I bought a copy last year, or year before, there is no bar code and the round out has mother 1 (side 1) and mother 2 (side 2) etched on either side. No indication of when it was released, anyone have one similar and know the date?

Great debut album that still got on my nerves every time i play this black wicked heavy macho metal band .

The whole songs is nasty as it get ..the endless hypnotising evil bluesy rock riff .. such a great beer drinking album !

It will drives our soul ..twist of cain ..make it come alive .... Label : Def American Recordings
Released : US 1988

Listening to „She rides“ let me imagine the reincarnation of the dark side of Jim Morrison from the Doors. Great performance!

But there seems to be as well an acustic influence by the 1987th album „Electric“ from the Cult. Coincidence? I guess not!

I have a grey, slightly marbled version of this. No identifiers. Except the run out Mother - A1 -B1. A few pops, and some light crackling in places. None of which you can hear on the actual tracks, so overall quite good. Cost me £10. Still, I think I should invest in a mint/near mint 1st pressing.

Aside from lovers/collectors of Misfits and Samhain, this is really the only Danzig album you need to own.
After this, Glenn's ego really went into overdrive. This album is great though, at times it sounds like Danzig is channelling the spirit of a decaying and cantankerous Elvis Presley. It perfectly captures the interesting aspects of heavy metal without the posturing and cheesy guitar solos. The production by Rick Rubin is unrivalled; the sound quality is so solid and clean throughout that each song flows perfectly into the next without a drop in intensity. The other interesting aspect of this album is the way Danzig’s lyrics convey an atmosphere of morbidity and barely restrained aggression without the use of profanity or gratuitous violence.
