Danzig: Albums 6-8

I've been listening to a lot of Danzig lately. I got the last three albums (Satan's Child, I Luciferi and Circle of Snakes) and I just love them. You can believe me when I say that they are good, as I've been a Danzig fan for more than ten years.
Album 6 and 7 are great and as sexy as ever (esp. No.6.), whereas I was a bit disappointed with album 8, Circle of Snakes, when I first listened to it.
This is the one which is supposed to be the big return to the roots, though at times I feel that the music and the lyrics are just a bit too simple after such poetic ones as those on 4.
However, I realized that my main problem with the album was just that there's a bit less erotica included, at least in the first half of it, than what we are used to from Glenn, our Evil Elvis, who continuously plays the role of the ultimate bad guy, the sort of demonic lover that women like to phantasize about so much. (Yes, they do. Just show me a woman who does not think that Angel or Spike is a hottie. Do you see what I mean? Women are attracted to the Wickham type of characters, and Glenn's roles are just the ultimate wicked ones. You can never know whether he's just thinking of something nasty and exciting or he really wants to do you some harm, but you enjoy to listen to him tremendously.) In addition to that, he has a great voice.
Danzig is a legendary band, so I don't think there's a need for an introduction here. However, if you like metal, but for some reason, still do not know Danzig, do not hesitate to give it a try.
These songs are really dark, outrageous, unique and exciting, and full of, full of energy.
