Danzig "Devil's Angels" (Davie Allan & the Arrows cover)
Published May 09, 2012Glenn Danzig still hasn't revealed the full details to his long-pending covers album, which apparently tackles classics by the likes of Elvis Presley and Black Sabbath. He has, however, just revealed one cut from the collection, a punked-up version of Davie Allan & the Arrows' "Devil's Angels."
Danzig is streaming the song, full of brawny power chords and his barrel-chested crooning, over here on his website. The earlier version by Davie Allan & the Arrows originally appeared as the theme song to the 1967 film of the same name starring John Cassavetes.
"I've wanted to record this song since 1979 and this is exactly the same arrangement I had for it back then, so it pretty much sounds like that late '70s style of mine," Danzig said in a statement. "I'm really happy with the way it turned out; it actually came out much better than I had hoped it would."
