5.0 out of 5 stars As much a classic band as the Misfits 7 Jun 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Samhain is the band Danzig set up after the Misfits (like you'd be reading this if you didn't know that). Often left in the shadow of all the praise heaped upon the Misfits, Samhain produced some classics. This is the best place to start being the most Danzig-like, blues influenced of the lot. Make sure to buy this version, though, with the second half made up of songs from the Unholy Passions EP. You really shouldn't miss out on the The Hungry End - I guarantee it will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end...

3.0 out of 5 stars outdated 15 Oct 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Danzig was only ever good in the misfits and on his own. This album is nowhere near as good as something like Walk Among Us by the misfits. The production is terrible (even by Samhain standards) and the version of twist of cain is poor in comparison to the one on the first Danzig album. However, being a completist, I bought this album to finish off my collection, and thats the only thing to recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars NOT THE FINAL DESCENT 16 Nov 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you've found previous SAMHAIN works to be to your liking then you won't be disappointed with FINAL DESCENT. This album doesn't diviat from the other SAMHAIN releases & actually contains the whole EP-UNHOLY PASSION (tracks 6-9 & 11 were released as the EP UNHOLY PASSION back in 85 but in different versions). FINAL DESCENT is well worth the price escpecially if you don't have the UNHOLY PASSION material tacked on the end of your INITIUM tape (released in 86) or on the CD version from 87. Other than those repeat songs the other 6 tracks had never been released before. Look forward as well to the much anticipated SAMHAIN BOX SET which will be packed with all previous releases, unreleased material (SAMHAIN recorded most of DANZIG's first album, let's see how they sounded before RICK RUBIN got ahold of them) & a live video!

3.0 out of 5 stars The final descent for Samhain 9 Feb 2003
By Patrick T. Grady - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Like others have said before, this is not Samhain's best work. The original version of "Final Descent" contained the first five tracks on this CD and the rest was filled out with the "Unholy Passion" EP. But now "Unholy Passion" is available on its own (and is worth picking up) and this CD is rounded out with 4 demos, 3 of which ended up becoming Danzig (the band) songs. To me, most of this sounds like it could be a Danzig demo or outtake CD more than a Samhain album. Any one of these songs, with a little work, could have ended up as a Danzig tune. In fact, original Danzig guitarist John Christ is featured on 4 of the first 5 songs (and original Danzig bassist Eerie Von was the only constant member of Samhain, aside Glenn Danzig himself). Danzig himself plays drums, guitar, keyboards, and sings on the first 5 songs, too. As for the new demos tacked on, I believe Steve Zing and Damien are playing with the band, but I'm not sure. There are no credits on this re-release.

This one is really for Samhain and Danzig enthusiasts. Anyone interested in getting into Samhain is best off starting anywhere else.

5.0 out of 5 stars it's definitely not pop music 10 May 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
THIS IS SOME OF DANZIG'S FINEST WORK.ALSO THE LAST OF THE ALBUMS BY THIS GROUP; THE BAND WOULD GO ON TO BECOME KNOWN AS DANZIG. WRITTEN BY GLENN; THESE SONGS SERVED TO BRING US ALL ANOTHER TWISTED X-MAS, WITH ALL THE SOUNDS OFHORROR AND THE NOT SO IFREQUENT CHORUS OF PAIN-FILLED MOANING. ADD TO THIS ANASSORTMENT OF SLOW-GROOVE PUNK SONGS AND YOU ARE ONE STEP CLOSER TO SONIC HEAVEN.HIGH POINTS INCLUDE: A REMAKE OF THE MISFIITS CLASSIC ALL HELL[YOU CAN UNDERSTAND THE LYRICS], AND THE BEAUTIFUL MISERY TOMB[GOTTA LOVE THAT MOANING]. IT IS A SHAME TO SEE THAT THESE SAMHAIN ALBUMS ARE OUT OF PRINT.HOPEFULLY, GLENN AND CAROLINE RECORDSCAN RECTIFY THIS SOON.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Samhain's best, but pretty damn good! 9 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you love Samhain as much as I do, You'll really dig the tracks Descent, andDeath...In It's Arms. Lords of the Left hand and The Birthing are pretty cool too.
4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. Some of Samhain's best 28 Nov 2005
By GOJO - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Every Samhain album is solid gold, but Final Descent may be my favorite. It fuses what was best about Samhain and what is best about Danzig into one unholy beast! It has Danzig's good production values and a heavier Danzig-esque sound while keeping the some of Samhain's general "vibe" and attitude. In my opinion Lords of the Left Hand, Death...In It's Arms, Descent, Night Chill, and Unholy Passion (that infectious as hell drum beat!!) are among Danzig's best stuff ever. I don't get why this album is routinely snubbed in favor of the albeit excellent Initium and November-Coming-Fire. If you like anything Danzig has done, outside of Misfits (casual misfits fans who don't like danzig's followup stuff, AVOID!) pick this up! I COMMAND YOU!
