      …is horrible. True story, anyone who wanted a free copy of that album on release day just needed to walk on my street as a neighbor of mine tossed it out of his window in disgust on the way back from the record store. I’m a Danzig purist.

    Good list, but would have been nice to have samples.

    Hehe you might as well add the whole, Frankenstein Drag Queens from Planet 13, 6 Years, 6 Feet under The Influence album onto the list 😉 Always a great listen at Halloween!

    My Halloween playlist is always Misfits heavy (Danzig only, sorry Graves/Only fans), with a dash of Samhain and “Black Aria,” for mood. Then I mix in some Dio, Maiden, Type O, Devin Townsend, Ghost, Bodom, and of course cap it all off with some “Thriller.”

    Great list 🙂 IMHO Type 0 Negative and Helloween (the band) should be in the list… and also I’d throw in some Goblin (the band that made the best Dario Argento’s movie soundtracks)

    Hey James, if you’re looking for more so party halloween music, have you tried the band creature feature. They are a little more obscure but I think they are great.

    This list is sorely lacking the pinnacle Halloween song… “Halloween” by Helloween! German Power Metal! Skip the butchered single version, though…
