — 'Dirty Black Summer', 'Godless', 'Left Hand Black', 'Bodies' or 'How The Gods Kill'. It's gonna be cool. We'll maybe play some new ones. Then we'll play just a bunch of stuff everybody wants to hear."
DANZIG's first album of all-new material since 2010's widely acclaimed "Deth Red Sabaoth", "Black Laden Crown", was released on May 26 via Evilive Records/Nuclear Blast Entertainment.
