Powered by Audioscrobbler™There are 9 bands sharing this name.

1) Samhain was an American punk rock band formed by vocalist Glenn Danzig in 1983, immediately following his departure from the Misfits, and active until 1987. Samhain played in more of a 'deathrock' and heavy metal-infused style of 'horror punk' than Danzig's previous band. Samhain and its successor, Danzig, use the same horned skull image originally drawn by artist Michael Golden for the cover of the 1984 comic book The Saga of Crystar No. 8, published by Marvel. The font often used in the name logo of Samhain, and later Danzig, is taken from the film The Giant Gila Monster.

Danzig took the name of the band from the ancient Celtic New Year, Samhain, the origin of the modern Halloween. The band's name is typically pronounced "sam-hane", though when the word occurs in song lyrics, Danzig himself pronounces it "sah-win," the same as the pronunciation of the eponymous holiday.

Samhain's lyrics were darker than those of the Misfits, with themes rooted in paganism and the occult and eventually the horrors of reality, as opposed to the sometimes cartoonish monster themes of the Misfits. Samhain's musical style was a dark, gritty, and experimental combination of punk, gothic rock, and on the last album, heavy metal.
