  1. Like the classic horror movies that have inspired so much of Danzig's work, the new record delivers the thrills and chills that fans would hope for, and that Danzig, at his best, is so good at serving up. [Jul/Aug 2010, p.88]
  2. He comes closer to rediscovering the excitement, ethereal looseness and raucous twang that epotomizes his first three efforts than he has any time in the past 15 years. [Jul 2010, p.123]
  3. It's his understanding of the niche he's carved for himself--a love affair with darkness and sludgy rock braced with stripper-worthy blues rhythms--that makes his continued output worthwhile.
  4. After having worked out some of his (hopefully) passing interests in industrial and classical music over the past few years, Danzig has finally come close to once more nailing what he's known for--sick, spooky rock 'n' roll that isn't afraid of a little croon.
  5. Where's Rick Rubin when you need him? Lead-off "Hammer of the Gods" misses his flat sonic anvil in the separation of oracle from ocean, though succeeding burp gun "The Revengeful" discharges like one of the ├╝berproducer's concrete beatings.
  6. Deth Red Sabaoth sounds like what a lot of the Samhain/Misfits fans wanted the group's 1988 debut to be: a raw, dirty, D.I.Y. collection of comic book-inspired violence, thrust together by the unholy union of punk and metal.
  7. A compelling return from the godfather of goth-punk. [3 Jul 2010, p.51]
