American rock band Samhain was founded in 1983. The band was founded by Glenn Danzig of the Misfits as a side-project. Later, the Misfits broke up and the band became Danzig’s full-time project. The original band’s line-up composed of Glenn Danzig (Vocals/guitar/keyboards/drums, songwriter), Brian Baker (quickly left the band), Lyle Preslar (guitar, left the band soon), Steve Zing (drums). The band evolved into the band Danzig in 1987. In 1999, they reunited for a tour. The band’s name comes for ancient Celtic New Year. The band’s image was different of the Misfits’. The lyrics were much darker and the band’s style can be classified as horror punk, gothic rock, heavy metal. The band supported this image not only in lyrics but on stage as well. They were often seen covered in blood. The last band’s album is Final Descent (1990). You can download this album by Samhain in mp3 from our site.
