Skeletons Is The Tenth Studio Album By Danzig And Covers Songs Ranging From Elvis Presley To Black Sabbath
Pressed On Purple / Black Splatter Vinyl
The album had been talked about by Glenn Danzig for years, even prior to the previous effort of Deth Red Sabaoth. So far, it is difficult to determine when the entire album was recorded, as it has been talked about in interviews for so many years. In response to this, Glenn has stated: "I had to put it out now or else there would be so many songs I'd want to do that I wouldn't be able to do it. Even the way I did it, there are so many songs I still wanted to cover. My attitude with covers is, make it your own or else leave it alone."
As stated in an interview in 2011, Danzig initially thought of releasing a series of separate EPs: "So far I've done about seven or eight covers. There's a cover of Sixties band The Young Rascals and I'm doing a 'Nuggets' track too. 'Nuggets' were these pre-punk, psychedelic, garage albums. They produced a bunch of influential compilations in the early Seventies. So currently this is an on-going project, laying down as many tracks as I feel like and maybe releasing a seven- or eight-song EP of the best ones once they're done."
